Here at Deborah Main Designs, to escape the heat, we just got back from a family vacation by staying at the Menger Hotel in San Antonio (more on historic hotels this fall!), lounging by their pool, and eating lots of ice cream…and what a divine meal atop the Tower of the Americas. But with all this heat we keep talking about (and in Texas it sticks around until the end of September!), we think it’s about time to spice things up a bit! What better way then to add some warmth to your summer home than with a punch of color? We prefer something from this color story of orange and red pillows to add a clean, vibrant edge to any décor.
In this family of colors, both red and orange, have long been associated with activity and the unconventional. As you can see, they really do convey action in this newly renovated showroom, the Interior Design Gallery in Austin, Texas, where we brought bright energy and vigor to their beautiful furnishings with this color story. With irregular spots on the rectangle Pop Art pillow made from a 1960′s patio dress, and lively stripes on the square pillow, this duo of orange pillows rivals the brilliantly unusual portrait of a vintage car in the background! (Both the couch and painting are available at Interior Design Gallery).
If you aren’t feeling the fire of our summer red and orange series, don’t fret! We have an amazing off white & tan series that can help you conquer the neutral tones of a balmy beach house.
We are very excited to be featured in Interior Design Gallery’s newly remodeled showroom and cannot encourage you enough to stop in and check out some of the fabulous accessories and furniture they carry. This is the only showroom in town too that you can see all of our collections under one roof! Now how about that?
So how about it? I MUST ask you a question: What colors have you used this summer to liven up your home or summer cottage? We would love to hear from you, so please let us know what you’ve been up to with your summer decor.
And take time out today from your busy schedule to catch me and two other savvy business owners on FashionMingle.net’s new Retail Success: Buying the Best Series. Whether your designs are red hot or cool blue, Deborah Main Designs has got you covered. This live panel will provide tips on connecting with buyers and approaching boutiques with your designs. Until next week, XO PG.
