Fall Inspiration

By Cara McBroom I don’t know about everyone else, but I am starting to get that warm fuzzy feeling of excitement for fall!  I am ready for cooler weather, boots, warm lattes and a cool new shade of lipstick that makes me feel all festive and girly (even though I don’t even wear that much lipstick)! I am not one to browse all the style blogs and read all the magazines that tell me what colors I should be using, but this year there is one color scheme, in particular, that won’t stop speaking to me! It jumps out at me in the jewelry section at Target, and screams my name as I’m browsing art for a client. I’m talking about dried wild flowers and pumpkins! A purple and coral sunset: Lavendar, Coral, Salmon, Blush, and soft Orange. I, apparently, am feeling very romantic, flirty and sweet! I ran across a line of giclees by a company called CHC Art, a company I use often in my design work.  I couldn’t stop staring at the art– I absolutely adore this color combination! And here’s what I imagine this painting would look like, if you turned it into a room: Now, what would happen if you kicked the color saturation up a notch?  Do you love color as much as I do?  Try these schemes: Who wants to go shopping with me?!?  I’m...

Raised in Panama City Beach | Initially wanted to be an Architect | Graduated at the top of her Interior Design class When you aren’t designing and doing your creative field what can you most likely be found doing? Spending time with my 3 yr old boy, Case, painting, drawing, & creating, and if I’m really lucky, reading a great book! What’s in your perfect picnic basket: my mother-in-law’s fried chicken, my mom’s blueberry pie, and a thermos of hot mocha!  Favorite colors: To wear: aqua and olive green; In a Home: right now, Cobalt My motto is: to stay positive- don’t waste time worrying over things that are out of your control.  In my dream house… I would have large, custom closets, a large functional kitchen, beautiful but practical furnishings (with some impractical splurges thrown in here and there), a large play room, small pool, and since we are dreaming here, I would have a live-in maid, and occasional private chef! Ha!  I never have enough…  make-up & workout clothes My perfect day is… sleeping in, breakfast in bed, time with family, lots of laughs, staying up super late, then crawling into a freshly made bed! There is always time for… a great cup of coffee, or a snuggle with my son.  Favorite material/textures:  wool & silk rugs, shimmering linens, soft velvets Antique or modern? I would say modern, but a healthy mix of both can be amazing!  Most treasured possession in your home: My Family. Aside from that, my great aunt’s piano that I played as a girl.  What four-legged friends share your home? My overly fluffy maine coon mix,...
