Designer Color Palettes - Teal with Brown and Citron

BHG Color Palette
One of my favorite websites is Better Homes and Gardens link to site. Recently, the site featured a series of "designer color palettes" that show interesting and dynamic combinations of current colors. I find inspiration in these palettes and, of course, opportunities for including some of my great refurbished furniture.

I like this grouping of colors and find that I have a lot of pieces in the blue/teal/seafoam/acqua color group but not much in the browns or citron green. I have introduced a variation of this color set (taupe, seafoam and charcoal black) into my own recently renovated terrace level check out blog about project here.

Here are some of my current inventory pieces that would work well in this setting. Yes, this is advertising but I hope it helps sell this overall color palette which I do love!

I just added the two settees (in a bright teal - not well photographed here) and the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (ASCP) set of French Style Chairs refinished in a distressed Duck Egg Blue.
I do not have a real citron color piece but find this apple green Martha Washington chair might work in this setting.  In addition to these hostess/upright chairs and the Sherrill Chair and Ottoman, I also have a set of Sherrill Club Chairs in the great seafoam and cream houndstooth.

I do not currently have anything really citron green or brown and must admit I've been a little nervous about doing pieces in those colors. Now that I am focusing on this great color combination, it should bolster my courage to try some pieces in these colors.

I will be featuring more of these interesting color palettes in future blogs - they are truly inspirational. What do YOU think of this color combination?

  1. I really enjoy blue and brown....live with it everyday. Citron? Maybe just a touch. I lean more towards blue, teal, turquoise, and fresh green...plants! ;)
