This lear, we launched products in our shop based on the colors we wanted to see more of—not just the expected array of jadeites and whites but also some daring new tones. Here are our five favorite colors of the year, from black to pale, unfinished beechwood, according to how we want to see the world.

Brass

We're used to seeing copper and golds perking up interiors, but this year it was all about that brass. I love how brass designs take on a burnished color the more you handle them—and how they can be polished right up for instant glimmer.

Blush

Before we even knew that one of Pantone's colors of the year was going to be rose quartz, we loved all things blush. We put pink sheets on our beds and started sneaking pink mixing bowls and ceramics onto our tables. It's the perfect, just-warm-enough neutral for any interior.

Rich, Royal Blue

Inspired by the commercialization of indigo-dyeing techniques like shibori, rich and saturated blue tones are creating a pop rather than a backdrop in interiors everywhere.

Light, Raw Wood

We're always going to be suckers for dark, molasses-toned walnut woods, but this year we celebrated the beauty of light, unfinished wood like pine, maple, and beechwood.
