June's featured room design: 3 ways to pull off sophistication in a fun color study or office
DESIGN AND DECOR
Can we believe holidays are getting closer again! Getting into the early fun last year for costuming and Halloween called for a lot of decisions between classic Minnie Mouse or modern day cartoon characters. I'm classic and vintage when it comes to personal style, but also modern and fun at times. For me, the indecisiveness didn't get any better when we walked into the local Walmart and saw the classic pumpkin pale sitting in the front of the store, and then saw a modern Minnie Mouse head pale as we were leaving.
Needless to say, we ended up buying both for the little one.
The classic orange and black pale brought back some great memories of the holiday as a kid. However, as an adult appreciate the color orange as a year round color now!
The color orange encourages productivity. So for this featured post, I simply decided on a design for a study room. My mind has floated around a design for a productive study room for some time now especially with many working and studying from home.
For this study room I selectively picked items that could go for anyone, young and old!

Here are some tips if you are using this design for inspiration and shopping around other vendors!
USE THE COLOR ORANGE OR "ORANGE-Y TONES" THROUGHOUT THE ROOM FOR PRODUCTIVITY
“The triangles used in the accents and rug came together with the items that fit the color scheme.”
The color orange is a color that I am most times in question about when using it frequently. I have found myself owning anything that is orange in something that loved when I saw it. But I must say that it is an exciting color in most cases where you can find shades that are not too deep, but soft oranges. Even more exciting, when paired with the right complimenting colors it can really take on the creative feel in a space.
FIND ELEGANT DESIGNS IN YOUR FAVORITE GEOMETRICAL SHAPE
The geometrical shapes just came together as I came up with a design for this study room. The triangles used in the accents and rug came together with the items that fit the color scheme. Their is so much decor available now that takes on the triangle and zig zags. When paired with the color orange, it gets the design theme for this room across so well. Here are some my favorite picks for the decor with a mix of orange, the complimenting colors, and triangle patterns.
CIRCULAR LIGHTING AND DECORATIVE ACCENTS
“The items that are available in the colors that you are looking for most times will narrow down your options instantly.”
Using circular lighting throughout the room in the ceiling light and lamp was the most simplistic, elegant way to communicate fun and formal. There are so many lights available that have this shape, but if selected in a sophisticated finish, you have mastered the goal! The items that are available in the colors that you are looking will help narrow down your options instantly. Dark brown finishes was the goal here.
SELECT EARTH-TONE DECORATIVE ACCENTS AND STUDY ROOM MUST-HAVES
To pull off the whole tranquil vibe for this type of space, plants, wall art, and one or two throw pillows are a must-haves!
