As you know from my blogging here I have hard time committing to color in a big way- and I see it all the time with clients too. It’s scary to invest in a bold color sofa, chair or even wall color- but it IS easy to add it via pillows, rugs and other accents. And color doesn’t have to be COLOR!!!!! A subtle use of a couple colors or the use of one strong color in a repetitive way can really make a mark.
So in partnering with One Kings Lane, we decided it was time to add a bit of color back into our office since painting over the bold coral walls with white. And since I’m obsessed with blue, we decided on blue with a hint of coral-pink (a great combo!) We found so many great items to make a real pop!
We started with this striped flatweave rug and then added pillows from Etsy complimented by a large blue and white ginger jar and seaglass beads. To add in some pink, quince blossom stems and some David Austen roses :)
I love the mix of stripes and floral chintz.
Someone else who is fabulous at combining colors is Lulu Powers- this outdoor sofa being one of the few examples of lots of color that totally speaks to me.
A more subtle combination of grey-blue, white and black and natural brown wood. Subtle color is still color! :)
And color doesn’t need to mean modern- Lulu’s bedroom scheme here in golden yellow with hints of greeny-turquoise is perfectly traditional but still funky.
What’s your favorite current color to use in the home? I’d say 80% of our clients would say blue!
