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.

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.

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.

Designing the perfect office space, even if its in the  master bedroom suite a desk at home increases productivity and offers an extra space for electronics. 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. Living room luxury furniture has a softer appeal with throw pillows and blankets decorating the space a desk contrasts these elements in a modern yet professional sense.

Desk 3The most obvious place to incorporate a desk is in your home office. La Maison Interiors houses a multitude of luxury furniture to choose from in all kinds of styles. Whether you’re searching for a more traditional desk in a gorgeous warm wood finish or an item more modern that utilizes mixed materials we have options for you! 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.

The choice you make for your desk should be both functional and stylish! 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.
