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.


Plaid, It’s Not Just for Christmas Anymore!

I know what you’re thinking…red and green plaids for Christmas, classic tartan plaid skirts that remind you of high school and somber plaids for the conservative banker look! If you were expecting this post to be old school, think again!

Plaid is a new modern and one of the hottest looks around for fall. Designers have rebranded plaid and we are seeing it pop up on the runways and in unexpected ways for home décor.

The key to the new plaid is how and where it is used. We especially love plaids in shades of black and white, blues and grays which mix well with a variety of decors. Plaids are showing up unexpectedly on mid-century benches, classic Parsons desks and Eames-style chairs. Plaids give a classic twist and bring warmth to even the most modern interiors.

On Madison has compiled some of our fave plaid looks for Fall that have us channeling our inner banker gone wild!

2017 Design Trend: Butterflies

A very happy New Year to all our lovely readers. As we always do annually, we’d like to start 2017 off with a bang by introducing the top design trends for the new year. From fashion to interiors and beyond, we have a long list of everything that’s going to be hot this year. We will explore each bullet point on our list one-by-one to get a closer look at the potential behind each one.

To start, we’re delving into the beautiful world of butterflies. A major hit on the runway and interiors, butterflies are fluttering their way into 2017 and we welcome them gladly. We’re loving the surreal, whimsical symbolism the butterfly brings. Major brands (think Dior and Christian Lacroix)  have done an excellent job of taking the iconic insect and elevating it in ultra chic, contemporary ways. From photo-realistic wallpapers to embroidery, appliqué, and taxidermy, these examples show how easy it is to incorporate this 2017 trend into the wardrobe or home.
