Oftentimes, in our first conversations with homeowners, there is a request for livability and a home with stylish design. They want it to reflect their personality and unique characteristics without losing its functionality. One way we meet this need in interior design is through the application of color. While many individuals seek a serene muted and monochromatic space, that is not what I am referring to here…today I am speaking to the design preferences of those who seek to be In Living Color. 

Here color is enjoyed on a daily basis as seen in this kitchen and breakfast area…

These clients seek fun, yet livable, color. The two color palettes above utilize dominant colors partnered with white. White, as it is composed of all colors in the spectrum of light, will always compliment the already present hues.

I do love the simplicity of the yellow pedestal as it accompanies this multi-color, floral chair.

I also LOVE the sweet  golden in this photo! He is perfectly content in this fireplace vignette! - Beth Haley Design, Nashville, TN
