When tasked with the design of an entire home, one of the first things a designer must do, is create a color palette that will produce flow and continuity for a calm and enjoyable living space. Repeating accent colors throughout an open floor plan is critical for cohesiveness and is the level of attention to detail that these clients appreciated. This was a project that I enjoyed so much that I was sad when it was finished! I did however get to return (it was out of state) when I entered it into a local Home Builder’s Association of Remodeled Homes and was subsequently published. The interior was completely made over, but that’s another blog post. The Color Concept is what brings all the rooms to a comfortable and relaxing state.
The client was a fun couple that wanted this second home away from home to be lively yet inviting for entertaining all their out of town guests. Unifying color is easy to spot in these photos: YELLOW!
The beautifully glazed yellow ceiling with yellow salad plates and under-napkins unify the space and marry it to the rest of the house. Custom table. Grafitti Chandelier by Corbett Lighting.
Custom painted Horse statues reflect the Clients personalities and I had them commissioned by a local artist. The yellow painted back panel of the built-ins and glow of the fire create a vibrant yet warm setting. Notice the touch of yellow in the custom rug on the right in the dining area. Yellows and grays along with plums are a beautiful combination.

A pair of customized ottomans flank the entry to set the tones of color throughout the home.

A subtle black and white theme throughout this home is less stark when warm accent colors are added.
Let the Art speak to the space.
Yellow says fun and that’s exactly what the homeowner/clients wanted for this second home away from home designed for intimate entertaining.
Scale is so important when adding seating to a space, not only is the scale of the furnishing important but the scale of the patterns at play.
A touch of a unifying color situated in various points in the line of vision pull all spaces together.
