Color Inspiration: Wicker & Moss

TIDBITS&TWINE: Color Inspiration Wicker and Moss

 

I’ve always loved the color combination of white, wicker & moss because it creates a very soothing and natural palette that works year-round.  White walls, trim and furniture act as a clean and bright backdrop to the darker, warmer wood and wicker tones.  A pop of green then adds a sense of freshness.  You can use just these colors by themselves, or even add an additional accent color, such as a pop of yellow, a hint or blue, or even an orange!

 

Greens come in a variety of shades and can have yellow or blue undertones that drastically change the appearance of the color.  Here, I’ve chosen a yellow/green called Huntington Green because it is a classic and bright color that works well with both cool and warm tones.

A crisp, white, classic sofa like Pottery Barn’s Comfort Roll Slipcovered one creates a great backdrop and other textures and colors to play off of.

On the floor, I love the look of layered rungs, like the Newport Area Rug mixed with a natural Cowhide Rug.

To balance out white walls, consider using darker furniture pieces like the Paulette Server in Tuscan Brown and a natural seagrass bench.

And of course, there are all sorts of fun accessories to add that encompass this color palette, like houseplants, terrariums, artwork, knick-knacks, and glass bottles!

Recently, I’ve realized that my home’s color palette has made a shift toward toward these neutral Spring colors and my rooms are starting to reflect my love of white, wicker & moss!

    Very pretty. It reminds me of a greenhouse and this time of year that is very welcome.

    I have strayed away from green in the last few years, except for boxwood wreaths, but your use of green on your mantle has me rethinking the color.

    This is a favorite color scheme of mine and have it in the kitchen and breakfast room as well as the master bath. We are subtropics so lots of dark woods, and seagrass and framed ferns. :)
