The quiet appeal of the BE YOU palette for the bedroom is for someone who wants to come home to a place that enfolds and embraces.

The Quiet Appeal of the BE YOU Palette for the Bedroom
Disclaimer: These colors may not exactly match actual paint

Everyone needs a place like this, a space where you can relax and breathe, where you can shrug off the cares and the stresses of the day, where you can drop all kinds of masks and just be yourself. It’s a place of rest and rejuvenation. A place of peace and quiet where you can regain your balance.

How to Use BE YOU in the Bedroom

‘Amidst our fast-paced lives, our bedrooms are one of our most sacred downtime spaces, yet so often they are overlooked and not conducive to a good night’s kip,’ says Wayfair’s resident style advisor, Nadia McCowan Hill. ‘In 2018, we predict all will want to take back this sacred space to help better rest and recharge.’ (8 bedroom trends for 2018 you need to know about, HouseBeautiful)

For such a bedroom, you would need paint colors that would exude this kind of feeling. The BE YOU palette of Color Trend 2018 fits the bill.

After a shoot, the blog team of two made a beeline for the Tory Burch shop in Greenbelt 5. Someone had told us that it was very colorful. It definitely was and what added to our excitement was that it’s the Be Seen palette of Color Trend 2018. How cool!

Bold. Audacious. Brilliant.

That was the copy on the window display, plus the additional, “An explosion of color and prints, inspired by David Hicks.”

So true. That. Because the Be Seen palette is all about stepping on stage and shining like a star. Offer no apologies for who you are – your intention, your passion, that spark that makes you unique, because this is your one inimitable life so live it with all you’ve got!

I liked the bags too, by the way, especially the striped one. That would really brighten up any outfit! Although I would prefer to have a different print on my clothes and not be too matchy-matchy with the bag. Just a thought though, because I’ll stick to my locally made bags. Buy Filipino has been my mantra for more than a decade now.

Eclectic Chic from Tory Burch

I love the print on print background. The colorful, eclectic and geometric designs remind me of mandalas, Greek patterns, Moroccan tiles, and Spanish ceramic patterns.

David Hicks was one of the most important interior designers of the late twentieth century, who became known for his carpets and textiles.

“My greatest contribution as an interior designer has been to show people how to use bold color mixtures, how to use patterned carpets, how to light rooms, and how to mix old with new.
– David Hicks, Living—with Taste

The Be You palette of Color Trend 2018 is a mix of cool colors, pastels and light, earthy neutrals. These are colors that can reflect the comfort and safety that a haven offers. It’s a wonderful place to be where you can relax, be comfortable in your own skin and just be yourself. No need for masks or a stiff upper lip. Facial muscles are not required to express anything but what you feel.

See the Be You Palette in SM Home’s Bedroom and Kitchen Vignettes

Be You is a color palette that provides the healing hues for rest and refuge, a space where you can withdraw for a while from the frenetic pace of your day, and just take deep breaths to recover, to heal, and to top up your energy to be able to handle life’s vicissitudes.

See how SM Home’s AVP for Marketing Tom Castaneda and professional stylist Love Ocampo designed a bedroom and kitchen respectively in the Be You colors.

The Subdued Colors for the Kitchen

Love chose the subdued colors of the Be You palette, namely, Strange Brew, Private Stock, Skin is In and Bluegrass Suite, for the kitchen. She chose white as the base color for the cabinetry and shelving. The light wooden table top and chairs echo the light color scheme chosen from the palette. The bronze sheen of the coffeemaker and toaster on the countertop are definitely eye catchers.

Be Yourself in Your Bedroom

Using geometric patterns as influenced by Scandinavian interior design makes for a strong statement. That is what Tom did to the bedroom wall by having the zigzag lines painted in the blue grey of New Breed against a wall painted in the light mint green of Bluegrass Suite. This is also actually a good design trick if you don’t have a headboard, and it is easy and inexpensive to do.

The light grey of the furniture mimics the paint color Private Stock. It’s a very cool color which is restful for the eyes. Tom paired this with white bedsheets. He was very excited to find in the SM bed linen collection, a bedspread that had lines in the mint color embroidered at one end. For visual weight, the throw pillows he piled on the bed and the shaggy rug have different textures and come in different shades of mint and grey.

Tom certainly designed a bedroom where you can relax and sleep away the stresses of the day.

