design obsession: mixed metals

With brass and copper making a huge comeback in the design world, one of my favorite looks is to mix metals.

mixed metal fashion

Black and white kitchens are the perfect set up for contrasting metal tones.  The faucets and hardware become like a piece of jewelry.

Brass and chrome are an obvious pair, but the possibilities are endless.

 

Aged Bronze with steel gives a modern vintage look.

love this kitchen - black, white, stainless

The key is contrast.  Pairing very different metal tones will give a unique, high-styled appearance.

6 table lamps i’m loving right now

I’ve been looking at lighting for a client this morning and thought I’d share some of my favorite finds:

6 table lamps I'm loving right now

1> drooling over that clean crisp white marble base

2> cream ceramic paired with a linen shade.  A steal at less than $50!

3>  this would make an awesome desk lamp

4> my favorite color dipped in gold.

5> obsessed with this pendant so of course a lamp in the same style would be delightful.

6> earthy wood with your choice of a gray, white, or cork shade. Thank you Target!

For links to these and a plethora of more lamps, check out my Lighting board on Pinterest.  Happy Tuesday!

color story: blush + gold

Blush and gold.   Together they are glamorous, soft, and romantic.   The ultimate girly combo? Maybe…. but this color scheme can be used in many more places than just your daughter’s bedroom.    kitchen with pink & gold accentsSee! Even in the kitchen!  A little accents go a long way.

color story: brown + gold

Nothing says  “IT’S FALL BABY” more than brown and gold.  I’m serious.  These 2 colors are just so beautiful together.  Brown gives a classic, warm feel while gold brings the look of royalty.  Together they bring sophistication and style.  (Example:  Picture a Louis Vuitton bag…..What colors do you see? BROWN & GOLD. Coincidence? I think not!)

I wish I looked this good playing on my phone. Fascinated with the stacked bracelets.

This living room is well dressed.  Notice the cream colored sofa and how well it goes with the two colors.

Mmmmmm.

Gold marble Saarinen table? Yes!
