Color Gets Creative

While neutrals have a definite role in decorating, it is a refreshing change to see spaces that effectively use vivid colors.

From intense yellow to eggplant purple, several top designers share how they integrated color in striking ways.

Vacation Spots as Design Muses II

We continue our virtual summer vacation with a tour of Italy, which provided immense inspiration for designers Krista Nye Nicholas and Tami Ramsay, of CLOTH & KIND. In fact, they called their recent journey “a design inspiration trip.”

As they explain, “Our personal mantra at CLOTH & KIND is to design spaces with history and heart, with story and substance, which invariably includes mixing old with new, and creating rich layers of texture and patina, so for us Italy was the ultimate inspiration.”
