Going bold in home design is an admirable 2012 resolution for someone accustomed to neutral interiors, but Cece Fourchy of Mississippi Maven is taking on the challenge! Considering her round-up of color saturated rooms, we say she’s got a bright future ahead of her.
January is all about resolutions. While everyone else is promising themselves to work out more, eat less and spend less, all Iâm thinking about is decorating (are you surprised?). In 2012 Iâm resolving to go bold with dÃ©cor. Donât get me wrongâI love my neutral boudoir, my creamy sofa, my subdued powder room. But this year, Iâm going to throw some serious color in the mix. A turquoise screen? Sure! A purple breakfast nook? Why not?! This monthâs issue of At Home in Arkansas is about âA Fresh Startâ and what better way to freshen things up than a bright coat of paint or a fabulous fabric? I understand it may be hard to envision glowing greens and striking reds on a gloomy January day, so here are some photos to get you inspired. Enjoy!
Katie Ridder knows what Iâm talking about: that green! Those flowers! Iâm absolutely in love with this powder room.
When Lonny featured the home of Ruthie Sommers a few months ago, I couldnât have been happier. So much inspiration for my bold resolution! Her cozy library has saturated red walls and fun colorful furniture.
I canât get enough of this scene from ELLE DÃ©cor. An easy way to give any room a dose of color, the turquoise lacquer screen is a show-stopper.
Leave it to David Hicks to make a pink canopy bed ultra-sophisticated. And those chartreuse chairs? Iâll take two, please.
gives this bathroom a vibrant look with red toile wallpaper and a fresh coat of paint on the tub. The rubber duck is clearly a must.
How could I talk about bold colors in 2012 without mentioning Tangerine Tango? In tune with Pantoneâs color selection, Aerin Lauderâs living room is tres chic with orange walls and a leopard print sofa.
Iâve not always been a huge fan of purple, but this fabulous dining nook from House Beautiful has me convinced. Wouldnât you love to have French pressed coffee and a croissant in here every morning?
What are your decorating resolutions for 2012??
