Shelley Penner's Favourite Palette

Cool greys with a punch of orangey red.

For her own bathroom, Vancouver designer Shelley Penner painted walls in Benjamin Moore's White Water (2120-60) and added drama with a vanity cabinet in Silhouette (AF-655). The living room adjacent to this space has a feature wall in Salsa Dancing (AF-280), which she carried into the bathroom with bold towels. She loves that the palette combines cool neutrals with warm accents, and admits the red is unexpected. "I gravitate toward blues and green-greys, perhaps because they reflect the west coast's sea to sky views, but I love this pop of colour," she says.
