Bespoke Abode owner in current issue of Martha's Vineyard Home and Garden Magazine!

Martha's Vineyard Magazine called on our senior designer Liz Stiving-Nichols for insight on using color in non traditional ways......

Liz Stiving-Nichols, owner of Martha's Vineyard Interior Design in Vineyard Haven, advises that homeowners start with a neutral base to ground the living area.  "It doesn't have to be white or tan," she says.  "It can be navy blue.  Then add a chartreuse to contrast the navy".  A punch of vivid color can be pulled in with accents, pillows, or artwork."  Liz says she likes to use what she calls "the perennial elements of the site," such as the view, the water, or wildflowers in the garden, for instance, as a starting point for the palette.  "Then turn it up a notch" she says, by using different values of the colors that are outside the house. 
"Color," she sums up, "should be a true reflection of the owners lifestyle and personality".

As a designer on Martha’s Vineyard, Liz Stiving-Nichols has brought beauty to her fair share of bright, sunny spaces. “I see more screen porches than sunrooms,” she says, “but they can certainly be designed with a similar approach.”
