With the holidays long gone, and your vacation days stored up for May, you might be looking for ways to indulge that don’t involve breaking the resolutions you’ve worked so hard for last month. Now is the time to make yourself something luxurious: Enter rich jewel tones and opulent textures.
Not quite orange, and not quite brown, rust is a shade of red that happens in nature when iron is exposed to oxygen and moisture for long periods of time. In design, rust adds a dimension of warmth and richness that’s rivaled by very few shades of color. While brighter hues of mustard and seafoam can balance out rust’s deep warmth, we’re loving colors that accentuate rust’s richness, and red wine, pumpkin, olive and sage create the perfect recipe for sophistication.
