New Favorite Color Combos

As you all know, I can't resist bold, colorful, and patterned rooms, such as these:

But lately, I've found myself drawn to more serene and muted color palettes.  Maybe it's because summer screams bright, fun and colorful and fall/winter seems more cozy and gray?

Whatever it is, I have a few new favorite color combos.  First up is gray and brown.  These rooms feel so comfortable and warm to me - the perfect place to curl up with a good book as the weather turns cold.

And I couldn't resist the little pop of color here:

Yesterday, my friend Holly at West Pear Avenue posted a design board that featured a pretty green color that got me thinking about green.  I'm not usually a huge fan of green.  But pair green with gray, and I'm in love.

OK, one last gray-based combo.  Cassie at Primitive and Proper posted these gray and orange bookcases (they aren't styled yet because she just finished painting). 
I love these and they reminded me of some of other recent favorite images of mine.

What do you think?  Are there any color palettes that you are loving right now?

I love that smoky blue/coral combination....which is funny because I don't have any of it in my house....I live vicariously through pinterest!

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

Girl, I am just a fan of you and your it all! I am loving that kelly green and gray combo, just looks so rich and classic, yet perfect! And anywhere where there is a pop of bright color is good in my book!

You know I love green so those two Veranda rooms are my favorites here. I don't think I've ever seen the dining room with the touches of green out of Veranda - that's really pretty. And thanks for the shout out - makes me happy that I was able to inspire someone with my board. I also really like the neutral living room with the pops of yellow - also a big fan of yellow. I've gotta get my favorite things together to party!!
