It’s so easy to look at a photo in a magazine, on Pinterest or Instagram and identify with the decor of a particular room. To see ourselves living in the very space, especially like the one above that are so lovely with layers of a creamy white and off white color palette. We like it, even love it, and want to recreate the look in our own homes. How do rooms like these evolve? How do we choose just the right paints to use the first time around? It can be so simple…
Just as we create our own fashion style over the years, we curate our homes. A vintage pair of jeans, a favorite chair we can’t part with. Both so common and yet unique because of their style. Our style. Our comfort zone. On Motivational Monday lets take a look at how fashion and decor often go hand in hand.
Regardless of a homes decor, traditional, transitional, or modern, the desire to simplify remains a top priority for so many. Yet, actually cleaning out, up or organizing an area can be a challenge. Closets, garages, basements are all on the wish list of areas to conquer. These larger areas can be daunting, but a bath…now that is a space where we can quickly make progress!
A NEW SEASON, A FRESH START, WHAT’S ON YOUR TO DO LIST?
Anyone who knows even the slightest thing about me, knows Fall is my season! In jeans and sweaters, taking salty walks on the beach and visiting cities where the smell of changing leaves is in the air. In our home, the nesting and prep for hibernation begins with a few things on our To Do List.
Color trends for home decor come and go. Trends seldom come back again because, well, they were trendy! Overdone and often a tad boring. Designers who have been in the industry as long as we have don’t like trends. We’d much rather see our clients create homes to reflect their personalities, are in sync with the architecture of their home and use classic colors that can be timeless.
As of July 2017, more than 175 million people use Pinterest every month. 75 billion Pins are currently found on the platform. These are some amazing numbers. What is even more amazing is, that less than a year ago, our design firm did not even have a Pinterest account. Gasp. Gag. Choke.
