From a recent e-newsletter I subscribed to I was struck by - what else - one of my fave hues - Blue and all the beautiful patterns & prints that American Interior designer Anne Wolf used in one of her client's homes in Houston Texas. Here you can see these gorgeous sumptuous rooms decorating with pattern, strong colors, imaginative paint application and glossy paint, that is both practical and divine - giving the home a young and fresh feel at the same time!
I really love the effect this combination of hues and patterns gives - who says blue & green should never be seen - when you match them to the right tonal value you've got a winner!
Formal Dining Room - Bright green walls in a custom color by Fine Paints of Europe give a formal Houston dining room a fresh, young feeling with major impact. Designer Ann Wolf covered chairs in a rich blue, Malabar's Pasha, because "green and blue is my favorite color combination — one complements the other." A mahogany table inherited from the owner's grandmother was stripped and bleached for a new look. A Tibetan jute rug from Creative Flooring echoes the cool feel of the natural ash ceiling. Light Drizzle chandelier from Ochre. Painting by Claudia Zemborain.
Formal Living Room - Wolf pulled her blue-and-cream living room color palette from the rug by Beauvais Carpets. The velvet on the love seats, Nancy Corzine's Corsica, "is great because it feels already worn-in," she says. Slipper chairs are covered in Hinson's Connelly Chenille. Curtains are Holland & Sherry's Shetland. Room & Board stool.
