Pantone may be calling it a pink year, but to me the hot colors are neutrals, grays and creams and greiges of all varieties. Worried about being too subtle? See how a lot of designers are keeping things from getting dreary with a punch of gold.
Of course, gold often creates a sense of traditional luxury and glamor. But it is also effectively used in modern, neutral interiors as a way of providing a different texture without veering too far from the color palette.
Which neutral and gold combo is your favorite? Do you have a place in your home for gilt-y pleasure?
