Willow: Soothing, Crisp, Rejuvenating
Escape into the essence of nature with our Color Crush of the month, Willow, as this mossy green brings the color and freshness of plant life into your space. Featuring an unexpected brightness, this color can transform your environment for an intense, natural feel, helping you feel refreshed and revitalized. When finding a sense of calm in Willow, we are able to disconnect from daily pressures and truly indulge into a space that blurs the boundaries between indoor and outdoor. Driven by the need to escape daily stressors, Willow helps us to become one with nature, detoxing ourselves from our surroundings.
PAIR WITH AN ORGANIC COLOR PALETTE
Use Willow with every shade of green! From mossy greens to the bright tropical greens, this palette is inspired by all types of greenery. Pops of warm, earthy hues such as brown and beige will reinforce the natural aesthetic while soft pastels soothe the space. What we love about these palettes is that it works for both a contemporary and traditional aesthetic depending on how highly contrasted the colors are.
BRING YOUR SPACE TO LIFE
Greenery infused spaces allow us to have a close connection with nature, creating a soothing and also stimulating atmosphere. Pair Willow with botanical prints and patterns and even use living plants to enhance the nature-inspired space. Mindfully hang cascading vines and plants, add a succulent wall, or use terrariums to fully immerse yourself in the tranquility and crispness of nature. To make your space feel more elevated while remaining an organic feel, pair these elements with luxurious finishes such as gold, marble and rich woods.
