All of the sudden winter has turned to summer and I am CRAVING adding some color to my house.  Like, desperate for it.  I was all happy with my monochromatic palette and for some reason I feel the need to add bold pops of blue or coral or pink to it. I still would keep the basics neutral, advice I give any client who changes their mind as often as I do, but I think I’ll get busy changing things up in my living room (finally) and guest room.  And this month’s House Beautiful only encouraged me further with it’s great collection of homes that use bold color in genius ways.

The gorgeous New Orleans home of Jane Scott Hodges, owner of Leontine Linens (the dream bedding of everyone) is a mix of classic traditional style and modern punches of color.



And check out her amazing chartreuse skirt! Love.


Krista Ewart’s home in Los Angeles is a laid back but polished space with lots of bold color choices. Loving those pink chairs!




And ANOTHER amazing chartreuse skirt, just tea length!!! Me thinks this may be a spring trend. :)


Here are some fun brightly colored items and new things I’ve found that are inspiring me to add some more color to my home!
