Rust Revelation

Consider the color rust when designing the interior of your Doylestown apartment….it is quite different, adds warmth, and subtle inspiration.

…my favorite piece, the  Rusty Scroll ottoman from Spacify….inspiration for this post…

….adding a throw or some pillows in rust can really highlight a bland room….

…..love the color combination here…almost anything is possible…

…rust objects d’art….from Colour Lovers….

….soft and pretty…rust, gold and taupe together…

….a combo of red, orange, and yellow pillows spill into rust…

Just adding a touch of rust color to any room in your Doylestown apartment is worth trying.  Rust goes with white, sage, beige and brown tones, and can add a hot reflection on black furniture.  Hope you find some of these images inspiring for your apartment in Doylestown.

Celebrity Living Rooms

My fascination with living space of famous people continues.  Taking hints from popular interior designers of celebrities homes can enhance your Doylestown apartment.

“The making of the house was as significant to me as the living in it,” says Jennifer Anistan of her Beverly Hills retreat designed by Stephen Shadley.  This sleek living room full of warmth opens out to a koi pond.  Table is from Todd Merrill Antiques. Glant linen on sofa. Velvet chair is by Manuel Canovas.  (March, 2010).  Maybe we can’t go so far as to putting a koi pond in our Doylestown apartment, but the rich tones of this room would be easy to duplicate.

For a totally different look to your Doylestown apartment take a look at this stunning 70s-like room of Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish.  This Boogie Nights inspired living room was designed by Martin Lawrence-Bullard.  The scenery is L.A., but the minimalist clean lines and color can be inspiring in your Doylestown apartment.  Onyx and chrome low tables by Lawrence-Bullar. Carpet by The Rug Company.  (Dec. 2009)

Ah, love the comfy look of this space.  “We just wanted to feel like you’re in the country,” says Dennis Quaid of his Los Angeles home he shares with wife Kimberly.  This relaxed, comfortable interior is both artistic and welcoming. I would add those rust-colored ottomans and table to my Doylestown apartment in a second if I could. Designers John and Krista Everage incorporated the rough-hewn ceiling beams from a Pennsylvania barn.  Now there’s something close to home.  (Nov. 2008)

Patrica Heaton and David Hunt’s L.A. home is a romantic delight.  This Hancock Park home was designed by Bebe Johnson and Ellen Greer.  “Despite its large size, there’s a hominess to it,” says the actress.  We find this space on the formal side, yet quite inviting.  Painting the walls of your Doylestown apartment can change the appearance completely. Consider a soft yellow such as this to bring a bit of warmth to your room.  Carpet shown here is by Monsour.  Sofa and ottoman (love that orange!) by A. Rudin.  (Dec. 2009)

Saved the best for last.  Cheryl and Rob Lowe hired architect Don Nulty and designer David Phoenix to design their dream house. Arranging your furniture in the more central area of the large living room in your Doylestown apartment is a great idea.  Again here, the soft tones of ivory, tan, and gray meld together. consider gold frames for artwork, mirrors, and of course, the wondrous chandelier if possible in your apartment.  In this living room, the photo above the Dutch secretary is by Lyndie Benson.  The Sisal rug is by Stark. (Nov. 2010)

Romantic Room Design

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I’ve got the bug to find romance in decor…and some ideas can easily be incorporated into your Doylestown apartment.  Finding an antique mirror like this one for the bedroom adds instant romance…

Taking some romance ideas from this living room and adding them to your Doylestown apartment space can be easily done. A soft white sofa with changeable cover and toss pillows and candlesticks on the coffee table add romance. Another mirror, over fireplace, adds interest.

Instant romance: A canopy bed, soft shades of rose, creative patterns, a crystal chandelier, and gilded frames.  Consider some of these ideas when decorating your Doylestown apartment.

We cannot forget dining in your Doylestown apartment. Soft throws over chairs and double table cloths add instant grace and flow. The peachy tones we think are, well…just peachy.

We can’t forget kitchens!  Is there such a thing as a romantic kitchen? Well, this one suits me.  Adding warm tones to your Doylestown apartment kitchen can bring some romance to an otherwise utility area. Adding warm-colored vases or canisters are a nice touch to counters.

The Arts in Allentown, Pa

Well, at this time of year boredom can set in as you live in your Allentown apartment, but we have artistic news for you…The Allentown Art Museum, located on 5th Street offers a refreshing change of view, especially if you are into art.  The museum was founded in 1934 by noted Pennsylvania painter and illustrator, Walter Emerson Baum.  Here you can see collections of European art, American art, and textiles.  Escape from your Allentown apartment and view the museum’s recent expansion, where classrooms and more gallery space was added, as well as a cafe, expanded gift shop, and an all new glass facade on the 5th Street side. This attraction boasts of visitors from many areas of Pennsylvania, including Doylestown, Reading, and Bethlehem.

Also now part of the Museum is the Baum School of Art, a non-profit community art school where you can spend some evenings out of your Allentown apartment and take a class. They offer over 200 for children, teens and adults.  Come and join this wonderful community.

Your musical intuition that tells you to get out of your Allentown apartment and listen to some classical live music will lead you to the Allentown Symphony Hall.  This Lehigh Valley performing arts center hosts the Allentown Symphony Orchestra where it performs its seasonal concert productions.  You can find many shows and events, including family and musical education events here that will give you something to do outside your Allentown apartment.  Check out the Allentown Symphony for more information.
