What Is That Color? Grey Matters

Posted by


When I design a room, I always start with fabrics. And that was no different in this master bedroom I did a while back for the Hamptons Showhouse, where I was lucky enough to kick things off with a gorgeous orange toile from Duralee! Once I selected the fabric, I knew I wanted to coordinate it with a more masculine print to balance the room. So I went with a Phillip Jeffries wallcovering in a bold geometric. But what paint color could coordinate with all of that boldness?


I went right to neutral territory with a beautiful grey from Farrow & Ball called Mole’s Breath – isn’t that a great name?! It was perfect for the major wood surfaces in the room, like the mantel and the bookshelves here on one side of the fireplace.


On the other side of the fireplace, I built in a coffee/wine bar for the home owners, perfect for starting or ending their day! And the grey is such a great complement to the fabrics, patterns, and art in the room! I love grey as a neutral, but what do you think? Is it a go-to color for you? Let me know in the comments section below!

Colorfully yours,

Fall Color Palettes

Our senses are so important to us – a color can remind us of a favorite dress when we were little, or a scent can take us right to a cherished holiday. I love creating those moods in the homes I design, where color is key to how a room “feels” to my clients. And since fall is at the top of many people’s lists of favorite seasons, it’s no wonder that fall palettes are popular. Let’s look at a few color choices that can bring those crisp autumn days into your home, especially since fall starts tomorrow:


When most people talk about why they love the fall season, those bright autumn leaves are right at the top of the list. Who doesn’t love deep reds, warm oranges, and crisp whites? To keep those stronger colors from overwhelming your room, consider using them in fabric details. And then mix in lots of white to balance the mood.


I love a good chocolate brown – it’s such a warm color, especially when it’s mixed with a deep gold like in this room. Popping in that touch of turquoise keeps things fresh and gives you a more unexpected color combination.


Here’s another chocolately room, but this time it goes a bit more preppy with navy and kelly green. This makes me think of collegiate colors, which is perfect for the back-to-school fall season. You can get this color on your walls with Sherwin-Williams Porpoise.


Speaking of collegiate, you know I love football, so any colors that remind me of my Razorbacks are going to be fan favorites with me! This red isn’t quite Razorback red, but it’s a great rusty red for fall palettes. I love it combined with a wheat and a creamy white.


This palette reminds me of a walk through the woods on a late-fall day. I love the muted gold, peacock, and moss – it makes this a cozy and elegant space.

So what do you think of my fall palette roundup? What colors do you love from the autumn season? Let me know in the comments section below!

Happy fall, y’all!







What Is That Color? Sea and Sky

I loved designing this pool house for my clients – it’s a fun space to hang out when they’re waiting for a passing shower, or to have a quick bite before heading back out for fun in the sun! For the color palette, I wanted to give a nod to the water just outside the window, along with the sunshine and flowers. But at the same time, I didn’t want to go too “beachy.”

The pool area outside already had these bright pops of orange, so I knew that I wanted to include that color. And I went to the opposite side of the color wheel for that perfect complementary partner – and this blue was just what I needed! It’s Sherwin-Williams Waterscape, which is also a perfect name, don’t you think?

Not only is it the just-right shade of blue for this poolside retreat, but it also provides a great backdrop for the pattern play I put into the room, too, like this fretwork on the bottom of the wall. It helped create a cool space for rest and relaxation without having to use all that SPF!

So what do you think of this lovely blue? It’s continuing a theme for me this month of cool and calming colors! Let me know what colors you love for the summer by leaving me a comment below!

Colorfully yours,
