Color Porn

It's no secret that I love my color.  Not only do I love colorful interiors I also love a colorful wardrobe. Although I do need to get better with bringing more color into my closet.


One designer name that is known for their use of color is Tibi!  I mean they really are all about color, color, color!  The founder of Tibi, Amy Smilovic, not only loves designing colorful fashion but she also loves it in her home.  To say I am in love is an understatement.

Her house had me at the bedroom!  Designed by Shostak Style, Inc. it was featured in Connecticut Cottages & Gardens and InStyle Magazine.

The wallpaper, the rug, the bench, the bedding- the color and pattern here is perfection.

Hello Kelly Green!  The use of two different fabrics on these chairs is great- I want to get some chairs like these for my house.  Don't even get me started on those yellow curtains in the back there.

Have you noticed all the fabulous bright and colorful rugs she has?  Each room gets better and better. But, I think the dining room rug is my favorite.

Another fun rug and another bright bedroom!

Five words for you... I need this bathroom!

Currently I am coveting a few new Tibi dresses and some BRIGHT colors in my home.  Could you ever guess why?

Hi LindsB!
I love color too! Gorgeous home and style! I LOVE the paisley wallpaper- wow!

Thank you for the tip on the mailbox post! I can't believe I haven't seen that yet. We were thinking of moving it further off the road than it is presently, so we will definitely do that now with this info.
Hope you are staying cool in this crazy HOT weather! I swear I heard our antique house 'thank us' today for putting in central ac during the renovation!!:)
hugs,
joan

Love this home! I'm a huge fan of color in interior design as well, and this home is such a great example of color done well. Thanks for sharing!

I could move right in and she could leave the house furnished, that would include those cute boys. I would make them a fabulous breakfast and teach them art lessons. Deal?
