Bright Hues – A Little Goes a Long Way


In the dead of winter, it can be hard to find any color inspiration amid the gray. Luckily, I work in a place where color never ends. I come by loving color naturally as my hair and nail color change as frequently as the weather. As soon as I see the new products for upcoming seasons, it’s the colors that excite my senses (and hair color)!


Here are some great colors that will warm you up during these last cold days of winter. Raspberry will put some flush into your cheeks. This not quite red is still hot from furniture to rugs. Even just a hint of this Raspberry will perk up any space or face.


Azure, the hue halfway between blue and cyan, will have you dreaming of blue skies and possibly a tropical paradise. This cool to the touch hue, works well with other colors and is easy to introduce to your child’s playroom or bedroom without feeling blue.



Talk about hot; with neon Yellow on your mind you could start a fire with this much color. This color from the lime yellow to a mellow version is ready to stoke your senses. Use as much or little as needed to intensify any corner of your environment.


Imagine the warmth and inspiration created when these colors work together! These perfectly balanced patterns and palettes from our artisans can start creations or enliven any room.

You can find all the products shown above at The Land of Nod.

Growing up Julia loved color so much she gave her crayons different genders and specific positions in the box based on who they got along with. Fast forward to adulthood, and Julia had the opportunity to work for a paint company where she honed her eye for color, and sometimes even got to name colors things like Dandelion Scream and Wild Child. Today Julia works at Nod as a Graphic Designer, and channels her love of color into her constantly changing hair & nail colors, as well as colorful designs for Nod's website.
