Summer Sunshine

So yesterday was officially the first day of summer, although I must say here in Florida it’s been feeling like summer for awhile now. We recently blogged on Summer Blues but now since it’s official, it’s time for some sunshine! I always love accents of a bold color in a room. It adds an element of surprise. But you want to make sure when adding the pops of color that there is a method to the madness. Make sure your backdrop is balanced in proportion, texture and color variation. Don’t hesitate to use bold patterns but make sure they compliment each other.

Here are just few snippets of some of my favorite cheerful interiors that have a sophisticated elegance with bright accents of yellow. See how the yellow dances off of the cool grays and makes a beautiful contrast with the classic look of black and white. Whatever you choose to pair it with, just a little bit of this vibrant hue goes a long way.

Check out some products you find at Studio Six Eleven as well as our Etsy shop Quondam We have many lines of designer furniture , lighting , one of a kind vintage re-styled accessories and lots of bright ideas for your nest. Give us a shout this summer to help
