This bedroom design is so fun! I love how the ‘mariner’ headboard works with all the other design elements in the space…

‘Mariner’ works great with whites and light grays. This kitchen is beautiful…

Always get samples! Here’s why: The ‘Color of the Day’ posts are intended to provide design inspiration. I select projects and products for each ‘Color of the Day’ post based on the color my eye sees in the photographs. It can be extremely difficult to render color with 100% accuracy when taking photographs, especially of interior spaces. The same color can also appear  entirely different in different lighting conditions. For these reasons, the actual color of the projects or products  may not be an actual match to the ‘Color of the Day’. Always review actual samples from the product manufacturer before making final purchases.

Fabric Palettes {Tribal Radial Patterns}


West Elm has a great collection of dinnerware out right now from Potter’s Collection. I just love the lively patterns and the beautiful color combinations. One of my favorites is the above set in blue-grey with a touch of turquoise, black and red accents. Perfect for the dinner table but why confine this look to just the table? I think this look would make a great fabric palette for a project. So, of course, I had to explore this theory just a little bit. Here’s what I came up with…

All fabrics from Knoll Textiles: Spree in PepperSynth in Waveform, Jubilee in Coal/SilverJot in Hot Spot, Paradigm in Chili, Gibson in Vermouth, Grandview in Seascape.

Has this fabric palette inspired you to create something ‘Tribal’ with fabrics? Please share your ideas and let us know how it turns out!
