Hawaiian Hues

While I was away enjoying my Bermuda Blues, my daughter, Jillian, was on her honeymoon in beautiful Kona, Hawaii.  We were so inspired by the gorgeous Hawaiian sunsets, that we wanted to show you our favorite design picks inspired by these breathtaking Hawaiian hues!  Enjoy!

I love this room from Wisteria because it incorporates all of the reds, oranges, yellows, and pinks that make those Hawaiian sunsets so special.  I especially love how they used such a warm color palette, yet still made the room look fresh and breezy!

Matouk is one of our favorites for cozy towels and sheets, so naturally, these silky sheets look just as comfy as they do stylish!  To tone down the orange, try adding more whites and neutrals to balance out the color, or even add some darker hues for a Fall harvest look.

I love the way the orange in this room is so well balanced from floor to ceiling.  Tying together the color with a rug and window treatments can really make all the difference!

I chose this comforter from West Elm because I just LOVE how the color and texture remind me of the ripples in the ocean as the sun sets over the horizon.  Simple, yet warm and inviting!

With a bold color like orange, it can be tricky pairing it with other “pops” of color.  Here, the greens and blues really work together in bringing home that tropical style!

With all of these orange looks, I had to find something with that really showed off the pinks and purples that can be so stunning in a Hawaiian sunset.  This wall hanging is such a fun way to display a sunset, or even have your own created from one of YOUR favorite sunsets!  Would you try it?

Color Feature: Valentine Red

I don’t know, maybe it’s because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, maybe it’s because everything outside is so gray, but I’ve been feeling “red”!  Just that hot, vibrant color brings a smile to my face on these cold, gloomy New England days.  Here are some red treats to warm your spirit and maybe give you a little inspiration to bring red into your house.  I think every room should have a little pop of red somewhere!!

Yes, you’ve heard correct.  Wallcoverings are back, better than ever.  These are not your grandmother’s wallpapers.  There is no limit as to what we can cover a wall with – vinyl, wood, tile, fabric….the list is endless.  Here are a couple of ideas where a little goes a long way.  Have a tiny room?  Go bold!!

Traditional?  Maybe a toile!  A little more contemporary? Then maybe these bright cheery cherries are more your style.  Either way a pop of “hot” red on your bed will warm up any bedroom.

Anyone else seeing red??  I hope we’ve warmed up this dreary winter day and have you thinking “Valentine’s Red”!

Color Feature: POMEGRANATE

I find color inspiration in the most unusual places.  I just returned from dinner with friends where I ordered a Pomegranate Lemon Drop Martini from Legal Sea Foods in the Boston area.  It was such a beautiful color (and it tasted just as good!).  It seemed like such a different twist on a fall color-  I’m seeing so much orange and crimson hues I thought pomegranate, with just that hint of pink, to be a warm and refreshing change.  So, inspired by my martini, here’s a look at pomegranate in Interior Design!

“Pomegranate”, Benjamin Moore

Always a fan of Benjamin Moore, their take on pomegranate is just beautiful on this front door – not too red, not too “brick”, just warm and inviting.  And the western themed bedroom seems so much more relaxing than the usual terracotta or more traditional southwest colors.

I always love Alexa Hampton’s take on furniture and fabric.  She imparts a modern fair on a traditional piece so seamlessly.  The Allen chair with that beautiful scalloped base and hammered nails is so vibrant in pomegranate!

Anthropologie takes it a step further and a little more contemporary with the Printed Parker Armchair in that fun print!

Bunny Williams Home (always a fan of ALL of Bunny Williams’ collection) has this dramatic Pagoda Coffee Table-  Such a statement piece in any room and the color is just FUN!

 

A little more detail and a lot of texture: that’s what I see in this Las Palmas Grille Coffee Table by M-Geough.  Those legs are sooo cool!  Love the slight turn on the bottom!

Perhaps a little painted wood is more your style?  The Pomegranate on this Lucy Console Table from Pottery Barn has such a tone with its soft sanded wood.

A little more of a minimalist?  Less is definitely more with this Precisionist Table by Amy Somerville.
