On My Radar: Coral Rooms

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | www.fromtherightbank.com

 

It seems like every other room I’ve pinned lately has been coral or has a lot of coral in it.

I’ve always loved orange but didn’t start warming up to coral until some time last year and now it seems I can’t get enough of it.

I guess colors go in and out of favor with us like everything else.

For some reason I think my coral phase is a short one though. How do you feel about coral?

On My Radar: Neon

Have you noticed neon popping up everywhere in interiors? Ever since I brought my neon pink coffee table home, neon has been catching my eye.

And have you seen this home that’s been making the rounds in the blogosphere:

It has just a touch of neon here and there and I think that works really well.

All of this reminds me of the cover of Abigail Ahern’s book:

It’s more than three years old and still looks great.

So where do you stand on neon?

On My Radar: Gray Gotland Pelts/Sheepskin

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | www.fromtherightbank.com

I love sheepskin as rugs and seat cushions in the colder months and have had some of those Ikea ones that everyone has for a few years now. Ever since last winter though, I’ve been dying for some of these gorgeous gray Gotland pelts.

As luck would have it, Monika is carrying these in her shop, Splendid Willow Avenue ($340 each). Here’s what she has to say about them:

Considered by many to be the most desirable sheep skins, are the smooth silky, gray curly and gorgeous skins from the old viking sheep on Gotland (a small, Swedish viking island in the Baltic sea). Gotland pelts are world-renowned for their superior quality. They are strong, durable and very high luster with an array of rich gray shades.

I’m going to place an order as soon as I decide on how many. I would love six for the chairs in my kitchen like in the first photo but that seems extravagant since we only use two of the chairs most of the time. So I may opt for just a couple for the couch in the family room.

It seems they are also on Ikea’s radar. When I was there last week, I spotted a gray version of their popular Ludde sheepskin ($39):

So what do you think? How would you use these pelts in your home?

On My Radar: Shots of Blue

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | www.fromtherightbank.com

About a month ago, blue dressers were on my radar. I kept noticing them everywhere. I must still have blue on the brain because these days I’m seeing shots of blue in a lot of rooms and I’m really loving it, especially the dark inky ones.

Off the topic – how awesome is this floor:

So, are there any shots of blue in your homes? I have a few accessories but I think I need to paint something like in that first photo. It’s hot, right?

Oh, and there’s something very exciting going down tomorrow so be sure to stop by!

On My Radar: Blue Dressers

I think I’m starting a new series with this post of things/themes that catch my eye. For a while now, it’s been blue dressers. I’m seeing them everywhere and they’re all so pretty.
