Spring Color Palette: Spa & Cream Bedroom

Spa and cream bedroom color palette

First and foremost, we believe a bedroom should be relaxing. This should be a space where you retreat, relax, and recover, so it’s important to make design choices that will help you achieve that relaxing feeling. For some people, that may mean a bright and cheery hue they love. Others, it may mean all white. For us, we just still can’t shake our love of spa. The perfect combination of gray, green, and blue, spa is our perfect color, so when designing the ultimate bedroom retreat, it was a no brainer.

For this bedroom, we put a slightly more modern twist on the space by using clean-lined furniture pieces (our Isabella Collection). We also stayed true to our color palette — everything is in either spa, cream, or a weathered wood finish. Having everything coordinate so perfectly makes the space feel serene and polished, perfect for when you want to relax.

A pair of our Mariette Table Lamps coordinate beautifully with this bedroom because of its simple but sculptural shape. This column shape has a more modern feel, which we really dig for this bedroom. For the overhead lighting, we used a Carriage House Chandelier in our Antique Silver finish. We love the way the shape of this chandelier echoes the trim pattern on our Isabella Collection.

For the final flourishes, we hung a pair of Memories Found Art over the bed. They work with our spa and cream color palette, and the silver frames complement our chandelier. And no room is complete without a couple of throw pillows. Here we used Savannah Burlap throw pillows in mineral.

Ask the Expert: Mark Williams on Bathroom Lighting

Bath lighting tips

Obviously, lighting is a pretty important factor in every room. But we say the bathroom is where lighting matters most. After all, it’s where you apply your makeup and where he shaves. It’s also where you see yourself in the mirror every morning and again in the evening before bedtime. At the sake of sounding vain, don’t you want that image to be its best? Well, then you really need the right lighting.

Winter Color Palette: Leopard & Orchid

Dining room color palette with leopard print and magenta accents

Suggesting you decorate your space with leopard and magenta sounds a bit intimidating; after all, both of those are quite bold! But for this dining banquette, the final space was actually quite restrained. To do that, we used a creamy white shade on the paneled walls and then brought in lots of accents of blacks, like the Paris Bistro Chairs and the ironwork on the Arturo 8-Light Chandelier.

Winter color palette of spa and creams

While creamy whites and watery blues may seem like a color palette for the Spring and Summer months, we love the way this look echoes the blankets of snow and cloudy days of winter too! Plus, a room like this helps to remind you that warm days will indeed will return.

Winter Color Palette: Mineral & Drift

Decorating a room with icy blues and neutrals

This Winter’s collection was very obviously inspired by icy blue likes mineral and aqua. Tempered by lots of taupes and grays, a few jolts of blue can really wake up a room and give it a fresh feel. Our Kaley Aqua fabric is one of our favorite new fabrics for our first 2015 collection. We love the way this pattern feels almost tribal but in vivid shades of blue. To pair with the Kaley Aqua, we used our Piper Mineral fabric. This crisp linen-cotton blend has a watercolor effect and a fun, updated dot print!
