Pink & Red!

Valentine’s month gives the warmth of pinks and reds popping out of windows!

Passion, love, drama, and strength: red pulls these emotions from us. When we think about designing with these colors we have to remember the huge impact they can have in a space. It is easy for these colors to dominate a room and distract from the details. Like most things in life, these colors are beautiful in moderation. I love these pops of red for a room!2

Pink: This color represents compassion, nurturing, and love. Again, I believe it is best used in the accents or details of a space. Look how fun and bright this white sofa becomes with a pop of color.

I love the combination of pink and orange like the pillows above. Here is a recent set of dining chairs we refurbished for a client. How fun are they!

For a quick transformation of your space try some simple pillows on any sofa, bed or chair.

These table accessories are so cheerful they are sure to brighten any February day!

It may be a bit cold to be thinking about our outdoor spaces today, but I just love this red bench nestled amongst  the luscious greenery!

Another way to make a bold statement without overpowering a room is to paint the wall behind open shelving a contrasting color. Check out this lovely pink wall!

Color can be overwhelming to a lot of people, it scares them. Don’t shy away from a color you love. It might just be the way to invigorate life back in to an otherwise dull space.

 

Indoor Seasonal Changes!

The air is cooling, the leaves are changing, and the smells around us are shifting from summer to fall. There are changes we can make indoors to reflect the turning of the seasons outdoors. One design item that helps us to shift into the cooler weather mindset is texture. Throw pillows are an easy swap out item. I absolutely love these wool pillows!

Throw blankets for chairs, sofas, and benches are the perfect accessory to snuggle up with while adding a little more texture. A faux fur throw calls to me to touch it and wrap up in it. The cable knit wool throws are super cozy as well.

These super soft cashmere blankets add a great pop of color to brighten a cold and dreary day!

Candles suggest warmth. Their soft glow warms up a space visually.

I love these candles that are made to look like your favorite wool sweater!

Picture6These decorative lanterns are festive for the holiday season.

Along with candles you can change up the scents in you home with diffusers, incense, sprays, or whatever your preferred method is. Fall calls for scents such as pumpkin pie…

apple cinnamon…

salted caramel and vanilla chai!

Another fun and easy change is hand towels. Options for these are unlimited! You can pick from simple fall colors to decorated holiday themed towels.

If you have the space, there is one additional furniture item I would suggest adding by your main entrance….a coat rack! This can be sculptural, almost like a piece of art.

If you're lacking floor space, hang several hooks on a wall. These come in such a variety shapes and colors there are surely some to fit your style.

Nesting Tables!

The Holidays are almost upon us and with the Holidays come great food! Everyone knows the feeling, the whole family is there, the house is packed!  You are about to enjoy a love-filled plate full of the Holiday’s best recipes.  You scour the room looking for a place to sit or even perch and then you spot it, the middle seat of the sofa.  You gladly take it and then immediately realize, you have nowhere to put your drink.  So down to the floor it goes.  What could have been a great nibble, is now filled with paranoid thoughts of your red wine spilling onto such a pretty rug.  Well, we know the solution: nesting tables!!!  Everyone has a spot for one and, come Holiday time, you’ll wish you had a set.  Simple, easy and mobile, the following are some of our favorites and we’ll tell you why!

Typical shape, but not the typical four legs.  These wooden topped rectangle tables only have legs on one side, which allows them to scoot right up to you, wrap under the sofa or over the arm of a chair.

Loving the triangle tables!  We can see these filling in the cracks and crevices of the surrounding crowd nicely!

These organic shaped horn nesting tables makes you feel like you are setting your cocktail down on a piece of art!

Picture3

These super sharp nesting tables fold up!  This means when not in use, storage is a snap!

Picture4

Loving the idea of having a nesting cocktail table.  Not only do these cubes fit perfectly underneath when not in use.  They look fabulous while doing it!

For the cocktail nesting option to have flexibility in shape, this pair is available in rectangle, square and round!

Picture6Another way to look at flexible surfacing are puzzle tables.  Breaking this cocktail table apart for a party will be so much fun!!

Picture7

The configurations and locations of this set are endless!
