A walk along the beach, especially when a storm is rolling in, can be a feast for the senses. The color experts at Pantone can help you bring that feeling home as they have gathered the colors of the water, wind and air into their Surface Treatments palette, one of nine home color collections for 2013.
Take a look at these hues: Maui Blue, Vapor Blue, Tornado Gray, Fallen Rock, Birch, Agave Green and Medal Bronze.
Pantone makes the often-intimidating job of color selection simple and fun; you simply select the collection that feels right to you. If Surface Treatments captures your personal style, take a look at this understated living room we fashioned from its palette:
Start with our Platinum Sofa from the Style Collection. The easy-to-live-with piece has clean lines that will fit any lifestyle. The silver grey fabric is accented with soft yellows and greys, for a fresh take on neutral décor.
Next, add our Pearl Accent Chair. The updated paisley pattern of soft hues adds visual interest to the room. And its rolled lines, tight seat and angled back provide a peaceful respite from a long day.
The colors of the Surface Treatments palette come from nature and our Seville Rectangular Cocktail Table and Round End Table with Spanish travertine marble are a perfect fit. Set in a steel frame with a golden bronze finish and a beveled tempered glass shelf, the pieces give the room a textural element.
Add another touch of bronze with our Contemporary Table Lamp. Constructed of marble and topped off with an ivory linen shade, its curvy base adds a sophisticated feel.
While the Surface Treatments color palette brings the feel of the ocean inside your room, our Sailboat Wall Art brings the scenery there, too. The three-dimensional piece features a beautiful silver boat gliding atop an inviting waterscape.
Finally, ground the room with our High Sierra Rug. Ultra soft with varying shades of brown, its deep teak color mirrors the look of cliff-side rocks. The shag rug also brings in another layer of texture to this room designed for the senses.
