While IDS 2013 is still a week away, I am already feeling inspired! Today, I want to share with you three color palettes I am currently obsessed with and how we can achieve the look with a little help from HomeSense.

They didn't pick a deep blue diamond as the "Ocean of the Heart" in the movie Titanic for no reason. Though not as "eye catchy" as race car red, the richness and intensity of royal blue demand attention and captivate/connect with the audience at a much deeper level. As illustrated in the inspirational shots, the best way to introduce this decadent color to your space is through accent pieces (i.e. rug, artwork, small size furnishings) and to partner it with lots of white.
From faux bamboo mirror, smooth velvet occasional chair with nailhead details, home accessories and lighting from Ralph Lauren Home, to sleek A-frame table and graphic chevron dhurrie, these gorgeous items from HomeSense are guaranteed to instantly up the luxe factor in your own home.
For a jaw-dropping, bold, and vibrant sensation, nothing beats the color palette of luscious mandarin and mysterious ink. I absolutely love this bedroom thanks to the pops of vibrant orange, and how the brightness of the orange juxtaposes against the quietness of matte black. Of course I am also banana crazy about the white accents such as the wall covering hardware, the mirror, and the Chippendale styled bench.
Surprise!! Of course a delicate yellow and grey color combination gets me every time. I love the softness and coziness of the elegant TV room, and the addition of a daring black + white palette for an incredibly stylish living room.

How do we steal the look? Let's start off with a solid camel back sofa in soft canary yellow, and layer in a dynamite pattern rug in grey and cream for a strong foundation. Then we create interest and give the space its dimension by adding graphic prints via pillows and a couple of ikat cross-legged stools. These flirty dining chairs in grey and yellow cheetah print are also the perfect stunners in an open concept living/dining space.
Hope you enjoy this episode of HomeSense fun! Speaking about fun, I can't wait for the IDS fun to begin next week!
