Blush, Crimson, Purple, Blue: The Colors of Emotion

Color Therapy

This Spring, Bernhardt – in step with fashion designers worldwide – introduces furniture that allows people to play with color in new ways.

Emphasis is on the colors of emotion – blush, crimson, purple, blue – all with warm undertones and deep shading. These warm-blooded hues are often juxtaposed with an accent of cool color or with a strong crisply drawn frame, creating a yin and yang balance.

"We can reflect and change our moods by adding a bit of color at home," says Ron Fiore, Bernhardt creative director. "These are sophisticated colorations and applications that balance relaxation, conversation, and play."
