Move Over Sunbrella, There's a New Kid In Town:Crypton

Most of you are familiar with the Sunbrella brand as being a sturdy outdoor furniture fabric. Color penetrates through the fabric and won’t fade or wash away since the color is added during the production of the fiber. In addition to durability and cleanability, Sunbrella is now available in luxurious textures and sophisticated patterns such as velvets, chenilles, rich jacquards, sheers, etc. It feels soft and good and has a new five year warranty!

But move over Sunbrella, there’s a new kid in town. Announcing the wonderful world of CRYPTON! Crypton acts like a moisture barrier while still allowing ventilating air to pass through the fibers. Because of this, the fabric resists stains and in a big way! Nail polish, grime, dirt, ink, red wine (YES! Red wine!) lifts right up! The perfect solution for kids, pets and red wine drinkers!!!!! This treatment finish also helps block the spread of harmful bacteria, viruses, mildew, mold and algae.

Go Big or Go Home!!!


Sarah Jessica Parker from “Sex in the City,” said it best when describing her boyfriend “BIG” by telling her girlfriends to “Go Big or Go Home!” In my interior design work, I can’t begin to tell you how often I use over scaled pieces to create impact and drama. Size has a way of putting everything into perspective!

If you have a small room, try a medium tone intensity for color or a dark bold color and then fill the space with oversized furniture and the room will seem bigger! I know it doesn’t sound possible, but it is so true!

In this living room that is still “in the works,” notice how the huge 60″ light fixture by Curry & Co., brings the ceiling down into the room and adds a wowy bit of drama that is both beautiful and impactful.

Big accessories make a statement and require less effort. Notice how this large pedestal and 39″ tall vase fills the space ever so nicely and yet, required little effort!

Notice the large vase and the pedestal in corner are two big accessories that make a statement!

Try adding a splash of “huge” in your space and give it a second sink in, then, viola, you will have instant impact and distinctive drama!

Please send me pictures of what large pieces you have used or tell me how you have incorporated big into your own spaces to prove this design theory..

Live inspired and stay fabulous!!

XO,

Kimberly!

Fresh Color Trends for 2016!

kimberly grigg south carolina interior designer presents 2016 color trends

Hello friends! I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season with friends and family! Now that 2016 is officially underway… I wanted to share some of Benjamin Moore’s color trends for the year! I will also be sharing Pantone’s colors of the year.

kimberly grigg south carolina interior designer presents 2016 color trends

How fabulous are these soft, light colors?! I especially love the creamy feel of “Ballet White” and could definitely picture using this shade in some of my projects! Benjamin Moore never ceases to amaze me on their color predictions and trends!

Now on to Pantone’s selections this year! Usually they just choose one color but I suppose they couldn’t resist this year… and I don’t blame them!

Drumroll please………..

kimberly grigg south carolina interior designer presents 2016 color trends

Rose Quartz & Serenity are the winners for 2016!! And I’m in love with both…separately and as a team :)

They are both so gorgeous and can lift the spirits of any room! Stay tuned, you never know what colors will end up in a “That’s So Fabulous” interior…!

As you think about how you might use these colors in your home and wardrobe… take a few moments to read what Pantone themselves, had to say about these refreshing choices.

“As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”

I’m certainly ready to embrace these colors… are you?!
