“From coastal cottage décor to contemporary interiors, turquoise is a captivating color to add to your interior design. Sometimes the best design ideas come from allowing a space and color to speak to you. The color palette of this painting captivated me and drew me in with its teals and turquoise. The throw pillows and a lacquer box in my inspired turquoise color layered with the three back sofa pillows in a fabric influenced by the color vibe of the painting, bring unity to the space.”

“A black and white space is the ultimate wow statement, taking the most contrasting of colors and creating a perfectly balanced room— the yin and the yang, the darkest of dark partnered with the lightest of light colors. Whether your look is contemporary, cottage style, or French country, black and white works well with any décor. An added benefit to this versatile combination is that black and white is a perfect palette to mix patterns without being overwhelming, and the combo works well when paired with any accent color, from vibrant shades to softer pastels.”

“A shimmering touch of motivating metals will make a powerful impact in your home. From polished and shining to brushed and matte finishes, metal elements add a timeless elegance and a bit of ‘glam’ to your home. Gold, rose gold, brass and bronze, silver, chrome, nickel, copper, and iron —metals mix well with any decorating styles. The easiest way to introduce metals in your home is in your furnishings and accent pieces.”
“A refreshing, stimulating, and positive hue, orange works well with other colors and can be used in combination with contrasting colors, or with soft gray, yellow, or bright white for a fresh, modern vibe. Marking an entryway into rooms is key to sparking that initial energy walking into a space and these two modern orange suede stools create a wonderful boost of energy as you enter the kitchen. To give stools or chairs an artistic purpose, and create a color story, add books with fun, bright covers and top with fresh flowers.”
