We used the reflecting pool in this wonderful Tiburon home to inform our color choices for accessories in the adjacent living room.

Spring Colors!

Spring has finally sprung in the San Francisco Bay Area and it seems that everyone is hot for fresh, crisp interiors after a record-braking rainy season. One great indicator of color trends in interiors is the colors that you see in fashion.  The bright colors that we see in the current magazines are just as prevalent in the world of interior design.  Did you know that if you look at the colors of men’s fashion you can look ahead to where interior colors are going?  You just have to wait a year or two!

We are seeing clients yearning for aquas along with their taupe wool sofas, lime greens along with their chestnut mohair chairs, and fuschia or sky blue along with their chocolate linen headboards. We have only to look outside at the early wildflowers to see where these colors come from and why people crave color in this season.  This is such a wonderfully easy fix.  A living room, family room or bedroom can be completely transformed by a few bright throw pillows and accessories.  A bathroom needs only a seasonal change of towels and accessories to look so much happier.  The key is to take your clue for color from adjacent spaces so there is a quiet continuity from room to room.
