Lifestyle: Color color color!
This quote sums up how I feel about color. Color is a HUGE consideration when it comes to decorating your space. I often ask clients how they want their space to FEEL when they walk through the door. A color consultation is an important place to start.
Should you update your space with color? What do you prefer? Muted or bold? light or deep? saturated, or diluted? Pastels or Stark? Dull or bright? Cool or warm? Energetic or calming?
There are some great ways to bring color and desired mood into your home.
One way is with textiles.
Whenever new fabrics come in, I find myself using words like luscious, striking, delicious, serene, energetic, and on and on…… Yes, I get a little carried away and can’t help but to start imagining ideal projects for different fabrics.
Here’s what I mean.
For a global vibe, these prints will mix well with other prints or solids.
Tip: Mix large scale prints, with smaller onesThese saturated hues are simply delicious…..I’m in love, love, love! Pair them with prints and patterns, and you’ve added drama and style.These rich golds would be ideal for bedding and draperies.
For masculine spaces, these woven textures are awesome! Reupholster a chair, ottoman and add in a few throw pillows….yeah baby! Hmmmm drapery panels would work too.Comfort and style require plush-ness. Imagine hunkering down into sheer chenille softness.
