Can you believe that it’s already one month into summer!? With the season passing by a little too quick, I’ve gathered some accessories and fixtures to help keep summer around longer. Take a dive into the coolest blue hues found in crystal springs.
There’s no better way for a room to say “lounge here” than with a bright light blue painted wall seen here in Tiny Spaces!

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.

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!

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.

Using a neutral paint color in your home is never a bad idea. In fact, it can be the most versatile option. I love pairing neutral walls with bold, dramatic finishes and furnishing that help to set good contrast in the space. Check out some of my bold picks.
Revere Pewter is a great grey color with warm undertones almost giving it a taupe look. This classic shade creates a unifying look that calms and restores. A great transitional color, it’s perfect for an open floor plan.

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.

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.

A few weeks ago my hubby Jared and I were relaxing on the beaches of Puerto Vallarta and within a few hours we were being evacuated inland to Guadalajara. It was a such a bummer that we didn’t get the much needed relaxing time complete with margaritas, however instead of seeing “Hacienda Red”, we made lemonade out of lemons and decided to explore the shopping in Guadalajara. And let me tell you, the artisans are beyond talented in the area- complete with custom metal lighting, brightly painted ceramics, carefully crafted wood tables, and my personal favorite: the luscious colored textiles that are complete with the most amazing details. Olé!!

Copper furniture and accents is one of the biggest trends of 2015, and we’re not surprised as it is such a versatile look. It instantly makes any room more dramatic, and pairs well with light, muted schemes and dark, moody rooms alike.

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of spending time in my old stomping grounds of sunny Los Angeles. The sunny weather and attitude in LA always puts me in beachy mood. While stopping for a snack at Rawberri in West Hollywood, I was struck by their use of the Beverly Hills Hotel’s famous Martinique wallpaper, which turned this tiny shop into a tropical paradise. My love for palm trees was immediately invigorated. While the original wallpaper remains a modern favorite (it can be seen in homes belonging to Nate Berkus and Lady Gaga, to name a few), I was interested in other ways to incorporate an instant tropical vibe to any space.
Bright and bold, there are many ways to bring palm imagery into your space. Besides the original Martinique wallpaper, there are many other bright wallpaper options that help you make a statement in any room. While a palm or tropical plant is sure to brighten up any yard, bring it indoors with a DIY framed leaf, or temporary wall display. Palm prints can also be found on furniture, pillows and accessories. Don’t be afraid to mix up your prints and imagery – why not throw a live plant in a room with palm wallpaper? Check out some inspiration below!

Palm Trees is a versatile green that can be used in a variety of spaces and applications. In the photo below, a similar shade used on the chairs pairs perfectly with the mixture of other greens in the space.
