2013 Pantone Color of the Year Announced!

Pantone announced this morning that 2013’s color of the year will be Emerald. “A vivid, verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony.” Sounds great to me!

While I personally tend to be more of a bluesy type of girl (crushing on navy, 2010’s Color of the Year turquoise & everything in between), I’m definitely jumping on board with this jewel tone beauty.

Remember, when I showed you this gorgeous jade cabinet from John Richard that I found at market? I fell so hard for it that I ordered it for my own home. Green definitely made it’s mark at the Fall 2012 High Point Home Furnishings Market.

20121206-101809.jpgDesigners & industry peeps went bananas for this malachite fabric from Robert Allen (seen here at Wesley Hall).

So, how should we implement this beautiful hue into our homes? Is it safe to paint a room this color? I say “Yes!”. Thom Filicia lacquered the walls of the entry of the Kipps Bay Showhouse in a breathtaking emerald green. It was spectacular! Wesley Hall features this stunning display of color on their website.

In smaller doses or as an accent: Just a few days ago, I posted Kravet’s new ad for Jonathan Adler on instagram as something that is inspiring me right now. I love how Jonathan made a skirt for this console out of an emerald green fabric. The colors in this vignette are so well balanced.

“It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green.” With richly saturated colors like emerald on the scene, I see a very prosperous year ahead!

Kravet Blogfest2012 Highlights part 1

Wow! What an amazing week! I had such a blast at Kravet’s Blogfest2012! I’m already ready for next year! I’m not sure how they’ll ever top all of the fun we had. In case you missed it, I recapped all of the excitement yesterday on Good Morning Texas.

I was very excited to have 2 fellow IBB designers along for the ride – Brandy Scott & James “JT” Turner.

We kicked off the festivities by perusing ICFF and came across this insanely cool ping pong table by Akke Functional Art.

This Hermes inspired sink from Linkasink really caught my eye. I think it would be such an elegant addition to a powder bath!

Next stop was the Kips Bay Show house benefiting the Boys & Girl’s club. It was a scrumptious feast for the eyes with incredible rooms by notable designers like Alexa Hampton & Thom Filicia. One of my favorite rooms featured this stunning tapestry over the sofa.

Alexa Hampton’s bedroom featured richly lacquered walls in “Dragon’s Breath”. The bed was dressed with fabrics from her personal collection with Kravet. I was very excited to see the suzani inspired fabric since we’re getting ready to use it in a client’s dining room.

This chair was so remarkable in person. The contrasting welt cord was the exact shade of the deep bluish purple walls. The apple green silk paired with the creamy white finish and gold leafing was so fresh and made a beautiful statement in the dining room.

This layered vignette was so well pulled together. I think almost every blogger stopped to photograph it.

The weather may have been yucky on Tuesday morning, but we were cheerfully welcomed by these gorgeous pink peonies at Hearst Tower. We were treated to a behind the scenes look at what goes into publishing House Beautiful, Veranda & Elle Decor.

It was such a pleasure to chat with House Beautiful’s editor, Newell Turner. He was so warm & gracious. Newell and the staff at House Beautiful have embraced the digital world and are steering the magazine to become an interactive experience that the reader can enjoy far past the printed pages. They also fully support the blogging world and have realized the benefits of taking cues from design bloggers.

The next stop on our tour was the Elle Decor Modern Life Concept House. My favorite space was designed by Michael Tovano. The outdoor space was tres chic! We all gushed over the patterned metal cabana.

We spent some time at the D&D building for much more eye candy & inspiration. This wall of ikat fabrics at Brunschwig & Fils caught my eye. They offer a wonderful selection of richly saturated & fresh colors in ikat prints and many more timeless classics they are so well known for.

We ended the day with a cocktail party at GE Monogram. I honestly had no idea about the detailed customization they offered. One of my favorite things showcased there was these braided leather refrigerator handles. Such a fabulous detail!

On Wednesday, we enjoyed an exclusive tour of the Kravet studios. I’ve done this tour a few times before, but it’s always a treat because you get a sneak peek at all of the fabulous fabrics they’re designing. Look what I spotted at Lee Jofa! It’s coming out soon!

During our trip, we were introduced to a very neat company called GlassyBaby.  Created by 3 time cancer survivor, Lee Rhodes, they make artisan hand blown glass votives in an array of gorgeous colors.  “To Lee, they represented “that deep breath that we often forget to take.”  I was very excited to take home one of the turquoise votives.  My apologies to founder Lee Rhodes & glassybaby.  I mistakenly referred to them as “GlassBaby” instead of glassybaby on Good Morning Texas.  Please make sure to check out this wonderful company.  Not only do they make beautiful votives, they have also given back over $850,000 to charities to date.

