UNIFYING WITH COLOR

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!

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 subtle black and white theme throughout this home is less stark when warm accent colors are added.

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.

Is #California ready for #BlogTourCali?

The rumor is true; #ChattiPatti is headed to California for a #BlogTour extravaganza, #BlogTourCali! If you have been following, you know that I have attended a Modenus BlogTour once before for the London Design Festival in September, 2012.

October, 2014 takes me to the WestEdge Design Fair and OH MY, wait until  you see the lineup of events for design education and inspiration: You can see more here. I’m really, really looking forward to all the fun and opportunities to meet the sponsors of this great trip and to talk to and hopefully interview many of them and others for Chatti Patti Talks Design future blog posts!
