5 Chic Color Palettes to Steal From the San Francisco Decorator Showcase

Matt Murphy swept me off my feet with persimmon accents (my favorite color) and chic chartreuse furniture in an earthy gray room.

As Nate Berkus so poignantly pointed out, "Paint is the greatest equalizer," because everyone can afford it and do it themselves, and it "cuts out the middle man between Fashion Week and your living room." Berkus was talking paint because he was speaking on behalf of Valspar, but I think the same is true for color in general. That said, I decided to take a look back at the gorgeously appointed interiors of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase for some color inspiration. I certainly can't afford to hire any of the designers involved to update my own interiors, but I can cull palettes to use in my home. A few rooms in particular wowed me with their perfectly chosen hues, so I thought I'd share. Check 'em out!
