These are the images that have caught my eye this morning. If there’s a common thread here, I’d call it relaxed sophistication. Let me know if any of these rooms capture you too.

Barcelona Chairs

I'm a big fan of these Barcelona Chairs. | japanesetrash.com

Of course I’m a huge fan of these Barcelona Chairs. The caramel colored leather is an awesome choice.

Kitchen Glimpse

A glimpse of dine-in kitchen. | japanesetrash.com

Fun textures and great colors in this dine-in kitchen; I applaud the inclusion of contrasting pieces to liven up the space.

Wood Wrap

Interesting wall treatment here. | japanesetrash.com

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a wall done this way–these are large wooden panels that have been attached, but I could imagine it done with wallpaper.

Colorful Texture

A ton of great texture in this corner. | japanesetrash.com

This is just the perfect little corner.

Informal Gallery Wall

Terrific informal gallery wall. | japanesetrash.com

An artistic office lounge space.

Interior design blogs — including this one — are filled with black and white rooms and with way more than 50 shades of grey, so today I thought I’d showcase some spaces that use color. These rooms were chosen simply because they feature color in some way and they all appealed to me. Are you using color in your own home? Let me know what your thoughts are on color in interior design.

Red

Lots of terrific reds going on here. | japanesetrash.com

The various reds here, from the interesting wall pattern to the sculpture and hangings, create a ton of energy in an otherwise traditional space. What about that door?!

Orange

Orange bedroom designed by Robert & Cortney Novogratz. | japanesetrash.com

Robert and Cortney Novogratz are favorite designers for me, and this orange bedroom in their New England home makes me smile. BTW, have you seen their new website?

Yellow

A completely groovalicious space. | japanesetrash.com

Love the vibe of this space, which goes from nice to groovalicious because of that yellow fauxdenza. And the awesome graphic prints!

Green

A handsome and serene living room. | japanesetrash.com

Using color doesn’t always equate to the over used “pop of color” dictum; this green living room is handsome and serene. Terrific accessories here, too.

Blue

Another serene space with deep blue walls. | japanesetrash.com

This deep blue color adds a layer of mystery to this otherwise relaxed space. I’m digging all the great textures here.
