IN THE KITCHEN :: MOD MEETS FARMHOUSE

pop color fruit art in the kitchen via martha stewartjpg

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.

VITAMIN C {WONDER} :: A CITRUS INSPIRED TABLETOP

coco+kelley for c. wonder // citrus inspired tabletop

Lately, I’ve been so inspired by the contrast of bright citrus colors against a backdrop of dramatic black – the pair seem like a perfect way to welcome in this slow-coming spring, don’t you think? So I teamed up with C. Wonder to create a tabletop that beckons diners to a brunch that’s sure to welcome […]

SHOP THE PALETTE :: BRIGHT RED + DEEP OLIVE

Whenever a new fashion season comes along, I try to go through all the shows for trends that really stand out to me – including color. I remember saving this one from the Karen Walker FW13 show purely for that reason – the combination of a deep olive green and bright bright red – offset […]

    So glad you did a post on this! I am sad when I wear this color combo and people say it reminds them of Christmas…such a stunning combination together. I want those gloves and those cords now!!!

      people lack imagination sometimes ;) i think wearing it out of season is easier – the closer it gets to christmas, the harder it is to pull off without people thinking it somehow looks ‘holiday’. forget ‘em!

SHOP THE PALETTE :: LAPIS + OLIVE

frank roop living room

This palette has been a long-time favorite of mine. I’ve seen it in quite a few variations – usually in interiors – and it always feels full of energy, without being too loud… I only have one rule when it comes to these colors … I much prefer them in luxe fabrics and classic forms. […]
