Forest Green + Terra Cotta

Discover the gorgeousness of forest green and terra cotta, a color palette that exudes history while also staying of the moment. For this 1910 kitchen remodel, Erin and Ben were able to save and restore the ultra-high cabinets and original terra-cotta tile flooring. Moody green paint transformed the upper cabinets, whereas the lower cabinets received staining. Warm and earthy hues create an inviting atmosphere ideal for the heart of this home.

Navy Blue + Green

Another sure-fire way to find a color palette that works together is to pick a wall covering you love. Designed for the Napiers’ youngest daughter, Mae, this enchanting bedroom is brought to life by the whimsical wallpaper. Erin chose navy and green out of an array of soft hues on the wallpaper, and wove it into Mae's bedding.

Light Blue + White

If ever in color-scheme doubt, turn to blue and white: Erin's coastal color palette simply doesn't fail. For this seaside home reno, she found a clever nook for an awkward spot. Beachy blue on the cabinets and banquette seating creates an airy, inviting ambiance, while touches of crisp white keep the space fresh. Natural wood tones deliver a balancing note of warmth.
