Designer Tips For Using Color This Summer

Let’s talk about HUE!

Can I just say I’m so happy we are embracing color again?

The “Gray” movement is sticking around for awhile longer, and while it is lovely, we are seeing color everywhere! Just pick up the latest Shelter magazines and look at all the lovely shades of BLUE.

Why blue?

It’s relaxing. It is beneficial to the mind and body by slowing human metabolism and produces a calming effect.

And it shows: CONFIDENCE, FAITH, and TRUTH.

Here is an example of designs from Sandra Kay work where we used a blue silk for the widow covering.

The tall windows are dramatic and we wanted to make sure we did not block the light coming in so we chose a sheer for the top of the panel. Simple and elegant.

Super happy about how it turned out!
