quiet time

This palette of soft, muted colors offers sanctuary amid our hectic and often complex lives. Blending near whites, blues, and greens with darker neutrals creates spaces that soothe the soul and recharge the mind.

Mystic Fog - 0019 Star Mist - 0630 Overlook - 1319 Resting Place - 0462 Billowing Smoke - 0583

MYSTIC FOG 0019: Calm, relaxed, and peaceful, this soft white pairs perfectly with all colors.

STAR MIST 0630: A harmonious balance between blue and gray, this light and airy hue invites relaxation and new beginnings.

OVERLOOK 1319: Larger than life, an ultra-deep gray-violet shade perfect for grounding light pastels or accenting brighter colors. A striking and modern accent that pairs well with most colors, giving it universal appeal.

RESTING PLACE 0462: A soft mint described as ‘nostalgia meets clean and simple’. A mid-century hue that is calming and balanced, providing a restful retreat.

BILLOWING SMOKE 0583: A dramatic deep green with a gritty yet nuanced personality, enabling it to pair with ethereal colors, creating unique and confident combinations.


As we navigate our busy lives, we are confronted with the challenges of how to manage distractions, assess information, and stay centered amid the noise of our modern world. To help us determine and prioritize what is most important, or which pathways to follow, we search both consciously and subconsciously for those elements and cues that add value, passion, and meaning to it all.

A classic beauty, this blackened red pairs wonderfully with other jewel-tones, as well as greens, blues, and earth-tones.

Atmosphere - 0689
This blue-green beauty reflects off cool waters and bright skies to deliver an upbeat vibe. Pair with deep red, yellow, or orange for dramatic style.


Unique and personal spaces are the inspiration for this palette of eclectic hues that tie styles and passions together. An authentic home is a combination of old and new. Curating family keepsakes, travel treasures, and exciting new pieces can make defining your own style a challenge. Color comes to the rescue with its power to tie disparate elements together into one cohesive design. New and vintage coexist in today’s uncompromising bespoke attitude, with the mixing and matching of styles coalescing to create a look that is uniquely yours.
