Using this Season’s Hottest Color: Midnight Sky
Use navy to convey confidence, elegance, and sophistication in any room. Add accents of navy to existing spaces with a new rug, throw pillows or artwork. If you’re starting from scratch, experiment with navy in the upholstery pieces as the color anchor for the room. Navy perfectly adds modern style to traditional silhouettes. Add it to a bed or a sofa with a classy frame and you can challenge the assumption that navy only works with nautical themed rooms.
It’s in the Details
When everyone sees the same trends on social media and television, how do you make your space your own? Design Consultant Stephanie James believes it’s the details that can make it uniquely yours. One technique she uses is to ask her clients which part of the sofa speaks to them. Is it the height? The weight of the fabric? The arm or leg? Stephanie will often help her clients achieve their perfect look simply by changing how the piece is outlined.
For a transitional look try baseball stitching, or a weltless style. For sharp contrast and a more traditional look try a contrasting welt. For a comfortable, soft texture try double or triple flange.
Decorating with Mirrors
Salon Style: Create a collage of different styles to add an eclectic feel to a room.
Vanity Mirrors: Add a statement mirror to your bathroom.
Floor Mirrors: An oversized floor mirror enlarges a space and adds a massive decorative element.
Wall Tiles: Repetition is your friend. Repeating a small mirror creates the illusion of a larger one.
