Get the look of this pink dining room by mixing blue and white chinoiserie pieces with vibrant pink and magenta

Color is our favorite cure for the winter blues, and pink is one of our favorite colors of the season. Chairs, pillows, even drapery are fun ways to bring this vibrant hue into your space, but in this dining room, we went full tilt with a hot pink rug. Our new Elle Rug has a traditional Persian pattern, but in a bold palette. Taking the navy and light blue from the rug, we designed this entire space to feel light, bright, and above all, playful.

On a gorgeous Spring day, there’s nothing more luxurious than enjoying the sunshine and fresh air, but before you can do that, you’ve got to get your outdoor room in order. We think of decorating outdoor rooms like you would your living room — comfortable seating, a tight grouping of furniture, fluffy pillows, and enough side tables for guests to put down a drink.

Our Bailey Pendants feature hand painted rattan with stripes

When the weather warms and we start welcoming Spring into our homes, it’s the perfect time to think about making some small seasonal changes to your home. This year, we’ve been really craving those details that remind us of the tropics — bright colors, leaf prints, and woven textures. We loved weaving pieces with raffia and rattan accents into the rooms of our 2017 catalog. Just one piece can give a room a touch of that island feel, without being too kitschy!

Get the look of the vibrant living room grounded in neutrals

Spring is a magical time when nature starts to bloom with color, so it’s no surprise that for Spring 2017, we’re letting color wake up our neutral rooms. We took the lead from our Opulence Art which is grounded in charcoal gray and upholstered a pair of our new Kathryn Sofas in a charcoal velvet. Then, we let the art and accessories take center stage by using bold oranges and yellows.
