If you are looking for a bedroom concept that will add some spice to your life, look no further than to the element of fire. Often times people will shy away from red in a bedroom since red is a strong and dominant color palette. However, red is also the color love and the color most associated with Valentine’s Day. The gorgeous bedding set in this design is from one of my favorite luxury bedding lines and pairs the red with navy and for a rich, royal and romantic feel. By painting the walls in a similar navy it creates a cocoon effect for a great night’s sleep.

I love the artwork is flirty and mysterious, evokes the mood of fire and has the red rose signifying love in the piece. Make this room really hot by adding this dramatic red chandelier, and what better way to play off of the fire element than with actual fire? These wall fireplaces can easily be added to any space without the need for any construction.

We thought it would be especially fitting to post this design this week since it also has a bit of an Americana feel. We wish you a very happy Fourth of July with family and friends. God Bless America!

Inspired by the Elements: Wind

When I think of the element of wind, two different things come to mind. Wind is not as visually tangible as some of the other elements and so is rather hard to pin down. Wind, to me, is more of a feeling than anything else. Most people don't realize that with interior design our ultimate goal is create a certain mood in every space. Wind can be chaotic like a hurricane, or a gentle and peaceful breeze felt while standing on a snowy mountain top on a sunny day. This bedroom is inspired by the latter, utilizing an icy metallic color palette that is muted, fairly monochromatic, and sparkles like snow on a sunny day.

I love the way the elements of this design play together and create the illusion of different types of movement. The table lamp reminds me of the blowing wind, and the wall mirror makes me think of a soothing windmill spinning in the breeze. Artwork allows for a more literal translation of the inspiration, and this cool-toned tree blowing in the wind fits the mood perfectly.
