Predictions are that today is going to be a major rain day here in Atlanta. While I’m off shopping Scott Antique Market I’ll be hoping that the sky will clear, the day will brighten and a rainbow will appear. Just in case that doesn’t happen, I’ve found my own rainbow of inspiration!
Have a great day!
Happy Monday! I hope you weekend was good. I stayed close to home and continued on Mission Organization getting things super organized around me. As I been working on adding a few color touches to my desk and work area, I’ve had color on my mind.
I wrote about selecting bold color combinations a couple of weeks ago and just can’t stop professing the fact that “Color Makes me Happy”. Hot pink as always been a favorite, so much so that I have adopted it as one of my signature colors along with red. Recently though, the combination of Hot Pink and Gold is making me swoon. There is just something so playful, sophisticated and cheerful when these two colors are used together.
So what do you think? Don’t these color just scream HAPPY ?!
Hello and Good Morning!
Have your heard the news….Black is making a comeback! After down trending for a few years and giving way to the color grey, predictions are that Black is Coming Back!
What does that mean for all of you fashion, entertaining, design and gift giving enthusiast? Lots of fabulous looks to inspire. Check it out!
While the trend has been to lighten up spaces with neutral or white walls, there are some good reasons to consider dark walls for your decor.
1. Dark walls provide a great contrast against lighter furniture and accessories, giving a space more depth!
2. Dark walls allow bright colors to pop. Brighter tones take on more energy and become more vibrant.

3. Dark walls can make a space feel cozier and more intimate. Darker shades are perfect for a dining rooms.
4. Dark walls in adjacent spaces actually make the room or space recede and appear larger!
5. Dark walls, especially with a high gloss finish are ideal for rooms where lots of metallic and shiny finishes are used. The entire space takes on a heightened sense of elegance!
I’m a fan of dark walls, how about you?
Sometimes a great room design is not about the color it has but instead about the color it lacks!
The use of vibrant, bold color has been such a trend statement in home decor for the past few years that sometimes when you see a room designed around a limited color palette you feel that it is missing something.
This gorgeous black and white room has everything it needs to be beautiful, stylish and chic. I love the dark pile rug and high glass black coffee table. There’s just enough contrast in the finishes to keep it from looking drab. The white walls allow all the textures to pop and the subtle shade of washed out black (grey) give the space lots of depth and interest.
What a great way to make a statement when bold color isn’t your thing!
Enjoy the weekend and thanks for stopping by!
