Mondays Hues: Blue Master Bedroom En-Suite Interior Design Board

Interior Elevation Hand Rendering in Progress….

Here’s is a sneak peek of what I’m working on.  This is a design board of a master bedroom I created a while back.  The look is timeless and sophisticated with a monochromatic color scheme in various shades of blue.  Classic french style infused with a modern flair.  Art is the focal point in the color {Indigo} blue.

Emerald Green: A “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty
that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” – Pantone®

The color “Emerald” is a lively sophisticated hue that reads positive and healing energy, it unifies other colors, like nature’s lush greens does. It is a sophisticated, luminous color which is why designers have used it for years for it’s classic and elegant striking hue.   It introduces clarity and inspiration, perfect for an office space or rooms that will be utilized for long periods of time.  The  jewel-toned emerald color is universally appealing. To name a few, it’s used in home goods, to fashion, to automotive, to technology products.

I love “Color” so I’m excited about this Emerald green for next year’s 2013  {COLOR OF THE YEAR}  :)

How to decorate a room using a bold color?

Tip: Start with an inspiration, it could be from an art piece, a rug, or even your favorite dress or shirt.  Pick three colors [max] from your inspiration and build upon that to achieve a cohesive, simple and balanced look in your room scheme.  Once you feel confident add more colors sparingly around your room using accessories etc.   If you are not so savvy in choosing your paint colors, try using Benjamin Moore® They have loads of design ideas from decorative paints to how to choose the right color.

Fashion + Decor | Orange Crush | Home Decor

Happy Sunday all! I love fall, the season of change, -and less humidity here in South Florida – Halleluiah!  This weekend I’ve been re-organizing and cleaning  up my Pinterest boards, yes making  them pretty for all the new products and images that are calling my name :)  [hint, hint.]  Anyway, as I was changing and deleting I came across this gorgeous beaded dress by Jenny Packham, Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Don’t you think? Well, if you may remember, a while back I started blogging about how your fashion style is a great starting point when decorating your home.  Decorating with your favorite fashion style, it makes your space that much more personal. Select your favorite piece of clothing from your closet, choose three colors from it, and if it’s a solid like in this dress, add your choice of accessories to the mix for a more dynamic look. To help in making the selection easier, use a design “mood board” to visualize the look before you buy. Easy peasy!

For inspirational rooms with the color “orange” “tangerine tango” and “orange spice” click here, and here.

  I was inspired by the simple style in this solid bold orange dress the beads, the model’s hair style and color.

Color Scheme Mood Board Living Room: Contemporary Style with bold orange for accent, neutral color (white heron) to calm the bright, and dark brown to ground the room.

Love this room in deep pink hue (rose color).  White molding breaks up the intensity while adding contrast for visual impact.  Also, it’s girly but in a grown up way. 

How great does this bombe chest look in pink!

Decorating with Color

Decorating with Dark Colors

Navy and White {Mondays Hues}

Color sets the mood and adds interest to a space.  One simple and inexpensive way to do this is with paint.  Color can also make a space feel smaller or larger.  Warmer hues seem to advance toward you because cooler colors recede away from you.

Contrast of light and dark colors give a space a sophisticated look.  Here are some great examples of Interior Designers who achieved this by incorporating dark blues and whites in the room’s color palette.

Samantha Pynn is one of my favorite Canadian Interior Decorators.  She uses color so beautifully, fresh and exciting and balanced.  In this room she uses white to add contrast to the navy wall color which gives it a sophisticated look. It’s balanced by using dark wood floors and blues throughout the space with fun yellow accessories.

Here the designer also uses white bedding against dark blue walls and black furniture.

Add a colorful painting and incorporate those colors into the room’s decor.  When accessorizing, a little goes a long way especially in the bathroom!

The Hues of Nature – Grays

Hello friends,
Short and sweet post, it’s been a crazy busy week.

Well, it’s that time of the year again when the flowers start to flourish and the trees foliage get fuller. Here in South Florida we get most of year round of sunshine and greenery, seasonal changes are minimal. But… enough with the cold weather already!

Off to walks in the park and beaches to met again. I took some pictures several weeks ago, here are some I’ll share with you. Grays, how would you use these in your decor? This is what to mind for me…


I like to use crisp white sheets, they are  best for everyday use.

Bed sheets – William-Sonoma Home Signature Linen Bedding

Duvet – WSHome Ikat Damask Printed Duvet

Bed frame and headboard Natural – WS Home Sutton Bed Made in the U.S.A. part of Green Collection.

Lighting – Lamps Plus Possini Euro Design Polished Nickel Single Sphere Table Lamp

Wall paint color – Benjamin Moore Paints Misty Memories 2118-60

Bring the outdoors in with a little green indoor plants, candles (keep it in the ivories and whites hues) to set the mood for relaxation, soft comfortable rug and a cozy chair for reading.  Now what books to read?
