Good ole' pinterest! Took a look at my files, this morning, and found that I have been saving designs that are rich in color and texture. Velvet, tile and wall paper in earthy greens and golden browns.
The chair rail treatment, under this unique wallpaper, brings out the gold in the leopard. I like the deep, dark paint color.
This one used design details that make the wallpaper sing. The lamp and pitcher add the right texture and color in this vignette. Both wallpaper applications need some reflection of brass or smokey mirror to offset the exotic look.
I am loving the velvet. Cotton or silk, the velvet fabric, highlights the colors making them appear to have a rich gem stone sheen. A small amount of brass and glass are reflective details that make this space shine.
Fabric and fur, dyed with deep pigmentation, come alive, virtually highlighting the printed reliefs of the foliage and bark.
The silk velvet takes this floral print to a higher level of saturation. The trick, I think, is in using a dark background. Making the color just pop right out at you!
Dark background, the fish just glow. Amazing concept to use deep, rich colors on a deep, dark wall.
Green velvet sofas with a charcoal wall and dark wood storage cubes...
...a textured stone wall and dark green foliage.
The added element is metal, the glow of brass or antiqued silver gives the dark, rich coloring a soft edge.
That's what I found in my pinterest files this morning!
