A quick watercolor sketch …

Chip_It__by_Sherwin-Williams_–_Home-3

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.

Decor Idea Board | Blue Hues

Hello readers!

Trending in colors from summer to fall and into next year, deep blue hues.  I love how the deep blue combo looks with contrasting crisp whites, very nautical perfect for a coastal modern interior space. I put together this decor board a while back and thought I’d share it with you today. Also, I am currently designing a 3D mood board at #Olioboard and will share that with you later this week.  How would you use this color in your home decorating?

Currently Loving . . .

Hexagon Shapes

 I would love to wear this bracelet with a simple classic little black or white dress.  I came across this cuff bracelet at BaubleBar online store a couple of weeks ago while searching for ikat (hexagon shape) fabrics. It must be a popular cuff because it’s out of stock at the moment.  I hope they bring more back, I want this bracelet! ;) BaubleBar store has lovely jewelry selections from rings to personalized necklace pieces. Their mantra is: “More is definitely more when it comes to the stacked and piled-on bangles.” I totally agree!!

I’m currently working on re-upholstering my dining room chairs and I have my eye on that ikat trellis print (in black, yellow, gray) from Robert Allen @Home Dwell Studio Global Modern Luxe  collection. Decisions, Decisions. . .

Black and white spaces can seem serious, by adding touches of warm yellow it becomes more inviting.

Happy Anniversary | One Year of Blogging

It has been one year this month I started blogging.  I never thought in my wildest dreams I would be doing this.  Me, nope, nada. And write a blog even less. But, while reading design blogs I realized how happy and passionate these bloggers where writing about what they love.  I love design too! so I though to myself, self why not? How great would it be just to write (mind you, I am not a pro writer) about beautiful interior spaces and products that I love. So I did just that. I posted my first post. Great! Ah see that didn’t hurt. Then the next, and next.  And then I realized copy write laws. Uh yes.  You could say I stopped blogging and started researching and came across Design Sponge website.  I found all the information (Biz Ladies section )I was looking for and highly recommend it to any person starting a design or any other blog.  Needless to say,  you’re the editor of a blog as soon as you hit the publish button and you need to know the rules.

This will be my 59 post for this year and having several dozen under my belt by far doesn’t make me a pro at this, but I can definitely say I have a little more confidence. :)  I hope to inspire you this coming year as you all have inspired me.  Thank You!

Here’s a little gold and sparkle to set the mood and inspiration for the new year Cheers!!

Pantone Color Of The Year | Tangerine Tango

“Tangerine Tango”

Pantone Color 2012 of the Year

Image Tangerine Tango Pantone 2012 Color of the Year

Color image courtesy of Pantone

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!
