POWDER ROOM :: THE RETURN OF BABY BLUE

rikkisnyder blue kitchen cabinets

I have long since waxed poetic on the use of blues in the home. But sometimes it takes a fashion trend to emerge for home brands to catch up on what we already know. If blue is chic, then powder blue takes it to a whole other unexpected level… And while there are many ways to […]

    I have the walls blue in one of my rooms but never thought of matching the walls’ blue with blue pieces of furniture. Anyway these ones presented here are lovely.

ACCENT WALL INSPIRATION :: GIMME COLOR

aqua walls + art // via the design files

With the never-ending sea of white walls in interiors these days, whenever I find space with color – especially color done well – I feel particularly inspired. And it just so happens that Lucy Feagans at The Design Files does this amazingly well every time she host her annual Open House…. The 2013 house featured […]

    I love your choice of colours!
    The first deep turquoise blue is really fresh, and I’m leaning towards your pale grey and blue-grey that looks so good mixed with the warm wood tones!
    As I’ve a whole new house to finalise colour choices on this has been really inspiring!
    Sometimes we need to be bold with colour, used properly or as a backdrop for great art it can be really transformational to a room!
    Thanks,

IN THE KITCHEN :: MOD MEETS FARMHOUSE

Lately, I’ve been drawn to the idea of bold color in the kitchen – specifically in primary tones of red, blue and yellow. But I’m not talking cabinets or wall paint – I’m talking vintage modern accessories mixed with farmhouse style. Think mod pop art, enamelware canisters, schoolhouse clocks and powder-coated industrial stools… In a super warm […]

    I definately agree with you that this is a great idea, by using accessories for that pop of colour!
    For me also full on colour for units and walls is too much!!

    I love the retro feel of your chioces. Updating with accessories means that if you get bored or decide to move on with a different look then it is much easier to update.

PERFECT PALETTES :: RETRO REVIVAL

retro-yellow-pink-burnt-orange-palette

Whenever I’m in an inspiration funk for something to write about on the blog – usually first thing on a Monday morning – I dive into my color files to find something that’s speaking to me. Today? It was this… I’ve really been into these retro-inspired color palettes lately. That vintage brown. A little mustard yellow. […]

    Perfect timing! Though I gravitate to a palette of white and neutrals with texture and maybe some deep emerald green thrown in, I’m trying to be a little bolder in the new place I’m sharing with my boyfriend. Some new-to-us mid century chairs with bright blue upholstery are the jumping off point for this brave new world of colour and this is the kind of fun clashy-contrast that I want to pair it with.

ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: A BOLD JEWEL BOX

Tilton Fenwick sofa detail

I’ve enjoyed putting my sourcing skills to the test lately with these more unique inspiration rooms, but this bold beauty designed by design duo Tilton Fenwick might have been the greatest challenge yet! Barely a peek into the brightly colored space offers a glimpse at how saturated it is with print, pattern and jewel tones… And, indeed, […]
