We recently revamped our design studio and website as well as our logo, using a fabulous shade of green mixed with a charcoal gray.
We love the color green, which comes in an infinite number of shades - from lime and grassy green to deep moss tones. Designing either a room filled with green or just adding accents of green such as pillows or accessories, soft green is a soothing color that is the most restful color for the human eye, adding calm to any environment. A kelly green, however, can give a room a fresh punch!

Plants add color interest to an otherwise neutral palette.

There are many shades of orange: mandarin, pumpkin, terracotta, tangerine and not to forget the famous Hermès orange. This fabulous, radiant color evokes a feeling of energy, fun and warmth. Orange stimulates the appetite and the emotions and is a great color for social gatherings as it increases energy and social activity.
Inspired by the Hermès orange we have selected inspiring images portraying the use orange in interior design. Adding a splash of orange is sure to enhance other colors in your decor, as well as add warmth and vibrance!
