Drab or Fab: Driftwood

0

The design industry has seen a rise in utilizing sustainable, natural and organics products.  Driftwood has taken notice as a material that is easy and naturally beautiful to repurpose or up-cycle.  Furnishing and accessories that incorporate driftwood give an aged and unfinished look that I find very appealing and distinct.  I like to think that ...

Drab or Fab: Animal Print

0

Animal prints are becoming very popular again and I am loving the bold ways designers are using them in their interiors. I think we can all admit that animal print decor can be a tacky disaster, but I think it can also be fabulous when implemented just right.  Here are several interiors that I think ...

Drab or Fab: Menswear

0

We are seeing more menswear inspired fabrics, finishes, and accessories being incorporated into everyday design.  I like the refined and tailored style that it gives to a room, and I find it growing on me.  Houndstooth, plaid, herringbone, pin stripes…I think I could definitely incorporate a few of these patterns into my home.  What do ...

Drab or Fab: Mirror TV

0

Alright, so we all know that trying to negotiate technology versus stylish decor with your significant other may be the ultimate battle.  They want the 65” HD LCD top-of-the-line television with surround sound and you want to create a beautifully designed focal point in your living room.  What do you do?  Well, I came across ...

Drab or Fab?: Navy Blue Cabinets

0

When I think of Navy I think military, dapper suits, royalty, and a night sky. Straight to cabinet color is not where my mind wonders to. You get high visual impact without having to go all the way to black. I wore a navy bridesmaid dress last year and it felt so good to be ...

Drab or Fab: Accent in Gold

Lately, I have really found myself becoming a fan of gold.  Gold is classic, but I love the way it is being modernized with the latest design trends.  Prints and fabrics, accessories, and furniture shine with gold tones that are inspiring!  I’m not sure if gold ever went out of style, but it currently seems ...

Drab or Fab: Poufs

0

Are poufs drab or fab? I promise I am not referring to Snookies hairstyle. I am actually referring to an upholstered ottoman also known as a pouf. I have been seeing them popping up more and more in design magazines and catalogs in all different styles from knit to leather. So, what do you think ...

Drab or Fab: Pallet Furniture

0

I like the idea of reusing and “upcycling” products into something useful and stylish.  How about reusing a pallet for a coffee table, or even a headboard?  The recycled pallet definitely lends itself to a unique urban and rustic look (which I seem to be drawn to), and I’ve been noticing it in more design ...

Drab or Fab: Tone on Tone

0

What do you think of a space that is all one color or different shades of the same color? I could see how it might not be someone’s favorite. Some might even think it could be kind of boring. But, personally I think its fab. If you use different shades of the same color and ...

Drab or Fab: Dark Grout

0

I have been seeing more and more people using dark grout with light tile. The grout is almost being used as an accent. I can see the point of dark grout; it definitely hides dirt and when done subtly like using a light grey with a white tile can be quite interesting. But the idea ...
