Light Sandstone by Martha Stewart

A touch of pink makes this colour feminine, but not sweet.

Bolder than peach but softer than orange, Light Sandstone touches on the Honeysuckle trend — without being overly girlie. Wonderfully flattering for a powder room or bedroom, design editor Joel Bray thinks this colour looks trendy when fully embraced. "Try a monochromatic scheme by painting your walls and trim, and finish the look with colour-coordinated drapes, bedding or upholstery," he suggests.
