This Fall’s Fashion is revolving around the many shades of Grey, and while the jury is still out on the infamous Christian Grey’s influence in color choice, Grey has been the new black for awhile now. The monochromatic look of an all Grey Scheme however looks fresh and sophisticated when pulled together.
This chic ensemble offers the many shades of Grey, while adding texture through the fabric, layers, and accents through metal work on the jewelry and shoes. You can also take cue from the latest Fall Trends by incorporating the same principles in your home decor. Be inspired by our Imperial Trellis Mosaic on your floor, and pair it with a Grey Vanity. Stay with Marble that offers Grey Tones such as our Calacatta and Carrara offerings for a more naturalistic and sophisticated look.
To find the most overlooked area in space, one would have to look up. The ceiling is a major opportunity to add interest, so forget looking straight ahead and consider all the elements around you. This Herringbone ceiling is reminiscent of French Herringbone flooring found in many Parisian flats. The texture added to the ceiling grounds the space while adding warmth to an all white kitchen. Not only is this custom space unique, it looks oh-so-glamorous!
I have always had a crush on Peacock Blue as an accent color, but loving this Monochromatic Kitchen fully saturated in Peacock Blue. This Benjamin Moore Varsity Blues paint hits it right on the money, and there is something so magnetic about this color. Despite it’s darker jewel tone, this color does not overwhelm, but soothes.
If you were to be so bold, you could incorporate a like color such as our Vihara Glass Mosaics to give your backsplash a little sparkle while keeping a Monochromatic Look. Or you could opt for an accent color like Canaray Yellow to break it up. A Neutral backsplash would be for those who change their minds often, this way you can change the paint of your walls and cabinets without a harsh breakup with your tile. Everyone wins. Open up your mind to the possibilities!
Summer Parties are in full swing, and before summer’s end you may be hosting a summer soiree. Take these summer tips to heart to host a memorable party without breaking the bank.
- Mix & Match. Instead of going out to purchase new dinnerware and cutlery, open up your cupboards! 9 times out of 10 you’ll have a set of 4-6 of each color or pattern. Mix and match your most colorful plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery for a fun and summery look.
- Forget the Tablecloth. Opt for colorful or patterned table runners to dress up the table without looking too stuffy. Pair the runners with fun beaded or round placemats to set your mix-matched dinnerware on. You will not have to worry about a tablecloth blowing around, and you can add a little weight ambiance through colorful vases full of garden floral arrangements from your own garden.
- Shake it Up. Break out your colorful tumblers, wine glasses, martini glasses and champagne flutes. Set up a small self-serve bar area and let your guests shake up their own cocktails or pour their vino of choice. You won’t need wine charms or markers, as one guest will have the green martini glass, while the other is sipping from a hot pink wine glass.
- Cozy On Up. If you do not have enough chairs for all your guests around the table, mix and match your chairs, and add colorful and patterned cushions to the back of the chairs. Or go super comfy and bring out the settee or love seat filled with plush cushions. If you have a super low table on your hands, set out your patio seat cushions on the ground and pile on the cushions. Your guests will not only be comfortable, they will remember all the effort you put in to ensuring they are happy!
