Anyone who knows me well, knows that I like color, all color. I enjoy creating muted and softly hued spaces for my clients, as I truely savor those environments, however, I currently live in shades of chartreuse, fushia, coral, tangerine tempered by large doses of white and icey blue.
This is why Annie Selke's collection for Vanguard Furniture has captured my attention. The colors in the fabrics have the punch that I gravitate toward, however, she masterfully balances that energy by maintaining simpler lines in her casegood and upholstery pieces. The fantastic part about the collection is while yes it's the perfect ying and yang, bright with quiet. You have the ability to create a room that has a lot of ying (bright) or one that is totally yang (quiet) by coupling the clean lined pieces with a softer fabric palatte if you choose.
Here are some of my favorite pieces.

The nice part about the demilune above is that you can purchase two and create a small round table when you have extra guests. Or flank each end of the dining table below and create a large oval.
