Art as Inspiration

“I’ve always loved blue and white. It doesn’t matter what year, what age, where you are. Blue and white has a beauty. It makes you dream.” ~Ralph Lauren.

Color speaks as it can soothed calm or create tension and energy. A favorite starting point in designing rooms is art. A beloved painting, photograph or sculpture is a great way to provide inspiration for your room design. The colors from your art set the mood and message you want to convey. Complementary color schemes (pairing color on the opposite side of the color wheel) like blue and orange (coppery wood & leather) are the basis for this room. We live in blue jeans white T’s and copper leather jackets. That color palette translates beautifully from fashion to interior design. When blue, calm and soothing, and white, clean and simple, are combined we get the ultimate, serene, tranquil space with just touch of copper that provides the right amount of energy.
