Natural State 


Be inspired by nature—choose accent colors that will bring the colors of outside into your home.  Find simplicity by pairing yellows and browns for an organic, natural mood creating a low-key, easy going style. Add the new neutral of 2018, a pinkish-orange hue to generate a fresh and pretty space. Together these hues create a spirit that’s basic and unpretentious. Achieve low key styling by introducing upcycled yard sale finds, vintage pieces, or unfinished textures to bring the look to life.
