Matthew Williamson’s Mughal Garden livens up these Muted Settings

There’s nothing better than an exotic and inviting wallpaper to add some dramatic style to your space.

In today’s post we’re highlighting a gorgeous minimal interior that uses gray tones and neutrals, but adds excitement with Matthew Williamson ‘Mughal Garden’ wallpaper.

Mughal Garden – Dining room

While it’s quite daring to utilize such a vibrant and colorful wallpaper, notice how this entirely white and neutral dining room setting really pops against the fuchsia, purple, and green detailing.

With the modern light fixture, this cozy cabin-esque living room feels more current. The Mughal Garden print also keeps it fun and interesting.

If pink isn’t necessarily your color, the traditional #1 colorway of Mughal Garden still adds vibrancy. The calm and muted greens and blues of the furniture in this shot keep the room from feeling over whelming with such a expressive wallcovering.

There are four different colorways available on our shop, so you can find the exact palette for your personal tastes.

Happy Designing!

Schumacher’s Summer Collection: Nautilus

In previous articles we’ve gone over blue and white textiles and nautical themes and how you should apply them.

In today’s article we’re going to be discussing and reviewing some of our favorite new prints and recolors of existing patterns from Schumacher’s new Nautilus collection.

This collection is definitely ocean and nautical inspired, but in tasteful modern applications that don’t leave you feeling like you’re in a cheap beach shack.

Great Barrier Reef – 3 New Colors

Schumacher’s coral inspired print ‘Great Barrier Reef’ has three lively new color ways. The original three colors were a bit more muted and neutral, making these primary color ways pop.

The gold and pink coral prints hold true to natural coloration of exotic coral you’d find out in the wild. Thanks to coral’s natural formations, they make for awesome abstract wallcovering or upholstery.

Some of these prints are brand new so they aren’t on our site yet, but we can still help you shop them.

Palmetto Beach Embroidery – Blue

For a simplistic fun Summer print, we heavily gravitated towards the ‘Palmetto Beach Embroidery’ in the blue color way. Something about these cute cartoon depictions of assorted palm trees is very appealing.

All the leafage is highlighted in a deep royal blue that gives the print some unpredictability and fun that any design moment could use for a little spice.

This last print ‘Coralline’ by Schumacher is an ode to the classic nautical stripes and rope motif that we’ve all seen millions of times.

What makes this print a little different is the attention to detail. Each column or stripe in this pattern is made of beautiful detailed swirls that remind us of the ocean.

In between is an intersecting imperfect rope detail that creates some nice natural lines because the formations it creates intersecting are not perfect, but differentiating.

“Royal Fernery” Living Room

This Jungle inspired wall covering is called “Royal Fernery” for obvious reasons. Using different types of fan palms and other luscious plant life, the print portrays a picture perfect rain forest atmosphere that can easily liven up any room. We love the application in this living room shot, paired with forest green painted wood console for a completely fluid look.

“Savuti” Complimenting Gorgeous Jewel Tones

This Cole And Son wallpaper is titled “Savuti”. We love the golden accents and vibrant orange highlights within the plant life of this design. The monkey and bird motifs break up the print and leave for an unforgettable design that draws attention.

The wall covered in “Savuti” really brings out the opulent feeling of these Jewel toned cushions and flooring. It’s no question that this print makes for a bold design moment that’ll help your space stand out with meaning.

“Nautilus” Wall Accented Kitchen

Using turquoise and blue emerald shades, this deep sea inspired print brings depth into this rather minimal and simple kitchen setting. The underwater greenery paired with bright golden angler fish is an interesting take on the sea, that we haven’t seen done before.

Whether you’re looking to encompass the beautiful and lush forest, the animals that swing between the trees, or the exotic fish that rest at the bottom of the deep blue, these Cole And Son wallpapers get the job done in style.

3 Easy Scandinavian Design Trends for 2018

With every new and approaching year, comes new inspiration and design ideas. During 2017 we saw a large amount of ‘Hygge’ or cozy and happy arrangements making their way through living rooms and bedrooms all over the United States.

Currently we’re at a mid-point in the year, its no longer the beginning of the year, but it’s definitely not half way through. What a better time to spice up your existing spaces with these top 3 easy Scandinavian design trends moving on through the rest of 2018.

