Decorating Inspiration: A New Spin On Pretty
Offering a delicate balance of trendy and timeless, an unexpected palette, luscious curves and eye-catching pattern set the stage for a new spin on pretty. Get inspired with two fresh decorating looks below!
The Palette: Refined Pink + Navy + Burgundy
Millennial pink has matured: this grown-up version has a fleshier tone that’s miles away from the Snapchat set. A plush velvet sofa in a pyjama-style block stripe and slate flooring cut the sweetness of the pink wall color. The added tones of navy and burgundy convey warmth and coziness.

The Shape Shift: Curved Furnishings + Bold Prints
An oak leaf–print wallpaper is a dreamy backdrop for the strong sculptural shapes of the furnishings. From tulip tables to stools that can stand in as chess pieces, sensuous forms are a foil for graphic artwork. Curved furnishings have been proven to amp up feelings of hope and increase relaxation.
