House Beautiful recently featured 101 Colors from Nature. Their selections based on hues inspired by the elements practically guarantee that resulting rooms based on these colors will be beautiful. It sounds simplistic, but over and over, we've found it to be true - combining colors that are also combined in nature just seems to work...
We've pulled 8 of our favorites from each section to make the paint swatch collages shown here. The paints are from various manufacturers ranging from Yolo to Ralph Lauren to Home Depot. Visit the House Beautiful site to see the full slideshows of all 101 colors - Fire, Air, Earth and Water.
