Animate Color of the Month - October 2023

Indulge in the luxury of silk this October

The most decadent time of the year is fast approaching, which means the colors we surround ourselves with are gradually becoming richer and deeper. October marks the sweet spot between summer and winter, with the warmth of the sun beautifully contrasting against the newly crisp air. 

We’re leaving behind the light textures and bright colors of the summer, but aren’t ready to fully give into the coolness of winter. It’s a month that signifies both balance and abundance, perfect for soft metallics with a luxurious feel. 

This month’s color is Raw Silk, color 1-242

Raw Silk, a highly lustrous, fluid-like color with a delicate sheen, captures the soft warmth of October in a cool and sophisticated package. It resembles liquid silk shining in the autumn sun; a gorgeous warm metallic gray that exudes modern refinement.

Opulence Meets Adaptability

Raw Silk pairs beautifully with almost anything, from soft neutrals to stark monochromatic palettes. Those seeking a more daring approach may choose to combine Raw Silk with deep jewel tones such as sapphire blues, amethyst purples, or emerald greens. It can be used to bring an extravagant touch to both intimate and public spaces, whether you’re redecorating your home for the season or working on a commercial project. 

The warm undertones of Raw Silk harmonize effortlessly with natural materials like wood and stone, creating a rich ambiance that will look incredible throughout the holiday season. For an extra touch of lavishness, you can use it to complement decor pieces with metallic finishes such as brass and gold.
