You could use it anywhere, with black or white accents to set it off. Its such a serne, sophisticated color, And what could be better…serenity, calm and confidence!”

Jeffry Alan Marks epitomizes fresh, spirited, timeless design. A trendsetter for over two decades, he is known internationally for designing and sourcing exclusive and unique elements from around the globe. “It’s a French Blue playing off the gray tones, but a little brighter and happier. It would look great with canary yellow or orange – it calms them down. I’m attracted to them because they are strong and bold, and that’s where I see interiors going.”

“I like this deep slate blue. I think people are going for rich, robust colours now, and this would be wonderfully unexpected in an entry, library or powder room. I’d pair it with brass or gold accents and animal patterns like leopard or zebra. Do it in high gloss and it will feel both glamorous and contemporary. Grass cloth or tea paper on the ceiling would add to the drama.” Ron Woodson Ron attended the UCLA school of Interior Design and was recently named one of the Top 20 Black Designers in America. Ron draws inspiration from his travels, with more than 30 countries to date.

Versions of Navy feel right to me now, and this had a touch of purple, which makes it more feminine…Navy works as a neutral, and it can settle brighter colors like Kelly green, hot pink or raspberry. For people who have trouble using black, it does the same thing but in a softer way.” Christine Markatos her studio is known for creating sophisticated spaces that are enlivened with a fresh mixture of pattern, color and texture while meeting the needs and lifestyles of those who live there.
