Kicking things off for 2015, a little colour inspiration for the home. When we look at what we're loving for interiors this winter, and for early 2015 (maybe it's because of our darker weather here in the Pacific Northwest), one look we love is the quiet and light that these colours bring; a washed palette of beige, grey and cream with accessories in soft pastels, like light terracotta and surfaces and textiles with different textures. Natural (lighter) woods like Scandinavian-inspired pieces or lighter wood flooring (washed out, but not white), concrete (grey)—as flooring, counter tops, and other surfaces. Sandy tones in textiles, furniture fabrics and rugs; textures like extra large knitted accessories (blankets, rugs) in muted colours (like cream). And terracotta (like Pantone's Colour of the Year—Marsala) in things like dishes, mugs, bakeware, and planters complimented with beautiful plants like philadendrons. Pretty light pastels found in pillows, rugs and other accessories.
