New Year, New Paint!

Painting a room is one simple step towards making a transformation in your home.  This New Year has us thinking about new ways we can freshen our spaces by only using paint!

Every year paint manufacturers release color trends.  This year, Dulux’s trends were by far my favorite:  dark, moody and saturated!

Color of the Year!

Every year Pantone releases a “color of the year”. Whether you realize it or not for the rest of the year you see that color appear over and over from the fashion industry to furniture design, art, and accessories.

How much green did you see in 2013?

As much as we enjoyed last year’s color  it is time to say goodbye to Emerald and hello to…..

Radiant Orchid!

“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”-Pantone press release

I happen to love the color of the year. Some shade of purple has been my favorite color for as long as I can remember. I am excited to see all of the new “Orchid releases” this year!

One thing is for sure…you will see this color in almost every magazine you pick up for the next 11 months!
