Red orange and chartreuse with crisp white
I've been working in Stamford for almost 2 years now and one of the best Connecticut "finds" I've learned about is a shop called Dovecote in Westport. Don't ask me where exactly that is, all I know is Connecticut is a big rectangle and I go to the bottom left corner of it 5 days a week. But between the published pictures of their projects in more local magazines and these images from their site, I'm inspired to make the trip.
I've noticed a couple of common themes in their design that work well for most interiors.
-Neutral but rich backgrounds in olive, charcoal and tan
-Symmetrical furniture and accessory arrangement (note the first picture in particular)
-Variety of textures. This picture has stone, metal, silk and canvas
-Great use of accessories to repeat a color story and theme
