Stay Classic, Be Current: 2017 Hues

Finding the perfect color combinations for my designs is one of my favorite aspects of the design process! I strongly believe design should be timeless and not solely based on the trends of the moment. In fact, this belief is the basis of my “classically current” design philosophy. However, the “current” part of this idea leaves room for modern updates that will stand the test of time.

Each year around this time, the design community begins discussing the new colors of the year, which I find truly inspiring!

Magazine recently shared its favorite 2017 hues and helped spark some new year color inspiration of my own! My personal favorites are shades of blue (navy, cerulean), earthy greens, rich amethyst purple, matching pastel shades (rose, taupe, gray) and a bold sophisticated accent color (yellow).

Here are my tips on how to incorporate these fab colors into interiors while achieving a look for the ages!

Summer Holiday Inspiration: Martha’s Vineyard

With the Fourth of July holiday weekend quickly approaching, I’ve been thinking about the many interior (and exterior) design possibilities perfect for summer celebrations and family barbecues.

For those who haven’t visited Martha’s Vineyard, this quaint summer destination spot, located just south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, oozes charm through its light houses, sandy shores and harbor town cottages. Being an island, the only way to get there is by ferry or air-so refreshing!

Inspired by this iconic summer colony, I created a style board that emulates the character of Martha’s Vineyard!
