Yummy Yellow & Gorgeous Gray!

You may remember that last year’s color of the year was Mimosa, a warm sunny shade of yellow.  At IBB, we love color.  There’s nothing better than seeing neutrals come alive with beautiful pops of color.  Yellow can instantly make a home feel bright & welcoming.

The color combo of yellow paired with the very chic neutral gray is quickly catching on as one of the most sought after color palettes.  Our model team executed the gorgeous duo on a recent project in Houston, led by IBB designer Susan Neff.  Take a peek inside the family room…

The tufted ottoman coffee table is by Aidan Gray.  I love the shelf at the bottom that allows for extra storage for books, magazines, or a basket to hide your remotes.  Pillows with yellow & gray prints make a splash on the sofa & wing chairs.

The neutral stone gray wing back chairs are by Century.   The art over the fireplace may be my absolute favorite part of the room.  It brings so much life & color to the space & really draws your eye up.

We used a lively yellow & gray print from Duralee on the drapery panels which were designed by our drapery designer Gilda Wood.  The breakfast table is also by Aidan Gray.

Accessorize It!

Is something missing from your home?  You’ve bought all of the big furniture pieces, but it just doesn’t seem right.  You may take a look around & realize that you’ve forgotten to accessorize.  Accessories are like jewelry for your home.  They can help tie your whole look together.   Here’s a few ideas to pull your look together & make your home super stylish 😉

Find a fabulous piece of art.  Use a floral and pottery to pull out the dominant colors of your color palette.

Here’s a fresh take for some coffee table decor.  I love the mixture of textures on these decorative balls.  Some are leather, some are smooth & shiny & some are adorned with seashells but they all compliment the same neutral color palette.  Combined in a bowl together, they make a beautiful statement.

Dress up a casual leather recliner with a luxurious faux mink pillow.  Va-va-va-voom!!!

Animal prints are not just for fabrics.  Try these sleek zebra decorative boxes.  They’ll most definitely liven up a bookcase.  Or, try a more practical solution & use it to hide unsightly remote controls in your family or media room.
