Color Envy

Starting my design career amidst the all white craze has really influenced my latest love for color. While you can truly do a lot with white, I have really learned to embrace and love color. I have always dressed with a lot of color (and of course white) but it’s become a rewarding challenge of mine to convince my clients to go brighter and bolder in their homes. I am ready for colored sofas and insanely colored trim work. The more risk, the greater the reward.

Painted Trim
This can be especially fun when playing off of a color in a wallpaper. It will really enhance the paper and really pull the space together.

Ceiling Colors
Yep, that often forgotten fifth wall. If I had it my way, every ceiling in my house would be painted a soft blue hue. What color would you do if white wasn’t an option?

Lighting

It can be the simplest and easiest way to bring a pop of color and major impact to a space. Let your light fixture SHINE!

Furniture

Don’t go “safe” with furniture color and upholstery selections so it will last. You’re going to need to update the upholstery eventually anyways. If you take the risk and go bold, you’ll get so many compliments on it that you won’t want to change it out anytime soon anyways!

Tile backsplash
If you’re set on keeping your white cabinets, at least add some color through the backsplash! And if you’re up for colored cabinets, enhance them with a complementary splash! This is an easy change down the road if you want to keep your cabinets but just change out the backsplash (to hopefully another color!).
