August 20th! Where did the time go? The weather here in Toronto feels like summer’s just starting. There’s still time to squeeze in a last-minute adventure before cool autumn air blows its way into your city. Let’s talk about a colour that exudes that wanderlust feeling: Desert Rose! Our August Refuge colour of the month is a bold neutral, a tan with almost mauve undertones. Like it's namesake stone, it's a beautiful grounded color that will help create a safe and subtle space without sacrificing style. Keep scrolling to see what you can do with this cozy colour!
Adorn Your Walls
Paint those walls! Desert Rose is muted enough to act as a neutral and let your decor take centre stage. But if you’d prefer to stick with white furniture, Desert Rose will certainly bring the warmth. This space by @amberlovesdesign is a great example of using brown walls as a neutral. The dark coffee table and lamp totally POP against the walls!
Go Bold With an Accent Wall
How good does this corner by @agatbry look?! The light fixture and herringbone flooring are show-stopping on their own - but adding an ACCENT WALL? AMAZING. The white border around the warm brown is an excellent touch. I don’t know about you, but this sure inspired me!
Take it to the Kitchen
One of my favourite ways to see paint used is on cupboards! It’s an easy way to give your space a total refresh. This industrial space by @paliychukolia is all kinds of dreamy with its neutral colour palette, stone flooring and ultra-modern lighting. Goals, goals, goals!
Same as before, but this time in your bathroom! Change your hardware and paint your vanity for a totally different vibe. Photo from Pinterest.
Head to your local thrift store or hit up a yard sale and find your new (old) favourite piece of furniture and give it a facelift! Give it a good scrub before you prime & paint, and once it’s complete style it to the GODS. We wanna see!! Photo from Pinterest.
