Bold home decor statements in bold and living color are alive and done very well in New Orleans style as illustrated page after unique page in Valorie Hart’s book, House Proud: Unique Home Design/Louisiana. There’s no place quite like New Orleans, and Ms. Hart recognizes and features the interior design and decorating so expressly unique to New Orleans.

Another stunning feature from the pages of Elle Decor further makes the point.  New Orleans based artist Ashley Longshore’s studio is a gallery of bold expression.

Bold color incorporation on a grand scale boldly colors the world of some, where as a gradual color progression better sets the tone for others.

Rather experimenting on a small scale or full-on bold color saturation, working with bold home decor colors may be easier to do in baby steps for the decor timid or undecided.  The shallow end of the bold home decor color pool is a great place to begin.

Subtle boldness is not a firm contradiction of terms, but more a design approach to keep in mind.  This example beautifully illustrates the role color plays in bold home decor accessories servings as both focal point and integral color infusion.

Auctions, Estate Sales and Antiques Treasure Hunting

Auctions, estate sales and antiques treasure hunting expeditions write the latest chapter of my how I spent my summer vacation story.

Auctions, estate sales and antiques

Antiques auctions are my thing.  From start to sold, I love the workings of the antiques auction machine.  Dave the Builder and I have clocked many an hour in old barns, metal buildings, old storefronts and convention halls in hope of acquiring antiques and vintage furniture and accessories up for auction.  When live and in person isn’t in the bid cards, absentee bids are in order.  One of my very favorite auction houses, Gallery Auctions, Inc.  invites absentee bidding, offers quality merchandise and is known for superb customer service.

cutting-boards

In the market for an antique bread or cutting board, I searched the listings with gotta have it success. I placed absentee bids on several boards to cover the spread, and was thrilled to receive the phone call that I won the bid I really, really wanted.  The board is big, aged, perfectly worn and rich in patina and provenance.  Score!

bread-boardAttending the highly anticipated local estate sale recently held less than one block from the Places In The Home abode turned out to be a good decision.  This particular estate sale was a treasure hunting must- one where quality meets quantity.  The bamboo light fixture immediately caught my eye, piqued my interest and held my attention.

foyer-chandelier

First day sale prices can send a wave of sticker shock throughout the antiques dealers, estate sale aficionados and interior design and decorating community.  The word on the tree-lined street signaled high prices ahead.  The price I was comfortable paying did not square with the sellers initial asking price.  I told myself if it is meant to be it will be, and waited for the next day price negotiations.  Holding firm with an offer does not always work out for the best, but in this case it did.

foyer-fixture1

Dave the Builder rewired the fixture, applied two coats of gloss white lacquer spray paint and here we are.  You’ll see this image again in a post I’m working on detailing more decor updates.

dare-day-clubDo we dare take a gamble on basing our vacation destination on past antiques inventory buying successes?  I’m willing to roll the dice if you are, Dave. He said, “make the reservation.”  She said, “win, lose or draw, I’m ready to go.”

The who, when, where and what anticipation of discovery is the common thread between vacation getaways and treasure hunting .

painted-drawer-chest

First stop on the treasure hunting train: Kings Antique Mall.  The gotta have it list for our auctions, estate sales and antiques treasure hunting trips includes requests from clients as well as items for my personal collections.  A hold tag on the two drawer chest dashed my hopes for ownership, but it gave me an idea for a piece already in inventory. Inspiration is everywhere.

I am always fascinated by the nouns of life and how we draw home decor inspiration from them.  Violets remind me of my maternal grandmother, and memories drive the antiques business.

Memories lay the ground work for a collectible fascination to take root.  My frog fascination began in the summer of 1974 when I landed the coveted lead role in the local community theater production of Fairy Frog Superstar.  The play was pure G-rated fun, a take off on Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother.  The frog thing stuck, and I’ve been an avid collector of frog themed objects ever since. Metals are trending with a vengeance for fall 2015, and this brass finished frog object from West Elm is one handsome hopper.

The mixing of traditional, vintage and/or antiques with modern pieces remains on trend and in style.  Contrast is good, visual impact the desired decorating effect, and creating a unique and impressive focal point is the point.  I am inspired by the INSPIRE Q Canali Sleek Modern Accent Chair.

Rental Refresh Upgrades: The Comforts of Home

Continuing the rental refresh upgrades conversation:

Pulling back the reins on major decorative and design improvements to a rental is a financially sound practice if you are not renting to own, making improvements to the property in return for rent credit or taking up residency for the long haul.  Dave the Builder and I completely overhauled, remodeled, refreshed and spiffed up our first home, a darling mid-century cottage lease purchase property.  I loved the bones of the house, but the decor stood still somewhere in the 1950s.  In the beginning we remodeled and refreshed for the comforts of home sake with caution, choosing to update through lighting and color.  I cannot beat the color drum enough- it really is the most bang for your buck way to infuse style into a home.

kitchen_melissa-leeLove, love, love!  Design Sponge

rental-kitchen-color-palette

In the case of our son’s rental home, the kitchen is small but workable in regards to design, function and affordable possibilities.  Presently, the walls are painted red and the cabinets are white laminate with oak trim 1980s #throwbacks.  You know the ones!  Dave the Builder and I scrimped, saved and sacrificed to remodel the kitchen in our first house.  We thought this style of kitchen cabinet was the bee’s knees, and according to the kitchen design magazines and showrooms a whole lot of other people did too!

home-designHouzz

Millennials love retro, and although everything old eventually becomes a new trend again, the dated oak trim will be modified with paint and new cabinet pulls added.   Since replacing the cabinets is cost prohibitive laminate it is!  As I explained to our son the pros of laminate cabinet fronts and countertops, he came around to the practicality of keeping the original cabinets in play. Laminate is a very forgiving surface to work with. The upkeep is minimal, and that works in any kitchen.  No need to throw the baby out with the bath water.

