With our crazy busy days, who doesn't want to come home and instantly feel a release of tension as we settle into a calming space? Capture that feeling with calming and soothing colors. The trick is to pick subtle, undemanding colors that whisper instead of shout.
Exotic locales produce distinctive color schemes, including this palette that features coffee-bean brown. Putty gray and creamy white supply cooler counterpoints to the warm brown, while yellow, citron, and leafy green evoke images of sunbeams, tropical blooms, and verdant growth.
