Color Friday is: Teal!

22 Feb

I’m pretty convinced this is the *it* color right now. I have three clients who are using some variation of it on their walls, in their furnishings, and as vibrant accents throughout the home. It’s slowly becoming one of my favorites, too.

Here are some of my favorite teal picks – many of them are better deals than you might guess! Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

Color Friday is: Black!

18 Jan

I haven’t done one of these Color Fridays in a while. So I’ll ease back into it with an easy, looks-good-on-everything color: BLACK!

Beautiful Black Rooms

I know black can be pretty dramatic. Some people find it depressing or too dark or moody. But I LOVE it. I think it’s a happy medium between serious masculinity and glamorous femininity. Lots of clients are gravitating toward black floors and railings, which I think is extraordinarily beautiful…dusty and fingerprinty…but beautiful and worth it. I find black to be a wildly sophisticated and easy to work with color, so bring on the black!

Any of these items would be lovely in a room with equally dark walls, gallery whites, or pastel brights. One of the best things about black is its versatility. Not only does it pair well with almost everything, but it is just as at home with grandma’s antiques as it is with the acrylic ghost chair you ordered last week.

Color Friday is: Copper!

3 Nov

I love this time of year and all of the rusty shades of copper that are blowing in the trees. With the storm last week notwithstanding, the weather is crisp and the leaves are gorgeous. In fact, in DC, it’s almost impossible to tell we had any bad weather at all. That said, I’m hoping all my readers and clients who are negatively impacted by floods and storm damage and power outages recover quickly and fully.

Since this week’s thrown everyone for a loop, I’m bringing you Color Friday – Copper! – a day late this week. If you love this rustic shade as much as I do, check out an older round-up: there’s a lot of copper to go around! Enjoy, and stay warm!

Color Friday is: Red!

19 Oct

This week’s Color Friday – Red! –  is inspired by a few red things I’ve recently sourced for clients that are particularly fabulous. The glass pendant is one of my favorite recent finds; but I’ll give you  fair warning that it’s a light fixture on the pricier side, especially for its small stature!

Enjoy these fun red finds, and have a great weekend!  Mine is bookended with two school workdays and a sick husband, but thankfully I’m caught up on work and can relax for a few hours. Finally! Hope you’re up to something fun!

Color (sort of) Friday: Colorful!

12 Oct

I am loving just about everything I see over at LEIF right now. Especially these very colorful new arrivals!

It reminds me of this Color Friday from back in February: Crazy Colorful! Yes, it’s a repeat (I’m trying to keep up…!)…but still, it’s lovely!

Have a great weekend!

Color Friday is: Fall Leaves!

1 Oct

You guys. I’m the worst. I haven’t been blogging, I’m doing the Color Friday I promised on a Monday, and I made frozen pizza for dinner for my family several nights last week. (But I made a salad too, so it’s cool).

Things have been really busy. Lots of great clients, my little one is doing very well at preschool (but we’ve encountered our first fall illness this year – both of us), and my husband is working hard as usual. That said, it’s been a nice past few weeks and we’ve managed to spend time together and with family and friends, and that is what it’s all about.

Plus, IT’S HAPPENING. And by that, I mean the leaves are changing. We were sitting at a stoplight today and I had my car window open and a leaf just blew into my lap. Amazing! I just love this season.

So here is my Color…umm…Monday: Fall Leaves! You can also see the one I did last Fall, and the Fall before that.

Color Friday….and, I’m BACK!

14 Sep

It feels bizarre not to have blogged for a while! I almost forgot my WordPress password! But please forgive me, because I’ve been staying away from blogging so that I could take better care of my clients. And boy, are there clients! September has swept me up in a cloud of school supplies, packed lunches, new renovations, and paint swatches unlike any September before this one. And I love it. But it’s keeping me on my toes.

So without further ado, let’s get down to the typical Friday routine: Color Friday! Today’s color is Navy. I’ve done it a few times before, sure, but it’s on my brain again with more than few clients. It’s also the primary color for a recent room I did for the Washington Post’s House Calls series. In November, my second room for the column comes out, and I can’t wait to share it with you! But today, I’m sharing the usual hodgepodge of goodies. Hope you enjoy!

Have a great weekend! It really feels like fall now, doesn’t it?
