Color Palette: Black, White, and Mustard

I love the graphic, playful pattern on this strapless dress worn by a model at Bluepring 2011 Spotlight Singapore. Designed by Hansel, the dress features a mellow mustard-hued sash tie. You can easily translate this color scheme to a home look. Start with a black sofa, like the WIlliams-Sonoma Home Beverly Sofa ($3,200) in coal. Then, layer on a graphically patterned black and white rug. My favorite for the past few years has been the Design Within Reach Manuscrit Rug ($3,400). If that price is too steep for you (as it is for me), try this La Poeme Rug, which has a similar look for thousands of dollars less.


Add a yellow floor lamp or pendant lamp, like the Kartell Suspension Lamp ($270) to add a shot of color to the mix, and make sure to accent your space with yellow flowers like ranunculus or roses.
