Update For Spring Using Coral Accessories

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Looking to freshen up your rooms this Spring? Still trending BIG this year is the color coral:

Coral is a beautiful color to refresh and lighten up any room. A color combination I am in love with now is coral, navy blue and mineral blue:

I also am loving coral and turquoise together:

Unlike last Spring, coral colored accessories now are easy to find and at great prices. New towels for the bath:

Pillows for the sofa and bed:

Or a throw for the living room or bedroom:

Wouldn’t that blanket above look beautiful folded at the end of your bed?

The picture above shows how well coral works with many other colors. Including browns:

And grays:

And of course all shades of blue:

Look how nice coral goes with green and blue:

Or how about a beautiful, new rug for your entry or living room:

What do you think of the color coral? Do you agree that it is a great color to help bring Spring indoors this year? We certainly are deserving of a happy, bright color to bring in the warmth!

Aren’t Trey Ceilings Grand?

I have not worked with many trey ceilings in the past until recently. This week alone I had two colors consultations with trey ceilinged rooms. One was in a new contemporary home:

catherine bedroom

And just today I started working on this dining room trey ceiling below:

I have never had a trey ceiling,  but I really love the drama of the architecture:

Depending on your preference, there are so many different ways to paint this area:

Some homeowners like a lighter trey ceiling:

Which are beautiful, but the trend now seems to be a darker ceiling at the top:

Love, love, love this room:

Another option is to paint the trey ceiling the same color as the walls:

Which is your favorite way to paint the trey? I have to say that I really like the darker color. Look at this beauty:

Wow! Don’t you think trey ceilings can be dramatic and grand?

I have been working with a sweet homeowner that is loving all of the decorating ideas that I have been giving her while we are working on redesigning her dining room.

Her dining furniture is dark and beautiful. She has an older buffet table that we decided to paint  in Ben Moore Hale Navy HC-154 as a statement piece.

The wall color she decided on after testing with large painted boards is Benjamin Moore Smoke Embers AC-28:

It is a beautiful soft gray with a hint of blue. It will look gorgeous with the Hale Navy buffet!

She was looking for help in choosing a paint color, rug, window treatments and accessories:
