08 May Color Crush: Sangria
As the weather begins to heat up, we long for the sultry days of summer yet to come. Sangria celebrates the subtle warmth of the season and reveals itself as a refreshing blend of sensual red and exotic berries mixed with a full-bodied merlot. This deeply-inviting, lush hue encapsulates the innate sensation of tropical wanderlust; adhering to the rise in popularity of such places as Cuba, Brazil, and Mexico. Versatility is the highlight of this sumptuous shade, lending itself as the perfect pop of color to fashion, interiors, and accessories. Filled to the brim and bursting with flavor, Sangria, gives us a small taste, just enough to leave us wanting more of what the upcoming months have to offer.
Tip #1: Accent(uate) your Space
Two of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to update your space is with a fresh coat of paint or by adding in bold textiles. No need to commit to a whole room; try highlighting one area with a splash of Sangria which makes for an eye-catching accent wall or throw in colored pillows for a look that can be easily interchangeable throughout the seasons. Pairing with crisp white, light greys, raw wood and natural textures lends for a modern yet casual approach to using this otherwise dominating hue.
Tip # 2: Flirty Florals for the Win
With spring in full swing, spruce up your wardrobe with fun and flirty florals. Perfect for a day time garden party or a night out on the town, the vivid combination of Sangria mixed with an all-over mid-scale floral is the ultimate in sophisticated femme. Not ready to commit to so many patterns? Try incorporating botanical accents into your wardrobe in small doses, such as a wedge or heel, inspired by blooming foliage.
Tip # 3: Synchronize your Palette
If you love this color as much as we do, don’t be afraid to go all out by using Sangria in all aspects of your interiors! Adorn the walls with this luscious shade and complement it using a playful pattern in the adjacent room. Further enrich your space with textures by incorporating plush rugs and luxe velvet upholstery. This regal color pairs well with warm lavender and metallic gold for that extra element of glamour. Feeling even more adventurous? Emphasize Sangria with vibrant orange or vivid violet for a look that is sure to leave a lasting impression
