Summer Improvements for Your Master Bedroom

As we start to unwind from our busy schedules for the summer season, there is no where we’d rather be than our special space. The master bedroom is where we go to relax and enjoy those lazy summer afternoons. When done right, the master bedroom can be made into a stress free oasis. Setting the the tone can be a challenge, but with the help of La Maison’s award winning interior design team, you can have gorgeous summer improvements to your special space. Create a home away from home feel with our lush fabrics, vibrant prints and bold headboards to compliment any space.

When improving your bedroom for the summer, color scheme is the bread and butter to creating the perfect look. This is the time to kick back and enjoy some summer relaxation! Lighter colors tend to make any space appear larger and more open. This also helps to infuse a calm and luxurious feel to your bedroom this summer. Variations of warm greens, greys and browns will bring about a romantic ambiance without over-using light, feminine pinks and reds.

La Maison’s beautiful area rugs could be the perfect pop of summer color your master bedroom needs.

When you have relaxation on your mind, creating a cozy space to a larger bedroom is what our designers know to do best. Nothing says cozy summer night like curling up with a book in a separate sitting area across a luxurious ottoman or on a fluffy sitting chair. While a sitting area is idyllic for a summer hangout, you never want to over-fill a space. Remember to shop for accessories and accents that will be the right size for your master bedroom, while also bringing luxury to your home.

Lighting is a crucial essential to any room, but in your master bed, you want to exude a charming warmth that will separate it from all other rooms. For an Arizona summer, a soft but prominent look is what we recommend. Fine lines, and gorgeous sleek task lamps add a comfortable and visually appealing look to your sitting area. You can hang lighting to help to create ambient looks, as well as overhead flush-mounted lighting which you can find in many styles our designers provide.

It’s time to start entertaining for the summer! How are you going to keep your favorite mojito concoction cool during the summer though? We have the perfect solution.

Bar carts are dimensional, useful and come in all types of styles. Go rustic with distressed wood or classic with warm metal and brush nickel finish. Make it easy to take the party anywhere with a wheeled bar cart so your guests don’t have to get up for their next drink. We’ll help you find the perfect bar cart for your needs whether it’s added storage or a fancier look and feel, La Maison Interiors is here to help you find the perfect piece for your next cocktail party.

Bar carts remind us of Old Hollywood, where simple sophistication and gold rimmed martini glasses touch the lips of men and women who don’t have a care in the world. Add a touch of formality to your space with an attractive luxury furniture piece that is versatile and useful. No matter the decor in your home, there’s a bar cart to match. La Maison Interiors hosts a collection of pieces from regional artisans to nationally acclaimed designers.

Stay at Home For the Party

If a bar cart is not your style, create a space to entertain during the warmer months, sheltered from the sunshine. Get creative with negative space by utilizing pieces of furniture that might not necessarily be a “bar” in the traditional sense. Using various luxury furniture pieces to create a bar area is a great alternative for those who love to entertain. That being said, let’s look at some best ways to create your preferred ambiance that speaks to your personal style.

IMG_2404

Staying at home to enjoy a well-made cocktail starts with a fabulous home bar design. Picking a design that works for you is key to pinpointing your needs. If you want to embody a sophisticated look and feel ambient or recessed lighting is the way to go. Add architectural features like stone, warm wood or marble to add texture. Do you consider yourself a connoisseur or wine and spirits? Display your favorites behind the bar to give guests a look into what you will be serving.

We all tend to live busy lifestyles with hardly any time for leisure, but with an at home bar makes it easy to enjoy a cocktail at home. Home bars offer a unique solution to the active lifestyles we live. Create the perfect home bar with the right lighting, seating setup and entertainment area by starting with your ‘must-haves’. Barstools work best for an open, airy and casual setup while leather high chairs offer a more sophisticated look. Lighting is key to creating the desired ambiance of your choice. Going more formal? Choose recessed lighting. Is modern and modular more your style? Pendant lighting with a chrome or simple white finish might just be what you’re looking for.

However you choose to entertain this summer, remember La Maison Interiors has the perfect piece for your home. Our interior designers will help you decide how to creatively use the space for an at home bar.

