When it comes to creating a fabulous home, we don’t know about you, but we love finding things that can simplify our design process. So, when we stumbled across a gorgeous new site that does just that, Piece + Palette, we were intrigued right away!
Not only are Marisa, Jen and Lauren three best girlfriends from NC but these ladies have style and a concept that is totally unique and, if you ask us, totally brilliant!
They created Piece+Palette to simplify the design process in multiple ways. For one, many of the rooms you see on this post (plus tons more!) are available on their site to shop, in whole or piece by piece. You can literally snag an entire room, which, frankly, sounds amazing, or choose a palette and pick pieces to create a customized room.
If that sounds overwhelming, no need to worry! Interior designer Lauren Burns is on hand to answer questions along the way. You can actually upload pictures of your specific space and get Lauren’s advice on whether they will work.
Or, if you have a specific questions about something that’s been puzzling you–like, whether the light fixture you’ve been eyeing on Piece+Palette is too big for your room–you can get expert advice right away!
Such a huge, huge help when it comes to taking the guesswork out of creating a beautiful, functional room.
If you’ve ever stood in the Benjamin Moore store with 200 blue paint chips in your hand, you know, like we do, that paint colors can be tricky! Benjamin Moore sends high res photos of the paints used in Piece+Palette designer rooms that Lauren has designed, and, better yet, these lovely ladies match paint colors to fabrics they offer on the website.
As if that weren’t enough, Lauren is also on hand to give color advice. If you’ve ever painted and entire room only to realize that you meant to have a warm gray but you got lavender, you can imagine how invaluable this advice is!
These ladies all have different tastes and styles that are represented on the site, but they always agree on these three key principles:
- Just because it’s expensive, that doesn’t make it fabulous!
- Quality over quantity…always, always, always!
- Be unique! Make your home your sanctuary and a reflection of yourself and what you and your family love.
We couldn’t agree any more… If you’re looking for a summer spruce, stop by and see our new southern friends at Piece+Palette!
What People are Saying About Slightly South of Simple:
“Kristy Woodson Harvey really knows how to tell a southern tale. Every single time her stories unwind gently, like a soft wind in Georgia, then that wind catches you off guard and throws you into her characters’ tumultuous lives. Slightly South of Simple is the same. One gracious, old home inherited from Grandma, one mother who has so many secrets if the walls talked they would pour out like lemonade on a hot summer day, and three headstrong sisters, all working their way through the chaotic mess and joy of life, together. I loved it.” (–New York Times bestselling author Cathy Lamb )