More Room Vignettes Coming Your Way

The SM Home and Boysen collaboration continues in the month of April. Watch this space to see more design inspirations from Tom and other designers, using the scrumptious colors of Boysen.

To me, the palette Be Here of Color Trend 2018 is an allegory of summer vacations in my grandparents’ home in the probinsiya. The colors feel very organic with its dusky mauves, burnt yellow, deep green, and the neutrals black and white. When I look at it, I feel a sweet nostalgia for summers spent in comfortable and safe surroundings with my siblings and so many cousins.

Modern Rustic

The Filipino interior style has so much to offer so turn to your roots to find your definition of modern rustic. The use of wood, capiz shells, rattan, solihiya, abaca weaves, baskets, or other handwoven textiles using the designs of today can give that feeling of tradition while still being contemporary. Add modern chairs, lamps, and other modern conveniences like hobs and ovens.

Tip: Use mostly natural materials for your furnishings. You’re helping Filipino artisans who still make traditional handicrafts to earn a living. 

Organic Longings

During those summers, the town was our playground and we explored it from dawn to dusk. The beach was at the back of the house and the town plaza in front, full of century-old acacia trees. Across the plaza was the school and the old church beside it. We could just hop and skip our way to the park which had the statue of Jose Rizal in the middle and an old fountain that was always bone-dry. At the back of that was the municipio with a row of huge sunflowers in front of the building, nodding their heads under the blue sky.

Nature! I took it for granted. But now I feel so blessed that I experienced those summers. We had the time of our lives outdoors as we played so many games, some of which we made up ourselves.

I think it was then that I really noticed colors. Nature was the best teacher in color combinations. When I think now about what colors go together, I notice that my mind does not reach out for the color wheel. It goes back to the things I observed while growing up.

In the mood board above, you will see that I used artichokes and figs, which I discovered and learned to admire when I lived abroad.  I love the spiral pattern of the artichoke leaves. So Fibonacci! As for the fresh figs, I love the delicate light grey strokes and a hint of yellow on a mottled dusky mauve and pale green background.

Magical Mauves

There is so much violet in nature. They come from the sea or grow on land.

Mood Board 2: Organic Longings Evoked by Palette Be Here

A daily visit to the beach was customary in those days, and there I found violet everywhere, in the common sigay (cowrie shell) or cockleshell. There were so many colors but I preferred those with pale violet. The dorsal (or top) side had this delicate mauve hue as if it were painted in watercolor and framed with white. We gathered them for our sungkaan.

Skin diving was not only a test on who could hold her or his breath the longest, but I also liked to look for my favorite sand dollars with their pretty flower-like pattern at the center. They too came in other colors but I wanted those violet ones. Don’t forget the sea urchin skeletons! They too have the violet ones. Getting the sand dollar and sea urchin skeletons from the seabed was tricky because they were very brittle and if you were not careful, you’d break them to pieces.

Mood Board 2: Organic Longings Evoked by Palette Be Here

If the sea has a violet bounty, so does the land. When I say violet, I’m sure halo-halo would be one of your guesses, especially with summer in the offing. Heck, even Obama likes it! However, I don’t. I could never understand the melange of flavors. Too much there going on for me. I like ube ice cream though. Even if it’s not made into ice cream but boiled, purple yams (ube) are really good. Other delicious tubers or root crops that have violet varieties are sweet potato, cassava and taro.

I also like lomboy or duhat, never mind if sometimes it’s tart. Summer is definitely here if you find lomboy and sarguelas in the market. You might contest me on this but I swear that sarguelas, just like avocado, have shades of violet on their skins. And who wouldn’t love chilled milky and sweet caimito on a warm day? Even if they’re green on the outside, they can have bits of violet inside. But the purple ones are really stunning, outside and inside. Just yum!

Have you ever seen cacao pods on the tree? They actually look spectacular hanging directly on the trunk. When they’re young, they could have this purple hue. Freshly cut mature pods have delicately purple-colored pulp. But the treasure of cacao is in the beans, and we know what that makes 😀, and although the beans are no longer violet after roasting, what they are made into is definitely delish!

Another shade of violet which I find so beautiful is eggplant. It’s called by another name in many countries in Europe. Aubergine (pronounced ō′bĕr-zhēn′, ō′bər-jēn). Ang ganda kaya memorize ko kaagad! But here in the Philippines, you can’t ask for aubergine. Better to say talong!

