Always on trend, Heather Clawson of Habitually Chic recently posted two stories about using orange - http://habituallychic.blogspot.com/2009/08/orange-you-glad-its-friday.html and http://habituallychic.blogspot.com/2009/08/more-orange.html.
For a local twist, Orange County interior designer, Natalie Umbert of atelier-natalie umbert was just featured in Riviera Interiors magazine in her fabulous orange living room.
Natalie also has a store on Pacific Coast Highway in the beach-chic town of Corona del Mar, which she doubles as a think tank and showroom for her fresh eye, her talent and her latest whims.
Here is a sneak peak at the story boards for her space. If you can't wait to see it at the 2009 Design Tour, you can find her at her Corona del Mar store - Atelier, a place she uses as a think tank and a laboratory to channel her creative energy.
We love her fearless use of color and her fresh take on design. Everything she does makes you want to move in!
More about Natalie Umbert and Atelier
Driven by her varied life, travel, and professional experiences, Natalie Umbert is known for her ability to arrive at something unique yet accessible through her thoughtful combination of influences, periods, color and texture. Umbert was raised in South Florida and attended Tufts University in Boston. After creative and wide-ranging professions in both the music and fashion industries and armed with nothing more than a few sketches and a lot of enthusiasm, Natalie decided to pursue her true passion and gained acceptance to the Parsons School of Design in New York. Following graduation, Natalie trained at the New York firm of Mariette Himes Gomez, gaining invaluable experience in the field of luxury design. Natalie subsequently worked for firms in Miami and Los Angeles, and opened her own firm, atelier natalie umbert, just after earning an MBA from the Merage School of business at the University of California, Irvine. http://www.atelierinteriordesign.com/
