Feeling a Little Blue?…or Brown?..or Both?

One of the most successful color pairings in the recent past is the color combination of blue and brown/tan.  Visually, the palette pairing provides a soothing aesthetic for both masculine and feminine spaces alike.  Barclay Butera has successfully paired these colors himself in his new bedding line for Eastern Accents in his new “Hyland Park” collection that features paisley, stripes and solid colors.

The collection’s duvet features a strikingly bold paisley pattern in blue and tan which is offset by toss pillows in stripes of blue, brown and tan.  These are complemented by euro pillows in brown velvet and standard shams in tan velvet both trimmed with coordinating cord.  To set off the look, a smart looking velvet animal print pillow to sit front and center of the completed bed.  The whole ensemble works well in a traditional setting though can be equally at home in an urban loft setting.

The new bedding ensembles also feature additional collections including “Sag Harbor” and “Palm Canyon”.  Sag Harbor is a fresh outlook on a beach collection with blue beach striped pillows and an accent pillow featuring a blue coral pattern…Palm Canyon plays to my love of animal patterned whimsy with tailored zebra print pillows!  Each collection would be a beautiful additional to any bedroom!

Blue and brown…I’m thinking I need to call a great client to show her the new Butera collection for her teenage sons’ bedroom.  It would be perfect for them…but…maybe without the animal print accent pillow!