Bananas are violet to begin with before they turn yellow when they’re ripe. If you’ve seen a puso ng saging (banana blossom or heart), you’d know what I mean. The color of the bud is crimson with splotches of purple. It’s a beautiful rich color. I was fascinated by it hanging there against a backdrop of green, and even more fascinated by the taste as it was cooked in gata!

Garlic too has violet streaks on them, just like red onions. I’m sure that you have noticed that before you peel the cloves. Next time that you get to hold a bulb of garlic, enjoy how pretty it looks first before breaking off the cloves and smashing them with your knife.

Yellow Yearnings

Mood Board 2: Organic Longings Evoked by Palette Be Here

The sun drenches the earth in yellow during summer.

I loved it how the yellows became more intense with the light. My grandparents had a garden wrapped around their home and they filled it with all kinds of trees and plants. Near the front gate was this tree with its cascade of yellow flowers. It was aptly called Golden Shower and I enjoyed seeing how profusely it bloomed. It looked like it was having a lot of fun doing that.

Have you ever noticed the dark yellow at the center of a white kalachuchi? Even the pink ones have yellow hearts too. The thick, waxy petals give off this heady fragrance. You can smell it especially at night. I used to pick up the flowers that dropped on the ground and just breathed in its scent.

When we went to the beach, we passed by this red gumamela bush in a neighbor’s front yard. In the middle, sometimes hidden by the red petals, were these itty-bitty, punchy yellow dots which were pollen on the anthers. There’s a study in contrast right there!

The day started at 4:30 in the morning. No kidding. Our chore was to sweep the grounds while the adults cooked breakfast. How we could ever do that task properly when it was pitch dark was something I didn’t fully understand. We had to say “tabi” (excuse me) now and then, just in case we dislodged an elf or two with our brooms. The call for breakfast was very welcome indeed. I loved the eggs even if they were small because they came from native chickens. When you cracked one open, you’d see this deep golden yolk, so yellow that it bordered on orange, and they were so tasty!

The last sunshiny memory I have for yellow that I’d like to share is nangka or langka, that pungent, stinky, juicy fruit with the thorny exterior. I’m not a huge fan. I can eat a few arils but I much prefer the boiled seeds. I don’t know why though when it just tastes starchy.

Greener than Grass

Mood Board 2: Organic Longings Evoked by Palette Be Here

There are certain tropical foliage that look very dark green with tinges of blue, especially when seen in the shade. As a child, I really loved philodendron, and still do today. Although I didn’t know what it was called then, I was just really drawn to those big leaves which had “fingers”.  For the past year, I’ve been putting two cut leaves in a big vase in my living room as a reminder of those summer days. It does not hurt that they are also very trendy. The third reason for having them at home is because they are so low-maintenance, which is great for someone who can kill cacti. And the fourth is that they can last for more than a month!

Banana leaves are equally trendy, even H&M Home likes them on their cushion covers. A banana tree has big, broad blades with supporting midribs, and their colors can range from a light to a deep green. They were so useful. We’d use them as plates during picnics or as wrappers for food like rice, budbud or suman, puto, bibingka, bico, atsal…

Have you ever been to a bamboo grove? The sound of leaves rustling in the breeze was mesmerizing, like secrets being whispered. But then when the stems started creaking, it was spooky. My imagination was never timid, especially not when I heard stories about children being spirited away into a bamboo grove by fairies, never to be heard of again. Now that tale definitely did not end with “And they lived happily ever after.”

Are you looking for a color palette that invites you to embrace nature and be in the moment? The Be Here palette of Color Trend 2018 is my favorite. I usually go for subdued colors. However, for this year’s Color Trend, I find the dusky mauves Root Crop and Gypsy Train, the deep green of Forest Ranger, the burnt yellow of Yellowstone Park, and the neutrals Marble Chalk and inky Night Watch, so attractive.

Disclaimer: These colors may not exactly match actual paint

What draws me to this palette is its organic feel. With these colors you are inviting nature in, in a subtle way, and are giving your space a grounded vibe.

Embrace Nature in Your Living Room

Professional stylist Love Ocampo designed the living room in SM Home’s March room sets. She used a grey sofa to contrast with the deep green wall. You could see the same grey in the swirls and veins of a white marble center table, as well as the grey round side table.

