BOLD EXPRESSIONS
A luxury aesthetic can be created with high-end décor and upscale finishes, but homes with that intangible wow factor are created by making daring design decisions. This fall, take a walk on the wild side and swap the oft-repeated warm reds and oranges for a cobalt blue or emerald green. Find inspiration from a recent home project by Lawrence Mayer Interior Design. “Our client wanted a soft and warm neutral palette with some pops of color, which could easily be changed without much fuss,” said Mary Jo, an LM designer. “The soft textured sectional fabric is an excellent backdrop for creating a warm, inviting palette, then we mixed in rich brown-tone leather to o set the creamy sectional. A velvety blue gray on the club chair and a spicy azure blue on the ottoman marries together all our tones for a comfortable, inviting space for the whole family.” The result is a memorable and definitive impact, one that exudes personality and character. lawrencemayer.com