There’s so much more to share with you! Stay tuned for more photos & details on each of the amazing experiences we had during Blogfest2012.

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!

Bespoke Bench

Good morning design devotess! You’re in for a treat this morning. I’ve asked one of IBB’s designers, Brandy Scott, to blog for us & share some behind the scenes details from one of our recent projects out at Craig Ranch.

I’m so excited to post my first blog with our IBB Design Fine Furnishings followers! Today I want to share one of my favorite recent projects, a custom bench we created for a luxury model townhome in Craig Ranch. You may have seen Shay post it snapshot it on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.

Add some va va voom to your foyer! A bench in the entry is welcoming and sets the design tone for your home. This piece started with Beth and Shay’s vision for a high back bench that was an updated take on a wing chair. We discussed elements of the furniture that we liked best such as straight sides to the wings and the bottom seat deck off the floor with tapered legs to make the bench feel lighter. A single seat cushion and tight back added to its streamlined effect.

Deciding on the correct proportions was important to making the bench an eye catcher! We turned up the volume with an exaggerated seat back height and an overall width that ensured we could avoid seams on the back. To execute the design I did a quick sketch so we could see how all the elements came together and for our fabricator’s reference.

Finally, the finishing details elevate this piece to the next level! A bold stripe in a tone on tone grey and white coordinates with the overall color palette in the house and polished chrome nail heads reinforce the lines of bench. The black and white art surrounding the bench really makes it pop.

So whether it’s a one of kind custom piece designed just for you or a ready made bench, consider seating to welcome your guests to your home with style!

Sneak Peek Saturday: Craig Ranch

For today’s sneak peek Saturday, I wanted to give you a look inside a fun project we just completed out in Craig Ranch in McKinney, TX.

The project is a 4,292 sq ft 2 story town home located in a private gated section of Craig Ranch. All of the town homes boast exceptional views of the TPC golf course. For this model, the developer requested a traditional interior that would cater to a discriminating buyer looking for luxury in an elite golfing community.

The finish out of the home had already been completed by the builder. We were very excited to be called in to be the exclusive designers for this project & furnish & accessorize the home from top to bottom.

Happy designing!

Project Renovation: Oscarlicious Master Bedroom

That will be the word of the day ~ Oscarlicious!  Why, you ask?   As far as design inspiration goes, I was particularly drawn to two dresses at the 2011 Academy Awards worn by Gwyneth Paltrow & Hilary Swank.   The show stopping designer gowns sum up the modern glamour style I’m seeking to portray in our master bedroom.  They instantly sent me into a creative frenzy when I saw them.

I’ve been planning this dream bedroom of mine in my head for years & I’m finally taking the leap to create it.  Not overdone.  Not heavy.  Simple elegance & sophistication that exudes glamour.  Touches of traditional combined with modern options & fabulous finishes.  I love the metallic effect that both of these dresses offer & the textures of the fabrics are to die for!  The colors are even in the range of the color palette I have chosen for our bedroom.  Platinum, nickel, cream & gold are the stars in the room.  I’ve painted the walls Benjamin Moore’s Pale Oak & our trim color is Benjamin Moore’s Could White.  We have great windows in our sitting area & the room gets fantastic natural light.

So, let me give you a sneak peek at my game plan.

This is the bed I designed for my husband & I.  It is my dream bed!  I have been searching for a bed like this my whole life!  No joke!  I worked with CR Currin ( a line we carry at IBB) to tweak one of their new beds to carry out my vision.  It’s upholstered in a chenille tweed from Kravet.  It’s hard to tell from the photo but there are metallic threads woven into the fabric.  The posts are covered in a smoky antique mirror & the bed is finished in a stunning silver leaf.  The factory sent me a photo of it when it was done.  It is shipping this week & I could not be more excited to get it into our room!

To set off our gorgeous bed, I wanted to find something really spectacular to accent the bed wall.  When I saw this wallpaper from Albert Van Luit, my jaw dropped!  It was just the thing to do this bed justice.  It’s a natural grass cloth wallpaper with a large scaled Damask pattern created by silver & gold leaf.   The texture is delicious.  This has my name written all over it!  It makes a powerful statement, so I’m not covering the entire room in it.  That would be crossing over into the overdone category & that’s not what I’m going for.  It will be a fabulous focal point behind the bed.  It’s brand new to the collection, so it won’t be in until the end of March.  Good things come to those who wait…  I’m dying to get it up in the room!

