As many of you know, I have this "thing" about office spaces. Although I love beautiful, glamorous offices that seem to have everything just so; that's just not my life! I am a creative and tend to hang on to any and all that inspires me. As you can imagine, there is just not enough room for all that I collect! So, after coming across Jenna Lyons (J.Crew), office space, I have finally been able to forgive myself and let go of the notion that I want or need a clutter free, pristine space where I am my most creative, in order to be creative!
I am in such a great place right now! Thanks Jenna, you're one of my favorites for many reasons!
Hello there! I hope you all are having an incredible week! Today I'm sharing my thoughts about lighting for outdoor spaces on the Interior Deluxe blog. I love being outside, just like many of you; but I think we forget what a huge impact our lighting choices can make. I'm not talking just tikki torches folks! Okay! Okay! They have their place, but come on! Let's get a little more creative than that! Please click on over to take a gander and make sure to leave a comment.
I've never been much of a pink girl. I really like the color, I do! It's just that, it's always been a little too cute and cotton candy for my taste. However, I have to admit when I see it done in interiors, it makes me smile...slyly.
This salmon sofa is really quite lovely in this living room. With the neutral wall color, the black and white photographs, and silver mirror; as well as the fun pillow in another neutral color, assists the room embracing the sofa and making it a comfortable, yet unexpected asset of the room.
Just as in our wardrobe, it is important to mix and match colors and patterns; as this shows our personality. The black and white tile floor juxtaposed the pink walls really does make for an eye popping backdrop for all of the other elements. This room has a lot of personality without being overwhelming. There is just enough to excite the eye without making you run for the hills!
The blue walls in this dining room sets the stage for the pink of the draperies and varying pinks in the rug to shine and own their place in the room. Take notice that pink isn't the only color that stands out. The white étagère, dark finish dining chairs, and brass light fixture also make their presence known in a very striking way as well.
My personal favorite way of introducing color into rooms is just as how it's shown in the photo above. That one little POP!
