AFRAID of GRAYS . . . Part 2

JUST A QUICK POST TODAY . . .
Perhaps to change some minds about GRAY!

AFRAID of GRAYS . . . # 2

*******

WHY DOESN’T THIS GRAY BELOW FEEL COLD? The picture below is from one of my HOUZZ IDEABOOKS. It’s a favorite for many reasons, but note the gray walls and patterned wallpaper. It’s nice and warm because of the furniture pieces.

The shelves pick up the warm oranges, browns and gold with the accessories and the gray wallpaper backing works, because of the added neutral pattern. This paper use also adds texture and a fun interest to the room’s decor.

HERE’S ANOTHER PAPER BACKED SHELF EXAMPLE.. Erin over at How to NEST FOR LESS used it in her pantry.

LOOK AT THIS WILD GRAY! It certainly heats up this bedroom! (get it, hot … bedroom … maybe I’ll just stick to decorating!) ūüė¶ Anyhoo … another of my HOUZZ pictures.

*******

AS PROMISED, CLOSING NOW TO KEEP THIS SHORT. Have fun with all the links . . . and some of you gray grievers, let me know if things are warming up for ya!

YOU KNOW THE LAST LINE. Don’t stress out, just start something.

Later – Cheryl

Design Inspirations from Kelly Wearstler

Mix Master Contest Enty
I’m Linking Up at the party over at¬†AKA Design and Life today

*****

Hi All.

One of the
WILDEST
and
WIDELY KNOWN DESIGNERS

around today is
KELLY WEARSTLER.
She’s literally everywhere.

IN PRINT . . . here are just two of tons.

ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST featured her, saying “To hire Los Angeles designer Kelly Wearstler is to buy into her singularly bedazzling, high-chroma style.”

VOGUE MAGAZINE, writer Hamish Bowles discovers “Kelly Wearstler brings fearless graphic flair to everything from hotels to scarves‚ÄĒand now, to her own Hollywood manse.”

ONLINE

I couldn’t possibly begin to list every online avenue for Kelly. So I’d suggest a simple GOOGLE to choose which sources look most ¬†interesting to you. ¬†HOUZZ, of course, is on my fav’s web source list. It’s a stockpile¬†(14,800+ images)¬†of pictures of Wearstler’s designs¬†¬†Regular Readers know and¬†follow me there.

In wallpaper

In upholstery and decor fabrics.

And with a wonderful line of accessories, both decor and fashion.

 Be sure to look up her publications, including this one.

A basic summary on Kelly can be found on WIKIPEDIA

CHERYL SAYS: Ms. Wearstler is fearless in her pursuit of design, in any area she chooses to explore.  And need I mention . . . successful in all of those pursuits.

As often mentioned on Artzzle, I like a few things about many, many designers and styles. I very much enjoy her¬†bold use of black and white (DYNAMIC DUO), and¬†I admire her¬†decor AND fashion accessories pieces. While product line pricing is prohibitive to many shoppers’ budgets,¬†you CAN find some of the smaller items¬†affordable if you research online. ¬†And you “KNOCK OFF” DIYers, could have some fun with her wonderful works.

Thanks so much for visiting.
As always, don’t stress too much, just start something!

Later – Cheryl
