Warm It Up
If you use one word to describe a French country color palette, it’s warm. Though the palettes foundation is usually neutral, color is used to accent and add character. Any color is fair game—yellow, red, green, blue—but the underlying thread is that primarily warm shades are used.
This helps to create a welcoming, inviting aesthetic. Dark colors, such as blacks and grays, do have a place, but more minimally. These tones are used to break up and add contrast to bold color.
