Charcoal…a deep, smoky gray, with sophisticated undertones. Papaya…a bright, juicy orange, with significant pink tones. Combine these two colors to experience fireworks, beautiful contrasts, and sweet notes that make any space sing with delight!
How do you use charcoal and papaya, practically speaking? Start with the strongest color, papaya, for accent pieces in your room: artwork, lamps, area rugs, and accessories. Use charcoal on upholstery to ground your room. Charcoal is a great color in chenille, twill, or corduroy; to upholster a tailored sofa, wing-back chair, or overstuffed club chair and ottoman. To give your room drama and contrast, use the darkest shade of charcoal on the largest piece of upholstery and use lighter shades on smaller ones. Sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular room you created!
Look for crisp lime and white patterns in cotton fabrics, bright green leathers, or fuzzy chenille and combine them with gray tweeds, corduroys, or silks. Try pewter tables, wall art, or sculpture to add the steel color to your room. Add the magic of lime in paintings, area rugs, and greenery.
