The Arrangement’s Go-to Colors
As a tried-and-true color guru, Katherine Snedeker (owner and head designer at The Arrangement) has a tested palette of sea glass blues, beige’s, and earthy browns. We wanted to pick her brain on what color palettes work for her, time and time again.
A little background on Katherine: What started 28 years ago with a small company has grown into an entire realm of rustic, western furniture, redefining western style. Katherine Snedeker has always stood for providing quality furnishings, creating whole style movements, and inviting people to take part in her dream for it all.
Q: Go-to color palette and why it works?
A: “I tend to use brown on upholstery, cabinetry or walls, then I add in the blue through accessories or textiles. Brown and seaglass blue together make for a casual yet elegant vibe.”
Q: How do you find color combinations that work for your designs?
A: “Certain colors just really speak to me and others do not. I have always selected things that I am naturally drawn to and they work well together. Over time as I design more and more spaces, it is fun to see the patterns develop and push me to try different things.”
Q: Any colors you’ve been wanting to try together?
A: “I had been dying to do a really neutral-only combination and recently we did just that. The result was stunning.”
Q: Where you do look for color inspiration?
A: “Color is everywhere. In our homes, all around us, everywhere we go. I draw inspiration from the colors of the Earth – browns, neutrals, blue & green hues from the sky and grass….I also travel a lot, and when I go somewhere new, I tend to see the trip as a whole through the colors I experience.”
Q: Favorite color of the moment?
A: “Copper. Our clients request a lot of it! Any kind of brown that has as sheen, shine, or sparkle – basically all shades of copper.”
Q: How do you recommend moving through rooms with different color schemes?
A: “You can rearrange the color palettes, but the vibe has to stay the same. Don’t try to do one look in one room and then one look in another – mix together and carry that look with different colors from room to room.”
