Down to Earth
We were excited to help with a recent feature in Oregon Home Magazine, working with Miller Paint to showcase the power of earthy neutrals. According to Apartment Therapy, “A neutral is a color without much intensity or saturation—a color that’s lacking in color, if you will, which generally goes with everything. Think tans, beiges, ivories, creams, whites, blacks, and grays.” Oregon Home included more soothing earth tones, while keeping the palette gentle.
Our Home Store staff was part this project (thanks, team!), bringing their Pendleton design expertise to play in choosing blankets that show the softer side of Pendleton patterns.
According to the feature:
This season’s color palettes draw inspiration from the ground up. Earthy is in. “Whites are shifting from bright and stark to earthy tones touched with raw umber,” says Puji Sherer, director of color marketing for Portland-based Miller Paint. “Grays are giving way to gentle browns and beiges. Even though Pendleton designs are typically very angular and dynamic, the subdued color palette in this one makes it easy to live with in any interior environment.” Oregon Home collaborated with Miller Paint and Pendleton Home on this design for a cozy, on-trend gathering space.
We agree. The power of this palette is soothing and understated, but still strong. Our geometric patterns allow for all kinds of subtle colorplay.
Some of our favorite blankets tie in with this palette.
The article featured three beautiful Pendleton blankets; Sandhills, White Sands, and Wyeth Trail.
We love these blankets for their natural tones and offer more in this palette; 5th Avenue striped throw, Juniper Mesa, Prairie Rush Hour, and Kitts Peak, which has a little kick of dark wine red.
