Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year: Marsala

Pantone's 2015 Color of the Year: Marsala

Every year color trend forecaster, Pantone Color Institute, predicts a color of the year. This year, the color was decided as Marsala, or Pantone color 18-1438, from the earthy wine color it is named after. From the Pantone website, “this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while it’s grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.” Can you feel that earthiness yet sophistication? I find that it’s a perfect color for creating warmth and moodiness both in fashion and in spatial design. Here are some images to inspire you this year.

Pastels for Your Home and Closet


If you asked me how I felt about pastels five years ago, I would have shuddered at the thought. But now, my outlook is the complete opposite—I can’t get enough of them! So, what inspired the change? The modern ways they are being used! The pastels we knew growing up – ‘80s floral and wicker furniture – were stale and passé. Now, they are used in subtle ways that bring a refreshing and updated feel to the look. The spring trend is on point for both fashion and the home. Let’s see how they can be used successfully.

They also display a certain formality in style—without being stuffy or uptight. Some actually go so far as to use some tried and true tropes of men’s fashion to add to that tailored look. If that’s an idea that appeals to you, keep reading; in this post I’m looking at menswear inspiration for your décor.

6 New Ways to Reinvent Grandma’s Needlepoint and Cross-stitch

6 New Ways to Reinvent Grandma’s Needlepoint and Cross-stitch on the Interior Collective 1

When I was in grad school I interned for Jonathan Adler, the celebrated king of happy chic. I remember being humored by his fascination with needlepoint everything—calling it “grandma chic.” I loved the idea of taking a dated fad and making it new. Once again, needlepoint and all types of stitching are back en vogue and it is now being applied everywhere—from shoes to chairs to dresses. It’s a bit nostalgic, whimsical, and awe-inspiring. Here are some of my favorite ways to use it.

4 Interior Spaces Inspired by the Ballet

4 Interior Spaces Inspired by the Ballet on the Interior Collective 1

Ballet is one of those art forms that leave me breathless and awe-struck. The way the dancers beautifully manipulate their bodies with such grace and control, the way the costumes move with each leap, the way the sets capture the scene. All of these visual elements create a feast for the eyes and a sense of wonderment that you don’t often get in an everyday space. However, I believe every space can have that sense of magic—a space so beautiful it takes your breath away. In that spirit, I’ve paired up interiors inspired by ballet to serve as a beacon of beauty, and possibly serve as inspiration for your home renovation or a simple change of décor.
