A Pinch of Spice

In the shadow of today's cool celadon greens, neutral "greiges" and stark white walls hides the warm, welcoming shades of your spice rack. They are unassuming and under appreciated and yet provide those in your household the biggest hug and most hospitality. Call them coral, paprika, brick or terra cotta, they work in a variety of situations and seasons. In the summer, they feel fresh and vibrant. In the winter, they instantly heat up your tabletop or windows. And as far as your own clothing goes, earrings with a coral burst give you an instant glow or a clutch in a burnt orange livens up the dullest day. But spice can be strong so a little goes a long way. Keep your spices in check by toning it down with pale blushes, sandy creams or, yes, even pool blues...bordering on celadon.