The geometric black and white lines and patterns on the rugs, the throw, and the cushion covers add energy and excitement to the interior. The textures of the fabrics also add visual weight to the room, making the space more intimate and welcoming. The rough textures are a great counterpoint to the smooth marble of the table tops. Indoor plants emphasize the room’s organic feel.

Note how the yellow accent cushion in an ethnic pattern gives the space a dash of flair. This sunshine splash of color ties the whole room together and gives it that added zing.

New Room Vignettes

SM Home’s assistant vice president for Marketing Tom Castaneda is making new room vignettes for even more inspiration. Watch this space for further announcements.

[This year] will be dominated by pattern. Tropical vibes will be seen as a mainstay in design across the board with ’80s shapes and overscale upholstery taking place of the more tailored mid-century shapes seen prominently in the last couple of years.
—Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Quote is taken from Virginia van Santen’s article entitled 16 Interior Design Predictions for 2018

Martyn Bullard, multi-awarded interior designer based in Los Angeles, predicts that tropical vibes will be a trend this year. ““Beige interiors are banished, making way for color and pattern…,” he added.

Tropical Vibes

Tropical vibes in interior design abound in this year’s interior furnishings. I saw this in H&M Home, one of my favorite stores. They have gorgeous home accessories that explode with color and whimsy. From cushions, towels, linens, to curtains, bold splashes of color speak of tropical heat and a lush life. It’s not only in fabric that you see tropical patterns and designs, but also on cups, plates and trays, and in the shape of jars and trays as well.

Three Colorful Palettes in Color Trend 2018

Boysen has three palettes out of four — Be Bold, Be Seen and Be Here — that showcase bright, bold colors for this year. With these colors, you can create a tropical atmosphere in your rooms, and use accessories as shown above as accent pieces. Don’t go overboard though because your home might end up looking like a caricature of a jungle.

Visit the website Color Trend 2018 to read about the color story of each palette. You can also download the brochure here.

The palette Be Bold of Color Trend 2018 has bright colors, perfect for a room like a home office to give that space a high energy vibe.

Disclaimer: These colors may not exactly match actual paint

Our collaboration partner in SM Home, Tom Castaneda, designed an incredibly colorful and powerful space using the Be Bold palette. He designed it with a young power couple in mind, but it ended up being his space. The three clocks on the wall have a special meaning for Tom. He’s an American and lived in New York, has family in Los Angeles, and now resides in Manila. So those are the three time zones that matter to him.

Other Collaborations between Boysen and SM

We started collaborating with Tom last year and we’ve made so many room sets using Color Trend 2017 and 2016. Here are just three of those spaces :

After a year of existence, I thought this blog could do with something new. Mood boards perhaps? Designer-at-large Mirz was roped in to join me, after all there’s just two of us most of the time. After two short discussions, we trawled book stores and craft shops to choose our tools and materials. We went our separate ways to make mood boards on our own.

Why My First Mood Board is a Nursery

Ever since my grandnephew was born in October last year, I’ve been having these tender feelings which I can only describe as maternal. Moi! Middle-aged, childless and a workaholic! When I looked through the blog to make a video for the blog’s first anniversary in February, I discovered that I wrote something about baby rooms entitled The Grey Palette as an Alternative for Baby Rooms in November, a few weeks after he was born.

So this quote is true after all, “If you want to know where your heart is, look to where your mind goes when it wanders.”

Not a day goes by that I don’t think about the baby boy, whom the family affectionately calls by many names. Mine are Bochok, Bochokokoy or Chookie. His aunt calls him Bokie and Boobie. His uncle calls him Tuko because Bochok loves to stick his tongue out, even while sleeping. A friend calls him Buchik. His great grandmother is irritated with all of us and insists, and rightfully so, that we call him by his name Miguel.

Color Palette for Miguel’s Crib

I didn’t actually choose the colors in this palette beforehand. It just came about when I was looking for inspiration. This palette is so Chookie! He already has such a strong personality for someone so young. He’s a sunny, bright baby who is usually smiling unless he’s sleepy or hungry. At two months, he started joining in on conversations. Now that he’s four months old, he crawls backwards and leaves a trail of saliva on the bed. He laughed at his pediatrician when she vaccinated him a few days ago. Being able to nibble on his foot is his most recent milestone. Aww, who wouldn’t love such a child! xoxo

Why Mood Boards

After working in different organizations, I turned to more creative pursuits while living in what was at that time the design capital of Europe, The Netherlands. I was importing high-end, handmade, contemporary home accessories from the Philippines. I had to stock three wholesale outlets, one retail store, and one showroom. My responsibilities included buying, curating, styling and marketing.

