Interior Design Trends: Kelly Green And Navy

Interior Design Trends: Kelly Green And Navy


Navy and kelly green is a timeless combo. I personally associate it with preppies, whom I happen to love. Though it seems timeless, I found while browsing objects that there really weren't that many to view consisting of these two colors. Do you own anything that is kelly green and navy?

Interior Design Trends : Red, Orange & Brown


Reds, oranges and browns, these are the colors that are associated withautumn. Though it is not that time of year I wish it was because it is so crisp and fresh. These colors seem to be comforting and cozy. You can usually find a variety of items with many color variations. I hope that you enjoy the selected items in this image.

What are your thoughts on reds, oranges and browns?

Interior Trends: Yellow + Orange

Interior Trends: Yellow + Orange


Yellow and orange; thinking of these evokes images of the 70's for me (for some weird reason). While browsing through a variety of items that consisted of these colors, I found some that were rather nice. Do the 70's come to mind when you think of the orange and yellow combo as well? If not, what does?

HUE By Kelly Wearstler

HUE By Kelly Wearstler


"When it comes to color, be confident, go with your heart and follow your emotions.

We couldn't agree more.

In her latest book, HUE, Kelly Wearstler, who has worked with spaces in international hotels and resorts, restaurants and lounges, and boutiques, offers up a serving of "inspiring eye-candy for interior design and decorating fans." In a review by the LA Times, they point out that, "The book offers an introductory Q & A with Wearstler that explores her philosophy cites some of the architects, designers and artists who have inspired her. But photo captions are non-existent, while credits and resources are relegated to an illustrated index at the end of the book. The message? This is eye candy: Look and learn."

Interoir Design Trends: Rust

Interoir Design Trends: Rust


I love the rust colors, always have. They do remind me of fall and I find it is such a beautiful deep, rich hue. I do not really see enough of the color and wish it was around more. I have found several home accessories that have a nice rust tone to them that should fit into a home nicely. Do you like the color rust?

Interior Design Trends: Blue, Brown & White

Interior Design Trends: Blue, Brown & White


Yes, today's colors are blue, brown and white. Some do not like the blue and brown combination and some love it. I am one who loves it. I find the combination to be rich and classy and  when you add a touch of white it completes the mix. As with any color, when it is used all over the place it can be a bit much, but when placed here and there it is quiet pleasing. What are your thoughts on this trio?

Interior Design Trends: Silver & Gold

Interior Design Trends: Silver & Gold


With the holidays quickly approaching, I have been seeing a lot of metallic silvers and golds. Interestingly enough, I have not actually seen them as much as I used to when I was little. I guess individuals are trying to modernize the feel and look of Christmas decor. I miss them. So, here are some pretty interesting silver and gold items.