Luxurious Master Bedroom Updates

bed1

The most important room in the home is the bedroom. Decorating the master bedroom to fit your personal style is a must.  We spend more time relaxing in the master bedroom than any other room in the home.  Adding comfortable pillows, plush fabrics and a luxurious headboard will instantly change your space for the better. Color is key too! Don’t go too bold with jewel tones, rather stick to softer hues that fit both a masculine and feminine feeling. Creating the perfect master bedroom is easy to do over the weekend, and we’ll show you how to do it.

We love to begin with color. Choose a palette that fits your personal style, and keep in mind the size and shape of your master bedroom. Larger spaces tend to feel airy and open, and using cooler colors can make the space feel less intimate and cozy. Do you want the space to feel more modern and clean or cozy and comfortable? Warmer colors tend to feel more feminine, yet also exude a romantic mood. Take advantage of various shades of grey for a soothing contemporary aesthetic. Using the right grey, whether it has warm or cool undertones is always a good choice for a master bedroom as it lends to both masculine and feminine aesthetics. bed3

Another easy way to incorporate color without repainting the walls is with a luxury area rug. Also, the human eye groups luxury furniture together when it sits atop an area rug. If you have a larger master bedroom, and want to add visual interest to your space create a cozy look and feel with a separate sitting area. When relaxation is on your mind, but going to bed is not a reading chair is a perfect segway. Make sure to shop for a luxurious ottoman to rest your feet on that is both soft and comfortable. Make sure to purchase the right sized rug for the space, b by taking measurements to better understand the dimensions of your space. Interior design rules say furniture should sit on the perimeter of the rug to make the space feel larger.

Interior Design Ideas: The Powder Room

bathroom

Even the smallest room in your home deserves updating every now and then. Our team of interior designers have simple tips to follow to make your powder room look and feel larger instantly. Color is your best friend, and using it to your advantage will have a big impact on even a small space. The powder room is likely the smallest space in your home, besides a closet or storage space. The difference is guests and family members actively use this space. Ideally, enjoying the ambiance of a powder room sets the tone for the remainder of your home. This is a perfect opportunity to take a chance with design. We suggest a bold and daring shade such as deep blue or purple. We say, take a leap of faith with a color palette and you won’t regret it. There are many ways to tone down a rich bold shade with the right accessories.

Forget old and tired sand, beige and off-white for color and opt for something a little more drastic. Bold hues like navy, chocolate brown, rich maroon and even black works wonderfully. The reason these darker hues work is because small spaces offer something larger spaces do not, which is creative freedom. Too much of a bold color can be overwhelming and often makes a space feel smaller. As any interior designer would say, the key to a perfect space is lighting. Add the right fixtures and the entire space will change instantly.

Ideally, you want to add visual interest in a small way to the powder room. Replacing the bathroom countertop in a unique material such as refinished concrete or imported granite with accent flecks to compliment a color palette changes a space for the better. Tile backsplash as an art related project rather than a functional addition can be very successful. Updated fixtures that fit your personal style add ambiance to a powder room. Pendant lighting or a simple yet modern chandelier will give the space some height as well.  If there is a small window in the powder room use it to your advantage and shop luxury fabrics at La Maison! Our collection of fabrics range from modern, geometric and modular to floral and fabulous.

luxury mirror bathroomPick your favorite piece of art that is both intriguing and colorful! One or two pieces of art makes the space feel hospitable and welcoming. Choose a mirror you love! It should reflect your personal style and the look and feel of the space. We love mirrors that have embellishments or utilize a beautiful finish for extra sparkle.  Offer your best soaps and luxurious hand towels. Since powder rooms are mainly used by guests it’s important to add personal touches that make guests feel as if they’ve stepped into a hotel bathroom. Gold, brass and brushed nickel appear soft and welcoming while also adding warmth to the space. Soft and plush bath rugs give the appearance of luxury while also maintaining the color palette of your choice. Whether you’re ready to completely remodel the powder room, or upgrade the color scheme, La Maison Interiors in Scottsdale is here to guide you on your journey to a stylish powder room

Simple & Stylish: Infuse Modern Interior Design

Give your home the perfect touch of modern interior design with a touch of drama with geometric patterns prints, accessories and luxury decor.  Modular shapes, polygons and circles are classic and contemporary and appeal to a modern sense of design. There are so many avenues to walk when it comes to modern and modular design; wallpaper one wall in the kitchen for a stylish accent wall, replace tableware and decor accessories in bright vibrant hues in the entryway  or opt for chevron and vertical stripes, triangles or small pyramids as a wall design. Our team is here to help you blend your home’s design with the right accents pieces to turn your space into a modular masterpiece.

