Interior Designer’s Guide To Using The Color Lavender At Home
A London Home
Most definitely, de Gournay wall coverings lend themselves to a color tableau that includes lavender. With that in mind, de Gournays’ Instagram featured this London home. Design designer Thomas Hamel designed several hand-painted panels called ‘Le Bresil’ in an entrance hall to welcome guests. In particular, the faded lavender velvet sofa is how the color, when muted with a grey, is the epitome of high style.
A Palm Beach Store
The French wallpaper marque also highlighted their creations in the Kirna Zabete store in Palm Beach. The New York founded specialty fashion boutique founded by Beth Buccini enlisted the same designer, Steven Gambrel, to create a posh shopping oasis in the upscale Florida location. In effect, by toning down any artifice of the pastel shade of lavender by adding grey, make this de Gournay tropical floral-themed wall covering beyond gorgeous. As an example, this velvet settee, paired with marble accents, almost skews grey.
In a similar fashion, colored glass vases and objet d’art do the trick and are perfect for non-committal design types. To specify, one of Nest Casa’s favorite glass designers is a Danish artist and designer, Helle Mardahl. The Copenhagen-based glass ‘maestro’ uses mouth-blown techniques to realize her bulbous, asymmetrical milky glass vases, plates, jars, and other dishes, for instance. These delightful vessels beg classification as impossible-to-own-too-many.
As a matter of fact, a favorite motto at Nest Casa is that throw pillows are the best way to add a pop of color. The most compelling evidence of this is Ikat-dyed styles that contrast a unique custom embroidery headboard and play nicely with velvet color block. Similarly, lavender pillows with silk fringe trim contrast perfectly with black and white houndstooth check chairs in the 1 Place Vendome restaurant.
Walls, especially when used as an accent wall, are another method for incorporating the color lavender. This kitchen Milan-inspired design kitchen uses a pinkish lavender to create a wall of cabinets.
Once again, de Gournay stuns with wallpaper in the lavender vein. Set to a midnight blue background, this ‘Abbasi in the Sky’ wallpaper in shades of lavender and purple in this Doha Townhouse becomes the only focal point needed in this room.
