Gray and Brown Home Design Inspiration Board

Not sure if my mind is craving constant stimulation or if I’m just not boring, but living in a monochromatic space doesn’t juice me up.  They’re absolutely gorgeous when well designed but it’s not what I want surrounding me in my own home.  I do love a beautiful neutral space but I like the dynamics of contrast and the way depth of color creates shadows and highlights.

This gray and brown home design inspiration board illustrates how beautifully you can create a neutral color palette with opposing hues that take advantage of those visual highs and lows, keeping us interested and wanting to revisit.

Navy Blue Interiors with Hints of Copper and Emerald Green

Navy Blue interiors are classic!!   Often associated with nautical themes, navy blue is much more complex and sophisticated than red, white and blue.   I like to pair navy with shades of brown and taupe.  Metallic finishes can be silver or gold tones, but I prefer shades of copper and gold.  And if you really want to add a layer of depth, throw in a few accents of emerald green!

Room Design: Orange you Golden!

Room Design Orange:  I love layering shades of orange, terra cotta and cinnamon with metallic gold tones, tans and browns.  The end result is a really warm inviting space but the metallic accents turn up the notch a bit.   I lean toward more modern lines but I like a nice blend of straight simple lines with curvilinear forms.  Too much of a good thing is always too much of a good thing so contrast is key in keeping a space interesting.
