EILEEN KATHRYN BOYD & HER COLOR CHUTZPAH


Welcome to a new week!
Eileen Kathryn Boyd is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers.  Her color sense sets her apart in a world of design pablum. Her work leaves you with the same feeling as hopping a plane from North Dakota in the dead of Winter and jetting off to Palm Beach or St. Barts. To say it's refreshing is putting it mildly. 


Eileen has designed a gorgeous line of vibrant fabrics for Duralee



I am a perennial fan of the pink/orange partnership!

 Eileen's shop in Huntington, NY


Love how she painted the chair frame an unexpected color


I came across Eileen's site and blog the other day (I am ashamed to say, for the first time! How could I have been so living under a rock??) I had admired her work all over design mags and the internet for a while, but without even "catching" who exactly was behind it. I was thrilled - quite frankly, surprised AND flattered to see she had listed Annechovie as one of her "must-read" blogs. If you're not already hip to it, you've got to get to know her work and be sure to follow her blog here. You'll feel like a kid in a candy store!

Acertado uso del color y el espacio, sin estridencias a peasr de l uso del fluor.
Me gusta el interiorismo, aunque mi trabajo esté muy lejos de ello.
Me gusta tu estilo
