Fall Foliage

Fall Foliage

In autumn we invite richer, earthier colors into our homes and with September around the corner, I’ll be setting that tone in my home too.

I follow several wedding blogs, I love the dresses and venues and vignettes, but I especially love to look at the floral arrangements with foliage styled in fresh ways.

What I love about these floral groupings is they’re not the predictable orange and brown. Instead, the designers mix in a pop of pink, apricot, plum, citrus, or lavender to keep the palette fresh. Pale pastels and deep jewel tones also play a part. Varied textures, shapes, hues, and vessels are what keep them interesting. We can all create similar medleys in our own homes during the autumn season with our own smaller scale vignettes and tablescapes.

Below, notice how the soft pastel blooms mixed with earth tone leaves and berry stems create a lovely contrast.

Mix wild grasses, evergreen stems, eucalyptus and oak (or maple) leaves with stock flowers for a stunning combination.

Blend trailing vines and olive branches with softer botanicals, then inject a branch of fruit or a flower in a bold contrasting color.

Herbs are unexpected additions to floral arrangements, pop stems of rosemary or thyme between leaf stems and budding roses to add style and scent.

When you group unexpected foliage together it really wows. This autumn, consider pairing random branches from your yard with herbs and a basic bunch of flowers from the market and you’ll have yourself an eye-catching fall display!

Creamy White Paint Colors

Creamy White Paint Colors

A great question landed in my inbox last week, it was from Dakota, she writes “I was trying to locate what color you have painted the trim and doors in your home?  Your cabinets in the kitchen appear to be more of a creamy white, which I also have in my home.  We are looking to have our entire home repainted, as the current trim is a very pinky beige white, but nothing seems to go with our kitchen cabinets. They are a linen white, but I don’t want to use such a creamy color throughout the house. How did you choose your trim color and is it less of a creamy white than your cabinets?”

Yep, my kitchen and family room cabinets are creamy white and the trim and crown in my home are painted a brighter white. I’ve had the same creamy white cabinets in my kitchen for almost ten years. I haven’t photographed the space in a few years but you can see older pictures of it here. The crown moulding and trim in our house is a brighter white (Kelly Moore Swiss Coffee). I painted my family room cabinets in a creamy white (Benjamin Moore Linen White) several years ago to complement the creamy white cabinets in my adjacent kitchen.

Yes you can blend different white paint colors the most important thing is to make sure the undertones don’t clash. It’s great that you’re giving your trim a refresh. You can choose a white that is brighter for your trim or you can stick with a creamy white paint color for your trim too. I’d avoid anything too stark white, it can come off as cold or clinical. Below are some off whites that I love, the colors on the screen appear a bit more vanilla than they are in real life so I’d encourage you to pick up a few samples and try them out in your home!

Darlene rounded up some decorators’ favorite white paint colors, also don’t miss colour expert Maria Killam’s article on mixing white and cream paint colors. I also shared five tips for choosing the right white paint at My Colortopia two years ago, those guidelines still apply!

Do you have a favorite creamy white paint color? If so share it in the comments!

Sunset Idea House Tour + Takeaways

Sunset Idea House Tour + Takeaways

I was invited to attend a preview of the Sunset Magazine Idea House here in the Bay Area. The home is multilevel on a dramatic slope that takes in views of the Bay and is decorated with a combination of modern and transitional furnishings. The entire home was light and bright with an organic feel due to the wood floors, textural accents, and abundance of green plants. The designer on this project was Lauren Geremia and there were a lot of great takeaways that caught my eye.

1. Yes you can wallpaper the kitchen. This was such a beautiful detail and brilliant idea, the use of the William Morris bird & pomegranate wallpaper behind glass as a backsplash. I love this idea because the paper adds beautiful pattern but is protected from moisture or grease by the glass.

2. Create a larger chandelier with smaller pendants. This was another ingenious installation in the dining room, the use of six small pendants in a row to create a larger chandelier effect.

