Styling Warm Colors
As the weather warms up, you might be feeling tired of gray days and cold colors. To counter this, add some heat to your space with spicy cinnamons, burnt orange, burgundy and earthy tones. Worried that adding browns back into your space will feel too much like Grandma’s home from the 70’s? Read on for how to style warm colors to make your space feel modern and welcoming.
1. Bring back the Brown!
Brown leather is having a revival, and the best way to embrace this is with modern and contemporary shapes and silhouettes. Choose items with chrome or silver hardware to keep these brown pieces firmly in the future, and combine with trending textures like sheepskin, boucle, or a checkered rug to keep your space feeling fresh.
2. Why not Walnut?
We all know that Walnut was the star of the 1950’s Mid-Century movement, but adding touches of this warm-toned wood into any space will definitely bring some much-needed heat. Combine with lime-washed walls for an organic yet contemporary feel.
3. Embrace earthiness with Orange
Don’t be afraid of adding a feature color like Orange into your space! To prevent it from looking garish, complement oranges with greens (throws, plants, paintings) for an earthy touch.
4. Keep Golden hour Going
Ditch the downlights and embrace the lamps, chandeliers and pendants for a golden hour that lasts all evening. Use brass, gold, or burgundy to cast golden light over your space and keep the gloomy grays away.
