Recently we’ve found ourselves drawn to shades of deep teal. Until we can make our way to salt water, this beautiful picture will have to do!

Hot Colors for Spring

By: Elisabeth Paulson

Hot colors composite

Spring is the perfect season for bright and bold color combinations – fire hot corals and oranges that contrast with tried and true jade greens and almost-black blues. The end result is a classic, edgy, and fresh look that elevates the style of any room.

lava long

LAVA: With this red-orange hue, the bolder the better. From lips to bags to bedsheets, we say bring it on. Not for the timid, this Louis Nui bedding from Trina Turk should add a little fire to your night.

jade long

JADE: Tonal subtleties ranging from army to olive green make jade a timeless foundation to play off of. We’re fans of the Rhys Chair from Anthropologie for a big impact, or you can keep it simple with the Hiddenite Glass Sculpture from our good friends Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams.

citrus long

CITRUS: Lemon yellow adds zing to any room. A fresh, fun color, it’s perfect for making an accent piece really pop. Shown above is the Upbeat Table Lamp from Currey & Company.

ink long

INK: We are loving the almost-black gradient these days. This green-blue-black tone looks rich in luscious velvets and slick lacquer. Above, this color is featured as a full-panel wallpaper, Aurora Peat, by Calico Wallpaper.

hot coral long

HOT CORAL: While technically in the lava family, this pink has a purpose. Pair it with any neutral to go from bland to bold. In this woven cotton Gypsy Rug from Dash & Albert, hot coral plays the leading role.

Color Obsession: Autumn Explosion

Autumn is in full swing and color is everywhere! Let’s take a minute to appreciate the full range of hues this season has to offer. Of course there’s burnt ochres, fiery reds, and rich browns, but there is also a whole palette of gorgeous, less known colors. Chartreuse, aubergine, and cool grey are the supporting cast, and we think it’s time for them to shine.
