Gregory’s brilliant color themes make a bold statement in any room. This beautiful bedroom uses blue and white hues throughout for a soft and sophisticated look, while bright green creates a contemporary aesthetic in this work space.

We love how prints bring this otherwise neutral living room to life! Juxtaposing a classic striped rug and dazzling geometric patterned furniture, Gregory infuses this space with modern character.

Adding colorful accents to a neutral palette can offer the same stylish effect as a full room makeover. Touches of pink say it all in these white spaces; fuchsia candles and a deep pink settee offer a hint of glam, while soft pink throw pillows and floral wallpaper offer fresh, inviting accents.

Gregory often combines elements of different time periods to give spaces a unique personality. Traditional brass hurricanes delightfully complement this dining room banquette’s contemporary gold detailing, while a retro yellow sofa provides an unexpected juxtaposition to the living room’s classic desk and elegant drapery.

Graphic wallpaper can go one of two ways: create a fantastic impact, or be entirely too overwhelming. It all depends on the execution of the entire space. In this bedroom, Gregory succeeded in making the wallpaper a fantastic focal point by furnishing the gorgeous space with soft, neutral colors that blend instead of compete. The result: an irresistible space as cozy as it is effortlessly sophisticated.

Summer Color Inspiration: Blue + Pink

Pink and Blue Dining Room @LaylaGrayce
Designed by: Andrew Howard

The perfect balance of masculine and feminine, blue and pink is a current summer color crush of ours! This beautifully contemporary combination breathes life and energy into a home. We can’t get enough of these bold and exciting hues, and we wanted to share a few of our favorite pink and blue living and dining room images with you.

Pretty and girly, the two light pink tufted chairs in this modern living room really make us swoon. Grounded by white walls and navy blue throw pillows and window coverings, the chairs add life to the space without being over-the-top.

Just a few rich pink and blue accents take neutral spaces and infuse them with pizazz. A white living room is instantly brightened by pink peonies and navy blue throw pillows, while ornate pink wallpaper and a blue upholstered chair add instant glam to a traditional dining room.

Nothing says summer like a bright and captivating splash of orange and aqua blue color. This wonderfully contemporary (and slightly daring!) combination creates instant cheer in any room of your home. To inspire your inner interior designer, we browsed some of our favorite decorating sites and collected a few images of spaces that incorporate these vibrant colors.

Combining orange and aqua allows you to exude decorating confidence! In a bedroom, it’s important to be aware of striking the balance between energizing and soothing color. This room’s design achieves this by pairing an electric orange and blue blanket with simple white bedding and cool blue and white walls.

To up its drama, this globally-inspired bedroom carefully integrates orange and aqua bedding, lighting and furniture. Against the backdrop of a powerful chocolate brown wall, an aqua blue headboard, orange chair and orange table lamps create a space that’s full of life and energy.

Designers We Love: Katie Ridder

Lauded in Elle Decor and House Beautiful, New York City interior designer Katie Ridder’s style has captured our attention. She integrates a playful mix of antique and modern furniture, beautifully balancing comfort and sophistication. To give you a glimpse into her design work (and ideas for your own home!), we’ve rounded up images of our favorite rooms from her diverse portfolio.

Known for her dramatic accents, Ridder dressed this game room and guest room with eye-catching patterned wallpaper. The results are imaginative, warm spaces rich in texture.

Not afraid of a lively color palette, Ridder introduces pops of fresh purple into this neutral living room. Installing the curtain rods above the natural height of the windows not only makes the ceilings feel taller, but also helps to frame the incredible view.

Although we love Ridder’s use of rich fabrics and antiques, we’re also smitten by the way she casually pulls the outside in through relaxed nautical stripes, bright blue botanicals and pops of modern orange color in these seaside-inspired spaces.

By seamlessly blending vintage French-inspired furnishings with lively, unexpected accents, Ridder manages to create spaces that are equally elegant, eclectic and inviting. White coral decorations, geometric mirrors and modern industrial bookcases provide the perfect amount of contemporary intrigue.

Designers We Love: Grant K. Gibson

Grant K. Gibson’s style was lauded by Elle Decor as “always eclectic, livable and easy on the eyes,” and we couldn’t agree more. Gibson’s core design philosophy is that a home should reflect the personality of those who inhabit it. Considering how much we love his design portfolio, we wouldn’t mind being friends with his clients!

