Colored Sofas

24 Sep

Ahhh… How I love a good colored sofa. How many of you have the neutral sofa and accent it with colored or patterned pillows? Me too. I have LOVED the idea of colored sofas forever and haven’t taken the plunge. When I buy my next sofa which is probably a few years from now I am definitely getting a beautiful color. Not only are they usually a little more practical (hiding stains/dirt) they really define a space. I have pulled together some of my favorites. I’d love to hear what you think!

Aren’t they gorgeous?? My absolute faves are the deep navy or beautiful emerald. There is something really classy about a navy or emerald velvet sofa. I do love the more vibrant colors too. They are fun and would make a great accent to a space. Which is your favorite?

Contrasting Kitchen Cabinets

4 Jun

Every space should make a statement. In the kitchen one of the best (and my favorite) ways to make a statement is with contrasting kitchen cabinets. By doing this you still have a classic look, but with a fresh and modern twist. Take a look at these fabulous contrasting cabinets.

This kitchen uses the perfect shade of turquoise and white to freshen up this space while still keeping a classic feel.

Charcoal colored lower cabinets and white uppers create the perfect statement. Using the dark grout with the white subway tile really plays up the contrast.

The gray island cabinets create a more subtle statement, but just as beautiful.

I love these blue and white cabinets! It is amazing what some paint can do to totally transform a space.

I think this is my favorite kitchen. The black and white cabinets with the beautiful brass hardware makes a bold statement.

What do you think? Do you have contrasting cabinets or would you ever having them in your kitchen?

Statement Roman Shades

16 Apr

I was recently looking through the current issue of Lonny magazine and ran across this beautiful space with show stopping roman shades.

Aren’t they fabulous?? I began to then look for other spaces that used roman shades as not only a window covering, but as a statement piece. I love thinking of roman shades as an opportunity to incorporate pattern or art into the space. Don’t you?

Home Tour: Mark and Cinda Boomershine

15 Apr

Did you all have a good weekend? Mine flew by! Today I am taking you on home tour of Mark and Cinda Boomershine’s Atlanta home. Mark is an artist and Cinda is a fashion accessories designer. This home is full of life and color. This 1920s home has formal architecture, but instead of letting the architecture dictate the design style the Boomershines juxtaposed it with their fearless and elegant design style.  I know you will enjoy the tour. Take a look!

Color Obsession: Shades of Blue

21 Mar

Happy Thursday everyone! I love the color blue. There are so many beautiful shades. Turquoise, cobalt, navy, powder blue, etc. I love mixing and matching these hues. Blues are perfect for all seasons and pair nicely with many other colors. I think one reason I love blue so much is growing up in Southern California near the ocean blues have always been calming and reminded me of the beautiful water.

So inspired by these beautiful shades of blue.

Colored Kitchen Appliances

26 Feb

So don’t get me wrong I do like stainless steel appliances, but I am getting a little tired of seeing the same look in every kitchen. I have been loving colored appliances. Whether they are black with metal trim, green, red, or even blue I love the extra pop. Take a look at some of my favorites.

Beachy Keen

7 Feb

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for some warm weather. I know compared to the rest of the country California really isn’t cold, but for this California girl it is. As I sit writing this post I am bundled under a blanket. Lately I have been daydreaming of laying on a warm sunny beach. This got me looking at beautiful coastal spaces.  I love the beachy tones of turquoise, white, and coral. Seeing these colors immediately make my mind go to the sandy beach. Are you all fond of beachy spaces as well?
