Pretty Cool! Pretty Hot! --Changing the temperature of color schemes

Posted

Our Bolero buffet cabinet was originally designed as a versatile credenza, it's profile light and contemporary with a playful flair. From the very get-go, the curves and angles offered a creative platform to experiment with organic patterns and paint finishes rife with jewel-tone colors. The Tigress is one of our favorite color schemes fashioned after the tiger of course. Intense golds and copper orange co-mingle with high contrast black and silvery white in exciting patterns and paint applications. The result was bold, exotic and modern. Understandably it has become a popular choice among our customers. 

Turn up the Temperature

Although we specialize in bespoke color palettes, no one has ever requested a tweak to the Tigress until recently. A customer sent us a photo of her living room, where details focused on autumn saturated colors and warm wood tones. She knew the Tigress Bolero would be a welcome addition to her decor but couldn't help wondering if it may be a better companion if we swapped out the slivery tones for something in a gold hue. Amazing how one color change moves the mood of the color scheme from cool to warm, each with its own charismatic beauty and pizzazz!
