These two images (above and below especially) are so great for demonstrating beige undertones done just right! The sofa and roman shade (above) have a red undertone and the sofa and coffee table below have a green undertone.
Kim travels with her clients to find wonderful pieces for their homes. She says “It’s an adventure that is as much fun as it is invaluable to discover those rare and unique pieces not found in the galleries and showrooms back home. In addition good pieces from trips bring with them special memories of that place and time where they were found. So every time a client looks at them a feeling of the moment and fine experience accompanies that gaze”.
I find it so fascinating how furniture, accessories and art create a feeling when you look at them. Recently a friend bought me the most adorable little boudoir chair in wrought iron (pictures still to come). It’s wrought iron, old and peeling and could have been left that way but it wasn’t the right colour so I painted it black and still need to find a little piece of fabric to cover the seat. But every time I look at the chair in my bedroom I think about my friend Virginia and it makes me feel good.
With this new place I’m decorating I really want art that comes from somewhere more special than a big box store (so I’m worried that my walls will stay empty for too long) but I think it’s also true that we upgrade all our lives so sometimes it’s nice to have something pretty on the wall even if you don’t have a ‘story’ behind the purchase.
