Color Me Happy

Dear Friends.
Moving across the color spectrum we come to yellow, blue and green. These three colors, with all their various shades, create the palette Mother Nature uses in her backdrops. From the sun and sky, to the hills and oceans, these are the colors our eyes embrace merely by just opening. It's no wonder that these hues are so popular in home decor. Especially, to those whom enjoy bringing the outdoors in.

Kim continues Paris in Color, creating beautiful French displays using each color. She allowed each to stand boldly in their individual vignettes. The result is an incredible longing for traditional palettes that many have chosen to diverge from in the latest neutral movement. Timeless combinations of yellow, blue and green are a testament to classic design and reminder that some colors will not fade away.




Lisa chose the book, Fried Green Tomatoes. Though using similar tones, her design is reflective of the style she does incredibly well, Contemporary Modern Country. Beautiful shades of green surround her vignettes as artfully placed pops of yellow, orange, red and blue pull the space together. Elements of the story are also incorporated allowing a smile as you remember the famous shopping cart scene. Represented through a vintage metal cart. It's all in the details with Lisa's work. Scale balanced with color, mixed with a story creates a splendorous happy space.

Orange Works Like Clockwork

 Dear Friends,
Bold orange mixed with fabulous graphics, a perfect combination. No other title can tell that story better than Clockwork Orange. Although the book's concept was not one that Kim wanted to work her design around, the title had all the makings for a great color story. Pops of orange are very trendy in home decor currently. Accent furniture pieces, accessories and fabrics all  bring back this fabulous color in a big way. Kim introduces orange into her vignettes with the same splash. Neutral backdrops become vibrantly alive when mixed with orange. The numerical graphics from the clocks brings your eye searching around the space for more. A bold color choice perhaps, but a brilliant execution that encourages adding color to our neutral pallets. Just like a clock it works.