Number 1: A touch of Blue, Accent Color

Monochromatic style has run rampant throughout the interior design community, and we don’t have a problem with it! However, we’re noticing a strong move back towards color. Touches and accents of blue throughout a mostly monochromatic space provides some mood and drama in a space that could be brightened up.

Here is a couple of our favorite accessories and pieces you can use to add that touch of blue to your personal design moment.

Dorian Box                          Marcy Chair (marine)                         Waring Vase

Easily accent any glass or neutral coffee tables or shelves with accessories bursting with sapphire radiance such as the Dorian Box, to case some of your nick-knacks  or a truly more artistic approach with the ocean ripple inspired Waring Vase. If you’re looking for a seating option, we love the Marcy Chair’s deep blue upholstery as well as silver colored studs encompassing the bottom.

Number 2: Storage as Decor (No longer hidden)

Walk By Closet LADESIGNCONCEPTS
This Walk-By Closet is nothing to try to hide.

For years its been a challenge to find a way to balance your minimal interior design style, with the fact that as humans we typically have a lot of items or goods that we need preserved and held onto. For this reason, we are ecstatic about this Scandinavian trend of highlighting a visually appealing storage piece, rather than trying to shove it under your bed.

We chose some eye-catching and fun pieces within our collection of designer furniture, that can house all that stuff (junk) you just can’t let go of, in a way you’ll want to show off to guests.

Brentwood Accent Etagere     Chest of Drawers          Lyon Biblioteque 

If you’re a collector, you probably have an arrangement of random statues, figures, or any other formations that just have to go somewhere. We’ve found the Brentwood Accent Etagere is a stylish way to display all these goods. Maybe you just have a lot of extra clothes or items you don’t want on display, but need to access frequently. The Grange Chest of Drawers is a marvel for housing a whole lot of items. The way the drawers are arranged on different sides encourages placing this item in a more open space, and the color finished panels make it easy. Lastly, this one is for you book worms out there, when the books you read just happen to have beautiful and endearing covers what better way to store your collection than this rotating Jasper biblioteque? Show off all the different titles you’ve read, while also creating an alluring design moment.

Number 3: “Lagom” Lifestyle Inspired Pieces

The phrase Lagom is a Swede, or Scandinavian term that simply means: a balance in everything. If there’s something us as Americans have been trying to achieve in our lives, it is definitely a Lagom way of life. While the Swedes might have already mastered this, you can easily start your journey to a balanced lifestyle with these responsible furniture purchases.

TED BOERNER Steel Frame Case, MARIAN JAMIESON Beam Chandelier

We chose these two exquisite pieces because they combine the industrial vibes of modern design, with rustic and older ways of life. The Reverie Steel Frame Case featuring photo backed glass slabs depicts an open field of greenery, encompassed into dark steel framing that we love. The Beam Chandelier is a very Lagom take on a traditional candle chandelier, this sleek glass cased antique brass candle lights, atop the macassar ebony strip really bring out the best of traditional candle chandelier lighting, and the advances in sleek and minimal design.

Eye Catching Blue and White Fabric Choices

blue and white textiles

Hello there, and Happy Monday from L.A. Design Concepts! Today we’re going to be discussing some fun and modern patterns designed in one of time’s most tried and true color combinations: blue and white.

Let’s face it, who hasn’t seen a simple blue and white striped ‘nautical’ inspired print? It’s an effective classic done many times before. Since these colors work so well together, we’d like to highlight some great pattern applications that stray away from the ordinary and help your design moment truly stand out from the rest.

To start things off we’re going to break down each of these less traditional blue and white pattern choices starting from top left, and heading downward.

VICTORIA HAGAN - Summer Square - Indigo / Periwinkle
VICTORIA HAGAN – Summer Square – Indigo / Periwinkle

This Victoria Hagan textile, “Summer Square” is great for a couple different reasons. This pattern plays with circle and square geometric hollow shapes differentiating from a darker blue and a softer sky blue and is arranged in a checkerboard style that draws your eye all over it. Due to the hollow shapes, it isn’t too harsh to look at, and the use of negative white space makes the entire pattern more relaxing and fun. It gives off a retro geometric feel that is playful and appealing.
