“word to the wise” wednesday: alexa hampton

If contrast creates drama and action in a room, and proportion begets harmony and structure, then color helps bring a room to life.  Colors function as adjectives in a room’s design, bringing sentiment and passion into the mix.  We all have a visceral, emotional reaction to color: certain shades feel soothing and familiar, others sensuous and romantic, still others traditional and elegant.  … Consider taking the plunge [with a color that speaks to you], even if it is only through a few bold accessories – a ceramic lamp, a painting, some vivid throw pillows – to make your life a little more beautiful.

—  Alexa Hampton (as quoted in The Language of Interior Design)

    Alexa's book signing in our Showroom at Market was great. The energy around her lit up the room. The book is a great read and full of inspiring ideas.
