|This colorful setting greeted me in their foyer.|
|Neutrals with pops of color seems to be the way to go.|
|Which do you think came first the art or the pillows and rug? The cocktail table is fantastic.|
take a closer look and you will see a slice of a large tree trunk!
|Gray is seems to be the most popular neutral. The red flowers and gold vase really stand out.|
|Gray and white with this furry rug look nice but add a fuscia pillow see how dramatic it looks.|
|Adding yellow to gray and white warms up this seating area. Great rug too!|
|A dark sectional adds strong contrast. Look how that one seat is done in a different color.|
|Sklar displays many bedroom groups as well. This one has lots of bling.|
|I have never seen a "diamond" studded headboard before.|
|Platform upholstered beds are definitely "in".|
|This beautiful dining group is shown in a what I would call a lacquered driftwood finish|
|Here is a close up.|
|I love this more contemporary version of a classic blue and white color scheme.|
|These chairs remind me of some of the vintage midcentury modern styles I found at J.F. Chen in Los Angeles.|
You can check them out in an earlier blog post that I wrote about J.F. Chen.
|Can't decide on a color? Use them all! This reminds me of an artist's pallet. What do you think?|
|Simple, neutral and elegant.|
|This is a close up of the chandelier in the photo above. It was both whimsical and beautiful.|
|Some of the lighting was like sculpture, or is it sculpture that was turned into lighting?|
|I do not use this word lightly but this chandelier was stunning.|
|It is what I call a WOW feature, a show stopper. Mesmerizing!|
I just want to say "Beam me up, Scotty".
|Chair galleries are a great way to showcase a collection like this.|
|This was one of my favorites.|
|Have you even thought of adding a splash of color with an occasional table?|
|Accessories like this over scaled pear are wonderful.|
|I would call this sculpture rather than an accessory. |
It also has a mate and stands at least six feet tall.
|This glass penquin is part of a collection.|
|There were several entertainment centers on display. |
I like this one because it is simple but functional and creates a focal point.
|Floating glass boxes are a new take on a curio cabinet. |
The boxes offer a way to spotlight each individual piece.
|There is nothing like cobalt blue glass and it is one of the colors trending this year.|
|My favorite accessory was this winged shoe. Isn't it splendid?|
Where do you like to shop for furniture and accessories? Do you like to go to local stores? Do you shop on line? What about consignment shops? It is fun to just "window shop" the furniture stores to get decorating ideas and see the current styles and colors.
