Jenny Ladutko : In Full Bloom!

In Full Bloom

Say goodbye to your winter doldrums because flowers are popping up everywhere! From fashion to home decor, this design trend is sure to put a spring in your step. Just a touch of these fresh prints will brighten up the dullest day.

Floral Fashion Montage

1. Lucy Lui made heads turn in this elegant, yet whimsical floral gown at this years Golden Globe Awards. 2. No need to wait for spring, floral pants are the new must-have this season. 3. Swap out the plain black pumps and add a fun floral to the wardrobe. 4. A Gilt Rose bracelet looks like a family heirloom passed down for generations 5. Stunning floral ruching at the bottom of Gulianna Ransik’s 2013 Grammy gown

Teal Fabric

One of my new favorite fabrics is from Manuel Canovas’ new spring collection. The vibrant colorway takes a fresh spin on a traditional print. This would be gorgeous for upholstery.

Inspired by flowers and feathers, the large scale, delicacy and textural quality of this wallcovering makes for a stunning backdrop.

Thomas Pheasant

Thomas Pheasant’s new Petal Drum Table for Baker Furniture, was inspired by the carved blossom facade of a 1930’s Art Deco building in Paris.

House Beautiful Wardrobe

Who said flowers were just for women? Check out this men’s wardrobe with walls upholstered in a red and green floral fabric. This is a great look for the classic gentleman.

A gray, blue and white palette is fitting for both men and women.

Mary McDonald

I am loving the Garden of Persia fabric in Mary McDonald’s new collection for Schumacher. The crisp white pattern against the chocolate brown and gray ground cloth is graphic yet sophisticated.

Floral China - you can say it is a %22classic floral%22 that never goes out of style

Floral china is a classic way to incorporate beautiful florals into your home. It is easy to mix and match different patterns for a collected look that is always in style.

Jewel tone floral pillows add life to this scheme. This is also a great example of using the same fabric on a grouping of pillows. Showcasing different parts of the fabric pattern on each pillow makes for the perfect balance of repetition and variation.

Marble Lotus Flower Bowls Marble lotus flower bowls look amazing on a stack of books. Available in the J Banks Retail Store, Designer Shelley Wilkins used these exact bowls in the Palmetto Bluff Style Home!

December+January+2010+Issue

A floral rug with bright happy colors, invites you to let loose and relax.

As you can see, there are a multitude of ways to embrace florals. Whether subtle or bold, traditional or contemporary, the time is now to bring the outside in and let the blooming begin!

Jenny Ladutko : Think Pink!

In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, let’s think pink!  Pink is not just for Barbie’s Malibu home! Using pink in a space can be daunting for many, but it does not have to be so. By manipuating hue, saturation and balance, the color can become complex and create an interior that is warm, whimsical, sophisticated and bold.  Check out these spaces that celebrate pink!

This elegant hall is painted in the ideal shade of coral pink to accentuate the china blue elements. Using the same tone of pink on the walls, upholstery and decor makes the look more refined and livable.

The hot pink leather on these chairs makes a statement. The color and material combination adds a fun contemporary pop.

A bold, sophisticated use of color creates that “wow factor.”

The soft, muted pink in this scheme enhances a calm and relaxed space.

This armoire adds a subtle vintage charm in a pale hue of pink.

If pink on a wall or on large pieces of furniture requires too much of a commitment, try adding pink accents such as pillows and artwork.

Hickory Chair showcased these dining chairs at the October 2012 High Point Market. The inset of pink fabric is a fresh, graphic way to incorporate color while keeping a chic, tailored look.

As shown in the Coastal Living Style Home at Palmetto Bluff, nothing brightens up a room like a pink floral arrangement.

Whether subtle or vibrant, pink can effectively enhance any room. The next time you are looking for some color, try embracing pink and discovering endless possibilities!

Best,
