Have you noticed all the cute denim jackets that are in the stores right now? I’m so excited this trend is making a comeback. I especially love denim when it’s paired with fun, girlie colors and prints. Like hot pink, swirls, stripes, polka-dots. Oh, yeah…now that’s what I’m talking about! So, this got me thinking. Wouldn’t it be fun to design a bedroom to capture this look? Let’s start with a faded denim side chair from d-Bodhi. Then, add some hot pink throw pillows in lots of great patterns. And, to add the perfect contrast to the bright colors, throw in a black swirl wallpaper. Voila! The look is complete. Aimee from Song of Style captures this look well in her ‘wearable’ version of the combination. If you’re looking for fresh fashion ideas, her blog is definitely worth a visit. Here are a few options you might like to get this look:
Are you looking for a bold accent for your next project? Give this great orange shade a try. Pantone calls it nectarine. Some call it Tangelo. Whatever you call it, it’s a great warm color to liven up any space. There are so many ways you can use the color in your design. Throw pillow are a great option but if you really want to make a statement, go for an orange ceiling! I just love this space from Christina Murphy Interiors. It’s so classy and fun! The black and white print chairs remind me of the spring dresses that are so popular this year. To add a unique, quirky detail to this look, try vintage leather belt flooring from Ting. Such a cool way to recycle, don’t you think?
I’ve always loved fashion design sketches. They are an endless source of inspiration for me. When I came across the above sketch on the Pantone website from Herve Leger, I instantly started cooking up a new design scheme. The design is built around Monaco Blue from Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013. I’ve paired it with some steel greys, textured whites and a touch of copper accents to add a little warmth. A nice blush toned wood floor helps balance out the design.
So, what do you think? Would you like this design palette for your living space?
