So many of us fear using color in our homes, while many of us dress in a variety of colors to uplift our moods, or to express how we feel. Celebrate color in other multitudes of life, like this Color-Spiration Herringbone Ceramic Floor! The range of colors offer an unexpected surprise when you open the bathroom door.
We all live to be young, but we do not have to let our 20 something selves totally leave the building. Layering colors through our clothing ensemble is the same concept as layering colors in your home. Use complimentary colors or hues with the same saturation and vibrancy. This colorful floor would be a prime example of an uptown loft. Bold statement, subtle walls. You do not even notice the walls, so do not distract from the playful pattern on the floor.
The same concept should flow throughout your living space. Subtle walls, subdued floor, and pops of color through your furniture and accessories. Allow for one patterned item (Missoni Pouf) in this space, and keep the clusters of every other item a solid color. While you do not need to incorporate every single color of the rainbow, stick to 3 colors or 3 shades of the same color. Baby steps.
I hope you are willing to relinquish your neutral state of mind, and discover Color-Spiration!

Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth. Start fresh this Spring with one of the most rejuvenating colors of the season! Spring Green adds life to your space, and this Patio remodel is a funky spin on Springtime at it’s best!
This Patio includes everything you may need for a Girl’s get together, or a relaxing space to unwind at the day’s end. These creative Green Turf Chairs offer texture, and make quite the statement! Spring Green looks best on it’s own, but looks stunning and classy when mixed with Black & White Accents.
Add Black & White Throw pillows to create a plush experience, while the Outdoor Curtains create privacy and shade. If you do not have a Green Thumb, gather a few simplistic and structural pots, and add succulents and long grass. These beauties are easy to care for, and do not require a lot of maintenance. Not only will the plants add life to your space, you have created an amazing gathering space that you can actually enjoy outdoors!
While some of you may be planning exotic vacations in the near future, many of us will live vicariously through your vacay photos on Facebook. You can choose not to do something about it, or create your own exotic space at home! We offer a variety of collections that will suit your exotic taste!
I am loving this Fan Shape as a mosaic for your bathroom floor, or as an accent for your backsplash. The Carrara Marble Fan Mosaic looks amazing with shades of blue, due to the cool grey undertones. To add a few colorful accents, look for an authentic looking Moroccan Sideboard or Dresser. Turn your new find into your bathroom vanity, and opt for a simplistic sink and fixture to let this hand-painted beauty speak for itself.
Take down the wall to wall mirror, and find a complimentary shaped mirror. Combined with Moroccan inspired pendants or sconces, your exotic bathroom escape awaits you!
Classic looks do not always mean “boring”. While many Classic Styles are simplistic, you can mix Classicism with a Stylistic approach, and then you have an Eclectic look that is fresh and funky! I am loving this Trio Color Combination of Midnight Blue, Mustard, and Patriotic Red!
The Midnight Blue & Mustard Polka Dot Wallcovering creates dimension, and perfect for a small space where every other finish is kept crisp. The fun and funky is brought into this space with bold and graphic patterns that compliment each other. From the Mustard & Silver Trellis Wallcovering on a canvas behind the bed, to the Ikat Pattern on the throw pillows, mixed with a striped rug may sound like a hot mess, but this is an example of staying true to your color palette.
You can mix and match patterned items by grounding them with neutrals. Ensuring White & Grey in the space through bedding and wall paint will allow your color palette to SNAP, CRACKLE, POP! Putting a room together is just like a Science Experiment, once you have all the right elements together, you have perfect Chemistry.
When the Songbirds are in full swing and daffodils are blooming, it is a sign that Spring is upon us! When I think of Springtime, I think of my go-to favorites. Sinatra and Floral Arrangements go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly, so get your phonograph ready and let your hands do all the talking!
Trimming Cherry Blossoms and arranging them in a simple tall vase makes for an excellent table arrangement. Add in a few smaller arrangements in Mason Jars, and voila, the easiest pretty little party table you ever did see! If you are looking to jazz up your living space with some Springtime action, Hyacinths offer the most amazing aroma that Glade cannot recreate. Pick up the bulbs from your local nursery, and swap the ugly plastic container for colored glass. Springtime blossoms that also offer a lovely aroma are Freesias and Tulips, and my favorite monochromatic arrangements offer just that!
What better place to start looking for more inspiration than your own garden. Yard clippings and native blossoms make for elegant and whimsical arrangements, and better yet, FREE! Get started on your own Garden Party, but don’t forget the Rat Pack and let your floral romance begin!
