OBSESSING ABOUT: HERRINGBONE


I've been working on a client's formal living room and this pattern kept cropping up in the fabrics
and rugs we chose.  I remembered how much I enjoy a little menswear pattern in a room
I wrote about it here first, but today I'm focusing on just one pattern...

NEW LOOK NEEDS NEW WALL COLOR




PULLING IT TOGETHER
Martha Stewart paint:  FAMILY MATTERS
What pulls a room together?  
When you have flooring, wall color, furniture, draperies, wood tones and surfaces that have changed over time; what is the unifying factor that creates harmony?  
Or is it just more than one thing?

THE ART OF ARRANGEMENT


 EDITING A ROOM
'Things' are comforting...

CBID Design

We acquire things in different ways -
some are gifts, some are mementos from travels, 
some are inherited, some shopping therapy - 
but acquire them we do.

NEW WALL COLOR...


 NOTHING DATES A HOME FASTER THAN COLOR......

If I were to say forest green and mauve
you'd think early 80's
dusty blue and pink?
90's
gold, tan, green and red....
early 2000? 
so what color trend will our current decade be remembered for?

THE COLOR YOU CRAVE: BEIGE


NEUTRAL OR NOT
via
For some of my readers, beige is a nice safe color
it is neutral and it stands the test of time
but neutral doesn't have to also be boring...

GRAY AREA

A LIGHTER SHADE OF PALE
Sage Atelier
a lighter shade for a wall color will make a room feel more spacious
a darker shade - more cozy or dramatic

OBSESSED WITH THE DETAILS

BEADBOARD AND PLANKS
Tracery Interiors

I love adding detail to a room.
Details take a room from ho-hum to something very special.