Mood Board 1: Primary Colors in a Nursery
Screenshot of Pinterest

When Pinterest was launched in 2010, I started digitally making boards, which is a collage of photos, text, color palettes, textures, or objects, that helped me with design direction. It was an important tool to make design ideas tangible, to streamline the design process which provided me the means to capture ideas and inspiration for room interiors.

But for Let it B, I wanted to do something nondigital, something I could do mostly by hand. Somehow I find it very satisfying to cut, tape, paste, search in shops, magazines, the internet, wherever, for inspiration and ideas.

Make Mood Boards with Us

If you enjoy dreaming about colors and interior styles, making a mood board is a wonderful way to give yourself focus. There’s no wrong or right. If you leaf through magazines and see images or ideas that inspire you, or see patterns and colors that you find attractive as you go about your day, then try to put all those ideas in a mood board. Even nature can be a source of inspiration. You might even find it extremely enjoyable and relaxing like I do.

Don’t forget to send us a photo of your mood board! Just email to info@myboysen.com.

On March 1, we had a media launch of the Boysen Color Trend 2018 in the second edition of the SM Home Design Series “In Living Color”.

We presented 24 new colors divided into four palettes, Be Bold + Be Seen + Be Here + Be You = BE BOYSEN.

I can write about it here. I already did in the post last February 26, Boysen Introduces 4 Palettes for Color Trend 2018. Although I do urge you to read it and look at the color swatches, there is really nothing like seeing the colors come alive. That’s what you’ll experience if you go and visit SM Home Makati.

In Living Color at the SM Makati Concourse

SM Home AVP for Marketing Tom Castañeda got first dibs on using the colors and they look gorgeous! That’s bias right there, but if you see the room sets you’re going to fall in love too. It’s really in living color!

Tom worked with four designers to make four vignettes at the ground floor of the SM Makati Concourse. “Cohesion is what makes a design work, and choosing the right color palette for your design objective is essential towards creating cohesive living spaces,” Tom said.

“The good news is that designers will always take a client’s color preference into consideration, and no matter which hues you’re most fond of, a great designer can find a way to make it work.” Tom enthuses, “And that’s what our In Living Color series is all about, we’re setting out to give our customers a sense of how color plays into designs as a whole, and helping them find the perfect palettes for their own spaces,” he concludes.

Dawn’s living room shows how you can use a carefully selected palette like Be You to personalize a space. This space exudes calm and harmony, and can be versatile enough to be a place where home owners can enjoy some me time, spend time together, or entertain friends.

Dining Room designed by Allen Oblena

Allen used the palette Be Here for his dining room.

Color Trend 2018 Comes Alive in the SM Home Room Sets

Allen’s dining room showcases the punchy Yellowstone Park as the perfect backdrop for a huge black and white artwork that emphasizes the lines of an architectural feature. That makes a huge statement in this dining room. He chose a combination of dark- and light- colored wood for balance. Note how the lines of the wood grains echo the lines in the artwork.

Bedroom designed by Grace Mosrales

Grace used the palette Be Bold for her bedroom.

Color Trend 2018 Comes Alive in the SM Home Room Sets

Grace’s bedroom is unexpectedly painted in bright colors. Even then, the result is still a space that is inviting, calming and restful. This is because she chose the Pink Balloon sparingly. You can make your wall your headboard by painting patterns on it, just like Grace did it here.

Kitchen designed by Jennifer Soliman

Jen used the palette Be Seen for her kitchen.

Color Trend 2018 Comes Alive in the SM Home Room Sets

Jen used bold colors to create a distinctive kitchen, despite its small size. You can use color to “divide” a space instead of building partitions. It’s an easy and affordable design trick to use especially in a small home.

Mark These Dates

The room sets for the SM Home Design Series: In Living Color will be at the ground floor of the SM Makati Concourse. until March 11. Visit also the pop-up store in the area which carries items handpicked by the designers.

Make your way to the bridgeway at the 5th floor to see five more setups to get more inspiration on how to combine the Boysen Color Trend 2018 with the furniture and accessories available at SM Home. These vignettes will be up until the end of March.

Have fun creating attractive living spaces for you and your family with the help of Boysen and SM Home.
