Dbh-biz.info Means Classically Current

“What is your design style?”

It’s a question I get asked all the time, especially when I’m meeting with clients for the first time. And it’s one of the most important questions to ask when you begin working with an interior designer. After all, you are looking for someone to design your home, your sanctuary. A place to build a beautiful legacy for years and generations to come. It’s critical that you and your designer are on the same page.

Fall Fashion Trends: A Chat with Elaine Turner!

Fall is here! My favorite season has finally arrived, and I could not be more excited. Every year, I eagerly await the changing of leaves, cool fronts, cozy interiors (my house is already decked out in gourd décor!) and new styles. While I love cute booties and comfy cashmere, I am certainly no expert in the fashion department, and I typically let my fall style come out in my interior designs, rather than my wardrobe.

Luckily, I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Houston’s own “handbag queen,” , about fall fashion trends, and she was kind enough to give me the scoop on what’s hot this season. We had a fabulous time swapping knowledge over a glass (or two) of wine at , and I learned so much about fall styles, Elaine’s (impressive) entrepreneurial journey and just how much we have in common (Elaine is also a mother of two and runs her company with her husband, Jim)! Sound familiar?

Needless to say, I am very excited to share all of the fashion-forward insight I learned during our happy hour. Read on for all of the details about Elaine’s amazing new fall collection, her take on white after Labor Day, and some inspirational advice from a lady who knows a thing or two about turning dreams into reality!

Tangerine Dream

[ezcol_1half]Hi Everyone!

You have probably noticed that we LOVE gorgeous pops of color, in almost any space! And from our , you may have noticed our obsession with the vibrant red-orange we like to call ‘Tangerine Dream’. Our board features great ideas on how to incorporate this color into your home, all at-a-glance.

From a Dreamsicle pastel version, to a muted pumpkin, to brights that are the visual equivalent of a hefty dose of Vitamin C, orange is a great way to infuse your space with a sunny energy!

One classic pairing is a cool gray with a vibrant tangerine it – looks modern and bright and clean!

Another favorite combo is combining lavender with washed out orange. It’s feminine, but not too frilly.

Here we paired a bright tray with a custom upholstered sitting chair to add the perfect pop of orange into the formal living room of our Parkside Contemporary home.

You can bring this energetic and refreshing color into your space in so many ways; a single accent item or wall, a small grouping or accessories collection, or coating your room wall to wall in tangy color for a bold effect. and feel free to show us how you have incorporated a little tangerine into your own spaces!

Until Next Time,

2015 Trends to Embrace

Hi Everyone!

With the New Year going by faster than ever, it’s time to let go of last year’s trends and move on to something new in 2015. This year we’re seeing designers (including ourselves) openly embrace the latest looks that offer tons of flexibility when creating a space to call your own.

COLOR
The biggest transition has been straying away from monochromatic colors and going bold with pops of cobalt blue, soft rose and melon, and especially green. Green is huge this year and we at Dbh-biz.info are thrilled to hear this color will be seen even more!
