A Rainbow of Fabric Color Selection

Here are our ideas on what’s hot for spring and summer color themes:


Turquoise is a lot more than an additional color from the gemstone line-up. Its multiple hues, shades, and tones blend to paint a world of glee and joyousness.

As with the gemstone, the color is deeply ingrained within human history as one which brings harmony, peace, and lasting happiness. Native Indians thought that the fallen sky stone could ward off evil and offer health. Similarly, this color was embraced by cultures worldwide as one that energizes interiors and provides serenity and pleasure.

The allure of turquoise will lay in that romantic image of sandy white beaches and turquoise blue waters on a memorable holiday. Painting a portion of your house or bringing in turquoise accents often is an attempt to re-create the idyllic image. However, pulling off this fantastic look will take some planning and skill.

Teal, aquamarine, turquoise, and other variants will work well with any scheme and style. Although many homeowners think turquoise is relegated to a cottage-styled or vintage look, it’s an ideal match for sleek contemporary residences, too.



Whether decorating with Christmas figurines and candles for your holiday tablescape or trimming the Christmas tree using natural materials such as jute, burlap ribbons, and straw, natural decor is ideal. The inherent beauty of utilizing Christmas decorations that remind you of the outside and are reminiscent of rustic holidays are a great way to bring natural colors into interiors.

As you imagine log cabins with natural fiber textiles and exposed walls, use them within your holiday home to adorn with Christmas cheer. Lights, stars, woodland animals, throw pillows on your sofas, and bedding in bedrooms are good places to start.

Cushions and Rugs: Are you prepared to add texture and softness to your spaces? Designed by Matthew Lew, this Reinas Rug was inspired by bold color, which includes the bright stripes upon circus tents. Grey, burnt orange, carbon, blue, and dark taupe mix upon this hand-tufted wool piece.



We highlighted some memorable furniture finds that will shine even in the greyest winter seasons. Blue is the word at Kovi this season, as displayed by the array of blue fabrics here. From seating and dressers, these objects add a sophisticated but radiant splash of color–the ideal solution for interiors needing a bold touch.



Do you want to get a head start on spring cleaning? Think about buying some modular shelving to assist you in getting organized. Bright colors like white and orange will remind you that spring is just around the corner, and by the time it arrives, you will be closer to an organized interior. Here in the below picture we see the Elston Engine Modular Shelf by designer Mark Daniel of Slate Design. Those individual L-shaped models are made of engineered wood using a bright matte finish.

I have fallen in love with the pictured Bend Triangle Wall Brackets, designed from powder-coated iron. Now one decision remains: should I order these from Nannie Inez in black or red? As the image below suggests, I am leaning toward the red one. It would go great with some red fabrics in the room.



While vintage and retro may be appealing, it may be only a matter of time before the world of interior design tosses them to the side once again. Getting trapped in a living room requiring a full makeover is inconvenient and expensive. It’s why many designers and homeowners choose the subtle addition of retro decor, as they keep the theme stringently contemporary or modern. Adding one piece of furnishing, a coffee table, curtains, or wallpaper to your accent wall, you’ll develop a sense of nostalgia without having to redecorate extensively.



Minimalism is the art of conveniently, comfortably, and aesthetically living with less. When on the surface of all of it, this duty might appear easy enough, realistically, it’s much easier said than done. A functional, beautiful home with a minimal theme is among the most difficult to design using grey or silver fabrics. It’ll take restraint, skill, and a lot of discipline. For some who usually bring home virtually everything and anything, it’s the hardest thing to do. Minimalist design isn’t about adding intricacies, it’s about peeling away layers!



Since the show Mad Men debuted on television, Mid-Century modern has become all the rage. If conventional retro designs aren’t attractive to you, delve into this unique decorating style. Keep in mind that retro isn’t merely the sixties and the seventies. Borrowing from this classy and elegant design style provides incredible decor choices. Creations of some legends, such as Eames, Eero Saarinen, Arne Jacobson, and Isamu Noguchi, open up a world of countless possibilities. To move away from all conventional trends and embrace a ‘vintage appearance,’ choose these iconic furnishings with spunky hues such as orange, red, and pink.



Minimal living rooms are where the journey begins. Despite choosing a style that oozes elegance, sophistication, and crisp straight lines, there still is plenty to do to add unique personality and character to minimal living spaces. Here’s some inspiration that blends form with class and function with comfort effortlessly.



For most, summertime is a season filled with relaxation, unbridled joy, and a plethora of outdoor events. For kids, summer means weeks without school and long, lazy days of sleeping in, yet for adults, it’ll mean cool drinks on hot patios and late evenings with close friends. Even nature adores this season best as the grass grows greener, trees grow larger, and blossoms peak.

Summer is the most colorful season of the year. Lime Green – Just as refreshing and tropical as the citrus fruit from which it gets its name, the vibrant green shade is reminiscent of waving palm leaves or fresh-cut grass. Because it’s so bold, lime green is better than neutral colors like white and black prints and patterns.



You should trade customary white wainscoting for bluish-green to send ceilings soaring.



We conclude with a reminder that occasionally a striking color combination may be as simplistic as purchasing some tabletop smalls. Below, in the dining room, plush violet chairs include an amazing contrast to robust red tableware, particularly against a crisp background of white and black.
