Color Obsession: Mineral Greens

By: Danielle Cornely

This season’s colors pay homage to an often forgotten but pretty incredible palette: earth minerals. We’re seeing soft greens, crystal pinks, and light, earthy neutrals. Our favorite happens to be the greens, from soft mint to vibrant malachite. Here’s how to harness their power:

chrysophase necklace

A statement necklace in a subdued yet striking color, this J. Cotter design is the perfect way to always have healing stones on hand.

Emerald isn’t the only kind of green that looks great on sofas. Try out a saturated mint for a fresh feel.

This faded jade rug could easily be paired with other on-trend colors like blush or soft gold.

Soothe yourself to sleep in cool sage linen bedding.

Malachite art

This malachite wall art displays the natural beauty of green minerals, many of which are said to have healing properties.

Let nature inspire you this season with gem and mineral tones. Use soft hues for a calming environment, or amp up the energy with bolder, richer colors.

Hot Colors for Spring

By: Elisabeth Paulson

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: 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: 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: 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: 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.
