February is a month of new beginnings: it represents fresh starts, optimism, and hope. It’s also a cold month, where we’ve put aside the bonfires and hayrides of autumn and cozied up peacefully indoors. Fittingly, we’ve chosen this month’s color of the month as Sunwashed Brick: a nuanced pink with soft charm.

Sunwashed Brick is, thus, a color that makes sense for this time. It’s a subtle pink color that is soft, delicate, and tranquil, reminding us that this is a season of peacefulness and repose.  

With its slightly dusty undertone, Sunwashed Brick is versatile enough to work with other neutral colors. It helps create a space that feels both a cozy and uplifting at the same time.
