The Unlikely Pair: Black & Blue

Lovelace Interiors

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.

Fall Inspiration

Lovelace Interiors

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.

NDI peony arrangement: I can order this for anyone interested!

I, apparently, am feeling very romantic, flirty and sweet!

Have a look at this to-die-for Elie Saab couture gown!

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!

From the soft & delicate collection of CHC Art’s line of giclees.

Look at the gorgeous items I found while browsing Emporium Home for a project! Ball Agate Chandelier, and Amethyst Tray.

I can always find something I like at Anthropologie. This outfit and these earrings are exactly what I’m talking about!

Actually, I found this necklace at Target. I took a photo of it for blogging purposes, and then had to drive back the next day to buy it! At $21.99, how could I not?? I wore it today! I can’t wait to mix color-blocked outfits and wear this in the fall.

In case you’re on your way to Target already, why not shop for some makeup? This fall palette is actually by Lancôme.

If you have a neutral color scheme, why not jazz up your décor with pillows out of this Romo Fabric (Mariola Blush), and add some soft art & accessory color accents!

I love this room. Just–ahhhh! I love it! Photo via Shelterness blog

I have a weakness for jewelry. This long necklace is by Marco Bicego.

Pinterest delivers this modern room, with lavender sofa, and tasteful orange accents.

Why not throw in some pale aqua to offset all the warmth? This picture of Venice is a nice example.

I could live in this painting! Another great giclee from CHC Art.

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:

Gimme, gimme some jewelry! More anthropologie goodness.

Let me order you this pillow from Romo! Please! It’s like art for your sofa.

This is a wonderful mix of modern and traditional. Girly, but not too soft! via Tumblr

This makeup palette by Chanel provides the perfect amount of “pop”!

This is an original piece of art sold by Emporium Home, and some cabinet knobs from Anthropologie.

Okay, ONE MORE giclee from CHC Art’s “soft & delicate” line.

…and one last drool over this table setting and centerpiece!

Who wants to go shopping with me?!?  I’m ready!

Go Bold, Go Navy!

Lovelace Interiors

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 textural!

Classic Black and White

Lovelace Interiors

By Lindsay Miller

There’s just something so classically and timelessly beautiful about a stark black and white interior. Add a little gold, and you’ve upped the ante. So, you’re scared of black lacquer walls or a black velvet couch? Start small with a graphic pillow or a glitzy lamp. I promise you won’t be disappointed with the outcome! Take a look at some of these inspiring images that make use this never-going-out-of-style color grouping. Just Stunning!

A Colorful Spring for 2014

Lovelace Interiors

By Bunny Hall

I am so excited with bright colors returning, everything from Radiant Orchid (the color of the year) and pretty in pink, to true fresh green.


The blue crush is coming on strong, with many shades in a soothing palette of blue & white. The comeback of this blue & white combination appears in several different ways: ginger jars, woven fabrics, and fine china.

The color wheel this spring is your own: brights from hot teals, to royal purples, to majestic reds and sunshine yellows. So turn your wheel to your favorite color and add some drama to your home or one special room.
