Paint Colors by Chip it!® Sherwin-Williams®

What a crazy winter weather up north, hope everyone is warm and safe in their homes with loved ones.  Speaking of love, I painted a quick watercolor study sketch of a room that caught my eye on Instagram.  Turns out it was of Megan Hess.  Megan is well-known fashion illustrator from Australia.  Her illustrations are so beautiful!! Here’s the link to her portfolio.  Her beautiful bedroom has gorgeous white draperies, Ralph Lauren black and white stripe wall paper, and a sumptuous cozy chair. Love this room!!

Who knew this was her room? Not me, this is why is so important to post the names of designers, and creatives of their work when it’s shared in social media.  I know I have the same fault, but it’s never to late to start, right?

More interior rendering and sketches to come!

Interior Decorating with Zebra Prints and Neutral Hues

Traditional Meets Contemporary Styles

Zebra Animal Prints | Deocr Idea Board | Interior Design Board | Home Decor Products

While researching for “Get the Look” post last week, I came across this beautiful room.  The look is traditional but with contemporary lines.  Although this room has more zebra prints that I would use, it works because of the mix in furniture styles and decor which are not ornate.  Example, the simple lines and juxtaposition of the traditional chandelier works well with the more contemporary L shaped sofa. If you would like to decorate your home using this look, remember to start with two style periods, that are similar in lines and color hues. Color is on of the least expensive and fastest way to change the look of a space.  Here, the deep golden taupe on these walls pops against the gold sunburst mirror which adds visual interest and sparkle.

In this design board I used Benjamin Moore paint color HC-23.  And then, I also used Chip it! by Sherwin-Williams on the right.

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.

Pantone Color Of The Year | Tangerine Tango

“Tangerine Tango”

Pantone Color 2012 of the Year

Earlier this week Pantone announced “Tangerine Tango as Color Of The Year for 2012. I love this color! It’s sophisticated with a flirty edge to it, hence the “Tango” name.  “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. Did I say I love this color? !!!

Blues and greens are great colors that compliment tangerine tango, they also cool down the intensity of deep vivid oranges.

Design idea for outdoor living using blues and tangerine tango colors.

Nice outdoor space right? The color in this space has blues and reds, but you can substitute red with tangerine and it would just be stunning! Don’t you think?

********

This bold color is great for interior spaces that need that boost of energy, especially those rooms that don’t receive direct sunlight.  Simple ways to add high impact with low cost results is always with paint like in these photos:

Brown and beige are warm colors which intensify the oranges.  To cool down use whites and grays like in this room.

Do you like oranges? Would you use them in your home decor?

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
