Packing a Punch with a Monochromatic Scheme

Lovelace Interiors

  By Lindsay Miller

Most every interior designer will tell you to keep your home basics neutral, classic, and non-trendy. But neutral doesn’t have to equal blah. Think back 10-15 years when beach front condos were painted traditional golds and reds, had heavy, ornate bedding, and there were monkeys and palm trees everywhere! Then coastal design went through a phase where the concept was “the brighter the better.” As you walked into a condo the first thing you saw were sailboats, coral and turquoise wall colors, and shells, shells, and more shells. Now design has taken a more neutral stance. By keeping your wall color, cabinetry, and major upholstery pieces in the neutral white/khaki/beige color family, this allows for pops of color change in smaller accessories, art, and bedding.

For example, the Pantone color of  the year 2013 is Emerald Green. Just imagine if you based your color scheme around a yearly trend… from a monetary standpoint it’s much easier to change a pillow than a wall color! So, stick with neutrals, and throw a pop of color in to make that bold statement! If you think neutral is boring, see some of the serene images below that depict this classic design style.

Bolder is Better This Fall!

Lovelace Interiors

In the mood to spice up your decor this fall?  Don’t head straight for those traditional fall colors–give your rooms a burst of flavor with some of these colorful accent chairs and pillows!  We suggest that the bolder the color and pattern is, the better.  Your spirits are already lifting a little more each day, as the weather gets cooler.  Why not also be bright, happy and whimsical with your decor?

Wing chairs make wonderful accent chairs in almost any room.  Give that accent wing chair a punch with a bright, bold color or an unexpected print!  Then, balance the visual weight of that chair with coordinating accent pillows and art.

We love this new indigo paisley from Design Legacy above.  It brings a beautiful, fresh palette of blues together in a rich, saturated way.  The large chevron print on the chairs below make a bold, striking statement.  The accent pillows on the sofa reinforce the blues, while the art brings unexpected complementary punch to balance the boldness of the chevron.

Don’t be afraid of new, rich punches of color this fall!  They make a festive statement that will lift your spirits and brighten your lives.  Come on into our showroom and be inspired!
