Halloween is just around the corner and we can’t help but get excited. It’s that one time of year we get to fill our houses with eerie décor and play pretend for a whole evening. But as fun as this holiday may be, it has developed quite the reputation for its dark and moody home décor – not to mention all the realistically terrifying costumes.
Halloween can still be just as playful as any holiday…all it needs is a modern spin. Add a pop of white to your typical Halloween color combination of black and orange. Instead of carving a pumpkin, try painting a cool chevron design on it. Give your costume a sleek update by adding a classy, fashionable spin. After all, there’s no rule saying Halloween can’t be hauntingly chic. You don’t have to sacrifice your modern style to get into the Halloween Spirit.
Here are some spooky, but bright inspirations, as well as some pieces from ModShop you can use to embrace the ghostly festivities.
Amethyst, Topaz , Sapphire , Ruby , Emerald , and golds…jewel tones are a timeless classic that we see year after year. This year somehow the colors seem richer and more vibrant, and inspire us to create interiors that are both luxe and chic. This color palette is not for minimalists, it requires layering and an eclectic taste to create the perfect jewel toned space.
There is SO much out there that inspires us …. it’s really hard to filter the number of images needed to fully show how fantastic these rich hues can be. They can be used in so many creative ways. So take your time and view them all and enjoy the full spectrum of this amazing color palette.
Here’s what we found inspiring , and how you could incorporate ModShop by RoomService pieces into your jewel toned dream space…
We’ve seen animal prints appearing year after year when fall approaches… Now it seems to be given a fresh new face by pairing with fun pastel pinks and bright sunny yellow hues. Maybe it’s because I’m South African at heart (or at the very least by birth…), but of all the animal prints out there, for me the leopard is by far the most sophisticated looking… and inspires many…from street style, to high end fashion and trendsetting home decor.
This fun animalistic trend was “spotted” on the runways at fashion week, featured by designers like DKNY, Emilio Pucci, Kate Spade, Tom Ford and Burburry Prorsum.
Here’s what we found inspiring……I’m very sad to say that ModShop by RoomService needs a good dose of this trendy style ourselves… working on some fun fall floor models that fit this fashion forward trend as we speak…..Roar!!
Nothing feels more like summer more than the county fair and cotton candy…we are relieved to see color palettes toning down from last year’s neon madness, to softer pastel and sorbet shades. Today we are loving the fairest of them all: Pastel Pink…
Today’s lighter shades of pink are not just for baby girl’s nurseries, they can be found adorning modern tablescapes, adding a feminine edge to masculine styled shoes, adding a fresh touch to accessories and home decor. Add a wash of baby pink to blond hair, for those who dare! Best paired with other pastel shades, metallic gold, or neutrals like black and white of softer grays.
Here’s what we found inspiring…and how you could add some of this look to your space using ModShop by Room Service pieces. Enjoy!
Feeling somewhat inspired by our recent visit to Hawaii, I wondered how I would design the decor of a tropical home (if we had one!)…first thing that might come to mind is Tommy Bahama or Tiki… NO THANKS! (No offense intended, but we have a much more modern aesthetic…). Inspired by design icons like Dorothy Draper, who’s “Brazilliance” Wallpaper has inspired generations to come…today’s hottest designers like Tory Burch and Nate Berkus use this palm frond wallpaper to create the chicest of spaces.
There is a way to infuse some fresh tropical style into your decor…and this tropical trend is EVERYWHERE…you just have to know where to look and how to do it right, and tastefully. From fashion, fabrics, wallpapers and decor … here’s how we think this should be done…
The image showing the Pink Dining set, with the Palm Frond wallpaper is actually Nicky Hiton’s space, we made all the furniture for her for this room, our Hollywood outdoor collection, view here:
But also shown below in the image gallery…inspired by the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel…images below for your viewing pleasure, these images invoke a feeling of nostalgia and retro Hollywood regency era glamor…
Our favorite accent colors for this fun tropical trend are the fresh pinks and soft blues…take yourself away with this fresh design choice…ENJOY!