An impressive pillow with grey and yellow variationsWhen it comes to the kitchen, opt for a more dramatic effect with your backsplash! Use triangles, vertical stripes or horizontal tiles with an eye catching color palette to infuse shapes without going overboard. The best way add a dramatic effect is with bright colors. Don’t shy away from primary colors in the kitchen as it adds a cheerful aesthetic to a larger space. Especially if your kitchen is mainly white this is a perfect way to create a modular masterpiece. Include draperies that have ovals or or circles for a sophisticated inviting look and feel.

apple_vaseWe suggest gorgeous table and luxury decor accessories for the living room or home office. The hard edges of polygonal shapes suggest focus and hard work to keep you engaged despite being in the comfort of your own home. Bright colors add drama and grab guests attention in the family room; avoid muted or pastel as they appear flat rather than vibrant . Adding a centerpiece that uses forms from nature such as leaves, trees and organic lines appear softer to the eye. Adding a touch of drama to your coffee table is a perfect way to draw the eye into the center of the room. Choose a statement piece; when pairing items together ensure you arrange accessories in odd numbered groups to achieve a perfect balance. Organic forms and patterns are unique and eye catching to blend simplicity with versatility.

Why Don’t You Have a Reading Chair?

No matter what style of reading you prefer, may it be on a tablet or a classic paperback book, a reading corner provides ultimate relaxation. Your living room, office space or master bedroom is the perfect spot for a lovely arm chair, small side table, floor lamp and ottoman to escape the day’s stress. No matter what you read, everyone needs some R&R right at home.

FullSizeRenderThe living room is always a classic choice for a reading corner. Start with fabric to decide how you want to upholster your luxury furniture arm chair from La Maison Interiors. Our selection of plush and elegant armchairs and chaises will have you stuck at our showroom! We suggest including a bolster pillow for lumbar support in a solid fabric if your chair or chaise is a pattern or print. Include an ottoman that is comfortable and no wider than the chair/chaise to keep a balance between each piece. Shop the many luxury furniture pieces in our showroom, and try them out while you’re here. The perfect spot for a reading chair is closest to a fireplace (if you have one) or across from the established seating area. Create a space within the living room that feels separate, but still compliments the existing luxury furniture.

chair3In the master bedroom, we highly suggest a chaise longue. This is the best option for total relaxation. A chaise longue offers what armchairs do not, a spot for tired feet.  Include a bolster pillow here too, and a softer throw pillow to cozy up alongside at night. Not only does a chaise offer ultimate comfort, but it appears elegant and gorgeous alongside a king size bed. Place it in the corner of the room across from your bed to balance the space for an elegant look and feel. Include a blanket that adds texture to the chaise, and to keep warm at night despite the warm weather in Scottsdale there is nothing better than curling up with a soft blanket at night.  Make sure all fabrics chosen are plush, elegant and fit the existing aesthetic in your master bedroom.

Another perfect spot for a reading chair is in your home office. Although most homeowners associate a home office with after hours work, it could also be the most private place in your home. If your office is completely dedicated to you this is your golden ticket. Place an armchair on the other side of the room, across from the desk or behind it, to carve out a space within a space. Include an ottoman of course and a small end table to finish off the look. A floor lamp or desk lamp is key here so not to use overhead lighting late at night.chair1

Lighting is very important when it comes to curating the perfect reading corner. Choose a floor lamp that is adjustable in height and offers varied levels of dimming. You want to be able to see what you are reading at night, without it feeling to bright or fluorescent. Your eyes need rest, and a lamp that shines too much can be distracting. The many lovely floor lamps available at La Maison will surely have you walking out with a brand new piece that same day. The ottoman is key to finding ultimate relaxation in your space! Choose an ottoman that compliments your armchair’s fabric, and that feels comfortable to you. If you would like it to serve as a second table avoid pieces with a lot of bounce as you want to have a solid foundation for late night snacks and a drink. End tables are add dimension to a reading corner and add to the overall functionality of the space!

