Inspired by the beautiful interiors below, today’s featured pairing is perfect for those who aren’t afraid of bold color. Sungold yellow is illuminating and cheerful. Purple orchid is confident and alluring. Together they are vivacious.

My friend and San Francisco based interior decorator, Maggie of Maggie Stephens Interiors, recently finished up this beautiful bright living room for one of her clients:
Isn’t it fantastic? I love how she incorporated different high impact pieces (that rug!) without overwhelming the room. The mostly black and white palette makes the space feel very sophisticated and pulled together, while the accessories add color and fun (how cute are those gold pineapples?). See more photos of this living room here.

My friend Irene‘s beautiful SoCal home was featured on Apartment Therapy this week! If you haven’t seen the tour yet, you’re gonna love it. I’ve had the pleasure of stepping foot inside her home and it really is as fun and welcoming as the photos show (possibly even more so!). This girl sure knows how to effectively bring together multiple colors, textures and patterns. She’s one talented lady!
