Color Crush: Chartreuse Green

As we begin to experience the subtle shift in seasons, paired with the evolution away from all-white interiors, we look to color. One color always on our mind, and on our inspiration boards, is green. Greens range from bright lime to approachable pear, and we find ourselves in the middle: in the land of chartreuse.

For as long as she can remember, Beth Haley has gravitated towards the rich color of chartreuse green. “Chartreuse green’s fresh essence has always reminded me to stay true to who I am and not be afraid to be different,” Beth explains. “Like new, spring grass, chartreuse is a reminder of the newness that comes with each day. So, take each new day and express yourself, share your own uniqueness and surround yourself with what makes you happy.”

We aren’t the only ones gravitating towards green. The images below make a strong case for the use of this specific color. Join us in obsessing over chartreuse and add these images to your inspiration board — and we will be doing the same.

Bold color need not be reserved for accent pieces. Go bold, and bring color into any space in unexpected ways.

We brightened this space by painting the ceiling and pairing the paint with fabric that matches.

Ditch the Clutter: Functional Spaces + Practical Design

At Beth Haley Design, we fancy ourselves problem solvers. Beth, herself, is a master at searching for solutions. Whether it be devising a design suited for a large family or making the most of a small space, her ability to prioritize function without sacrificing style is something truly magical.

Beth’s commitment to flow and functionality is a result of her time spent getting a degree in interior design at Watkins College of Art and Design. “I always gravitated towards the nuts and bolts of creating a space,” Beth shares. “Interior design goes beyond decorating and I always start a project by asking the client how they use the space.”

Let’s look back on a handful of projects that showcase BHD’s commitment to functionality and creating livable spaces.

Mudrooms, Pantries, Laundry Rooms + More

Mudrooms and entryways quickly become dumping grounds for bags, jackets and boots. Shelves, racks, cabinets and hooks can keep things looking clean and decluttered. This entryway has a place for everything — even the family pup.

Lately, there has been a reemergence of butler’s pantries, designed to offer additional storage and counter space for entertaining. A bar sink, wine fridge and dishwasher make entertaining easy, and the extra cabinets offer the perfect hiding place for extra glasses and serving platters.

Laundry is no longer a dreaded chore when you can do it in a bright, cheerful locale. In this laundry room, Beth showcases the ability to use color to show personality and well-considered design for a more functional space.

Don’t let a small kitchen leave you starved for storage. A thoughtfully designed kitchen makes the most of the space it has and offers ample room for storage and food prep. Small but mighty, this kitchen is brimming with good design and drawers for days.

Stylish storage is on full display in this pantry that doubles as a drop zone for the kiddo’s bags and shoes. Although the pantry is typically tucked away and out of sight of guests, it deserves to look as stylish as the rest of your home.

Custom closets make getting dressed a breeze. The custom built-in storage in this master bedroom provides room for his-and-her belongings and the ability to hide it all away by simpling closing the doors.

This hallway serves as a transitional entryway and catchall storage space. Our favorite features are the farmhouse-style sink and sliding wooden door that leads to the washroom.

Bid small vanities goodbye. We are in full support of a practical place to store your soap, shampoo and everything else you might need in the mornings. The dual vanity is framed by sophisticated storage to create a look that is both elegant and functional.

Make the most of your home office to enhance productivity. Clutter is the enemy of creativity. Avoid the distraction of papers by filing them away. In this space, storage and décor go hand-in-hand.

Beth Haley Design is about people, community and creativity.

December Newsletter – Best of the Best

2016 has been an exceptional year for BHD. We’ve worked with many new types of clients, completed more work than ever before, and we’ve found new community partners, vendors, and people to partner with. Office wise, we’ve welcomed Mary to the office as a designer and are so happy to have her. Beth has been busier than ever so it is great to have another person on the team. In addition, we are looking to hire another design assistant, so if you know someone special, please let us know! Here’s to a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year. Cheers everyone!

Featured BHD Space: Spaces we Love

The clock is ticking for us to share some of our favorite spaces. Here’s a roundup of spaces we love that we haven’t had the chance to share until now. Hope you enjoy!

What is sweeter than having a guest bedroom dedicated to the comfort and joy of tiny visitors? This bunk room sleeps four and is the ultimate “destination getaway” for grandkids! White wood contrasts wonderfully with the rich mocha walls while fun custom curtains and pillows pull the look together. 

This jewel box of a bathroom is the perfect mix of unique tiles and placement.  By tiling the walls vertically and carrying the look into the shower niches, we created great visual height and texture. We further amplified the look by wrapping the front facade of the tub in the same tile as we used for the shower walls. The look is very custom, sophisticated and stylish, and adds great value. Beautiful custom glass doors keep the bathroom spacious and put the tile work on display. 


We love this MCM kitchen remodel and love the way the space is the perfect example of “form follows function”. This is a beautiful, hardworking kitchen, custom designed for busy, multifaceted lives of our clients. The pullout pantry designed to keep countertop appliances within an arm reach, yet off the counter, was one of our favorite solutions for the space. Planned storage fills us with joy!

Sometimes accessories stay in our mind long after we deliver them safely to a client and this leather turquoise tray is one of them. The color was perfect, rich yet refined and the proportions were just right. We styled the look with a simple vase and two air plant terrariums. Picture perfect.

Featured Event & Vendor: Pre to Post Modern

Pre to Post Modern is one of our favorite local shops for vintage furniture, accessories, and decor. We love that on any given day we can walk into the shop and be inspired by the selection and quality of the pieces available. The store is well edited and curated. With all the work we’ve done the last few months for commercial Airbnb projects, we’ve relied on this shop for readily available, unique pieces. It’s been a total lifesaver! Can’t wait for their holiday event this weekend – shop local this season!

HOLIDAY EVENT: Sunday, December 10, 12-5pm.
