Indigo

Meet our Fall/Winter guest editor, Genny Cummings, Interior Designer and owner of Indigo Interiors. Well-known for her East meets West aesthetic and harmonious use of antiques and contemporary designs, Genny shares her expert advice on using a neutral palette to create a serene living scene.

"Quiet, neutral color palettes in the home have taken flight recently, with a multitude of gray hues leading the trend.  But the key to avoid a one-dimensional, uninspiring space is to create many notes of nuanced neutrals. Putty, pewter, granite and white add depth and relevance, while texture and reflective materials bring in some drama.

And if your heart cries out for a little more - add a dash of saffron for spice!"
