Beautiful use of color! I like how the accent colors ‘pop’ against the dark gray accent wall…

This dark shade of gray is definitely an effective neutral to showcase the accent colors in your design. This home interior is another great example of this…

I love the rustic nature of this dining room design. The pendants above the dining table are just awesome! I especially like the contrast between the natural wood tones and the ‘Kendall Charcoal’ walls…

Always get samples! Here’s why: The ‘Color of the Day’ posts are intended to provide design inspiration. I select projects and products for each ‘Color of the Day’ post based on the color my eye sees in the photographs. It can be extremely difficult to render color with 100% accuracy when taking photographs, especially of interior spaces. The same color can also appear  entirely different in different lighting conditions. For these reasons, the actual color of the projects or products  may not be an actual match to the ‘Color of the Day’. Always review actual samples from the product manufacturer before making final purchases.
