I am a huge fan of black and white interiors ,while my husband on the other hand, is a traditionalist when it comes to interiors…so this could never be done in my home. I have pulled together a collection of interiors all dressed in black & white that will entice and inspire you. These spaces evoke a sense of sophistication, edge, elegance and glamour.
To successfully tie the space together, I suggest using a monochromatic color palette with a pop of color or by allowing the light to bounce around the walls by choosing a ultra-white wall paint to help the room feel more spacious and bright. Then you can introduce black in furniture, art and accessories. Another technique is choosing black as your trim and floor color with white and gray accents in furniture and accessories. Painting the walls black may feel daring but this can be achieved with white furniture and lots of bling! Let’s not forget pattern, this can be done with wallpaper, fabric, tile, or paint. Enjoy!
Cool breezes, snuggly sweaters, apple cider, pumpkins and fall leaves. Who doesn’t love Fall? To me however, fall means the Pantone Fashion color Fall Report, Fall Fashion Week 2013 and the new ways that these styles, patterns and colors can be incorporated into a space. Making your home cozy doesn’t just mean orange and pumpkin spice (although who wouldn’t agree that both of those items are yummy!). Fall brings bold, beautiful jewel tones with deep rich colors and textures. It might seem challenging to incorporate these items into your home or space. I’ve taken some great pieces from Fall Fashion week, and have paired them with a few great additions to any home:
By using accessory pieces, accent furniture, paint, and accent rug or even wall coverings, Fall is a great time to mix it up and take those fall fashions straight from the Runway to your home.

A nice pop. No, not soda pop (although who doesn’t love a nice ice-cold soda pop every now and then!) but a pop of color. This bright and fun idea is a great way to liven up any space in your home as well as allow you to switch out and update your space as much or as little as you want. There are MANY ways that you can add an accent to your room, and if you are following us on Pinterest (insert shameless plug), you already have some great ways of adding that nice pop. For those of you who aren’t (yet) following our page, I thought we could have a little fun and look at some ways of adding color to your room.
Our first option is a great accent wall using paint, fabric or a great graphic wall covering:
Another great way to pop some color into your space is using fabric:
One of the simplest ways of adding a little brightness into your room is with accessories. These can easily be changed out as colors phase out of season, or if you just need a change of color. You can always also keep the same great pieces and have your local refurbish company to finish your furniture pieces or accessories in a new color.
So whether you are using fabric, paint, wall coverings or beautiful flowers or other accessories, color is an inexpensive and easy way to add character and a bold accent in any space. So pick your favorite color, and find a space that needs a little POP!
