    Southern European Hues and Textures - A Palette of Warmth: Delving into the color palette typical of Southern European influence, Åsa highlights the prevalence of whites with a touch of bohemian chic. However, she advocates for richer, more subdued tones, embracing warm terracottas, light blues, soft greens, and sun-kissed yellows. In the realm of textiles, linens, cotton, and natural materials find their place, adorned with botanical motifs or geometric patterns.
