Color Mix: Sultry and Exotic

Even though winter has just began (at least for those of us on the East coast) we are quick to look for signs of warmer, brighter days.  Hence the color mix:  sultry and exotic.  On the runways the colors are worn as solids, in the  home they are layered with stripes, adorned with gold hardware and splashed into bold patterns.  A new season does not mandate an entire new interior, instead,  it nudges us to keep current with colorful touches in our pillows, our bedding, and even our botanicals.  I like to honor winter (even though it's clearly not my favorite)  by keeping our home in cozy textures and neutral hues until the end of March.   In April, the pillows, the throws and the bedding change up and the house tones brighten up.  Take a look at the color mix and some ideas on how this spring's hot colors can update  your interiors:
