FASHION COLOR REPORT SPRING 2014
A beautiful bouquet of colorful finds for your home just in time for spring. Since my area of expertise is interiors I thought I'd post the 2014 Spring Color Report in home accessories. If you're looking to redesign a room from top to bottom or just spruce up a few areas why not consider incorporating some of these lovelies. Add a breath of fresh air with a new lamp in Placid Blue or maybe a soft comfy ottoman in Hemlock. Use one color or mix and match to create a new color combination, the possibilities are endless. Remember, if you add a new color repeat it several more times within the room to create balance throughout the space. Enjoy the colors of Spring and by all means bring on the warm weather!

This pillow is the inspiration behind this color scheme. A rich color palette of teal, rose, and gold. The Harlequin Pillow from Kings Lane is colorful, sophisticated, and fun. A playful fabric design makes this pillow a fabulous accent and inspiration for an entire room design.
I added a couple more throw pillow options to tie in with the shine, texture, and color of the entire theme.
The gold Plaited Metallics Pillow from Anthropologie is the perfect gold accent and has a beautiful woven texture that blends with the neutral part of the palette.
In contrast, The Aqua Decorative Pillow from The Home Centric Etsy Shop is a wonderful pop of solid teal color and shine.
The Tanner Rectangular Coffee Table another Pottery Barn find, is a great addition to this design because it looks sturdy with it's straight black lines yet the glass panels allow you to see all the color throughout the space. Like the sofa it is also available in a variety of sizes. Depending on how much space you have available, you could add a console behind the sofa or add some nesting tables on each side.
The Tortoise Table Lamp from Clayton Gray Home is a beautiful option as accent lighting. A solid base, large shade, and rich textures make this lamp bold and beautiful. It has a classic design that coordinates and blends perfectly with just about any color scheme. It is a wonderful contrast to the open wire frame of the glass coffee table and yet a nice solid balance to the sturdy design of the sofa.
Be creative, be colorful, and above all let your space be you!

Yes, it's true. I quite often think "I'll do" this and that when in fact I should actually "DO" this and that". Sounds easy yet so hard to execute, why is that? I feel great when I actually get something done so why is it so hard to get started? Perhaps, I'll start a new ritual and recite this quote after I wake up each morning. Will this be something "I do" or something "I say I'll do"? Only time will tell.
