It’s all about color

Theodores-Designer-Email

Sometimes in design projects we tend to play it safe which is not to say the project is not exiting. However there is that client that wants color and lots of it. Not just in art but also in principal pieces.

This year we had a design project where color was the driving force.
Our client was enamored with deep purple as the starting point for all upholstery in their living room.

We sourced a beautiful Lee Jofa Dark Plum on two Della Robbia Sofas. Two occasional chairs covered in an Osborne & Little striped fabric in Plum, Magenta & Raspberry introduced some other colors into our palette.

The large mirrored cocktail and neutral greige rug balanced the tonality.

The August 2016 issue of Architectural Digest is devoted to Living with Color.
The new Editor in Chief Amy Astley of AD quoted John Ruskin — “The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most”.

Check out Amy’s first issue at AD it’s great.
