2. Think With Blush Tones


Blush is the new neutral. It pairs with grays and naturals for a calming palette. It can be combined with rich bold colors like forest green,
navy, or citrine, and it allows the bold color to be focal point.

A vibrant and modern alternative to traditional neutrals, blush pink complements a wide range of colors.

No longer considered “just for the girls”, today’s take on blush is muted, edgy and minimalist.

Use blush to provide a foundation color, as an accent color, to offset bold colors and to complement metallic features in brass and copper.