 

 Lighting for the room will take on a more modern flair.  I love these selections juxtaposed with the Damask wallpaper.  The lamps I’ve chosen are from Global Views & very grand in scale.  They will sit like sculptural art on our nightstands.  The inside of the mercury glass base lights up & shows off it’s illustrious qualities.  It’s simply magnificent.  You can light just the base (romantic ambiance), just the lamp (task lighting), or both at the same time (you get the best of both worlds!).  The chandelier from Fine Art Lamps will hang over our bed.  The photo shows the design of the chandelier.  I’ve ordered it in a silver leaf finish with a translucent mica shade & metal frame.  It will showcase the silver & gold finishes being used in the room in one piece.

I hope you enjoyed today’s sneak peek into my house!  I can’t wait to share the room with you when I get it all done.  Mixing finishes in a room can give you a brilliant interior.  You just have to find the balance.  Get inspired & go make your room Oscarlicious!

I is for Ikat

I am a sucker for a great Ikat (pronounced ‘ee-KAHT’) fabric.  Ikat means “to tie” or “bind”.  I love the bold colors & patterns found in these woven textiles.  Similar to tie-dye, the fabrics are crafted using a resist dyeing process.  The threads are dyed before being woven into eye catching patterns.  Ikat fabrics may have made a recent & very popular comeback, but this is no trend.  Although the exact origin &  time frame is hard to determine, Ikat dates back several centuries.  Many say Ikat orginated in India and quickly spread due to trade.  From fashion to home interiors, Ikat is flourishing in the fabric world.  Take a peek at a few of my favorites.

Gorgeous yellow, grey & white Ikat by Thom Filicia for Kravet.

C is for Chinoiserie

Chinoiserie:  a form of European decoration imitating techniques and motifs of the Orient; especially fashionable in the late 17th century and revived during the Regency, or as many say ~ a French term meaning “Chinese~esque”

While researching for this blog post, I stumbled upon a blog devoted entirely to Chinoiserie called Chinoiserie Chic. It’s full of all sorts of eye candy featuring “Chinese~esque” designs.  You really should check it out!

Below are a few of my favorite examples of Chinoiserie

Fabric 101 ~ A Lesson in Durability

For today’s post, I’ve asked my good friends & fabric experts over at Kravet to give us a lesson in what makes a fabric durable.  Selecting the right fabrics & know where to place them in your home is very important.  So, sit back, grab & pen & pad & a cup of coffee (or your favorite cocktail ~ it is Friday…) and get ready to gain some great knowledge on fabrics!

FABRIC DURABILITY

 

When selecting fabric for upholstery, one of the most important considerations is durability. Is the piece going to live in a high traffic area? Kids? Pets? You want to get the most out of your investment and make sure the fabric will hold up through the years.

High traffic pieces such as family room chairs and sofas need durable, tightly woven fabrics that are easy to clean.   Many designers are choosing indoor/outdoor fabrics for high traffic areas because they are highly durable, UV friendly and bleach cleanable. Outdoor fabrics have come a long way from their stiff, waxy roots and are available in a range of sophisticated patterns and textures.   If the fabric is not specified for outdoor use, it can be treated with products such as Crypton or Nanotex for similar protection and durability.

Fine silks and linens are beautiful and luxurious, and they work best in a more decorative capacity such as a formal living room.

When shopping for fabrics, it is common to see durability ratings in terms such as “15,000 double rubs.” This refers to a popular abrasion test conducted by the Wyzenbeek machine to evaluate fabric strength.   The Wyzenbeek machine determines how many double rubs (considered one complete motion forth and back) a sample of fabric can withstand before tearing.   Heavy-duty fabrics suitable for commercial use rate at 30,000 double rubs or more and residential fabrics rate at 15,000 double rubs, which is considered average.   You can test a fabric yourself using your fingernail to rub a fabric sample several times to see if the yarns shift or the fabric marks.

Another important thing to look for in a durable fabric is a balanced weave, meaning all yarns in the fabric are about the same size and strength. These fabrics will wear better than ones with heavy yarns in one direction and thin yarns in the other. A twill weave resists wear and shows soil less than a plain weave of similar quality.  Latex backing can be applied to loosely woven fabrics to help stabilize them, ensuring longer wear.

Flat-surfaced fabrics like damask, brocade and satin show the effects of abrasion because the long yarns on the surface are subject to wear. Pile fabrics like frieze, plush and velvet withstand abrasion quite well if they are made of wool and linen with a high density of fiber. Velvets are somewhat susceptible to marking, so if you want to use velvet in a high traffic area, it’s best to select a poly blend with a tightly woven W weave.

There are many things to consider when investing in a beautiful fabric for your home, and durability is one of them. Understanding how different fabrics react to wear and tear will help you make an informed decision for your home and your family that you will enjoy for years to come!

