4-28-15 - dusty lilac


 - from Instagram
Flowers are bursting forth in the garden and we are feeling the subtle, petal tones like our #twenty2coloroftheweek #dustylilac. A #custom color way of our Bianca pattern and our new #sisal #grasscloth in Magnolia blush alongside our spring reading – a vintage gardening guide about the reproductive organs of plants – Sex in the Garden. A still lovely dried hydrangea from our garden last year is also a perfect match. Reason enough to get into the garden!

#springyellow #twenty2coloroftheweek Daffodils are finally blooming here and their fresh yellow stem green combo has us in the mood for color. Highlighted by our new #sisal #grasscloth in Grisaille and @kyrahartnett’s grandmother’s iconic plastic dishware from #Heller designed in 1964 by #MassimoVignelli and still used by our kids today. Our oldest daughter is also in the mix with a recent floral watercolor and her favorite garden shears.

4-7-15 - terrain


 - from Instagram
#terrain #twenty2coloroftheweek The grass is struggling to turn green up here in Northwest Connecticut, so we are embracing the revelation of a panoply of brown and green – and even the drops of rain. Our Maxwell wallpaper in terrain and our jute grasscloth wallpaper in cacao fit right into the changing landscape. Favorite @benjaminmoore greens are paired with snippets of the iconic brown gift boxes from @louisvuitton which we keep on hand for color matching. A trio of walnut stacking mini boulders from @aplusrdesign rest on a ceramic tile made in Massachusetts in the late 1800′s that we use as a coaster. #embracechange #dscolor

4-3-15 - chlorophyll

Our chlorophyll colorway is our take on the classic acid green found in mid-century ceramics – like this dessert bowl from our collection of vintage Russel Wright ceramics. A panoply of lively greens selected from the Benjamin Moore paint library, chlorophyll first came to life in our Acco 20 and Acco Kits wallpapers. We find that the tonality of colors creates a harmonious effect reminiscent of geometric wall tiles. Also featured is our Acco 22 pattern on cotton-linen and our jute grasscloth.

3-31-15 – aquatic blue


 - from Instagram
Snow on the last day of March has us fantasizing about our trip to the Bahamas last year. #twenty2coloroftheweek is deep aquatic blue with our #widewale #jute #grasscloth in Maritime and our #sisal in Lazulite. Keepsakes from our favorite ocean vacations, an early homage to #22 by our daughter Ella Rose and favorite @heathceramics tile samples for our (still unfinished) kitchen backsplash round out our cool blue vibe.

3-16-15 - a pinterest roundup: pink and green

Pink and green is a classic combination that always makes us think of Spring. It’s fresh and a little sassy, just what we want out of a color scheme – especially in March. Our vivid spin on this color way, Cherry Lime Ricky, in our Promenade and Peekaboo wallpapers offers a serious punch of color. But, we are also loving the more muted tones of pink and green found on our favorite Pinterest images right now.

3-16-15 - icy grey blue

We love creating icy color palettes inspired by the tonal grey blues of our vintage Russel Wright ceramic collection – which began with a set of plates we purchased as our wedding china. Peekaboo, our trellis pattern, comes in a chilling blue, white and lush silver color way called Ice. Our new sisal grasscloth in the color Chill captures that same frigid blue grey look. The textile is our Montague pattern printed on linen and the carpet is our Marea – made to order through Studio Four NYC.
