If you love her style then you’re going to love her new book ‘Dazzling Design’ filled with inspiration, beautiful photography and just about every imaginable way to decorate your home from bold and colorful to calm and soothing.  Amanda Nisbet has captured almost everything in her first design book and is a true believer in bending and breaking the rules.  Her philosophy: ” When rooms are too perfect, they can be a bit lifeless.  My solution is to completely finish a space, then add an element that throws it a bit off balance.”  It’s nice to know that imperfection can be a good thing.  I’m taking a page out of her book and I think you should too!

 

God Bless the mixing of old and new

Order ‘Dazzling Design’ here and tour through her favorite projects including her own apartment in New York City

Her use of color is absolutely bold and stunning!

Fall Color Trends

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Sep 10, 2012 | 1 Comment | Category: Uncategorized

Summer is sadly on its way out but Fall is approaching and with weather like we have today in NYC, I can’t exactly complain.  The sun is shining, there’s a nice breeze and humidity seems to be a thing of the past.  I could have easily just jinxed us, but let’s focus on what is important and that is the Fall color trends of 2012.  Pantone follows these trends with a close eye every year and new season so I thought it would be fun to look at the colors and see how we did in the decorating world.  I selected some rooms that I thought were done tastefully, using these Fall colors.

 

A beautiful lacquered “french roast” living room by Jeffrey Bilhuber from Architectural Digest

A punch of  ”honey gold” to give this room some cheer

“Pink flambe” isn’t just for the girly rooms

Ashley Whittaker uses “tangerine tango” in this latticed sunroom

This “ultramarine green” gives a nice casualness and calming effect

You can’t go wrong with a pop of ” bright chartreuse”

Very timely having just had the Summer 2012 games – “olympian blue”

Thom Felicia knows how to create a sanctuary with “titanium”

The “rhapsody” walls give this otherwise formal room some playfullness

The walls feel very neutral and soothing with this “rose smoke”
