LOVE FOR PLAID

Designer Scott Meacham Wood has a Scottsman’s love for all things plaid. His new line of fabrics, furnishings and accessories, is chock-full of tartan treasures from throw pillows to tufted sofas. Here is a little peek at some of his plaid clad home in the City by the Bay~~~

SINGING THE BLUES

I’m Singing The Blues, not in a sad way, but in an inspiring way. Blue is HOT, HOT, HOT, right now…..in Home Decor and Fashion. I wouldn’t say it is a trendy color, but a classic color that works wonderfully with so many other colors. I love it with Emerald GreenBright Orange. Shocking Pink, Bright Yellow, and Black, to name just a few. Of course, the color Blue, along with Red and White is particularly symbolic this time of year with the 4th of July happening in just a matter of days. Wow, it’s so hard to believe how fast this year is flying by. Nevertheless, I love the color blue no matter what the occasion and thought it would be fun to share some of my blue home decor, fashion and art that I find inspiring which I have curated from Polyvore. Enjoy my Rhapsody In Blue……

HOW TO COLOR GREEN: 16 INSPIRING IDEAS

Green, I love the color. It is the color of balance and harmony. It is the color of growth, the color of spring, of renewal and rebirth. It is the color that I readily associate with the Month of March. It renews and restores depleted energy. Green promotes a love of nature, a love of family, friends, pets and the home. It is the color of the garden lover, the home lover, and the good host……honestly, no wonder I love this color. For heaven’s sake, why wouldn’t you? Anywhoooo…….it is a fabulous “neutral” to use in your interiors, as you will see. While Pantone declared it their color pick for the year 2013, it is certainly not a passé color, by any means. I hope you enjoy these Visions to Inspire.

This was my Inspiration Moodboard that I did when Pantone announced its 2013 Color of the Year.

LIVING SPACES

795fadd513200e96a809eb7b815e3166

What a statement this sofa makes in all of its Emerald glory. Clearly this space is a family space and I love how the bookshelf has been styled. Keeping each shelf organized by color, makes for such a pleasing and cohesive way of organizing, it’s like moving around the color wheel.

In this space, shades of blue seem to be the predominate color, and, then, it’s punctuated with a pop of green, in something as simple as a pouf.

KITCHEN AND DINING SPACES

Doesn’t this space just make you happy? And, that island, in glorious Emerald, it’s the pop of color that just says WOW. What fun!

Green, in all of its varying shades, from the painted diamond shapes on the hardwood floor, to the table and hutch, to the stoneware.

In a word, STUNNING.

Rustic meets Contemporary. Clearly, those Emerald chairs make quite the statement…..no mistaking who the Host and Hostess are.

HAVE A SEAT

Being able to carve out some space in your  home for an intimate seating arrangement is such a wonderful way to creatively make use of a space whether it is a bedroom retreat or a small niche on a stairway landing. I hope you enjoy some of these images that I came across at Luxe magazine.

HAVE A SEAT and become inspired……..

CreamColored Settees1

Here a pair of cream-colored settees are nestled just so along the curve of each wall. A beautiful Fortuny-like chandelier hangs dramatically over the round table that is flanked by a couple of benches for another spot to linger.

Zebra-printWingChairs2

What a cozy retreat to read a book or enjoy an after-dinner Cognac. A very organic vibe has been created by marrying texture and pattern, as seen in the zebra-print wing chairs with classic nailhead trim.

MasterBdrm3

A beautiful Master Bedroom sitting area with French doors leading to a balcony overlooking the backyard. What a lovely spot to sip your morning coffee and let your mind wander over the days events.

ConsoleDivides4

A console table helps to divide a seating area with a pair of oversized sofas.

LakeviewSeating5

Here, a small seating nook was created on the outskirts of a great room with spectacular lake views, which must have been used as inspiration for the ombre-style drapery fabric.

AGatheringRoom6

A gathering room with neoclassical architectural details that have been paired with pieces that pay homage to 20th-century styles such as the 1970s mirror and the contemporary lounge chairs that reference the Art Deco era.

SittingRoomEntrance7

A sitting room at the entrance of the Master Suite has been flanked with thick bookshelves, creating a small library.

A CLEAR VISION ~ LUCITE

Furniture and home decor accents in acrylic glass have a style you can see right through, literally. To make your space crystal clear, add elements of Lucite with a lamp, an accessory or go completely transparent with the ghost chair, which, of course, was made famous by Philipe Starke.  And, if you are looking for a bit of  Lucite history, check out this site.
