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?

I have always loved Kelly Wearstler’s work, but this apartment knocks it out of the park! I love all the different metal tones. The home is warm and inviting. I am absolutely OBSESSED with the emerald green kitchen! The color is so stunning and the gold backsplash is amazing. I also really love the brass four poster bed. Which is your favorite space?

Often times attic spaces turn into storage areas or unused space. I ran across some beautiful attic bedrooms that I wanted to share with you. I love the idea of using every area of the home and creating a beautiful retreat in the attic. Take a look at this functional chic attic bedrooms.

I love each an every one of these attics. These spaces are so cozy and perfect for a guest room or master retreat. Although with attics like these I’m not sure guests would ever leave!

Color Obsession: Jewel Tones

10 Jan

Jewel tones are very popular in home decor and fashion. I am a huge fan. The rich luxurious colors warm up any space. Whether you choose sapphire, emerald, ruby, or amethyst the saturated color really adds a great amount of luxury and style to any room. I love the bold use of jewel tones not just in accent pillows, but in the bigger items or even paint colors. Take a look at the luxurious jewel toned spaces.
