ALOHA: How to Decorate with Pineapples by Shanna Shryne

Pineapples

- fierce on the outside and sweet on the inside - 

These tropical, spiky trendsetters are having their moment. A sign of welcoming, this symbol of hospitality in home décor dates back to colonial times…

and pause…time for a brief history lesson ladies and gentlemen…

The pineapple then became a symbol of luxury and was considered the height of extravagant hospitality...like Great Gatsby Style. Because of the rarity of this fruit, the pineapple was used in entertaining for table décor and then cut up and eaten for dessert.

So take a look at my tropical inspiration and some of my favorite ways to use pineapple in your home.

Get your forks ready....Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pinkies up....Pineapple Margaritas

Time to chill....like this pineapple below...with these Watermelon Pineapple Ice Pops

AND remember to be a pineapple. 

Stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside. 

 

Life In Color by Shanna Shryne

What's your favorite color? I can't decide this season!  I'm LOVING mixing all the colors this SPRING - the EMERALD greens from Palm Leafs, the HOT PINKS from Flamingos, the YELLOWS from Pineapples + Bananas...the brighter the better! 

 I love decorating with crisp bold statement colors. Whether it's a new wall color or as simple as fresh flowers or a colorful book or pillow, adding color to a room is an easy way to update any space. 

I've pulled together my favorite images that has inspired the direction of my showroom and a few ideas on how to add some vibrant splashes into your kitchen, living and outdoor spaces. 

I think a trip to Palm Springs is in order!  - S.

What's In My Beach Bag? by Shanna Shryne

I'd like to think I'm what you'd call a Professional Beach Go-er. I've tried and tested just about every beach-centric accessory...so it's only prudent that I share with you my most coveted beach bag AND it's contents. With less than 90 days until the first day of Summer, it's time to do some shopping and get your butt to the beach (...& for me, also the gym)! Enjoy!

Pantone Color(s) of the Year by Shanna Shryne

Slide01.jpg

Move over Marsala....for the first time in the history of color, Pantone has selected two colors.

ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY

A softer take on color, these two inspire peace, balance, and tranquility.  According to the brand, they also transcend cultural and gender blurs.

I love the combination of these two colors. The warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue demonstrate an inherent balance. These shades evoke a type of sunset that makes you stop in your tracks.

Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. It is a great color to mix with neutrals and a black and white color palette.

Serenity is weightless and airy, like a blue sky, bringing feelings of relaxation even in turbulent times. It is still a color that is growing on me and I have found the conceptual images below as ways to bring these two color palettes into your home and decor.

atomic number 29 by Shanna Shryne

If silver isn’t your thing and you’re ready to go beyond gold, test your mettle with this metal.

Copper has been historically used for the conduction of heat and electricity, which limited its in-house presence to pipes, pots, and pans. But lately, designers are using this metal to add some shine to furniture, lighting fixtures, and accessories.

50ddf997d58692ecd2732e8892d10c9f.jpg

The atomic number 29 creates an atmosphere of warmth and chic. Copper colors include many various bright shades and pastel tones. From rich orange, yellowish pinks to soft honey and dark reddish brown colors, these tones create sleek and modern updates to all styles of interiors. 

Copper creates gorgeous contrasts with cold silver and bright golden colors, rustic wood and textured surfaces, painted walls and leather. All shades of copper bring warmth and comfort. Here’s our collection of beautiful interiors and accessories which demonstrate how to add copper accents to a room and give your home a modern edge.

SHAPE UP Your Home by RAC

BRING ON THE GEOMETRY!

....pentagons, hexagons, octagons, triangles and more....

We love the idea of incorporating geometric elements into your home. Whether your choose basic shapes like triangles or complex polyhedrons, using these classic shapes in design add a sleek and symmetrical simplicity to any room. 

                Incorporating geometric shapes into interiors can be difficult and can easily overwhelm a space. However, here are a few of my ideas on how to easily include geometric decor and patterns into your home. 

WALLS

If you want a certain wall or space to pop, a geometric wall is the way to go. Geometric wallpaper and patterns add rhythm and interest to a living space. Whether it's a wall paper, painted wall pattern, or tile, adding a simple geo shape is intriguing and captivating. 

FURNITURE

Geometric furniture make an ideal statement for a variety of design styles. While some people prefer to choose pieces of furniture based on comfort and practicality, others may opt for something more visually compelling. Either way, a bright, color geometric furniture piece will be the statement piece of any room. When adding this, keep your walls, flooring, and other decorative elements simple and sleek so the furniture can take center stage. 

LIGHTING

Installing new lights are a great way to bring geometry into a room without going shape-crazy. Establishing a geometric motif with a pendant from a high ceiling sets the tone for the entire space. Similar to an angular table lamp which adds a delicate setting to any space. 

FLOORS

Repeating patterns of circles and squares have been used in flooring design for hundreds of years. Whether its an area rug or tile, geometric flooring adds an ornamental statement and a great impression to your space. Here are some ideas of using timeless shapes in our modern world.

ACCENTS

Sometimes a little goes a long way with bold geometric patterns. If you are looking for a easy, low-key approach to adding geometric decor, start small. Throw pillows, planters, or hardware updates will step your space up a notch.

The beauty of geometric decor is its versatility and ease of incorporating shapely pieces into your space. Not sure on where to start? Start with a small tray and work your way up! When it comes to shapes, it only takes one to steal the show and become your favorite piece. 

