Golden hues are the epitome of elegance. Golden garland and warm lights feed into this color. Use this as the backdrop to your fireplace and hearth or in the entire living room. A home office would also take to this color well with mahogany built-ins.

Here is your neutral color used in transition spaces. Large open rooms and hallways, rooms that are connected to other rooms need a palette cleanser. As we move into 2016 you'll see the return of the off-white as neutral.
