louboutin-inspired paint job

A sliver of paint along the door edge is a great way to add a little pop of  accent color.

It’s like the interior version of a pair of Louboutins.

yellow is happy

Posted in color, decorating, inspiration tagged at 12:42 pm by Brit

Don’t you just think yellow is the happiest color? If colors had personality, yellow would be that overly cheerful-at-all-times (albeit slightly annoying) chick.

Well, it’s super icky outside, so I need a little overly-cheerful-at-all-times pick me up.

This last one, I believe, is from the apartment posted here of Pieces owner, Lee Kleinhelter.

Have a yellow Friday!

breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Though this should be a year-round concern, it’s nice that they officially have one month dedicated to it. To show my support, Design*Champagne style, here are some rooms that are pretty in pink:

vol-inspired decor

Posted in color, inspiration at 7:00 am by Brit

If you know me in real life, you know I’m a football fan. Actually, fanatic is probably a more appropriate term. I follow the University of Tennessee religiously (along with the Tennessee Titans, but that’s for another day).

Football season has officially started with my Vols beatin the crap out of Western Kentucky last week and getting ready for UCLA this afternoon, who beat them in double OT last year in the first game of the season (completely heart-wrenching).

As much as I love my Vols, their color combo is slightly lacking in aesthetic appeal, but it is doable as seen here:

So this is my way of saying “Go Big Orange!”

green with envy

 I’ve never been a fan of using green in an interior space…until now that is. I am starting to crush on the celadon green hue…perhaps even enough to buy this chandelier for my living room.

This Celerie Kemble (name pun not intended) bedroom is darling. She makes the green act as a neutral.

 Suzanne Rheinstein uses green in a lot of her designs…and always so flawlessly.
