BURST OF COLORS

Happy first day of 2014!!!

One of my readers noticed that I don’t feature enough bedroom designs on the blog which, in fact, is true. For some reason, I am always drawn to living rooms and especially dining rooms perhaps because these are the most used areas in my apartment. But that’s kind of selfish of me, right? And so for this year, I promise to post more inspiration photos not just for the bedroom but also for the other spaces at home.

I’m going to start with these colorful bedrooms for older kids and teenagers. They’re vibrant, fun and exciting – exactly how we want this year to be :)

SMALL APARTMENTS: CHEERY IN LIGHT GRAY AND CITRUS COLORS

Nowadays, more and more people find it more practical to live in small apartments and condominiums. While white throughout the home provides the illusion of space, sometimes you find your dwelling place just crying for color. What to do? Mix bold colors with neutral shades.

The light gray walls tamed the bold hues, creating a fresh and soothing palette.

HOLIDAYS IN MONOCHROME

It’s only a month away before summer officially starts. I bet that at this point, many of you are already making vacation plans. I bet, too, that 50 percent of those plans comprises holiday outfits. Summer is obviously the time to wear colors, whether in soft neutral palettes or in crazy, unexpected combinations. Now here’s something fun. How about ditching that color wheel on your desk and going monochromatic? Not in black, white or nude. But in green, purple or yellow. Game?

THE LIGHTKEEPER AND SEAFOAM GREEN

I read Susan Wiggs’ The Lightkeeper over ten years ago. (Great book!) Every time I remember it, I always think of seafoam green because of a scene in the novel involving sea glass. Seafoam green is a refreshing color that makes you want to jump on a boat and go fishing. I can almost smell the sea!
