Sunshine and Fire Themed Designs

The Sunshine Effect

A drop of golden sun. Just thinking about the light and bright way sunshine elevates our mood is, well, elevating! Sunshine is also the best disinfectant, making it doubly beneficial. It’s high time to prescribe ourselves a dose of yellow themed designs.

Elegant takes on retro themes were spotted all around town during Déco Off in Paris—and this was the best among them. The Plan B groovy but elevated fabric is named for a term Warhol used for the actors, models, and artists around him. Andy himself might have loved the Magnetite wallpaper.

Not all golds are created equally. Benjamin Moore’s Stuart Gold, says Benjamin Moore’s Andrea Magno, is part of a trend to bring back self-expression and indulgence using bold, saturated hues. “Both large and small spaces benefit from the desire to bring personality and fun into the home,” she says.

Inspired by the effects one sees inside the namesake kaleidoscope, Caleido handmade tiles alternate between glossy and matte surfaces in a series of yellows, off-whites, and browns to create more dimension. Go here for more on what we loved at Bologna, Italy’s tile show, Cersaie.

Heat Seeking

Home fires don’t burn only in the hearth: they kindle in the heart, too. Warm colors, finishes, and materials help get that glow going. Check out these fire themed designs.

Looking to soil and plants for inspiration, Benjamin Moore’s Andrea Magno embraces deep, saturated tones like Terra Mauve. “It takes its cues from rich clay hues with warmth and an understated sense of luxury,” she explains. Read our article for more on Benjamin Moore’s 2024 color trends.
