As artists and colorists INSTUDIO Design Directors Samuel Fleming Lewis and Stephen Kladder notice the colors of spring in an upshot of poppies at railroad tracks, an explosion of yellow-green or blue-green succulents planted at a local traffic circle, a profusion of pinks from a gardens fresh blooms, lavenders, grays, taupes and purples of mountains against a cloudy sky, a tree in front of a multitude of different blue paints used to cover urban graffiti, and the browns of dying pink blossoms. In the right proportions these color palette inspirations can become beautiful rooms.

Lewis and Kladder composed spring inspired palettes using colors, furnishings, textiles, lighting and art from 1st Dibs, Target, Pottery Barn, Coup, Benjamin Moore Paints, West Elm, Advanced Interior Designs, Land of Nod,, Rejuvenation and Design Within Reach. Developing a personal color palette can be as easy as stepping out of the house on a lovely spring day. If you like what you see you can bring complementary hues to your home.
