Farrow & Ball’s Oval Room Blue. A grey blue that is a soft by darkened historic shade of blue. It is because of its deep undertones (keeping in mind that tones and shades refer to adding grey/black to a color, while tint is added white) that the blue feels so aged and classically timeless. It pairs beautifully with popular modern greys and creates a deep, cozy ambiance, yet the color provides a lovely, stable background against which vibrant accent colors can pop. Similarly, Restoration Hardware’s Dusk is a muted, sophisticated grey-blue that leans just slightly heavier toward the blue spectrum than other grey blues. The shade is soft enough that it can work almost as a neutral. Almost. But when paired with other neutrals, the color becomes a lovely harmonious thread that brings everything together. It is fresh without feeling zesty, delightful without overdoing.
Pantone’s Autumn Maple. A burnt orange that provides an instantaneous fresh pop of salsa-inspired color, not just in autumn but actually anytime of year. A gorgeous, inviting hue that rests somewhere in the blend between a rich cognac color and brick red, rust color exudes characteristics of orange that we know and love (joy, confidence, warmth, energy, and creativity, among others), balanced with gravity and earthy common sense.
Anything shaped like a hexagon looks nice in a modern and minimalist setting. An interesting idea suggested on cottonandcurls is to use a shadowbox to create a succulent planter which can be displayed on walls. If you’re worried about how you’re going to water the succulents or the lack of sunlight, you can use faux plants instead.
The Vidpusk story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Alouria Mackenzie launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture.
