I’m always interested in the simplest ways to update my interiors, and one of my favorite ideas is to go with tone-on-tone décor. It’s a process I’ve used over and over again: just choose an existing color—from your room’s finishes, furnishings, even art—then use it to create matching (or sometimes a shade or two off) walls, rugs, and other pieces in the space. The result always feels elegant and modern. Let’s take a look at some of the ways to approach tone-on-tone decorating.– See the whole post at The Interior Collective.
I grew up on the Texas coast, have lived in Los Angeles, and have spent time in beachside homes from Hawaii to Florida. One of my favorite lifestyle-influenced décor styles is what I call “surfer chic.” It’s all about having that relaxed, informal vibe, and it can be achieved in homes far from the water by making some simple choices like those shown here.– See the whole post at The Interior Collective.
One of the best things about building, remodeling, or simply redecorating is being able to rethink lighting options. The choices are typically uninspired—to be kind— especially in older homes. When looking at switching up chandeliers, why not ditch the stuffy old crystal version and consider something new that has as much appeal to men as to women?– See the whole post at The Interior Collective.
I’m really attracted to the modern mixture of elements that create the unique style of the interiors in this Montreal urban retreat. Part of the Sax-1 condos brand, there’s a palpable sense of approachable refinement and smart sophistication that has been accomplished by combining smooth surfaces with layers of texture throughout.
Modern, white, mostly featureless cabinetry on the far side of the kitchen helps the clean and utilitarian space seem to recede from focus. In a beautiful counterpoint to the wall of white, the waterfall treatment of the island countertop married with textures from the island’s wooden facade brings a sense of fine furnishings and welcome warmth to the space.
Playing off the smooth surfaces created by floor-to-ceiling glass walls, modern wood flooring and dark glossy interior walls, the many textiles in the bedroom provide a restful and plush environment for retreat and relaxation. I especially like the rough wood of the bed juxtaposed with the minimalist light fixtures.
If a Montreal retreat is in my future, this is where I’d want to be.
