Yellow Kitchen Wall with Wooden Dining Table and Decorations

Entranced by the mid-century modern homes of the 1960s or the rustic Southwestern homes in Arizona and Santa Fe? It’s not surprising why we find ourselves drawn to this specific style. These sunkissed, desert interiors are rife with nostalgia, referencing moments in history while harmoniously in tune with their surrounding landscape. When it comes to bringing the spirit of this unique style into your home, it’s all in the colour palette. Soothing, subdued hues that tend to be quite versatile include chocolate browns, moss greens, taupes, and murky mustards. These warm, earth-toned colours infuse interiors with energy and warmth, two things that are always good to have in a room, no matter the season.

Colours in the Feel the Colour Nostalgic Collection draw inspiration from the outdoors and never fail to make an interior feel homier. Soft neutrals pick up subtle differences in warm shades of sand and beige, creating a baseline for a gentle, peaceful atmosphere interior. Just look to X394 Expance, H456 Straw and X457 Apatite in this palette to add warmth to your home. Colours rooted in nature are not to be missed when recreating this style; think muddier shades of N405 Terracotta, L396 Beeswax and the green hues of M386 Amazon for a hint of elegance that works well with neutral tones and rich browns. Colour combinations with a touch of nostalgia will always remain on-trend, so divert your attention to Southwestern or Mediterranean décor and embrace the mellow hues of an earth colour palette.
