Living Room Reveal

I had the pleasure of working with the nicest couple helping them furnish their new living room.  The room had a nice foundation with a bound sisal rug and textured blinds.  We started by painting the walls Benjamin Moore Papaya #957 and used Kentucky Haze #AC-16 on back of the bookcases.  Once that was complete new furniture from Ethan Allen completed the room.  It's hard to say what I love most about the space, but I do think the Baldwin chairs look stunning in our Mazy Red fabric! The living room glows now with soft shades of cream, red and blue.

2015 Color of the Year

Benjamin Moore has announced the 2015 Color of the Year.  Guilford Green, described by Benjamin Moore "is a silvery green that compliments both modern and traditional styles in a seamless manner." Greens for the last several years have trended more to the yellows than the blues, think more citrusy, less sagey.  I like the calming nature of Guilford Green.  It's soothing on walls and pairs well with blues and natural elements like jute and sisal. This fresh trend can be used as an overall wall color, ceiling color or the pop of color in your room. Take a look at the photos below that highlight this hue, as well as other similar shades of green. 

Love the similar shade used on the ceilings by JS Interiors


Not sure of the color used here, but Guilford Green would be awesome on 
kitchen cabinets.

Bar Carts!

I had a stressful day at work and dreamed of wallowing in my large glass of red wine as I drove home.  It reminded me of a post I did years ago on bar I decided to re-post it, which was much easier than actually blogging about something new, especially after a few glasses of red wine!! :)

For those of you who know me well, know my nightly ritual is a glass of red wine.  And for those of you that know me really well, know that it usually turns into two or three glasses!  Often I am sipping away as I blog, (which explains the various typos).  I love it when I come across a well designed home bar.  Here are a few I thought were worth sharing.

Sarah Richardson-London flat

We all know gray is the new neutral.  It's a trend I don't think will disappear anytime soon.  I was perusing the internet and came across this family room and kitchen and fell in love with the soothing color palette.  This London flat, designed by Sarah Richardson, mixes the tones of gray and blue perfectly. Check out the kitchen too, I am in love the kitchen cabinet color!