Have Fun With Florals at Home

We’re all about decorating with floral prints this season. From the many vibrant, fresh and modern renditions of classic prints seen in the past this year is a departure from the norm. Avoid washed out tones and dense patterns, and opt for freeform designs that offer a modern look and feel. When implemented correctly, it can have a profoundly positive effect on your home. We’re looking at the many ways to incorporate floral patterns at home from fabrics to centerpieces to wallpaper you won’t find a better source on how-to decorate with florals than from La Maison Interiors. 

floral pillowThe beauty of this print is the visual stimulation it provides. There are a variety of fresh, modern and appealing options to choose from! It’s best to go bold or pepper your space with it. Using floral excessively overpowers a space thus feeling old and tired. Contrary to most homeowner’s thinking, there are multiple materials available now.  Embroidered silk is a popular choice in luxury Scottsdale homes as it offers a clean aesthetic with a touch of femininity. Blue floral prints are popular as we don’t often find blue flowers in nature. Blue is also a cool, contemporary and gender neutral color. 

Knowing where to use this print can make or break a space. Using it sparingly, but strategically. Create a wow factor in the entryway of your home with one accent wall in gorgeous floral print wallpaper. Choose a wallpaper that is both visually stimulating and fitting to your personal style. Avoid dense floral prints as this can appear too busy and distracting! La Maison Interiors hosts a variety of contemporary styles to incorporate at home for a fresh look and feel. Incorporating this print in your home is a lot easier than you might think with the assistance of one of the top interior design teams in Scottsdale.

Century chaiseColor is everything! Avoid muted tones and shades at all costs! Even if you love pale pinks, blues and greens there are better ways to include these colors without overpowering a space with washed out tones. We suggest finding a fabric that uses pale tones as an accent color against a vibrant hue. By pairing two contrasting colors together you achieve a balanced look and feel. Most of the time, homeowners think to use floral in the kitchen and bedroom; although this is correct peppering the space with a statement chair and ottoman or gorgeous draperies as the focal point in the kitchen is the best way to go about it.

iStock_000039957226_LargeFloral works wonderfully with a neutral base. It brightens up a space instantly without feeling too feminine or outdated. Look for prints that are multi faceted to avoid monotony. A great way to do this is through geometric accents that frame the print. Do not let the fabric you choose sit in the background! Make it a focal point and it will be visually stunning; free form contemporary prints are very popular as they offer a clean departure from outdated, dense floral prints seen as youthful or child like. Custom solutions such as handpainted floral wallpaper is popular among homeowners. If you have a favorite antique fabric you want to recreate in your space this is the option for you.

However you want to incorporate floral, do it with care. Floral print is tricky and can look all wrong if not curated to perfection. Come into La Maison Interiors and work with a premier interior designer who will help you find the perfect floral print for your luxury Scottsdale home.

At the end of the day the last item on your list is to go back to work, but staying organized is key. Most homeowners enjoy having a desk at home because separating your work space from your personal space is key to a balanced lifestyle.

Desk 10Choose a desk in any room of your home is both useful and adds a sense of style to your home. In the kitchen, use a desk to organize your family! A desk in the kitchen also serves as a place to leave work items. It creates a separate space for you to decompress after arriving home to spend quality time with your family. Choose a desk with the existing design elements in your kitchen for a cohesive look and feel. Consider mixing materials to offer a modern appeal that’s also very stylish and trending. In the living room, a desk adds dimension against a sofa and arm chair.

When designing a home a office, think about how much space is available to you. Do you plan to work out of this office or simply use it to stay organized after work hours? We mention this because a desk should be functional yet stylish. If you require extra storage, but don’t want to sacrifice the look and feel for added drawer space we suggest purchasing baskets or installing shelves, or a filing system, to keep track of important documents and work related items.

Desk 7We have so many styles of desks you are sure to find a piece you absolutely adore! We suggest pairing a desk with a brand new chair that speaks to your personality. Every gorgeous desk purchase should be accompanied by a similar chair purchase! Shop feminine styles or go more masculine for that special man in your life with a classic dark wood desk paired with a leather arm chair subtly embellished with studs. Go bold and make the desk a focal point in your home office with a completely contemporary design that steers away from traditional wood or metal and echoes a stone-granite like appearance. Not only does this add grandeur to your home office, the natural curves are a really nice touch instead of harsh clean lines.

Factor in personal needs such as storage, desk space, height (make sure to sit down at the desk before purchasing) and of course the overall aesthetic.
