Combining blue and brown is a go-to color palette. "The way to update this classic pairing is to bring in bold leaf green, ivory, and citrus orange for your throw pillows. Every room needs a bit of citrus pop."
"There's something in the color blue that triggers a relaxation response. It makes me feel as if I'm floating in a boat, looking up at the sky. Everything about it speaks of a gentle, tranquil, Zen state of mind. This is not an aloof blue. It's a blue that gathers you in." —Leatrice Eiseman. Stillwater 16-4610 by Pantone
