This month’s post is about implementing bold design and cool patterns. As a Chicago Interior Designer and artist I have been fortunate enough to have clients who allow me to be creative and do what I love. Special thanks to Pam from Duralee, Wanye from Kravet, Lesile from Area International and Ninfa from Schumacher for their time and dedication to creating products that truly inspire.
Below are some of my favorite projects which incorporate bold colors and patterns. Whether it be a splash of color with art, furniture, accessories, wallpaper, rug or a funky upholstery fabric, going bold has never been more fun!
In this project I combined yellow, blue and red with furniture, lighting and accessories to make this vignette really pop. The subtle pattern in the chest and shape of the mirror turns an ordinary hallway foyer into a fun and stylish place- setting the overall tone for the home.
Every baby needs a stylish “crib”. The baby’s room I designed for my client is hip and cool with built ins for storage, a touch of green and a great patterned wallpaper. Furniture is light and bright, with one statement piece. No baby should be without a classic Eames rocking chair.
This living room I designed is clean-lined and modern. I added a punch of color with throw pillows. It’s easy to change the palette out with the seasons. A striped painting I created titled “Architect Series #3”, hangs on the wall and gives this room it’s bold charm.
This dining room I recently completed includes:
-Elegant charcoal grasscloth wallcovering
-Great accessories that bring in texture and interesting shapes
-Unique light fixture from Arteriors Home
-The dining room table was designed to fit the exact dimensions of the space
-Custom console table
-Great trim adds the finishing touches to the room, wainscoting, crown and window trim
Bold patterns were used on the upholstery and the large scale painting I created.
Never know what to do with your collection of coffee table books? Build a wood rail for display and add a museum quality to the space. Pattern and color can come from unexpected places.
A colorful den for teenagers is splashed with bold color and pattern with artwork, a geometric rug, accents of pink pillows and window shades and pop of blue, red and green.
