What color combinations do you love to use in interiors?

“I love a neutral background in all our designs. My go-to white for cabinets, trim and walls has been Sherwin-Williams Snowbound SW 7004. It is subdued and warm with the creamy yellow tint. Sherwin-Williams Pure White SW 7005 is also a [favorite] of mine for a true white.

What colors are trending in 2022?

“Everything has been so white for so long, [so] I think we can expect to see a lot of color creeping its way back in, in the form of earthy tones, especially varying tones of subdued greens and blues (yay!) and variations of terra-cotta and blush tones.”

I am loving this color combination which we are currently pulling together in various ways for a new construction project.”

What color combinations do you love to use in interiors?

“I tend to gravitate toward bright, saturated colors that make a splash. Bright and bold pinks, magentas, blues, red or cyan against a contrasting black and white background with some metallics added to the mix. They are exciting, energizing and really activate the space!”

What colors do you feel are overused in interiors right now?

“I think many of us are ready to take a break from all of the mid-tone grays and taupes … gray is still fine because of its practicality, but [it will likely] be less dominant, and we’ll see more in graphite and charcoal.”


I used some of these colors… for [the newest] Forage Kitchen in Middleton. They were used in combination with natural maple and various tiles in light taupe, graphite gray, ivory and white.

What color combinations do you love to use in interiors?

“I absolutely love blue and white! It is a classic and timeless color combination that will never go out of style. What’s best is that blue is impossible to mess up when combined with white. I can’t get enough of Benjamin Moore’s White Dove OC 17. It’s a versatile shade and it’s my go-to color for walls, trim, cabinetry and other millwork. White Dove maintains enough warmth so that it is not too cool, yet it does not go too creamy or yellow.”

What colors are trending in 2022?

“I’ve been noticing that a lot of brown has been popping up in textile lines, and I love when it is paired with blue and white. Adding a deep chocolate brown into the mix creates instant warmth in a space.”
