Home Design Inspiration Board – Green, Peach, Gray

Today’s home design inspiration board- green, peach, gray.

By now everyone who has followed my home design inspiration board knows that gray is my favorite neutral.  And I’m way more inspired by food than is probably healthy.   Gray is a really sophisticated neutral and it ranges in shades from steely, bluish  to warmer taupe.   And it works with everything.

So today I’m dreaming of Laduree macaroons in Pistachio and Coconut.  I swear I buy macaroons based on color palette.  I could be ordering Menudo or Chalkdust flavors for all I know.  My favorite part of the macaroon experience is the pretty box and then opening the pretty box to the beautiful sugar bomb inside.

Anyhoo,  these dreamy macaroons jumped off the screen at me.  Something about the soft Apple Blossom green and Bashful feels sophisticated but it works as well in a Glam living room as it does in a Shabby Chic bedroom.  These colors are more subtle and almost white washed so the combo is understated but still really elegant.   ‘Specially when you throw in some gray accents.

Room Design: Balancing Straight Lines and Curves

For me, too many horizontal and vertical lines within a room design make me feel rigid and uncomfortable.  Many of you have a similar reaction but perhaps haven’t been able to nail down the cause.  While I love the very sleek contemporary furnishings, I can’t live with the hard-edged feel of the minimalist, straight-lined interior day in and day out.  So if you want to enjoy some of those crisp mid-century or modern pieces, you need only introduce them to elements that exhibit curvilinear shapes.  Whether you add a chair with a curved leg, a lamp with circular shapes or even a throw pillow with a soft design, you are able to break up the stiff formality and usher in a more inviting living experience.

Room Design: Orange you Golden!

Room Design Orange:  I love layering shades of orange, terra cotta and cinnamon with metallic gold tones, tans and browns.  The end result is a really warm inviting space but the metallic accents turn up the notch a bit.   I lean toward more modern lines but I like a nice blend of straight simple lines with curvilinear forms.  Too much of a good thing is always too much of a good thing so contrast is key in keeping a space interesting.
