Color, Color, Color. We love it and can’t get enough of it this time of year. Whether we use it in large doses or small punches its essential to a well designed interior. Colors come in and out of favor but some are keepers such as blue and green. And they are trending right now as sea green and sky blue or as gem tones like saphire and emerald. The following examples inspire and rejuvenate.
This uplifting, traditional style living room is all done up in sky blue and spring green. It’s daring yet soothing at the same time. Green silk taffeta curtains and blue linen sofa contrast beautifully with the iron “branch” cocktail table and leafy print chair.Furniture is by Century, which always provides high style and timeless quality.
Rich jewel tones infuse this quartz surface with life and energy. Picture this as a counter top in a powder room-Wow! Semi-precious stone surface by Ceasarstone.
Pastel, watery blues and greens are soothing yet envigorating and very on trend right now, especially the aqua. You can almost feel the sea breezes; one could spend hours in this beautiful traditional dining room.
Here’s an exciting new look for a Chinese lantern: emerald green. Just pure whimsy! by Charles Edwards.
The ever popular aqua is paired with orange for lots of energy in this contemporary sun room. Fabrics by Sunbrella are great for outdoor rooms and indoor ones as well. Great wearing and easy clean up.
Who is more on trend than Jonathan Adler? Unexpected combinations of color and patterns create excitement and fun. Deep saphire blue sofa combined with softer blue chairs look great on the black and white rug. Note the touches of brass for a change up in metals.
