Color Punch Part Six: Interior Landscapes

It's that time of year again- time to switch out the textiles, rearrange some furniture, and hang a few new pieces of art. Now, its not fall yet, so no need to break out the heavier textiles. But it's the twilight of summer and I always find myself wanting one last burst of bright textured  color to recreate each interior landscape. I am a fan of slip-covers on couches. And they are a great way to change the feel of a space. I tend to go with a white or light colored slip-cover in the summer so I can punch up the blankets and pillows with pinks, aquas, greens, and oranges. Not a slip-cover fan? Then this multicolored lacquered steel chaise lounge is your alternative. For a pillow + rug refresh leif shop & the PS2014 collection from ikea offer great finds. Currently love the desert ocean & cabo colormix woven pillows and the flat woven PS rug with geometric detail. Another way to add color into your space and truly make an interior landscape is to add plants. Love the found image of plants in a dinning space from the portfolio of photographer Claudio Tajoli. Livens up the already colorful space.

Things For Your Wall Part Three: It's Time for a Change

Alright, we have all heard enough on the topic of summer morphing into fall. But, along those lines, it is time to add some art, animal antlers, photographs, etc. to those walls that reflects the warmth of cozy fall weather, and the crazy-awesome imminent color change across our landscapes. Now, I love grouping various styles of framed images and art together, but I tend to gravitate more towards having one bright and colorful piece to make an all white room pop with moments of color. All images shown explore this idea in their own way. Now, go put something new and vibrant up on those walls. It is time for a change.
