Living with Color- High Point Market
Hello from High Point-
There was so much to see in High Point Furniture Market and our trip, as always, was fantastic. We discovered new manufacturers, saw old friends and had a ton of fun inspite of the awful weather. And we found a new favorite place to eat lunch!
Yes, this is a fuchsia and orange room, but isn't it fantastic? This room was Instagrammed by every designer I know. Standing in this space made me feel so HAPPY. And, really, isn't that how we want to feel when we walk into our home? What makes this space work is the ivory sofa and carpet and nice doses of white in the accessories- mirror, lamps, pillows and vase. It's also grounded by dark walnut wood (hard to see- note the legs) and black iron on the wall. There was a tremendous amount of pink throughout market, both a sophisticated and joyful color.
One of my favorite fabrics is velvet. I love to use it in clients' homes because it is both plush and durable and so very cosy. Mixing up textures is key to getting a room right. This screen has lovely color and scale, while the velvet sofa adds depth and texture.
By comparison, having one color in a room bores our brain. When nothing unusual, interesting, or exciting stops our eye, we kind of move right past without really noticing. Think about adding color to liven your home…
