Design, Eat, Travel….Repeat!

Red, tan and cream- causual, cottage style



Hello, zealots! Well, I have finally wrapped up my big ass project at the beach (I saw the water for about 5 minutes one night on the way to dinner…such is the glamorous life of a designer) and let me say it was exhausting, but very rewarding. The good news is that I have lots of pictures from the seven models there to share with you. This first model was geared towards casual comfort; soft neutral tones are offset by bold reds. If you are having a hard time pulling things together at your house try this simple technique. Develop your neutral palette, wether that be warm tones (tan, beige and creamy whites) or cool tones (such as gray, taupe and whites) and add your favorite color as an accent. Repeat this concept throughout your home for an all over cohesive look. Remember to vary your materials to give your rooms some texture so they don’t look too flat. You will notice I added a lot of fun country details to this model, I don’t get much of a chance to indulge this particular vernacular, so I really had fun getting to express my country side.   Enjoy!!

Red, tan and cream family room.

The use of neutrals and texture help to balance the pops of red in fabrics and accessories.

An extra long antiqued pine sideboard anchors one side of the open concept family room.

Red, tan and cream dining room

Woven host and hostess chairs on either end of the table bring the texture up to eye level. Apple clip board art is from Park Hill.

Red, tan and cream bedroom

The owners bedroom has a king metal bed and layered quilts. The night stands do not match, but are similar in scale for balance.

    Love Love Love it—what do you think if I take the black out of my dining room and added the tan/cream?

    Sure, you could probably keep the black, maybe just cut it back a bit.

    I love your project…quick question….where did you get the extra long sideboard? I am looking for something similar and haven’t been able to find anything.
