Color Trends: Cobalt and Camel

When it comes to keeping our homes looking fresh, there’s no easier way to transform a room than with a lick of paint and some eye-catching accessories. With the right color pairings in a room, these simple changes can really lift up a room’s design! And one combination we’ve been loving lately is stately cobalt mixed with camel – a modern twist on classic style.

Here are our favorite ways to bring this color trend to life in your home.

Oak & Glassware

Natural oak is known not just for its quality and durability, but also for its warm and friendly tones. The grain pattern and golden undertones create a calming camel base to ground a room. Offset by pop of regal cobalt, this classic wood is transformed, creating a modern look.

Bringing this trend into your home couldn’t be simpler. It’s all about working with what you already have. Think about topping your gorgeous Bevel coffee table with a Delft pottery bowl as a stylish way to store remotes and other small objects, or add some beautiful cobalt glass pieces to your Canterbury display cabinet. Even topping a simple and sleek Rivermead console table with a vase of fresh blue hyacinths can be just the trendy refresh your room needs.

Playing with cobalt and camel can be a game of subtleties too. In fact, when interpreted a bit loosely, the combination is a beautiful twist on a neutral room. Here, cobalt is brought to life in an ombre paint-effect wall, which grounds the room and doesn’t overwhelm with a large block of color. Then, when paired with our gray St. Ives range of dining room pieces, the effect is softened. Camel touches shine through in the solid oak tops and terra cotta details throughout the room. This bright take on the trend is perfect in compact or darker rooms to add a touch of light.


Metallics & soft furnishings

If you’re looking to bring these colors into your home in a more unexpected or bohemian way, then playing with different finishes is a great way to bring the look to life. The reflective copper glass lamp is a perfect contrast to the blue soft furnishings on the bed – as well as the accent vase and plant pot! Playing with these very different textures yields a playful vibe, while the natural oak of the Bevel bedroom pieces, including the bed and nightstand ground the room.
