Summa’ Time….and the decor is easy!

So what are some of the cool trends in home design for Summer 2015? It’s all about color, geometrics and copper accessories! Here’s a sample of some of Sherwin Williams’ color picks for 2015. The ranges of colors go from soft pastel to smoky hues, but they all have a wonderful soothing quality.

Here are some great fabric selections from our own studio that tie into this summer’s color trend. These fun, geometric patterns can be used for draperies, table runners or pillows. Whether you prefer the darker color tones in your décor, or want to lighten it up with a pastel, try pairing it up a neutral tone with a metallic sheen. This adds an element of light and sophistication.

Here’s another great way to add fun geometric design to your home. We love these beautiful vases and home décor. The geometric shelving looks great in any paint color or stained wood tone. You can even try some of the beautiful pastel colors that are trending this summer.

Need to add a little “shine” to your space? Copper accessories are another great new trend that we really love! This elegant copper based table lamp is a great way to bounce a little extra light around a dark corner. Copper trays and platters can be used in unique ways as well. They can be used as table top tray or you can try arranging them on a wall in to add some visual interest. We also love how these copper drawer pulls give this dresser that little touch of shine and modern elegance.

Now that summer is here, it’s time to rejuvenate your home! You can easily modernize and refresh your décor without breaking the bank. Try adding some of the new, fabulous, colors of the season with pillows or try painting an old piece of furniture. You can also get playful with some great geometric patterns in rugs or new drapes. We hope that we have inspired you to splash into summer with some fun, fresh design ideas!

A.Clore Interiors styles “She Lives Here” at Bloomingdales Orlando

6

Sheer excellence filled the air last Thursday evening on the 3rd floor of Bloomingdales Orlando in the Mall at Millenia where fashion and interior design made a collision. The champagne was flowing and the DJ had the beats pumping! Guests and shoppers also enjoyed light hors d’oeuvres while viewing the “She Lives Here” vignettes styled by A.Clore Interiors. The Bloomingdales team challenged the firm to translate this seasons hottest fashion trends into home decor by giving them 6 very different looks to create a backdrop for the model as if she lived there…..

Trending Tropics

The trending tropics look was inspired by the major influence of the tropical and beachy prints that snuck on the runway this season. A Ted Baker jumpsuit started this Bahamian bedroom and rattan bed frame set the stage! To make sure the model fit in her space, Amber selected neutral bedding with fun pops of color in the accent pillows. Designer Tip: Like the stylists did with the model’s head scarf, use the least dominant color as your accent when choosing pillows, throws, etc. Amber created a multifunctional use of the desk by doubling it as the night stand which is also a great space saving tip for small areas!

Instantly Iconic

Instantly Inconic is that go-to look. Its the classic DVF wrap dress and red lip. Pair it with an trendy top bun and classic clutch and you are ready to go! Amber envisioned this model lounging effortlessly with a cocktail in her hand. She paired the look with some adorable Mitchell Williams  + Bob Gold upholstered wool chairs and a cow hide rug.

Haute Hippie

We can’t deny the return to retro we’ve been seeing this season so the Bloomingdales stylists added this white and blue halter jump suit to the mix. Amber went psychedelic with the tableware in this vignette and kept the mod going with the 3 arm floor lamp and acrylic bucket chair. Totally radical….

Cool As Ice

This look was inspired by the all-white trend we are picking up on this season. From tailored capris to the classic white button down, pairing whites and grays is a YES in fashion and design!! Amber created this vignette by mixing white and gray in equal distribution. By keeping the contrast equal, you are get a cohesive sense of a monochromatic coloring that keeps the excitement!

Statement Stripes

Stripes are here to stay. Classic and chic. A stripe pattern is the perfect addition to any wardrobe or interior. It immediately adds dimension and typically can work with any pattern or shape!

Colors of the Season

Blue, Red, Yellow and Green are the colors of the season!! Everywhere Amber turned around there was a bright and colorful bag so she asked the handbag department to showcase the bags of the season along with a vibrant table setting perfect for a summer party!!

Remember, decorating your home does not have to be hard (or expensive)!! Treat it like your wardrobe, surround yourself with “signature statement” pieces that bring you joy inside! Loving your space is the basis of living a healthy and fulfilled life.

5Amber and her team (left to right: Corene, Samara, Amber, Amelia, Alivia) were so honored to host this event and were happy to help the Harbor House of Central Florida by giving back 10% of any sale generated by the event! They are excited to bring more of their youthful energy and mature design style back to Bloomingdales in September 2015!!
