Tangerine Dream

Colorful Ideas, Random
Orange you excited about the Pantone 2012 color of the year – Tangerine Tango? As a kid I always gravitated towards the orange-red crayon in the Crayola 64 box - thus, I was obviously excited to see that perfectly rich shade dubbed famous by Pantone this year. Tangerine Tango has been happily splashed all over the Spring 2012 fashion runways, hardware store’s paint aisles, and even the lipstick section in the drugstore. We’re thrilled to get into the Tango-ing spirit at Circle Furniture this year. Go for bold pieces, like the Nautilus Rug and Bella Chair, for a serious statement. Or you can tone down the tangerine a little bit with the earthy-orange Pippa Sofa, and intricate Deco Copper Rug. Whatever mood you go for, make sure to channel the…

A shout out to my friend Lis over at blanksmith for exposing me to this gem! I will leave it up to you the reader, shall we classify this as "design inspiration", "designers", "the fun report", or maybe just "colorful"? Read on and then talk amongst yourselves, well talk to me too, I would love to hear it. I recently visited my brother and his girlfriend in Philly (I will leave the who picked a better city to live in debate out of this). We sat on the famed rocky stairs and counted how many people, in the span of twenty minutes or so, ran up the stairs and finished the climb by jumping up and down and throwing a celebratory fist pump. We counted 30, and then a school bus…

Colorful Ideas: Winter White

Colorful Ideas
Had enough of the fluffy white stuff yet?  It's so pretty, right? Well, not so much after shoveling out my car week after week. Not after adding hours to my commute. Not after struggling to find a parking space every night on the street in Jamaica Plain. Ok, so we've had a ton of snow. The problem is, I still LOVE it. The excitement I feel when it starts coming down. The beauty of  winter white. We love it here at Circle Furniture too! It really does make such a quiet statement. Or does it?         Paired with the right pop of color white can be as off the charts as you want it to be.       Or white can be calming, perfect for sleepytime.…

Colorful Ideas: Mix n’ Match

Colorful Ideas, Design Inspiration
This kitchen is a great example of how you can use multiple colors without seeming chaotic. Don't shy away from mixing colors in one room.  By using different colors in the same tone, there is still harmony. In this case, the chairs are all the same design so there is even more cohesion.  (via Dwell Magazine)  By mixing and matching your chair choices, you can add loads of character. This room would seem far different with matching chairs, don't you think? Plus, the great thing about updating your chairs, is you can use the kitchen or dining room table you already have!
