“Personally, I don’t have a drop of color in my apartment. And my house in Wassaic, NY, doesn’t really either. It’s a sea of neutrals. In our products, we don’t do multicolors. We might do a spectrum of blues and some grays, but we’d never add in purples or oranges. And the color we do use is a dirtier, muddier version. Even with ceramics, it’s always more tonal. To begin, though, I always look to nature for color. Just take a flower or butterfly wings. You could never dream up these colors, but there they are, flying around in the wild.” – Mellen
