Color Story – beyond the green shades of Christmas

Saturday, December 23rd, 2017

Green color is often associated with Christmas and Christmas trees, especially during the holidays, but it is in fact a dynamic hue full of energy and aesthetic harmony, suggestive of sustainability, renewal and life outdoors. A great statement color to be used on an armchair like Bonaldo’s Arno or an ottoman like the Hollywood in the form of an accent piece, or as a visual focal point as seen with the Marlon sectional sofa by Gamma Arredamenti, green denotes its intuitive versatility and injects any living space with transformative aura. Welcoming, relaxing and somewhat dramatic, green color has a modern interior design essence that goes beyond Christmas and is rather a popular choice to combine with earth colors, grey palette or in a black & white setting.

Color Story – Winter White Modern Living Spaces

Friday, December 15th, 2017

White is a beautiful choice for interior decor, one that is easy to integrate with just about anything in terms of style and color. White is great when it dominates the space or when used as an accent to other powerful colors. But when decorating with white, many find it best associated with ultra-modern furniture or a color palette that is particular to beach-properties. In fact, there is an actual modern design deviation denominated as Miami-Modern, a décor style that’s full of white color and minimal airiness. But, that’s not the white color that will be discussed today, rather winter white – because white is also associated with snow.

Winter-white means a fashion statement, it means layers and contrasting textures of the same tone that add dimension, it means any hue that is not pure, like Benjamin Moore’s Ice Cap, Behr’s Snowfall, and Sherwin Williams Frosty White. Winter white means elegant, regal and magical. And while impractical, winter white is widely associated with coziness and warmth. Check out winter white modern living spaces featuring the Cadillac and Marlon sofas from the Dandy collection by Gamma Arredamenti.
