Inspiration Board: Black, Charcoal & Olive

Decorating with Olive Green | Inspiration Board

This black, charcoal, and olive color scheme has a modern and urban appeal that would be perfect for a living room fit for entertaining.  The track arm sofa has slender arms and simple lines, while the soft olive colored fabric makes for luxurious and inviting seating.  Pairing two different styled sofas in complementary fabrics creates a diverse and interesting space.  The surrounding accents are key in pulling the two sofas together, and the wide striped rug is an eye catching anchor for the room. The mercury lamp adds just the right amount of glitz – a great way to introduce a new material, and the glass reflects a beautiful glow from the light.

Get The Look: Beach Retreat

Coastal Living Room | Get The Look: Beach Retreat

Once you soak in the beautiful ocean view just beyond the big windows in this coastal living room, your eye is immediately drawn to the coral coffee table.  What a statement it brings to this otherwise quiet and subdued color palette!  Introducing the coral accent color to the overall scheme creates an undeniable focal point that brings in a whole new layer of interest to this beach-inspired living room.

Another great design element in this room is the variety of furniture styles.  Who would have thought that leather and wicker could look so natural together?  Keeping a consistent color palette makes the transition from leather to upholstery to wicker seamless and fluid.

This elegant farmhouse bedroom features a beautiful collaboration of warm wood tones and soft linens that create an enchanting space.  The combination of table lamps and overhead chandelier lighting plays an integral role in suffusing this room with a warm and romantic glow.  The scrolling wrought iron bed with flowing white and beige linens is a the natural focal point, exuding a relaxing and luxurious retreat feeling to the room. The delicate features of the chandeliers and the dainty floral print in the rug give the appearance of a predominately feminine space, however, the rugged barnboard flooring and heavy scaled dresser provide the right amount of masculinity to balance the space.

Color Board: Icy Silversage

Decorating with Blue and Gray | Color Board: Icy Silversage

These muted grey, slate, and seafoam hues create a quiet confidence that would be perfect for a cottage style bedroom or sitting area.  This color palette offers layers of soft and understated fabrics for upholstery and pillows or for bed linens galore.  Any combination of the selected paint colors would be perfect for the wall paint or for select painted pieces to accent the color scheme.  White would also be a great paint color or drapery choice to create a crisp contrast among the sea of silversage.
