Christmas time is here!

I've been a busy bee- getting lots of client homes ready for Christmas parties. But I have had some time to prepare ourselves for the holidays.

Here are some iPhone pics:

Our tiny Christmas tree!

My Christmas present- Nespresso!

Proofing and sending Christmas cards.

Movie night with hubs- hilariously accurate.

Christmas tree at the Galleria!

Stay tuned for some NYC pics! We are spending new year's eve there this year! So excited!!!

My favorite color has been purple for a long time, but I never tend to use a lot of it in interiors. And the whole contrasting color scheme thing usually isn't my favorite way to do an interior space, but Mancuso Warner Miller did a great job with using purple and yellow, contrasting colors, both in bright intensities, and making it pop.

I do like the use of symmetry in the space. I think it grounds all the bright colors and gives a sense of order to a space that could feel a little "too." The pairs of matching chairs, pillows, mirrors and console, lamps, and even the valances are all very balanced feeling.

Love this styling: bowls, geodes, and lucite.

I usually discourage placing furniture in front of windows, but this chaise fits there so cleverly! 

Great little console/desk and love that pop of sunshine yellow! 

Really cool sofa table. Anyone know where that's from? 

This might be my favorite view: that artwork and that buffet are wonderful! 

Really, such a great space!

What's your take on contrasting colors as a color scheme?
