Balancing Your Space with Masculine and Feminine Decor

Some of our favorite spaces exemplify what founding editor of Domino Magazine, Deborah Needleman, describes as the perfectly imperfect home — one that’s both lived in and loved. So much of achieving that look comes down to striking the right balance in your decor, from the shape and scale of your furniture to the color palette to the amount of light sources in the room.

Fall Color Palette: Cranberry & Onyx

By |Decorating, Offices, Tips & Ideas|0 Comments|

Fall color palette inspiration

On the cover of our August catalog, we went bold with red and black, or as we like to call it, Cranberry and Onyx. We chose deep, rich reds and paired them charcoals and blacks, both with a little hint of shine. Our new Morgan pendant in Bronze is a particular favorite, especially in this space, because of its clean lines and subtlety shiny finish. We reinforced that shiny black finish by using our Durham Desk and our Allen Stools, which both have iron frames for that have a slight reflective quality.

Bringing in that rich red was too easy — we used some of our favorite new pieces for Fall, like our Beckett Hand Knotted Rug, our Sydney Berry fabric, and our Linen Flange Pillows in Pomegranate. Together, these pieces feel tailored, rich, and even a little masculine. What a cozy workspace this would make for Fall! But you could just as easily reinterpret it into a bedroom with our Annabel bedding, and upholstered headboard and some Durham side tables. How would you use this color palette in your home?
