This year I’ve been finding a real shift in preferences, from subtle, neutral interior design schemes to color palettes that are much bolder and brighter. I think people are looking for some inspiration in their surroundings…
For me, it’s great – I get to experiment with some fabulous color combinations and prints! One of my favorites this season is a deep, rich blue, offset with yellow accents.

This combination works beautifully in every setting, whether bedroom, kitchen or drawing room. I love the concept of pale yellow sofas against deep blue wood paneling, or blue upholstery in a sunny yellow room with printed curtains and a rich yellow-gold carpet. The look is so versatile, it can look equally pretty in both casual and formal living spaces.

Whenever I take on a new interior design project, one of the first steps is usually selecting the fabrics I’m going to use. Lately I’ve been finding myself drawn to lots of colorful blue and yellow prints, especially the new designs by Oscar de la Renta for Lee Jofa. I am so excited by all these energetic brights, so colorful, yet still elegant!

People really respond well to bright, motivating color palettes in their homes, and I love how these fabrics translate into really uplifting interiors. Afraid of committing to a bold palette? Try using these fabrics on a bench or some throw pillows. Even a single piece upholstered in this kind of print looks gorgeously colorful!
