Why live primarily in a safe atmosphere? We aren’t talking daggers and swords, just a little funk and artistic inspiration to live your life in an asymmetrical perspective. While symmetry can be beautiful, the imperfect characteristics of nature are also beautiful.
Don’t be afraid of reaching out to your “artsy side”, let it scream! The therapeutic nature of creating or being in a space that offers an artistic and vibrant experience can be more vitalizing than your yoga class. The same way your rosy cheeks appear after a vigorous workout, remind yourself of that energy by adding these accents to your bedroom!
Not only will these orange and red accents exhilarate you, introduce a playful pattern on the wall like this grey and white scaly wallpaper. Instead of a color accent wall, go for a wallpaper that is fun and asymmetrical. This reminds you that no one’s life is perfect, and no one’s beauty is symmetrical.
Who said the brightest kitchens are all white? The most eye-catching kitchens offer a little zest! This kitchen design offers a variety of details, from the floor to the walls.
The Herringbone Porcelain Wood Tiles look stellar when paired with the smaller Herringbone Mosaic repeated on the backsplash, but the mint that steals the show would be the bright yellow finish on the range! Some may be fearful of such a bright color, but the subdued look of the grey cabinets with a blue undertone anchor this entire look. The simplicity of the break between the patterned floor and backsplash creates separate focal points and flow throughout the kitchen. Spice up your life, Lemon Zest Style!
Here is a little summery sweet Color Inspiration that will get you craving Citrus & Turquoise for your next remodel! Ask us how you can accomplish this watery tile makeover in this pattern, or how you can create a similar effect with two shades of the same color. Indulge in a little pop of Citrus, whether you splash this tangy color on your mirror frame or accessorize with bathroom towels or a pretty little vase.
Don’t be afraid of color, especially when these natural colors will compliment your skin tone, making getting ready in the morning feel like you are in the Caribbean! Besides, a little extra Vitamin C will help you get through the winter months.
While we are shivering in our boots as we brave the cold, a glimpse of sunny Santorini, Greece melts the icy winter days away. Step into a little paradise everyday with our New Odyssey Frosted Glass and Riva Del Mar Rock Mosaics. These freshwater blues will have you singing a new tune. A sound quite similiar to a summer breeze.
Cool blues look stellar with Carrara, and add a little stylized twist of Grecian style with lush embroidered towels and White accents like the local rooftops. Now that you can almost smell the salt air, jump on board with this Santorini Style!
What is sexier than a lady in red? From Audrey Hepburn, to Sophia Loren, to Julia Roberts, all have surpassed our Red Carpet expectations. Despite the style of the dress, their confidence exudes when wearing red. Red makes us feel powerful, romantic, and effortlessly beautiful.
A couple of Red Carpet Beauties may be new on the scene, but their daring dresses are a couple of my favorite Red Hot Picks at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. Jennifer Lawrence from Silver Linings Playbook looks crazy gorgeous and confident in her Red Dior a-line gown, accented with a modernized metallic Gold belt. Zoey Deschanel from The New Girl dazzles us in a Retro Red Oscar de la Renta ballgown paired with her classic Pearl Necklace and matching bracelet.
We all have been down the path of discovering what we want out of life, and where our passions lie. Some of us are still figuring it out, and some of us may not have encountered this obstacle. Instead of looking at self discovery as an obstacle, embrace the fact that none of us truly have it figured out, but we can tell you what we like, and what we love.
Take this amazing bathroom for example. This bathroom caught my eye because I love the Herringbone Pattern, and I love sharp contrasting details. Then I got to wondering, who lives here? Gwen Stefani? Surely looks like her style, and if so, her Designer hit it on the head with this one! Not only can you imagine this sweet pad as Gwen’s, you notice how the Designer paid attention to every detail which creates harmony, and incorporates the client’s interests and style. This is Doing What You Love.
Whether you want to take on a project at home, or explore a new career, if you can sleep sound at night and wake up happy, you have discovered your path. Not to say your passion will cause stress and headaches…it will, but despite the
trouble effort it takes to get there you will discover your time spent was worth it. That is all that matters.
