Using a similar couch and flooring,
and working with their personal color palette,
here is an inspiration board I did for prospective clients.
Working with the client, I design three boards;
a preliminary after our first meeting or discussion,
a second for further ideas and development,
and a final board as close to their wishes as possible.

With a program like Polyvore,
I’m able to search for items by style, color, price or piece.

I usually pull items within a specific budget range.
But sometimes on the first boards,
it’s fun to just grab anything interesting,
to show examples of texture, shape and help get ideas flowing.

The title line (seen above, between the board and the products list)
is the link to my Polyvore site.
Check it out for more FUN!

And I’m still floating on air, having been
FEATURED on THE GRAPHICS FAIRY,
so take a look!

Have a great Mother’s Day.
Whether with you in life, or alive in your memories,
it’s a wonderful time for reflection!
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed your visit.

GREAT ways WITH GRAYS

GREAT ways WITH GRAYS

 

Hi All.  How’s your Friday going?

Well, finally Spring has arrived . . . or at least is very close by.
While we’re all glad for better weather,
many are anxious for other changes as well.
At our house, we want to paint the main living areas.
Wait, let me rephrase that.
We both want new paint, but Hubs wants me to be the only one painting.

While we usually lean towards browns and beige,
since our BATHROOM CABINET PROJECT,
we’re going for grays.

So I’m heavy into research for gray combinations.

True, gray tones are trendy right now.
But it’s not at all new in interior design.

In the 1950’s, gray was very popular combined with a dusty pink,
or with a low intensity turquoise.

Think “Poodle Skirts“.

ARTZZLE.COM

BETTER HOMES and GARDENS online,

BHGartzzle.com

has a wonderful article on how great gray is to use,
with nearly any accent color.

Here at our place we’ve decided on two tones of gray,
a light neutral and a mid-tone, darker shade.
As for accent colors, well . . . that’s gonna take a while yet 🙂

Have a great weekend and as always . . .
don’t stress too much, just start it.

There are lots of fun links today, so check them out!