Home Tour | Manhattan Beach House by RAC

Not quite traditional, not quite contemporary. This may be the simplest explantation of transitional design. Transitional design can take on a wide range of sub-styles as a result of unique combinations of inspirations and influences. It is a harmonious fusion of elements - a mix of traditional and contemporary furniture, materials, and fabrics. 

Our most recent project in Manhattan Beach is a harmonious fusion of these elements. It's fresh, tailored, and timeless. 

Authentic Moroccan pendants were designed as a strong design element for the high ceilings in this large living space. A stone fireplace and linen wallpaper add natural details. 

Natural elements such as stone, metal, and wood are good choices for transitional kitchen design.

A chevron wallpaper In a natural wood texture was chosen to cover the family room walls. This provides a subtle modern flair and interest in an otherwise traditional styled room. The wood beams were stained a rich and dark espresso which contrast nicely with the white-washed ceiling planks.

When designing a transitional style home, start with a neutral color palette such as taupe, tan, and vanilla. Combining those colors with a dark brown, gray, and black add depth to a room. 

In the dining room, a dramatic chandelier in a modern style was chosen for it’s eye-catching design.  It reflects off the inlaid stone table.  Again, the chevron pattern is carried through out the home, as seen here in the wall tiles surrounding the dining room.  

The master suite was designed for elegance & soft details.  The curved headboard, light fixture and fabric patterns add minimalist accents that are soft and bring a natural effect into the room. 

Modern and clean finishes such as the marble tile & polished nickel fixtures were chosen for a spa-like atmosphere.  

The reiteration of the chevron pattern ties the spaces together. Modern light fixtures add an eye catching design element in this young girls room. 

Map wallpaper was chosen for this world traveling family.  The stately chair with natural hide interior add texture & sophistication.  Again, note the reiteration of the chevron pattern on the tiled floor. 

A cement tile was chosen in place of a traditional area rug.  Custom built-ins provide amble storage for a collection of books and worldly artifacts. 

Transitional Design embraces the combination of modern and traditional. It fuses these styles seamlessly to provide a look to fit many discerning tastes.

2015 Color Of The Year by RAC

The change of the year means NEW trends, colors, styles, and patterns. To kick off 2015, we bring you the color of the year, MARSALA.  A naturally robust and earthy red-brown hue, this color is warm and welcoming, yet elegant and sophisticated.  

From its red-brown roots, the color Marsala is very adaptable and is well suited to both feminine and masculine interiors. 

Due to the deepness of this hue, it is often best to introduce this color through accents in interiors. This color looks especially rich when used on textured surfaces such as rugs and upholstered pieces.

Whether Marsala is used on flat or textured surfaces, the hue pairs well with neutrals such as warm taupes and grays. The color also works well with golden yellows and vibrant blues because of it burnished undertones.

We've rounded up our favorite marsala-colored items to show you just how stunning the color of the year is. 

Happy New Year! 

A House in Black by Shanna Shryne

As interior designers, we love to seek inspiration in all styles, trends, and classic historical aesthetics. Halloween is a great time of year to bring focus on a darker side of design...especially Gothic Style. 

This style dates back to the middle ages and throughout history has proven to be a strong influence in design. Originating in France, this style was built with a purpose and built to last. It spread in the United States and has outlasted the test of time still appearing in many modern day interiors. 

Gothic style is all about the grandeur and drama. It brings ornate lines and dark color schemes which are very popular this time of year. 

By incorporating gothic design touches into modern day spaces, you can bring a unique look without fully committing to this bold style. Dark, textured materials, arches and symmetrical architecture all are ways to execute the medieval aesthetic. 

In the spirit of Halloween, take a look at Shanna Shryne Designs’ favorite Halloween inspired furniture. 

Happy Halloween from Shanna Shryne Design!

Back To The Basics by Shanna Shryne

Black and White is a timeless combination.  It's a pair that works well together and leaves open the opportunity for complimenting items and accessories in a range of shapes, textures, and patterns, or a pop of color like... 

We love this black, white and gold color palette from a recent project. To keep this design visually interesting, we incorporated different accessories, materials, and fabrics into this sophisticated living room. Velvet Tree Wallcovering acts as an extension to the gorgeous landscape of Palos Verdes California.

Geometric, gold wallpaper and a textured gold wallcovering on the ceiling, envelope you in this elegant, glitzy powder bath.

 We are ecstatic about the art from Citizen Atelier. Art gives breath to a home and offers a reflection of what you love, your vision of the world, your hopes and dreams. 

Interested in this chic look?!? Here's a sneak peak into some of the new items we'll be carrying in our new showroom.

Summer Retreat: Outdoor Spaces by RAC

Our infatuation with outdoor decor and spaces has been growing lately... Especially if the space invites fun, bright colors mixed with natural elements.

We incorporated these oversized pebbles from EIS Studio into a recent project. They offer extra seating and look really cool too! 

We love the look of this outdoor hanging egg chair and the unique weaving details. It is absolutely perfect for cozying up with your favorite book. 

We have a craving for a worldly beachy escape... or at least transforming our own outdoor space into one. 

Even small spaces can be turned into sanctuaries, like our creation here for a client. 

Roof top patios are ideal for watching sunsets. Adding fire elements create ambience and comfort that make you want to spend every evening enjoying summer.
