Color Inspiration: Emerald Green

We're obsessed with rich green tones this winter! This is evidenced by one of our favorite new Pinterest boards that is all about green in interiors and fashion. Click here to follow our new Pinterest account and our Hunter Green board.

This winter we came across a new Schumacher wall covering in just the right shade of green and jumped at the chance to use it for our space in the first Artist + Designer Art and Antiques Redux.

The event was presented by the Methodist Hospital Task Core and whether it was working with the amazing organizers, volunteers and visitors or putting the final touches on a space we loved -- it couldn't have been better.

We designed the space using a luxurious emerald green wall covering, luxe upholstered pieces, cheetah print accents, a natural jute area rug and a classic chest of drawers. We love how it turned out!

The green walls are covered in Schumacher's brand new Fabulous Faux Komodo wall covering. The green chairs are upholstered in a beautiful green velvet from our friends at Mayer Fabric. Thank you to the amazing vendors who helped us bring this space together!

We used an animal print fabric for pillows and a recovered seat on our ceylon leather wrapped bamboo chair, pictured above. A bouquet of beautiful white and pink peonies and purple dahlias sat on the chest for an added pop of color.

Annie wore her Tory Burch flats in cheetah print to match our Art & Antiques Redux launch party soiree! 

Do you love bold green hues as much as we do? We'd love to know what color you're loving this winter. If you have a current color obsession take a moment to share it with us in the comments below.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Sneak Peek: Recent Florida Project

We're thinking warm thoughts this afternoon! It's been a chilly first week of 2015 and we're wishing we were at the beach rather than bundled up. Below are some sneak peek details from a recent Florida project. It's full of clean whites and pastel hues. We love how it turned out!

Shades of blue, creams and natural textures are around every corner in this space. The newly revamped condo was accessorized with white coral, coffee table books, light blue containers and bright pillows.

We loved working on this project and wish we were enjoying a Florida sunset at this very moment! 

Visit our favorite island retail project on Captiva Island. We are always inspired by Fashion. 
Shop online at Chloe's to get to the Beach this weekend.

Tips For Creating A Thanksgiving Tablescape

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already upon us! It seems like just yesterday we were getting excited for summer and gearing up for our trip to High Point Market. We're working on a lot of exciting design projects lately and the days have just flown by. With High Point in mind, I thought I'd share photos of the tablescape we created for Julie's space in the Stanford Furniture showroom for a little Thanksgiving table inspiration. 

Our inspiration came from our rustic space in the new showroom, the rich colors and textures that surrounded the dining table, and Julie's new Americana-inspired collection. Julie launched a beautiful new dining table as well as a new banquette with a warm leather seat this season, which was accented with blue and green velvet and brown toile pillows.

With all of these elements in mind, we decided that a sophisticated yet rustic table top design was in order!

Here's how everything came together:
  • We visited a local antique store and came across a beautiful set of antique silverware, delicate ivory napkins, classic blue and white dishes, and two large coffee containers. 
  • From there we completed the look by incorporating a few more casual elements for a collected look. These included the blue mason jars to hold flowers, six glass goblets, a small stack of vintage books and rustic antler containers. 
We think the end result felt woodsy but still refined and fit the space perfectly. What item on the table catches your eye first? We love the oversized coffee containers!

If you're hosting this year, here are a few tips for decorating your Thanksgiving table:

  • Mix and match old and new pieces 
  • Incorporate varying textures
  • Alternate heights in the centerpiece
    • Remember to that guests should be able to see across the table
  • Find a unique, eye-catching place for your napkin. 
  • Add chargers beneath your plates for a more complete look
  • Have fun with flowers! We assembled the small bouquets ourselves 
  • Add a pop of color. For us the blue jars and flowers were the jolt the table needed.
  • Add personal elements to make it your own
    • A vintage horseshoe (on top of the books in the foreground) was a nod to Julie's signature equestrian style 

Do Tell: How are you decorating your table this season? We'd love to hear your plans. Feel free to share them with us in the comment section or connect with us online via social media.

From all of us at JBB Design, we wish you a very happy and safe Thanksgiving!
