The founder of Dwell, Lara Hedberg Deam, is putting together a series of four color palettes that will be rolled out over the course of the year. We blogged the first one, a classic red/grey combo and now, we take a look at the second one, just released:A dark brown is used as an anchor and the three complimentary colors that have varied undertones, so while neutral, it remains interesting visually. Either all used in one room or spread throughout a home, Deam explains that this palette (based on Ralph Lauren Paint) should be easy to implement in most spaces, from more traditional homes to modern, architectural spaces.
She choose Stable Brown as the very dark, very powerful anchor color, then added the counterpoint of three grays: warm Donnybrook, blue-ish Cymbric Silver and lavender Countess.
It is a palette that is all about combining subtle colors elegantly in a way that is quiet but not expected.
