Farrow & Ball’s Stony Ground. A cool beige that is a perfectly inviting neutral that mimics mushroom hues. In fact, mushroom is predicted by some to be the next hottest neutral of choice. Whether in a peaceful zen retreat or a fast-paced urban living space, mushroom color has a visual effect that is therapeutically calming. This color steps up the chic factor (and contemporary aesthetic) of a traditional beige but maintains that soft warmth that helps to create a feeling of home in nearly any circumstance.
Banish the beige! Yes a neutral palette can be pleasing but for many homeowners, it can be a bit boring, so adding a pop of color is common. But maybe it’s time to break out of the box and add some prints to your room, and not just a with a pillow or your window treatment. How about a piece of furniture in a full-on print that says “wow”? When it comes to furniture decorating with prints can be fun and adds a lot of interest to a room. Just one piece of printed furniture can enliven a ho-hum living space. Designers have created lots of options that go far beyond big florals and that old 70’s plaid.
Fine Paints of Europe’s Windsor Pink. A millennial pink that is neither juvenile nor sticky sweet. This isn’t a pink that leans toward peach color; rather, its grey undertones make it much duskier, more mature, and appropriate for use as a neutral. Like the trend toward lighter shades of greyish violet that we’ve already discussed, this ballet slipper-y pink is a popular paint color that adroitly blurs the line between masculine and feminine, friendly and poised.
