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!



Take an existing color and paint a pretty pattern in metallic on top!



Use your ceilings as an unexpected place to use a new paint color!



Contrast colors with an unexpected trim color!



Or take your new bold color and do it all!  Walls, ceiling, and trim!!



How can you incorporate a new paint color in your home this year?

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



Maybe you’ve been looking for that perfect accent color for your room to add a splash of color…

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!
