Color Inspiration

Posted By Jill-LA | Jan 06, 2010 | 1 Comment | Category: Color, Design Inspiration, Paint

I was just looking at the website Devine Color for inspiration on a color palette for a client project and came across their “collections.”  A wonderful assortment of colors grouped into collections that are aptly named.  This is such a great site for finding inspiration and color resources.  I have actually featured it before and continue to come back to the site as a great resource.  Here are the collections in groupings, take a look at the site for the names of each color per grouping.  Hopefully, you will find an inspiring color palette!

Room of the Day

Interior designer Mary McDonald has done it again – producing a bold and theatrical room full of vibrant color and dramatic details.  In this living room for a movie-mogul client, she created an old-Hollywood glamour. Colors consist of high contrast black, yellow, and offset by a deep taupe.  Symmetry reigns in this living room with pairs of lamps, tables, & chairs – anchored by a big pouf.  Check out the rest of the project and read the interview here at House Beautiful!

Rocket Man

What do you get when you mix Sir Elton John, his partner David Furnish, and interior designer extraordinaire Martyn Lawrence-Bullard? A very chic LA pad! Check out these photos featured in the December issue of Architectural Digest.

Both Elton John & his partner wanted a place that was very LA, something very ’70′s and reminiscent of the building’s architecture, and as quoted “Boogie Nights.”  Sir Elton wanted a period vibe as a backdrop for his art & color photographs and aside from that – color.  That says the man – who is himself very colorful!  And as Elton’s partner states; “Martyn takes your taste and gives the most gorgeous, sexiest version of it,” says Furnish. “Not having a template style, he’s a true collaborator.” I think that’s a great quote and couldn’t agree more – this space really reflects who the clients are.

Love the Kelly green painted wall and dark floors.

Elton’s colorful office space (and so happy to see he is a Mac user)!  Definitely a chair for the one and only “Rocket Man!”

Orange + Black

Posted By Jill-LA | Oct 31, 2009 | 4 Comments | Category: Color, Design Inspiration

Keeping with the spirit of Halloween, the colors orange and black look fabulous together year round…

2

Orange wallcovering with black trim and black framed pictures.

A balanced room with orange as an accent: the chair seat cushion, the orange side chair, a few orange throw pillows and a mix of black & white drapery panels, an area rug, and a pillow.

4photo

Orange walls, a black lampshade, orange throw pillows, black background on the artwork, orange ottoman, dark wood, and a few black accessories = the perfect mix of orange + black.

5

Pretty in orange and black: orange background color on the wallcovering with a few black accents, table lamp base and bedding.

Modern take on orange and black: orange bedding + black walls with orange accents.

7

Retro glam: orange grasscloth wallcovering and black textured window treatments mixed in with a pair of retro orange covered chairs.

8

Eclectic orange:  artsy orange screen in front of a black marble fireplace.

9

A dark floored entry with orange globe lighting.

These orange + black rooms surely don’t scream Halloween (no pun intended).

When Yellow Met Gray

…or what I should say, is when I met this yellow & gray pillow because I seem to keep running into it!

I was at Target the other day, when I was first introduced to the pillow:

Then I happen to see it again in this room:

And then I happen to run into it again here:

All in a week’s time and coincidentally coming off the heels of my recent post, “Stings Like A Bee” in which I blogged about yellow + black.  I’d say a little less sting but  I quite like it. The paler yellow, even a bit mustard-y, with gray is softer, less intense.  So here in these rooms, yellow meets gray:

So White Now

I am smirking at the title of my own blog post.  All throughout my childhood, I was the little girl who couldn’t pronounce my “r’s” and endured years of speech therapy.  Fortunately, I can now say my “r” words but like the blog post title, I would have sounded like I said “white now” instead of “right now.”  Funny story, I used to live across the street from the actor John Wayne. My mom told me one morning she looked out the front window and said, “Look Jill, there’s Mr. Wayne” and I responded, “No Mr. Rain, Mr. Sunshine!”  Ahhh…how cute I was at the age of 5!  Anyway!  Let’s get white to the subject:  right rooms!
