How a sense of balance moves us forward.
When the going gets tough, the tough get balanced. When we face chaos and unknown outcomes, we seek calm, order, and balance to anchor ourselves and our surroundings. Our homes should be a place of shelter, one that grounds us in warm tones from nature. Using woven carpets and textiles, as well as grid forms along with wood looks, we can create a sense of harmony with nature and our environment.
These warm tones, ranging from taupe to richer tones of brown, offer a sense of stability, endurance, and equilibrium. And when adding some color pop, like these warm pink and blush tones, we can face the day with optimism and a better sense of balance to move us forward.
We’ve compiled a palette of products that reflect this design principle to help you curate your space.