3. Layer smaller rugs on larger ones. Throughout the home the designer chose large scale neutral rugs and layered them with smaller rugs on top to add pattern and interest. If you have a rug you’d love to use in a room, say a vintage Kilim, but it’s too small for a space, consider buying a larger rug that fits and layering the smaller on top. It works! (Depicted below are the guest room, master bedroom, and office.)

4. Opt for warm neutrals instead of cool. I loved that the sofa and some of the other furnishings in this home were a soft buttery yellow instead of the gray we see so much of. It was a warmer and equally as lovely choice, one that picked up on the dry grasses that exist on the slopes of this Northern California landscape.

5. Use plants to fill spaces and create moments. I loved that every room had a potted plant or tree growing near the light, helping to blur the transition between indoors and out.

Use a large and wide container to create a living centerpiece, it will last longer than flowers!

Each of the multiple decks that looked out the the view had planters in beautiful modern containers which added necessary greenery to a home that doesn’t have a rear yard due to the sloped lot.

Here are a few other takeaways, never fear dark walls in small spaces! In this bathroom the designer used Cosmos by Sarkos wallpaper to create drama, the brass details look so beautiful paired with it.

Who says a media console has to be functional only, why not a beautiful piece of furniture too? I loved this lacquered black console in the family room.

I also admired the consistent flooring throughout, this was a wide plank pale oak flooring, I don’t know the source but I can get it. I thought it was beautiful to use it on all floors, it appears the builder finished the edges of the stairs with mitered trim.

Yay for wood! The kitchen featured stained wood cabinetry and marble countertops, and a little niche created with these open shelves.

The tour concluded with a wine tasting by J Lohr on one of the outdoor decks overlooking downtown Oakland and the San Francisco Bay beyond. The sun popped out just in time to admire the view, so beautiful!

A big thank you to Sunset Magazine for the preview of the Idea House. It opens tomorrow for those in the Bay Area who wish to tour the home in person. Find more details about this home in the Berkeley hills on the Sunset website including details about the floor plan, sponsors, and design team. Most of the furniture and accessories are from ATG Stores, light fixtures by Lamps Plus. Architect: Robert Nebolon; Builder: Landmark Development; Designer: Lauren Geremia.

Casual Dining Chair Favorites

Casual Dining Chair Favorites

Yesterday on the airplane ride home I was feeling rested and inspired. Taking a vacation has that effect 🙂 I came up with a long To Do list of things I want to accomplish around the house this fall. Funny how when you live with so little while traveling you realize you really don’t need so much stuff in your home, just a few favorite functional and pretty pieces to make it feel comfortable and happy.

Some of my rugs and furnishings are a little worn, so I’ll be replacing them with a few new things this season. My dining room chair slipcovers are the perfect example, I have four of the Ballard Designs parsons style chairs in my dining room. They’ve worked so well for our family for years I’m sticking with that style, just replacing the slipcovers with new fabric.

It brought to mind a few favorite styles of dining room chairs that always look chic in a space. Here are five no fail options for casual dining chairs that will always look great!

Parsons

Simple and streamlined, a parsons style dining chair is a classic. Whether slipcovered or upholstered, the look is tailored and timeless.

Wishbone

I also have two wishbone chairs in my home, they live in corners as accents but come in handy when I need extra seating when people visit. Wishbone chairs have a unique look with their smooth rounded back support and rattan seat, they are simple and modern.

Windsor

These all wood classics have long spindled backs, they can be stained or painted. Airy and elongated, they’re always a good looking choice.

Café

Maybe I am under the influence of a recent trip to Paris, but this style has always been a favorite. The woven pattern coupled with the natural legs add oh so much charm to any dining space.

Known for their fretwork backs, these iconic chairs add geometric pattern and exotic flair. Find vintage pieces in natural rattan or more modern version lacquered in vivid hues.

Of course you never need to match all of your dining chairs, a mixed group always looks chic and inviting! What style of chair do you have in your dining room? Do you love the style, or would you trade them in for something different?
