It’s no surprise the farmhouse trend is hanging on. People love the easy, casual feel the look gives. To achieve the look, stick with neutral tones like whites, greys, beiges, and blues.

Being the “color of the year”, sage green is holding on strong. The idea of taking a nature bath by submerging yourself in greens can easily be transcended to inside the home too. This tranquil color is a great way to given the home a sense of calm and serenity. You can pair it with other colors and finished like taupe, purple, gold, raspberry and grey-blues. Sage green can be a light gray-green or dark gray-green color. A person who is considered sage is often times wise experienced and has good judgment.
Greige (grey and beige)
It’s no “Benifer 2.0” but a new word born this year is “Greige”. It’s a combo of grey and beige. The addition of gray to beige creates a richer color, one that can work in both cool and warm color schemes. Greige is gray that has been warmed with beige undertones so the result is elegance of gray, without the cold blue undertones. We like this trend because it’s in-line with your typical grey theme but gives the look a more welcoming feel.

Feel the warmth of this collection with cozy brown, burnt orange, charcoal black, rustic red, grenadier, sandy brown, copper, burgundy, and deep purple.
