Palette for home

SBaird just created a palette for a home that needs updating for the real estate market. The client is thinking of selling in the near future, therefore creating a warm and soothing neutral palette was the goal.

Exterior colors of Wolf and Seed Pearl, Pratt and Lambert Paints and interior colors mostly of Seed Pearl. My client has incredible design acumen and did not need much help with furnishings and lighting. It all came together perfectly.

2012 color

2012 Color Forecasts

At the close of 2011 and beginning of 2012, all the major paint manufacturers released their 2012 color forecasts. Overall, we can decipher major themes – the influence of high fashion on the home, a movement towards a more modern neutral with varying shades of grey, the importance of a pop of a bright, contrasting color.

Farrow & Ball

      

Farrow & Ball predicts that unexpected color pairings and the influence of fashion’s color blocking trend are the major trends for the home in 2012. Their concise color forecast for 2012 includes: a beautiful dove gray, a subdued grey-lavender, rich charcoal, and goldenrod.

________________________________________________

Pratt & Lambert

This color Pratt & Lambert‘s Essence palette exudes serenity with a rich aubergine, ethereal lavender, a calming blue-grey,  neutral wheat, deep turquoise, and tasteful mauve + mint pastels.

I chose Hearthstone (28-27) for my study – it’s such a calming color.

________________________________________________

Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore‘s expansive color forecast includes several palettes playing upon different themes. My favorite of the five is the Earth & Sky palette, which includes Benjamin Moore’s color of the year Wythe Blue (HC-143).

Hello there! I’m Joanna, a guest blogger for Arcadian Lighting, a premier source for quality chandeliers, pendant lights, and other light fixtures. Itís my job to search the internet for the loveliest decorating ideas and images then edit them into a guest post such as this. Ultimately, I love sharing them with blog readers like you. Today, I have brought together a collection of earthy eclectic spaces which speak to my sensibilities as my personal style is quite an eclectic mix. Hope you enjoy!

Earthy Eclectic

An elegant and sophisticated living room pulls off an earthy eclectic decor beautifully. The sumptuous carpet is one from the Vicente Wolf Designerís Reserve collection.

Minimal eclectic furnishings in this rustic Tuscan bedroom offer a sense of simplicity and serenity.

A nature-themed home office boasts earthy elements such as the wicker chair, botanical print rug, avian art, and live plants. I love the small glass globe lighting fixture, somehow it seems just right for the space.

This light-filled living room offers bits of eclectic earthy elements such as the coffee table made of branches and colors of the sea and sand.

An eclectic mix of earthy elements makes this tablescape casual and inviting. The moss-covered log at the back of the chairs is an interesting touch. Can’t you just imagine enjoying a brunch in this setting with your friends?

This mossy stone exterior graces a Mediterranean home in the Tuscan countryside. The aged iron and wood give it so much character.
