JUNE 2021 - OPAL
Opal is known as the "eye stone." It gets this name from its color-changing brilliance, which seems to dance for the eyes. What makes Opal so unique is that the stone itself is so much more than just its creamy base color-it has a naturally iridescent finish that highlights other colors such as pink, blue, green, and purple.
Since it's a neutral tone, Opal is an incredibly versatile color to work with. It pairs perfectly with richer colors and forms a perfect backdrop to make even the most subtle colors pop. it's a gorgeous overall wall color that works well in just about any room. From a big, open space with lots of windows to smaller rooms without a ton of natural light, Opal brings just the right balance.
If you're after a warm and cozy feeling, pair it with softer colors like subtle pink, powdery blue, minty green, and soft gray. it's the perfect wall color for a hygge-inspired room. For a clean, minimalist vibe, it pairs well with natural wood, light gray, and creamy whites.
it's also a great choice for your home's exterior. It works well as an all over house color, since it has just a hint of color-it's more visually interesting than regular old white. It also works well as an accent color for trim paired with a bolder house color. It really does give you a ton of options!
