Faded Denim

Kendra headshot

I love a good Canadian tuxedo like nobody’s business. And the fashion and interior design business has been off the charts with its use of denim this year.  It gives a laid back, like “I’m not even trying to be cool” vibe.  Faded Denim the epitome of California Cool and looking forward to sporting it through the seasons.  Check out my favorite uses.

“Faded denim” by Benjamin Moore (795) is quite a bright and vibrant blue.  I like to use it as a pop of color on a front door to really introduce brightness to a space.  See here by InSite Designs out of South Carolina.

Scenic Drive

All of us are ready for summer to hit and what’s a better way to prep for summer than planning a getaway! With so many scenic spots in the area just a short drive away, I plan on taking advantage of the days getting warmer and staying light out longer. Pack your bags with some travel items that will help you enjoy the getaway without any worries.

Benjamin Moore’s Scenic Drive is a relaxing shade of green that reminds me of lush landscape seen on road trips through the woods. Cocolapine finds a way to capture the color into a tranquil bedroom.

Summer cannot come soon enough! So, in honor of Caribbean dreaming, I chose some fun pieces you can enjoy outdoor. Vacation at home in this Lakeshore teak lounge chair, set the mood with a gorgeous view of Sitges, Spain by Sara Ferguson photography, and get these playful accessories to hold all your favorite cocktails!

I love using bright colors on accent pieces to make a statement, bring liveliness to the space, and it’s just unexpected. The use of this color on these exterior doors is on point!

Sea Salt

We currently have a client that lives in San Diego where the beach is a very important part of her daily routine. She wanted to infuse water and beachy elements without being too literal. Check some of the products that give the essence of the waves through texture, the brightness of the water with hues of blue, the appeal of sand with sisal and the smell of the sea salt with a yummy candle.

Sea Salt is one of our go-to neutral by Benajmin Moore’s Color Story line. It is one of those colors that takes on the tones around it. I like to use it with the darkness of a gray and the creaminess of a white to really make it pop.

Flower Power

Everything old, is new again. As a designer, I am constantly in search of vintage pieces. However, many times clients prefer to mix and match their vintage with new. We currently have a client looking to give a few nods to the 1960 and 1970’s in her amazingly eclectic home in Palo Alto. Check out some of our sources that will make you want to watch episode after episode of Mad Men, throw up your peace sign and give praise to Flower Power.

I love pairing Benjamin Moore’s sultry chartreuse tone with a neutral palette of wood, black, white and tan. Though we often see bright tones in childish spaces, I find when using it in this neutral nature, it allows such a paint color to work in an adult-like space.

Mauve Desert

I’ve never been much of a pink loving girl – I’ve always tended to lean towards cooler tone colors – but there is just something about mauve that I absolutely can’t get enough of. To me, its the right blend of smoky pinks, purples, and greys that make it a great color to pair with. When paired with lighter colors, it becomes airy and soft. Throw in some orange into the mix and it becomes warm and bright like a desert sunset. It works well as a neutral and as an accent. Take a look at some of my findings to see what I mean!

Benjamin Moore’s Mauve Desert nails the perfect shade of desert hues that are so unique and found in the landscape of specific regions of the world. Coco Lapine Design shows how a mauve linen tablecloth plays as a neutral background on a table set with great accessories. The white tableware, brass utensils, dark candles, and matte black vase contrast against the light tablecloth. Romantic and moody? Yes!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Katelyn Porter headshot

I’m all about staying home on rainy days and cuddling up close to the fire with the ones I love. Unfortunately, during the workweek we need prepare to defend the rain. Dance in the rain with these stylish and comfy rain boots from Hunter, take a large, sturdy Bella Umbrella to stay dry and then come home to relax at the end of the day with a chunky knit blanket and cozy socks from Etsy. Warm your body and hands by making a hot cup of coffee or tea to enjoy in a large stone cup from Anthropologie.

Simply White

Emily Finch Headshot

I love color as much as the next girl, but sometimes the best way to show that color off is with a crisp, white backdrop. Especially if the style of the space is eclectic, white walls can help keep everything feeling fresh and cohesive. This also allows the special pieces in the room to really take center stage and sing their hearts out. One-of-a-kind art, vintage textiles, and unique collections are best complimented this way. Believe it or not, white walls work for every space in the house, even (you guessed it) kids’ rooms! Check out some of my favorite examples:

Simply White by Benjamin Moore was just named the 2016 Color of the Year! As you can see above, painting your walls white gives a truly neutral and unobtrusive backdrop for treasured items and architectural details.

Witch Hazel

Even as a child, Autumn was one of my favorite seasons. The chilly days and long nights always filled me with wonder and excitement. Growing up with movies like Hocus Pocus, Kiki’s Delivery Service and later, Harry Potter, I waited eagerly for my magic powers to blossom as I came of age. What little boy didn’t want to grow up to be a witch? (Ok I was probably in the minority for that one.) I eventually realized that the owl delivering an acceptance letter to Hogwarts was never coming, but it never stopped me from dreaming. While I always love a dash of creepiness in my own home, I thought it would be a fun exercise to imagine what a modern take on a magical & haunted & witchy pad would look like – no spiders allowed!

Witch Hazel is a greenish-putty color that works well as a neutral, or as a dull wash of color. In this room from High Society Home, a similar shade serves as the perfect backdrop for other warm neutrals.
