Color of the Month - December 2018 - Shimmering Sapphire

Moving the inky blue trend toward a slightly warmer, darker spectrum, blues become closer to black yet retain their rich green undertones to create a mysterious and royal atmosphere.

Why it's trending?
Interior design is taking a darker turn giving in to the mysterious attraction of deeper color palettes. For the last few years, the interest for moody ambiances continued to strengthen and is now reaching new markets. The work of the Dutch Masters is referenced through the dramatic use of natural light against dark walls, giving photographs a still-life, painterly aesthetic. Much of the Instagram-able home is pushing a more dramatic look into everyday décors.

How to style?
Their warmth lends well to pairings with cozy fabrics such as velvet or with textural rustic wood and smooth tan leather. You can keep the dramatic mood by keeping the lighting low, and a matte sheen would bring out the complexity of this teal. The colors represented here may not match the actual paint colors.
