Red is one of those colors that people always feel strongly about—you either love it or feel like you’d never use it in your interior décor. There’s very little middle ground, and, while I like to think of myself as an individual who can referee just about any conflict to a positive outcome, I don’t think this is an issue that can be easily resolved. However, I can give you some ideas that will allow anyone—no matter your current feelings about the color red—to find a way to incorporate it into your home.– See the whole post at The Interior Collective.
I’ve always been a big fan of incorporating color into interior design. I’ve also always been very opinionated about what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to color—at least for my particular décor aesthetic. For example, I have a greater appreciation for deep, rich color than I do for pastels,. Similarly, the trendy kitchen colors of my youth, like harvest gold and avocado green, tend to make my stomach turn. Imagine my surprise when finding so much to like about the plethora of colorful ovens starting to show up in kitchens. By and large, they look good! Are you ready to embrace colorful ovens with me?– See the whole post at The Interior Collective.
I’ve drunk the Kool-Aid. I’m a big big fan of Chicago-based interior designer Lukas Machnik. From his work on the television show, American Dream Builders — shown in the first four photos above, to his own furniture designs in the last photo, his work shows all the hallmarks of the kind of design I love.
