Valentine’s Day Inspiration

What’s not to love about the Valentine’s Day color palette?  The colors for this holiday are happy, fun and vibrant.  Also, with the right shade, EVERYONE looks good in pink!

I have been obsessed with this pink and red silk dress from Staud Clothing FOREVER!!  It is simple and pretty, which is how I like my rooms 🙂  The second pantsuit is bolder with a strong silhouette.  Knowing the way you dress, is important when planning out any room in your home.  More than once, I have designed a room inspired by an outfit.  This is also one reason I tell people “If you don’t like the way a designer dresses himself/herself, you will not like the way he/she dresses your home”.

My design interpretation of the color palette above would look something like this:

The black is a really important element in this design, as it serves to keep this room from looking overly sweet and juvenile.  Mixing gold elements like the floor lamp, side table and mirrors give the room a luxe touch.

There are no shortage of pink and red elements available.  These two colors (especially pink) have been hot in home decor for some time.  Some decor Items I love for this color inspired room are :

Framed printRed striped art, Poppy Art, Pink and Red swirlBlush Art

 

Dot pillowMid Century chaise, Drapes, red pillow, geo table, red chairpink pillowred lampstulip pillow, side table, feather art, baskets

Would you ever do a room in this scheme?  If you have, what was the element you feel made the biggest impact? If not, what is stopping you?

I hope you enjoyed my Valentine’s Day inspired post 🙂

Wishing you love and happiness this Valentine’s Day!

Cyber Monday!

Let the shopping continue for Cyber Monday!!!  A lot of retailers just took Black Friday deals and codes right through until next Wednesday.  For the sake of time, I listed 4 retailers; although, I probably could have listed at least another five!!  Below, are online only retailers with some pretty amazing sales.

Zinc Door: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this site for unique, well made, really stylish furniture and accessories.  ZD has a really sophisticated, modern aesthetic whose pieces are always on point, but never overly trendy.

I absolutely love that cocktail table; the color and unique shape makes it a definite focal point.

Joss & Main is giving 30% off with free shipping using code SAVE30! The wall sconce is a Jonathan Adler dupe that goes for MUCH more! The stool is very unique and a pair would look great nestled under a console table.

Hayneedle – I love this site for fun, modern furniture and decor.  No code necessary, but sale prices are only valid until the 27th.

There is something about a chaise that commands one to relax…..I’m obsessed with chaise lounges!!  Once you have one, you wonder how you ever lived without one!!

Those Serena & Lily bistro chair dupes are a steal!

One Kings Lane is offering 20% off sitewide and free shipping on all orders over $100 with code OKLFREESHIP

The gold etagere would be an amazing room divider or a perfect place to display your one-of-a-kind pieces.

Geometrics are coming back in 2018, so the both of these rugs would be the perfect base to any room!

If you missed Black Friday, here is another opportunity to update your home.  Any of these pieces will absolutely ensure that your home will be ringing in 2018 in style!!

Happy Shopping!
