Celebrating San Francisco Fashion and Design

In the spirt of #NYFW we’re celebrating some of San Francisco's festive fashion. Last month, Sherry attended Fog Design + Art opening gala wearing a stunning lavender Grecian dress. And for the ASID Northern California holiday costume party, Sherry won best dressed for her crystal studded outfit. From art fairs to runways to home decor — pattern, color and streamlined silhouettes will dominate this year’s residential interior design schemes.

Incorporating Pantone Color of the Year in Residential Design

Does the number 16-1548 mean anything to you? It’s the Pantone 2019 Color of the Year, Living Coral, a warm and subtle shade of orange with golden undertones. We embraced this color for our Great Exploration Kid’s Bedroom — using Calico Aurora wallpaper and emphasizing the calming tone with a Kyle Bunting hide rug patterned in darker hues. We dabbled with its color wheel neighbor for a client’s master bedroom. And in 2019, we’ll be on the hunt for new ways to use this vibrant hue in our residential interior design projects.

New York Fashion Week

Throwback Thursday.  Sherry Hope-Kennedy attended designer’s Zang Toi fashion show during New York Fashion Week. His Spring 2019 couture collection was a tribute to Yves Saint Laurent (Toi traveled to the YSL Museum in Marrakech for his inspiration). Vivid colors and clean silhouettes dominated his runway. We spied shades of purple and what looked like Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018, Ultra Violet. Designers are influenced by all they see around them including fashion. Interior designers draw on the trends and colors as the season changes. Fashion and interiors are always evolving.