A well-edited kitchen utilizes decor as well as organic materials, fresh flowers and lemons to create pops of yellow that tie the space together without feeling overly decorated.

Key neutral pieces like the chair and rug seen here are a perfect example of the classic design for which Gibson is known.

One of Gibson’s signature talents is using traditional design elements (a regal portrait, secretary, luxe tablecloth) in a way that still feels inviting and relaxed. Below, the color of the year, emerald, makes a strong appearance as the focal point of an eclectic dining room, where Gibson created a unique layered look using colorful accessories.

Although we love his neutral spaces, we’re equally as impressed with Gibson’s ability to create a compelling color-centric space. Here, he mixes several shades of pink resulting in an unusually sophisticated look with depth.

Gibson himself is an avid chef, so we aren’t surprised that his kitchens receive so much attention. Here, he follows his trend of bringing the outside in with an abundance of fresh florals.

Designers We Love: Phoebe Howard

Atlanta-based designer Phoebe Howard’s aesthetic is quintessentially Southern, comfortable, timeless and elegant. Howard is known for her fresh take on traditional style, which is evident in the many of her projects. These are a few of our favorites.

One thing that remains consistent throughout Howard’s work is her masterful use of neutral color palettes. Her work also illustrates the power of symmetry, as seen in this bedroom, which creates a sense of order and formality.

Howard’s expertise extends to choosing and placing accessories. On a coffee table, Howard opts for a well-edited selection of just three glass jugs, a stack of coffee table books and bit of greenery for freshness. Well placed lamps, chandeliers and sconces add plenty of light options throughout her interiors.

A bedroom does double duty as a seating area thanks to a cleverly placed sofa, coffee table and two upholstered chairs at the foot of the bed.

Plush seating areas are a telltale mark of Howard’s work, seen below in the form of a cozy nap-inducing chaise boasting two soft pillows and a throw.

Howard’s advice for pillows on a sofa? Mix and match fabrics and limit patterned fabrics to one set of pillows per sofa. Also, start from the outside with two larger pillows and work your way in, throwing in an odd shape to keep the look from feeling too symmetrical.

Six pieces of framed art are the focal point in a smaller seating area (below right), equipped with a sofa, two upholstered chairs and a small bench for guests to pull up a seat and chat. In another larger seating area, complete with a chaise, the focus is kept on the view outside the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Howard took a risk by placing a bed in the center of the bedroom, but it paid dividends. Just look at this gorgeous space! Not only did this choice help with traffic flow to all corners of the room, it also allows the homeowner to peer through the French doors to the views outside each morning.

Notice anything in particular about these two spaces? In the living room, a painting above the sofa serves as the room’s artwork, while the walls themselves are the art in the bedroom, featuring a mural that creates the perfect backdrop for this beautiful space.

Molly Sims’ Nursery Design

Vintage Sputnik Pendant, DwellStudio Giraffe Push Toy, Animal Art by Sharon Montrose, Pillows covered in John Robshaw Fabric

Layla Grayce co-owners Tiffany Harris and Wendy Estes had the pleasure of co-designing Molly Sims’ nursery alongside Molly’s longtime friend and designer, Kishani Perera. Molly’s own aesthetic of modern bohemian inspired the look: fresh and modern with a vintage twist. And since Molly isn’t afraid of color, mixing and matching patterns, or breaking the so-called “design rules,” it was guaranteed to be fun right from the get-go.

The New Traditionalists Changing Table, John Robshaw Custom Fabrics in Petra Cobalt and Kota Oyster

John Robshaw block printed fabrics provided a basis for the design, bringing in a palette of blues, pinks and oranges that give the room color and personality, while a soft sky blue on the walls gives the room a light and bright feel. For added functionality, an entire wall of storage and a day bed were installed to make up for the nursery’s lack of closet space.

Molly instantly fell in love with the DucDuc modern furnishing line, and many of the room’s pieces, including the crib’s tie-die finish, feature custom finishes. Kishani found the vintage sputnik pendant, vintage pillows and added the sweet animal art. For all of us, working with Molly was a joyful process from start to finish and Layla Grayce is so excited to have been a part of designing such an amazing nursery for baby Brooks Stuber.
