Sweet Tangerine evokes summer sunshine and notes of freshly peeled citrus fruits that mix orange and lemon.

Designed by Studiomama, this white Scandinavian kitchen with light wood floors and cabinets gets a sparkling, bold pop of tangerine by way of dining chairs, a zig zag floor runner, and a kettle on the stove.

The living room of Matt and Kathy Allison in Cape Town, South Africa has a definite mid-century vibe without being over the top. The couple struck balance with a grey-green wall color that’s evocative of dried sage leaves.

French Lavender is an old-school scent that never goes out of style – a timeless classic. You’ll feel like you’re walking through lavender fields in Southern France.

When a 1906 Beaux Arts, Washington D.C. apartment needed a renovation, Sorg Architects stepped in to modernize it while keeping the historical integrity intact. With white walls and wood floors, they accented the space with lush furnishings and artwork by Suman Sorg in hues of poppy red.
