mid-century mod color scheme

September 30, 2011

In an ode to Mid Century Modern design… here is a color scheme pulled from one of our past ASID Showcase house projects…

All paints are from the Benjamin Moore Classics collection:

HC- Willmington Tan

HC- 76 Davenport Tan

HC-49 Mayflower Red

Accent colors:

1666 In the Midnight Hour

076 Corlsbud Canyon

723 Spring Rain

Design tip: By adding splashes of color here and there, it gives your eye spots to rest on the neutrals. In this picture your eye can rest on the soft Willmington Tan background in the reading nook, or on the rich reddish-brown wood of the bookcase, while the pillows and back painted light blue glass give the little nook some pops of color and interest.

warm color schemes

July 8, 2010

Warm color schemes are comforting, spontaneous and welcoming.  Think of an Arizona sunset… these are precisely the colors that make up the warm color scheme. 

Warm colors include: red, red-orange, orange, yellow-orange, yellow, gold, and brown. 

Here are some of our hauthaus remodel and furnishings projects with warm color schemes.
