Cool and Refreshing-Lemon Sorbet

By Bolickinteriors

I can’t even believe it’s been two weeks since I posted, not only was this past week just pure design craziness, but there was a technical glitch which prevented me from posting even one sentence. Frustrating to say the least, but I am in the process of revamping my blog. These changes will accomodate three advertisers of whom have been so patient with all the difficulties that seem to come along with anything to do with website upgrades. I’m beyond excited, because I really love the changes that are being made, so in the next month (hopefully) it will be a new and improved “Ace of Space Blog.” In the meantime I am just very grateful that I can post again until my Web- Designer extraordinaire has the new site operational.

A few weeks ago I recieved a press release from Benjamin Moore, announcing their trend color for 2013, Lemon Sorbet. At first I was a little skeptical. But, truthfully it’s such a soft transitional color that is going to be a great partner when paired with greys to blues and back. I think it’s a color that is really going to withstand the litmus test of time. I was starting to get bone tired of “Tangerine Tango.” I honestly didn’t use it much. Just a pinch in a few pillows hidden away in Mr. B’s basement, and since most of my clients lean toward classic, timeless design, it really wasn’t very appealing. Lemon Sorbet is something that I can get excited about….so here are some of my favorite interiors using a scoop of yellow…

There is something so dramatic about the pairing of yellow against white…so if you want to add just a little color bring in a pillow, accessories or some inexpensive artwork.

I love the crisp white, subtle patterned drapery and soft greys in the rug and sofa. I am absolutely head over heels with the silver orb on the coffee table. Stunning…

Not only is the soft yellow fabric on the headboard just the perfect compliment to the horizontal khaki stripes on the wall, but I am totally in love with the platform of stacked drawers under the bed with leather strap pulls.

From the crystal chandlier, introduction of soft yellows on the chair backs to the floor to ceiling drapery, and the unique parquet design on the floors this dining space is just plain breathtaking.

Texture, texture, texture…from the rug, to the spruce hued velvet chair. This space is just plain layered in style. The yellow and white striped headboard proves that that this sunny color can be successfully married to a variety of shades…

This is an interior that I did several years ago for Home Improvement Magazine, showing how glamour can be injected into a small space through the use of color and reflective surfaces. My colour pallete was inspired by the diamond print fabric of yellow and white, which I carried through the room in the yellow wool throw, crewel print pillow and the lemony wall color. The candle sticks which I used in the photoshoot are now gracing my dining room table, and were the very last pair sold by Williams-Sonoma Home. So talk about lady luck.
