Color Envy

Making Us Blush!

Nude, apricot, peach, blush: whatever name you give it, we’re talking about that sultry shade of pink that just says “luscious.” Blush is hotter than ever right now and designers are showcasing pink in everything from upholstery to wall color.

We’re loving blush paired with gutsy colors like charcoal, black and garnet and metals like copper. Mix blush with lots of texture like fur, cerused woods and leather to prevent the room from looking too feminine. We love using blush on unexpected pieces like a blush velvet on a mid-century Italian lounge chair.

On Madison has put together a variety of looks using blush that will bring a little sexy back to your space.


2017 Design Trend: Navy is the new Black

Continuing with our 2017 Design Trend series, we’d like to talk NAVY BLUE. Is it the new black? If runways and interiors are any indication, blue is the hue you should be looking to add to your repertoire for 2017.

There are plenty of ways to make blue more than just a trend this season. Classic, cool, and confident, deep blue navy looks right at home on structured sofas while adding a depth and luxuriousness that black sometimes cannot achieve. Deep blue walls are an elegant way to add drama to any living area, and if you’re uncomfortable with taking the plunge, try an accent wall or even half of a wall for a modern twist.

However you style it, navy is a classic that is here to stay not just for 2017. We’d love to hear how you’re using blue in your interiors, let us know in the comments below. On Madison has compiled some inspiration eye-candy on how to work blue into your home or wardrobe. And stay tuned for more 2017 design trends coming soon on the blog as well.

Blue Mood

Blue&WhiteI recently visited a local, not-to be mentioned-in-this-blogpost showcase house. Although blues were a strong color theme throughout the house, they were often paired with insipid pinks, granny florals and other current design trends that diluted the crisp, dramatic impact that blues can really make.

Blues remind us of sky and sea so they are often showcased in beach houses. Or, when blue and white Chinoiserie is used, for example, blue can remind us of upper crust English drawing rooms or swanky Palm Beach manses.

But blues can feel decidedly modern as well especially when they are used in new and unexpected ways. On Madison has assembled a collage of blue and white, re-defined with modern interpretations. Bye bye, boring blues.
