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.

1- starburst brass mirror, 2 – yellow flower branches, 3 – embroidered pillow, 4 – golden yellow velvet pillow, 5 – original abstract painting, 6 – table lamp, 7 – purple nailhead x-bench, 8 – roll arm sofa, 9 – yellow tufted ottoman, 10 – orchids, 11 – raffia tray
This space exudes a sense of casual elegance that is very inviting and reminds me a bit of the set of one of my favorite movies, Something’s Gotta Give. Achieve a similar fresh Hamptons beach house look with these pieces:
1- rattan dining chair, 2- mani indigo blue pillow, 3- bangalore paisley navy pillow, 4- handwoven jute rug, 5- white bookcase, 6- slipper chair, 7- tala bluemarine pillow, 8- porcelain chinoiserie lamp, 9- reclaimed wood round table
For this month’s Get the Look post I’m featuring a gorgeous living room by Arkansas interior designer Laurie McFarland.
While the flooring, wall color, and main furnishings are all neutral, the room is anything but boring. Vibrant decorative pillows deliver a burst of color and enliven the space. Large mirrors flanking either side of the sofa make a symmetrical statement while giving the illusion of spatial depth. Silk draperies and touches of gold add a sense luxury and glamour.
Get the look with these pieces:
