When looking at elegant Indian Silks, I feel almost mesmerized and enchanted by the shimmering jewel tones. As we know, silk has the reputation of luxury and the bright colors woven throughout the piece tell its story. It is almost impossible to glance at a piece of silk just once, for you may miss the mysterious “between” tones that create the most exciting, unexpected result.
Continuing the conversation on color usage or lack thereof in American residential interiors, it seems very true that the ‘color’ palette most commonly preferred is a quiet neutral one. White itself gets dissected endlessly and carefully for its subtle shading choices (warm, neutral or cool). One single light neutral tone for all public space walls is often the choice to support all other design decisions.