I’d like to give a huge thank you to Kravet for the wonderful info they’ve provided to pass on to my readers!  I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!  xoxo Shay

Sneak Peek Saturday: Ottomans

Look what just came in to IBB for one of my clients!  I’m a huge fan of adding small benches & ottomans to a room.  They give you additional seating & can also be a fun way to add some style through great fabrics.  Today’s sneak peek is from a project I am working on in California.  The home belongs to a young hip single man who requested the home be done in layers of neutrals.  We’re primarily using taupes, blacks, shades of white & gray.

CaliprojectXbenchpg

The X bench by Century.  I’m using two of these on either side of a fireplace in the formal living room with some very cool art above each one.  The chrome base will add a sleek look  to the room.  The cushions are made out of a rich velvet stripe by Barclay Butera for Kravet.  I am a HUGE fan of Barclay’s fabrics!  I’m using several of them for this project.

CaliprojectHCottoman

This is one of my all time  favorite ottomans.  It’s by Hickory Chair.  I’m using two of these at the foot of the bed in the master bedroom.  The cushions are out of a soft supple gray velvet.  The bottom fabric is out of a small herringbone print in gray & white.  I added chrome nail heads to highlight the beautiful shape of the ottomans.

I’ll be installing the home in a few months, so stay tuned to see a few of the finished shots of the home!

Finding the perfect Fabrics

Kravet, one of my very favorite “go to” fabric lines had a wonderful post today on their blog about selecting the right fabrics for upholstery.  Even as a design professional, I found the knowledge & advice they provided in the blog post to be very valuable.  It’s a worthwhile read for anyone thinking about or in the process of selecting new or re-covering upholstery in their home.  Read their post on upholstery fabric tips here.

Kravet has an extensive library of fabrics to choose from.  They really do have something for everyone at just about every price point.  You may remember me telling you about their new KravetSmart program featuring a more cost conscious approach.

They are also very well known for their ingenious collaborations with interior designers such as Candice Olson, Barclay Butera, Alexa Hampton, Barbara Barry, Calvin Klein & many more.

However, the pièce de résistance for me is their Guaranteed in Stock books.  These books are a lifeline for me when I’m trying to meet a quick deadline for clients.  Case in point ~ I had a rather distressing moment at my own home last week.  Upon “fluffing” my formal living room in preparation for dinner party guests, I discovered that my sweet sweet dog had decided to make my living room chairs her daily place of resting, licking paws & other doggy propensities.  The cushions were in shambles 🙁  With our holiday party less than 2 weeks away, I had to think fast!  I went straight to one of Kravet’s guaranteed in stock books that contained my home’s color palette & selected the perfect material to begin the resurrection of my beautiful chairs.  I had the farbic in hand 3 days later.  My amazing upholsterer will have them back to me on Thursday, leaving me 2 days to spare until our party.  Whew!  Looks like Sassy (my sweet sweet dog) is giving me living room chairs for Christmas 😉

Finding the perfect fabrics can take time.  Follow the advice of professionals in the design industry or work with a professional designer to help you find fantastic fabrics for your home.

NYC Design Trip: Day 1

Well, I’m back in New York.  It seems I can’t get enough of this city lately.  This week I’m here studying under the fabulous Steve Nobel with a lovely group of 9 other interior designers from across the country.  Tonight we had a chance to meet, greet, & treat.  We socialized for a bit & met each respective designer & briefly discussed our hometowns & backgrounds.  Then we were off to our treat.  The treat was getting to go to the Christie’s Postwar Contemporary Art Sale.  Let me tell you, this was a treat indeed!  There were 47 lots and they all sold for a pretty penny.  We all sat watching in amazement at the numbers that rolled in on each one of these fabulous works of art.

Candice Olson=Divine Fabrics!

Candice Olson

In case you haven’t heard, Kravet carries a fabulous line of fabrics from famed interior designer, Candice Olson.  You may recognize her from her hit HGTV show Divine Design.

Candice is probably my favorite tv interior designer.  I can really identify with her design style.  I don’t think I have ever seen a room of hers that I did not like.   So, needless to say, I am a HUGE fan of her fabric line!  The fabrics offer some really rich textures, detailing & even a few very cool & very well done metallics.  I am thinking about using a few in my master bedroom.  There are so many great coordinates that it’s so hard to decide!  I’m really drawn to the black, white & sea blue color palettes.  The line features several in this palette.  One even has tiny pearls sewn into the fabric.  I could totally see that on a few accent pillows to make a bed super luxurious.

Check some of them out & let me know what you think.
