Style for the season

What do we all have in common when the weather turns cooler?

We don’t want to get out from our warm beds!
But is your bedroom beginning to look tired?
Now is the time to bring a little cheer to your slumber palace. If your bedroom doesn’t need it, think of your guest room(s).
It doesn’t take a major investment to make some changes to create a wide awake look.

Step 1: I recommend starting with an “anchor piece” like a rug. Choose colors from warm rust, browns and beiges that are easy to find this time of year. 
This tangerine rust area rug creates a cozy and inviting feel to any bedroom.

Step 2:  I recommend neutral sheets and layering your bedding with one or two accent colors. Layers are all about warm, cozy TEXTURE! I’m picturing wool, velvet (traditional and crushed) quilts, or soft nubby pillows. I enjoy the mixture of a variety of size pillows: Euro, Standard/queen/king pillows, square, round or rectangle accent pillows.

Step 3: A touch of metal is something to consider. For a rustic vibe add iron accents like candle holders, ceramic vases, natural wood bowls. Brass brings in a touch of glam and adds a festive mood. You can accomplish that with brass candleholders, trays, table lamps, picture frames, and so forth. For the modern look I suggest adding black accent vases, frames, planters, etc.

Step 4: What is fall without the vibrant colors of leaves?
I would add a vase with some branches to a dresser or if you prefer wreaths, this is the time to get them. There are many options from brown/orange shades to dried green magnolia and they are perfect for seasonal wall décor.

The laid-back life...

Image credit: Colin Poole This summer looks to be like no other as people return to a new normal for the season. With our usual activities limited because of the virus pandemic, our futures uncertain, we are more in need of a peaceful oasis than ever. Because of lingering fears about the virus, our emotional health is vulnerable and our usual restorative choices of being able to travel and recharge are limited. However, as in all things, there are ways to help us achieve our goals. Seeking a more laid-back life? Could you find solace in your back yard? Whether yours is large, a covered port or a small patio for condominium dwellers, there are ways you can transform your environment for summer dreaming and lounging. Outdoor life is healthy and relaxing, so how do you create an oasis of peace?

Spring Home Refresh!

Du interiors Beauty comes in many forms, and there is no better place to celebrate it …and your life…than the place you call home. Especially Spring, because this season is all about renewal and rejuvenation as your eyes drink in the rainbow of colors you see blossoming all around you. Our senses are aroused by escaping from grey, cloudy days. Windows and doors are opened to inhale the sweet smell of Spring days. Here I am offering ideas for you to bring in to your home to welcome one of our favorite seasons. COLOR ME SPRING My favorite Spring palette combines white, camel (chairs below), and soft pink or blush . They are fresh, striking – and unquestionably in season. They also provide some warmth without going too over the top, if pastel colors are not your favorites. Another idea is using all-white to brighten your home for Spring . If you don’t wish to go all-hog, choose sheer, white curtains that welcome i

February is synonymous with Valentine’s Day

But shouldn’t romantic settings be a part of people’s lives all year? February 14 is when the florists and the candy stores and jewelry counters get lots of attention. However, the intimacy of romance is often centered in the bedroom. Is yours an invitation for romance or so neuter it’s uninspiring? Too often for longtime marrieds, romantic bedrooms aren’t high on the list. Maybe they should be? Here are some suggestions for making your bedroom more sensuous …set the scene of snuggling together with loving words. Mood Lighting  Wired-in lighting …in the form of pendants, as seen here, or plug-in -wall lighting …can free up your bedside table. Help your space feel luxurious with artfully placed lighting for maximum tranquility and quality time with the one you love. Think flowers, candles, and charming frames and stay away from working in your bedroom. Pendant lights should not be bright and in your face. Think flexible wall sconces with swing arms and adjustable heights
