Katie Leed abstract art

Good morning, chic readers! We thought you could use a few rich, fall hues to get your morning started off on the right note. But the gorgeous, good taste of Katie Leede is perfect for any season.

Each and every space is wonderfully planned and altogether unique.

Bright, Bold, Beautiful: Jewel Tones

Good morning, chic friends! Please help us give a great big welcome to our good friend Laura Trevey. You know her for her stunning art and her captivating daily inspiration at Bright, Bold & Beautiful. And, we just have to say that, as we’ve gotten to know Laura over the past few years, she is just as bright, bold and beautiful as her website! She loves the way that jewel tones are spilling over into interiors, and we agree wholeheartedly! And that they’re spilling over into Trevey’s art too? Well, that’s just a happy side effect! Take a peek at her fabulous insight below, then go visit Laura at Bright, Bold & Beautiful. (And pick up a piece of art or two!) You’ll be so glad you did! Thanks for sharing your peerless style with us today, Laura. We can’t thank you enough!

This year is no different from past years. I love to see how the fashion trends spill over into home decor. I am drawn to these bold and beautiful colors myself. Below are some jewel tone home decor faves that have caught my eye this season, including some from my own watercolor designs!
