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 on the walls?!?!  Absolutely!!

So many rooms last year went white.  Take this year and make just one wall bold!

Back In The Groove – Record Storage

Vinyl record sales are the highest they have been in the last 15 years.  Today we are exploring new ways to store these nostalgic music makers.  Join us as we get ourselves “back in the groove” with record storage!

Atocha is a New York based company and we are in love with their American made, sustainable wood storage! This cabinet features six drawers for LPs and four drawers for CDs.

We love the angled lines of Etic Design’s media cabinet.  Takes the typical wooden box and gives it a new sculptural aesthetic.

This sculptured media cabinet would look perfect with a collection of LPs stacked in it!

Mixing of materials is always  a good idea when it comes to media storage.  The metal legs makes it durable while giving the piece light weight feel and a rock star appearance!  Brass is back baby….antique brass, that is!

And for those who love whimsy with their storage.  This ikat painted console would be perfect for storing music and media!

Modular storage is becoming more and more popular.  This stackable storage would be perfect for a small space!

This modular storage makes configurations endless!  I love how the horizontal lines are always at the same level!  Would look sharp full of vintage and new LPs!

What kind of storage will you use for your new found collections?
