not sure why, but right now i’m looking to minimalism and texture for inspiration. these pinterest pins reflect my current mood. agnes martin art, rattan, washed oak, trench coats, denim, punches of black and of course touches of blue.
I cant believe it’s been six months since i launched my new furniture collection with henredon. well, we are back in high point, north carolina for spring market. we have taken our collection and re-merchandised it in a new way. it’s super exciting to see our big ideas in furniture and accessories showcased with new fabrics and in new lifestyles.
here’s a look at our launch last fall. if you want to see the new set up follow along with us on instagram and instagram stories. you’ll be seeing a lot of chinoiserie, stripes, and cobalt blue…and one thing’s for certain its still grounded in the spirit of california and it sure is beautiful.
i think you are all realizing i’m into cobalt blue right now. there’s just something about blue, and there’s really something special about cobalt blue. it’s a classic color, but feels really modern, and right now it feels really fresh.
bunny mellon’s upper east side dining room is the perfect example of this. the townhouse was built in 1965 and has all the formal attributes of an 11,000 square foot upper east side home. it’s formal, traditional and refined, however the cross hatch cobalt blue painted dining gives the house a little edge.
the room was originally designed by john fowler. i’m sure at the time the color and the detail was considered quite adventurous. today it’s simply classic.
can’t put my finger on it, but there is just something about cobalt. it’s both classic and cool!
here are some images of bunny mellon’s same blue dining room over the years.
