Ginger Jar Style

Ginger Jar Style

Ginger jars are popular in the design world right now. They were all over High Point Market in April and we loved the different ways they were styled. Often, you will see them arranged in a collection of various sizes and shapes. They make great focal points in entries, or on dining sideboards. Most are blue and white, but the jar’s pattern varies to lend itself to different design styles. House Beautiful Tobi Fairley Using a traditional element in a new way, is a great way to transition older pieces into your style today. Blue and white is classic and will blend with several of today’s popular color schemes. It’s fun to use them in unexpected ways, such as a flower vase, utensil holder, indoor planter, get creative!

The Unlikely Pair: Black & Blue

The Unlikely Pair: Black & Blue

People may be hesitant to pair black and blue together for an interior color scheme. I think the main drawback is that black and blue together may give the same vibe as black and brown together; some people like to mix them and others strongly don’t want them together. Personally, I like to mix them. In interiors, textiles, or fashion, black and blue together can be really rich and bold! Use these two together to make a classy but chic statement.  Since black and blue can come across as neutrals, add a bold 3rd color for a fun accent! It could be a small accent or a larger presence of the new color.   What I love most about black and blue together is its design style versatility. It suits a traditional setting just as easily as it does for a contemporary design. However, it’s sure to guarantee a mature, elegant, and timeless look.  If you don’t want to make as bold of a statement using black and blue in your main upholstery, rugs, or walls, you can use the pair together in other ways. Incorporate them into accessories, accent pillows, a small accent wall, or side chair. By using them in smaller doses, you can a very rich feel but make a more subtle statement.   Real Estate...

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...

Go Bold, Go Navy!

By Brooke Williams Within the past few months, the use of navy is emerging as a popular trend in Interior Design. There’s no question in my mind as to why. If you think about it, navy can be a great neutral. It’s the perfect alternative for when people don’t like to mix black and brown. Navy is a great “safe” bold color. It’s a very rich color that complements many interiors and provides wonderful contrast to a home. You can add a high sheen or lacquer and this color takes on a sexy new approach- of which I happen to LOVE. How can you bring navy into your home? Furniture and accent pillows easily mix into most all design styles. Navy decor and/or a statement lamp can serve as a solid anchor and collective focal point.  Art is a wonderful way to provide interest and depth on your walls. So as you can see, navy gives that “warm, cozy” vibe and can be modern or traditional, sleek or...
Florals Galore

Florals Galore

By Brooke Williams As the old saying goes, April showers bring May flowers! And so will be true for the Interior Design world as well. Florals are a huge hit right now! High Point Market is currently underway and I suspect many vendors will have implemented florals into their design or inspiration. Of course our fabric vendors have beat them to it! This spring, we are seeing great new florals textiles and wall coverings. Some may think it’s a little dated to go back to the floral decor, but some may like this modern approach to the traditional florals. Take a look at some of the bold, large scale florals that are making a scene. Where could you use a touch of these in your home? Powder baths, guest bedrooms, sun rooms, and kitchens are rooms that can always have a little...
