Pink is My Favorite Color

It’s no mystery to anyone that my favorite color is pink. There is something about the color that instantly makes me smile and when given the choice for a product..if it comes in pink..I get pink. Aerosmith even wrote a song about it and of course, I love that song too. 

I have been blogging a lot about High Point Market, and rightly so, as it’s the event when twice a year, we designers are introduced to the latest and greatest when it comes to home decor. It’s a place where you can cover a lot of ground in just a few short days and with that, can eventually spot the upcoming trends. It’s my favorite thing to do. I love to not only go there to shop for clients, but also get a perspective on what’s hot for the year to come. And let me tell you guys…pink is HOT right now. 

I actually wrote half of this blog before Pantone introduced their color of the year which is pink (Rose Quartz) AND blue (Serenity). Both of which I have seen a lot of recently! 

Almost every showroom I went to last market had a vignette of pink or pink product. I loved it! I also love that many furniture lines are using pink without gender in mind. Gone are the days of only having a pink space for a ladies room, or for a little girl. Pink is all of a sudden a color that many are putting in their main living areas. It's also a very handsome color on my husband might I add! 

Here's what I have been drooling over recently...

At Home with Kate Spade: My Favorite Pieces from Kate Spade Home

I believe that I have officially been living under a rock, because when I went to High Point Furniture Market this past fall, I walked into one of my favorite showrooms, EJ Victor, and was greeted by the most stunning green lacquer doors I’ve ever seen. What these doors led to was a very magical place…the new Kate Spade Home collection. 

I.had.no.idea.

Of course, when I did find out, I was squealing like a thirteen year old girl at a One Direction Concert! It wasn't pretty people..

I always know the 411 on Kate Spade so for me to not even have a clue that there was a home line being introduced was crazy! I even missed the party on Saturday night celebrating the line {insert violins here}. 

The entire experience of walking through the Kate Spade Home showroom was everything I would have ever expected. At every corner, I was greeted by adorable pieces adorned with the details we have come to expect and love by Kate Spade.

One of my favorite things though, was the gallery wall with the Drake Tufted Sofa wrapped in a lovely blue fabric, sitting under said wall. It was a showstopper to say the least!

The first day of walking through the showroom was great. However, I knew if I was really going to get a good look at the line, I was going to have to come back early the next day. And that I did…wearing my little red Kate Spade cape might I add, I was able to really take a look at the line and I can officially say that I am just as in love with the home line as I am with every other thing that hosts the name.

Below are some of my favorite pieces. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

This little Worthington Dining Chair is EVERYTHING! I adore it! 

 

This Georgia Chest is another one of my favorites. I love the gold details and the classic lines.

All of the new lighting is fantastic, but one of my favorites is this Elsie Table Lamp. It comes in three colors and I seriously couldn't decide my favorite if someone made me! 

 

 

Polka Dots are a Kate Spade staple, and this Downing Desk, adorned with little black polka dots do not disappoint! I especially love the brass hardware and the sexy onyx base. 

 

 

Another one of my favorite pieces of upholstery is this Drake Slipper Chair. What makes this chair so lovely is the lush linen in Azalea and the sleek silhouette of the chair. 

Out of all of the rugs...this Leopard Ikat Rug really caught my eye. I love the fusion of the ever so popular and timeless (yes...I said it...timeless!) leopard print, fused with an Ikat print. Brilliant!

I'm pretty obsessed with this Afton Coffee Table as well! It's simple and yet so classic! The brass ferrules are the perfect accent to this stunning table!

Last but certainly not least is the Drake Sofa. The color of this beautiful linen fabric alone makes it such a great piece, however, the style of this sofa is just as lovely. It's a great scale in person and sits comfortably.

I think I could have put the entire website on here because each piece is so adorable and so very Kate Spade. Be sure to check out the website for the entire line including furniture, lighting, bedding and home accessories! What's your favorite piece? I would love to get your thoughts!
