Room Goals Inspired By Behr’s 2020 Color Of The Year

ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN | BY | August 23, 2019
Behr Paint's 2020 Color of the Year, Back To Nature S340-4, pictured here, nods to nature while acting subtle enough to serve as a neutral.

Reminiscent of rolling hills and verdant meadows, Behr Paint’s 2020 Color of the Year encourages a deeper connection to our environment. The recently announced hue, Back To Nature S340-4, is a slightly yellow-based green meant to impart a sense of peace within the home. Incorporate what’s being billed as “nature’s favorite color” into your home by drawing inspiration from these similarly hued spaces and accent pieces.

SAGE ADVICE

For the living room of an Oakland residence, designer April Powers paired a sofa by O. Henry House and Livia chairs by Marcali, all from Hewn, with a custom walnut coffee table. A Paul Ferrante chandelier and a wallcovering by Gregorius Pineo lend color to the space. Residential designer Mark Becker added beams to the ceiling and a new fireplace surround by Napa Valley Cast Stone. (Tour the home.)

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER

Comfort rules in the media room with a Montauk sofa upholstered in a green fabric and a long coffee table by RH. Antique Victorian porch posts found on 1stdibs give the space a pair of rustic notes. Pale green grass cloth from Kneedler-Fauchere covers the walls and the rug is by Stark. (Tour the home.)

DRAPED IN STYLE

Gracie wallpaper swathes this dining room, which designer Marie Flanigan further softened with a rug from Madison Lily and draperies fabricated by G&S Custom Draperies using silk from Arabel Fabrics in North Miami, Florida. Perennials fabric from David Sutherland covers the front of custom chairs by Joseph Company. The chandelier, sconces and lamps are all from Circa Lighting, and the homeowners purchased the buffet from Thompson’s Antique Center of Texas. (Tour the home.)

GREEN SCENE

NEW NEUTRAL

Rather than renovate, “we painted the kitchen because the owner was afraid a new kitchen would look too modern,” designer Daniela Saliba explains, adding the space’s cabinets were originally a cherry hue. The window valance was made with an embroidered fabric from Wall Boutique. (Tour the home.)

FIT FOR A QUEEN

Designer Daniel Krog hung a Lee Reynolds painting above a bed from Modernica in one of this home’s guest bedrooms. The Bertoia chair in the corner is from Knoll. A vintage ceramic lamp resting on the bedside table, which is also from Modernica, lends texture to the space. (Tour the home.)

GREEN WITH ENVY

A sleeper sofa, designed by interior designer Barry Dixon for Tomlinson and touting Zoffany fabric, turns this study into another guest room when needed. Dixon also designed the mesh shelving by Avrett, while the framed artwork is from Natural Curiosities. The Jean de Merry lounge chair wears Edelman leather, and the oval table with a honed honey onyx top is from the Helene Aumont Collection. The Bellbridge rug is from The Floor Gallery in Rockville, Maryland. (Tour the home.)

TWIST OF LIME

Walls painted in a classic melon color–Monticello Peach by Benjamin Moore from Sergio’s Painting–make a striking impression in the living room. The vibrant hue is balanced by a light wool rug with a Moroccan-inspired raised pattern from Jack Walsh Carpets & Rugs, a neutral sofa, and a pair of wood armchairs covered in a green-and-white Quadrille fabric. (Tour the home.)

OFFICE SPACE
