Decorating with Yellow

There are an infinite amount of ways color can add character and ambiance to any space.

Yellow is a great color that can truly speak to any design aesthetic and style. Here are my tips on adding hints or even bold statements of this cheerful color to your home

Decorating with yellow can be as simple as adding a piece of artwork
with the primary most dominant color throughout the piece, such as this

beautiful abstract painting.

How about adding yellow to a hot and bold color scheme room!?

You can liven up any space with this color, as iot adds constrast,

brightness and a fresh approach to a bold palatte.

Choose an accent wall in your home and throw on some wallpaper
with graphic elements to really add interest to a monochromatic scheme,
such as this white kitchen! Look how the accent wall livens up the space!
Paint and even tasteful stenciling could create this chic look under a tight budget.

Look at this FABULOUS armoire! You know how I adore Asian pieces and art.
Spice up your old furniture with a coat of your favorite shade of yellow, and use it
as a accent piece. This will help create a focal point in the room, especially if it a large
casegood such as the one shown above.

Yellow can be toned down and muted for a peaceful and serene setting.

Add more textured linens and textiles to add dimension and comfort. Use accent

colors of gold and warm grey to keep a cohesive, effortless and relaxed room.

What a way to welcome guests and visitors to your abode!

In choosing a paint color for your front door, keep in mind what the style and color of the exrterior of your home is in order to find the perfect match! Going too bright and bold with yellow could be a miss, so keep it in a softer shade of yellow and your front yard will really sing!

Add accessories in a similar tone to tie the whole look together!

NU Vignette

You cannot imagine my joy and piqued interest when I was flipping the pages of Santa Barbara Magazine the other day while at the Salon... I stumbled upon a rare find, NU Vignette, an boutique style Interior Design Company owned by prestigious interior designer, Linda Chase. I drove by her shop to take a peek, but it was closed, so I hopped online to learn more about this little gem! Her shop is located in the heart of Summerland, CA a teeny-tiny coastal town near Montectio and Santa Barbara... And when I say rare find, I mean rare! Interior Design in that part of California is hard to come by and lots of designers are sourced from LA or Orange County (further south) to design the mansions and homes of this beautiful area. Please enjoy these gorgeous photos, and don't forget to scope out the website. Have a wonderful day!

Michelle's Living Room- Room Board

Several weeks ago, I was sought out to handle and assemble the task of designing Michelle's living room. She had just renovated her kitchen and floors and needed some help with her living room in her open-concept living spaces. She had already painted the walls this creamy-mocha color, and she had this gorgeous asian urn that I used as my jumping off point and inspiration. I used hues of gold, cream, white and cobalt blue as the color scheme and bold prints and geometric patterns... A bit of elegance for a cozy-home retreat.
I can't wait to see how it turns out!
