MUTED PAS­TELS & SO­PHIS­TI­CATED NEU­TRALS

Real Living (Philippines) - - Get Inspired Décor Ideas -

COLOR PAL­ETTE: Reach out for muted and dra­matic tones such as the Tech­nol­ogy color com­bi­na­tions from the Boy­sen Color Trend 2017. This pal­ette in­cludes a sil­very gray that can serve as a back­drop for more col­or­ful ac­cents; lemon yel­low that can read­ily perk up a neu­tral space; dusky pink that goes well with white; and other tints that are less sac­cha­rine than their bright coun­ter­parts.

If you must have your dose of light color to go with Green­ery (Pan­tone’s Color of the Year), choose from the Min­i­mal col­lec­tion, also from Boy­sen, which res­onates with the Pan­tone Fash­ion Color Re­port for Spring 2017. The pal­ette in­cor­po­rates teal, beige, sand, dark brown, and black—all rich neu­trals that evoke el­e­gance.

For the STYLE IT pas­tels, use one or two pre­dom­i­nant muted tints and let the oth­ers play se­cond fid­dle as ac­cents. Add depth by throw­ing in a con­trast­ing color like white, gray, or black. Mean­while, so­phis­ti­cated neu­trals can work well in just about any space. Pick teal as the ac­cent, and let the oth­ers fig­ure in other big fur­nish­ings.