The Comforts of Home

Strategic pops of color and an accessories mix of warm metals with a modern spin will complement the neutral paint palette and introduce that new kitchen look.

Please excuse the poor quality of these images. The combination of bad lighting and a cell phone camera gets you a color distorted photo.  The master bedroom walls are painted with Benjamin Moore’s Museum Piece.  The color in the above image is no where near the true color that is Museum Piece, so to my sources I go for an image that does capture the true color.

Final suggestions for decor accessories and furnishings lean toward DIY chic projects, hacks and thrifted treasures.  His girlfriend scored a great coffee table and reinterpreted the style with paint and embellishments.  Our style council agreed a chic credenza with a Mad Men mid-century interpretation will mix things up like a dry martini.

The treasure hunt is on for one in all Don Draper glory.  A fantastic period piece in great condition that comes with the extra added bonus of a quality finish, impressive lines, scale and focal point presence to die for is out there, and a can of Johnson paste wax and a soft cloth will put the period at the end of the very stylish and on-trend sentence.

modern-barDomino

I will end this post with an observation from my earlier Rental Refresh Upgrades post.  Does it makes sense and cent$ to make updates and improvements to a rental property?  Absolutely!  Focus less on the fact your new residence is a rental and more on the fact that your new residence is where you call home.  All things house that make a home come together to make the out of your own pocket rental refresh upgrades worth it in the name of the comforts of home, convenience and personal style.

Currently Catching My Eye

Sourcing and sightings of home decor accents is all in a day’s work and I love it! When I started Places In The Home my objective was simple: to design an all things house that make a home show and tell, a sharing collective of knowledge and experience of interior decorating, home furnishings, decorative accents, home decor where to finds and gotta have it lists.  Four years later, I continue to be excited and inspired to show and tell you about items currently catching my eye.

The Riviera stool from Serena and Lily is currently catching my eye in a big way. Great choice for a statement piece desk chair.

chest-brass-corner-brace-hardwareGlitter Guide

D I Why yes, I can do this!   Three or four drawer chests are just a thrift store, flea market or curbside boutique visit away.  For the retail fortunate, check out your nearest IKEA and the Rast 3 drawer chest.  At $34.99 + tax  it’s a bargain. For the rest of us, I say add this baby into your online shopping cart and justify the shipping cost with my logic.  I couldn’t drive to Houston (closet IKEA) for $10 (the shipping cost). Makes cent$.  Decorative hardware dresses the look, and a couple of coats of black paint adds the essential touch of drama.

Planting the Seeds of Change: A Decorating 180

Inspiration is everywhere made good on its promise this Mother’s Day.  Dave the Builder heard the something out of the ordinary call, gifting me this most unique and exquisite Italian heather plant for Mother’s Day.  This visually striking plant in all its classic pink and green color combination glory is summer planter poised and ready.  Giving thought to what type of planter befits this beauty, the usual suspects in my traditional rotation failed to impress.  It appears a decorating style metamorphosis is taking place, a planting the seeds of change decorating 180.

Italian-heather

 “In gardening, architecture, landscape design and interior design the principles are interchangeable – or, at the very least, highly adaptable.”
  — Charlotte Moss

 

The preferred decorating style of choice at Places In The Home is traditional with a twist, but styles and tastes evolve as they should, and mine are no exception.  If only on an experimental basis for the fresh and updated look of it, try introducing one or two accents, colors or patterns from a different decorating style to the space.  A decorating 180 turns up the volume just enough to keep things visually interesting.

boxwoods

I paid a visit to the Hopefully Classic warehouse (storage unit) a couple of weekends ago to do a bit of shopping.   Shopping from within is a tremendous concept.  I become reacquainted with items in the inventory, an afternoon of hunting and digging for treasure qualifies as an excellent workout and the prices can’t be beat.  I pulled a set of decorative concrete planters (one of which is shown in the above image) to pair with two small boxwood plants I bought marked down at Lowe’s.  The picture does not do the planter justice, and as stunning as these planters are, do these lovelies qualify as my personal decorating 180?

garden-basketOrlandi Statuary Round Basket Planter

Hold the phone!  This Orlandi Statuary basket planter may be all the style sashay towards a decorating 180 needed to calm the winds of change. The style deviation is subtle enough not to overwhelm the process while staying true to the traditional foundation. Throw the eye a curve ball every now and then and hit a style home run.

Love your style!
