Local shops have everything you need to embrace your inner mermaid. Think pearlescent hues, iridescent tiles and subtle metallics. The combination has a touch of glamour but as a whole still seems inspired by nature. In different lights, these materials change and morph, creating organic spaces that are very adaptable. For 2018, a big trend is a mix of textures, so try bringing in shaggy rugs, leathers and even velvets for a look that seems to have layers of elegance. Pairing subtle rose and blue hues with this palette is a no-brainer, but there’s definitely room to expand your color scheme into soft aquas, teals and even lavender. This palette is perfect in a zen bathroom, a serene bedroom or even a chic office. This look is the perfect combo of nature and subtle glamour.
