High Point Recap

We just arrived home from High Point Market. We had a great time seeing our vendors and reps. as well as the new trends in design. We learned that purple and orange are definitely the “colors of the moment.”

Lots of products are going to be trickling in over the next few months. Be on the look out for new bedding, swivel chairs, sofas, lighting, accessories, and case goods in the store and online! Check out a few of our favorite finds and displays from market below.

Small Spaces

eb538ec71340325dc049cb5fd0d8c40bMany homeowners today have started to renovate their current property, or downsize to a smaller “space”. As with any trend, this is changing the mindset of the average consumer. Gone are the days when more always meant better. Say hello to utilizing every space in your home and maximizing your living areas.

Marketing to those in small spaces has become big business. The smaller apartment sofa has taken it’s rightful place next to it’s larger and bulkier cousin, the 93 inch sofa. Many living and family rooms are simply unable to accommodate a full size sofa so the smaller, more compact apartment sofa can solve the problem. One of our most popular small sofas is the Lee 1009-02, a favorite with our regular designer customers.

Couple this sofa with two of our Lee 2350-01 Chairs and you have instant comfort, as seen below in one of favorite interior projects.

Behind the sofa, add the Sherfield Console Table for the warmth of wood and the function of a table to place lamps of your choice. We especially like the Kate Lamp in either the Polished Nickel or the Natural Brass. These lamps can bring a great sense of style to any room in your home.

Homeowners are finding ways to maximize sitting areas in their smaller spaces while also creating cozy nooks. Because of this, we’re excited to be offering a line of furniture and accessories on our website that is specifically targeting those that have space constraints, but also want to create a warm and cozy home. For some inspiration on how you can transform a small space, check out the photos below.

We love the idea of a secret reading nook on a porch. We imagine sneaking out there on a cool November afternoon with a glass of lemonade and a good book.

By utilizing two benches on either side of a table, you lose the bulkiness of 6 to 8 chairs pushed up against it and create a cozy dining experience.

We love the way this attic space has been converted into a bedroom. By using a daybed instead of a traditional bed, the space doubles as a bedroom and a sitting area. Great utilization of space.

This is one of the most inviting window seats we have seen. By adding this seat to the window, the homeowner has created a little nook to read or gather one’s thoughts.

By using white on the walls and in the upholstery, the space appears larger and more open than it actually is.

The homeowner of this home used counter stools to address eating in the kitchen and used what would typically be the space designated for the kitchen table as a comfortable conversation area.

As designers we want you to use all the space in your home to create a living area where you want to spend your time. Your home is your castle, no matter the size, so treat it like that. As the saying goes, there is no place like home.

Until next time,

Color Palette Inspiration

August 6, 2013 by  
Filed under Blog

The summer is quickly coming to an end here in Atlanta. The back to school things have been bought and the kids have headed back to school. All of us at LAURA RAMSEY FURNITURE AND INTERIORS had the opportunity this summer to get away for great family vacations and recharged our batteries. The true glory of a vacation is that it allows us to slow down and stop for a minute to see the beauty that is literally all around us. Just thinking about the sound of a child’s laughter, or seeing a wave break on the shore while sea gulls call to each other, makes you stop and think about how much beauty is right in front of us all of the time.

Where does our color inspiration come from? When our eyes take in a beautiful sight are we really seeing it? Are we slowing down to smell the roses and thinking that’s enough? Or are we missing the beauty that this world places in front of us everyday? As designers, we were mesmerized by these gorgeous photos and the color palettes that they inspired. Do you want to redecorate a family room, design a new baby’s bedroom or romanticize a master bedroom? Then stop and take notice of the beauty that surrounds you. These are some of the beautiful images and inspired color palettes that have made us stop and take notice.

beach-day-photo

The intensity of the grays in the storm clouds against the clean color of the breaking waves is so calming. Then you add in the pop of the color of the red umbrella and wow!

color-palette-3

We dare you to not find the various hues of the blues in this crashing wave not only soothing, but also utterly beautiful. Can you see a sun room or kitchen designed around the palette that this photo inspired?

lake

Are we vacationing in the Pacific Northwest? Exploring the glories of Ireland or enjoying a cool, morning mist on an island in Hawaii? I guess it doesn’t really matter, all we know is that we are calm and serene when we see the beauty of the color palette that is inspired by this photo.

silverware

The monochromatic colors of this aged farm table against both the patina of the silverware, and the crispness of the white in the napkin, make this palette very soothing. It makes us wish it was a Sunday afternoon and we were heading for a favorite spot with a good book.

blue-doors

These turquoise doors, in what we hope is some faraway coastal village, are a great example of the wonderful beauty the world has to offer. Someone probably walks through these doors every morning and evening. We hope they take the time to stop to look at the glorious vibrancy of the color that adds to the beauty in their daily life.

yellow-flwoers

The floral arrangement’s vibrant yellows, reds and oranges against the neutral tans in this photo makes us happy. Are you feeling blue? Walk into a room with this arrangement and you may just start having a different day.

purple-flowers

This gorgeous photo of a simple flower and the color palette it projects is a perfect example of something that is around us all the time and the beauty it inspires! Imagine a daughter’s bedroom done in these colors. Gorgeous!
