Creating a palette of charcoal and gold doesn’t have to be over the top or crazy expensive:

color story: peach + emerald

Bold emerald green matched with soft peach is both flirty and fierce!   I’m loving these 2 colors together.

(It’s past my bedtime, and I’m sleepy.  So instead of attempting to come up with witty captions, I’ll show you pretty pictures and your imagination can take it from there 🙂 )

summer pops of color

I’m loving designer Thom Filicia‘s latest fabric collection from Kravet!  So many fun and inspiring colors – like turquoise, lime, red-orange – that embrace the exciting yet carefree mood of summer.

This first one is my fave.  You might not be able to tell from the picture, but the green lines are actually embroidered.

Red-orange is where it’s at right now.

Kravet 32799_311

Kravet 32797_6

This one’s soft to the touch.  It comes in a gray and a blue as well.

Kravet 32795_3

This would make a nice herringbone pillow, throw or coverlet.

color story: chartreuse + plum

Chartreuse and Plum: A dynamic duo.  Fresh and spunky, yet deep and powerful.  They are not your usual couple, but hey I’ve heard opposites attract.  Even as bold as each color is, these two can share the spotlight together if done correctly.

Both colors a  little muted here and they compliment each other beautifully.

Love it with the lilac or raspberry too!plum and green paint colors

.better homes and gardens purple and green room

The key is to blend the greens and purples with other neutrals, browns, blacks, or whites. Mixing in rich brown tones and/or black (as shown above) gives off a luxurious feel.  Or use white in the color scheme (shown below) to achieve a more serene & sophisticated environment.

Using gold with these 2 colors looks great too!
