I am still salivating over all of the great inspiration from the High Point Market Bloggers Tour. My first post on the tour covered texture my second High Point Market post dealt with black and white. This post I would like to dedicate to color. I was a bit surprised that there was still a lot of gray, and tons of texture and plenty of black and white. I expected every showroom to be bursting with color but I personally did not find that to be the case. Click the links in the bottom of the post to see what the other bloggers thought. Was there more color than I realized because I am more of a neutral love
Today we are talking color. The color I found far and away the most prominent was green. Green is said to be the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy,and is associated with growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and the environment. No wonder it is big right now.
The Bungalow 5 showroom was filled with green accents (and yes neutrals). Here several greens were mixed on pillows.
and here on a black cerused oak side chair cushion and lots of fun accessories
The Thomas Obrien Collection for Century was bursting with green accents
Check out the verdant green walls in one of the many gorgeous rooms in the EJ Victor showroom.
More green on the walls and pillows at Ralph Lauren for EJ Victor
LOVED the green striped walls with the gorgeous white sectional from EJ Victor covered in Perennials canvas.
At Littman Brands, home to Hudson Valley Lighting, Troy Lighting, Corbet and Mitzi; chartreuse was used to accent their beautiful lighting.
Many of you may know I am not a personal fan of pink. There was still a fair amount of it popping up in showrooms. Here on pillows on a beautiful sectional at Highland House. Love the simple skirt detail. Doesn’t the artwork make the space?
Pink velvet still seems to hold some clout, It is shown here in Crypton, by Parker Kennedy Living at the Rowe Showroom. If I were a pink fan this sofa would have my name on it! Love everything about this space!
There’s this thing about blue though isn’t there? It never looks dated…always fresh. This room at Highland House is yummy don’t you think? There was a lot to love in this showroom as well.
More blue love from Highland House
Here are a few photos just for fun from the tour. A group photo at EJ Victor. That is CEO John Jokinen sitting on my left, a true southern gentleman. I was sitting on the ottoman and made room for him. He kindly accepted.
Here we are with the incredible Thomas Obrien in the Century Showroom. Notice how Mary Ann and I managed to park ourselves on either side of him.
I want to thank Adam Janko and his team from Esteem Media for allowing me to participate in the High Point Bloggers Tour. I enjoyed every minute of it.
