Adding Color Thru Art & Fabrics

July 9, 2018

I LOVE COLOR!!!! I have always loved color and will always use color but with that being said I also have to say that as I grow older I enjoy a neutral background as far as my home is concerned. I like having lighter and neutral colored walls, a sort of blank canvas that I can then decorate and “paint” the look I want using artwork and fabrics on the upholstered furniture and window treatments. Today we are looking at a home in Atlanta that when it was first built the homeowners did a much more neutral palette in the colors they used, they refer to the original look as Tuscan or Mediterranean. Today they have changed out some of the floorings in the house and brought in a lot more color using their furniture and artwork. The homeowner says after several years she was ready for a change, wanted to brighten things up and have a more”transitional feel” to the home. Join me today for a tour of this gorgeous home and see how you can bring in pattern and color without going overboard. Enjoy!!!

By Tab Byrum

The Lilly Pulitzer brand is known for bright colors and tropical patterns and combining the two into fun beachwear and fashion but they recently worked with Pottery Barn and created collections for Pottery Barn, PB Kids, and PBTEEN. Today we are going to start off by looking at the collection designed for Pottery Barn that runs the gamut as far as color and pattern. While a lot of you ladies will be partial to the pinks and greens I’m especially loving the Reds and Blues just because that’s one of my favorite combos. The collection has everything from beach towels to pillows, bedding, rugs and even planters. Join me for a tour as we get ready for the warmer days of Spring and Summer with Lilly Pulitzer and Pottery Barn, Enjoy!!!

Antelope Carpet & Rugs

Recently I’ve seen Antilocarpa pop up on blogs and in magazines, while this isn’t the Latin name for a genus of the species it is the name given to a pattern of carpet and it’s beautiful. Antilocarpa is from Stark Carpets and it’s meant to mimic the coat or hair of the Antelope, and I’m thinking this may be my new favorite “neutral”. This pattern looks great with everything, it can be used in conjunction with modern home decor as well as traditional decor and design. An Antelopes hide has browns and gold in it with white spots, the Stark Carpet version has several colorways available that I’ll share with you today plus show you how it’s being used in homes. I would love to have this as a living room rug or a runner down our hallway, it’s definitely something to add to the “must have” list, Enjoy!!!
