16 Mar Color Crush: Cumulus
Our heads are in the clouds this March with Cumulus, a peaceful transition from Winter to Spring. Pattern and texture layered in this neutral allows you to transform your home into a relaxing retreat. An honest color, this blue-toned grey has us on cloud nine! We see cool, gentle Cumulus emerging in interior decor trends as a way to unwind from stress and escape from overstimulation in today’s busy world. With its blue undertones, this contemporary hue is best utilized to balance warm metals and rich woods.
A crisp backdrop for color, Cumulus delivers a sumptuous look when mixed with other natural neutrals, letting Cumulus shine. Emphasize a brighter living space with natural elements, like wood and greenery, along with white focal pieces. Sophisticated Cumulus pairs perfectly with both cool and warm hues to create a refined look that outlasts the trends.
The New Neutral
“We have all seen the trend of gray dominate the interior design world over the last 10 years. Clients always ask me when this trend will end but my answer is always that it won’t. It is the new neutral and it is here to stay. So, if you want some color, what is the trending hues that work best with this blue-toned gray? My answer is always purples. Something about it is so feminine yet so masculine. Its the color of gems, amethyst, and natural stones. It is warm yet so soft at the same time.”
– Ryan Saghian, interior designer
