1. Who you calling ugly? Recently, the Australian government went on a mission to find the world’s ugliest color to use on cigarette packaging in hopes of discouraging smoking. Several contenders came forth, but one dark brown, olive green color became the victor. While many designers would take this as a clear sign to stay away from such hues in the home, designer-writer Ott took it as a challenge to see if she could find a stylish way to find beauty in such beasts. Her resulting article is proof that such fairy tales do exist. See more on decorating with the ‘world’s ugliest color’Read more stories about decorating with color
6. Muted MetallicsIf you feel that metallics are too flashy for a bedroom, this space by the team at Falcone Hybner Design may change your mind. The room sports a variety of warm hues, so the muted metallic upholstered pillows and silver accents throughout add only the slightest touch of bling to this cozy room.
Here’s a dark brown wall color that appears, from my monitor anyway, to have a slight green undertone, but I would in no way call this ugly. Quite the opposite. It’s a deep, rich hue that brings a warm and cozy vibe to this luxurious master bedroom. Sure, I could imagine a space in which this color would not be appealing, but that’s true of all colors. And the reason it works well here is that there’s a pleasing mix of materials, many of them with a luxurious feel, as well as dashes of compatible colors, such as red and white, that pull it all together. Note: The colors you see on your monitor are usually not accurate depictions. If you see a color you like here, it’s best to gather up paint swatches and compare them to what you see on your monitor to make the best match.
