Whether featured in saturated jewel-box rooms or as pops of color in a more neutral space, they always do the trick in creating environments with drama and flair.

Saturated, rich avocado green is actually a blend of almost every color in the rainbow, so it goes with everything. I’m loving it enlivened with strategic pops of brights, white, and ebony to add warmth and drama to the cocooning factor.” —Elaine Griffin of
