Color and shape often impact how we feel about a space. As we are spending more and more time at home, the feel that home gives to us does matter. Today we are going to tour a gorgeous Victorian home with a cool vibe thanks to its color palette and playful geometric shapes. Here are our favorites.
Minimalism doesn’t need to be stark and cold. By adding textures, vintage pieces and a little subtle warm color tones, a minimalism home can be elegant, inviting and warm. This is why we fall in love with a chic Chicago apartment designed by Kara Mann. Here are some of our favorite highlights.
There is a reason we love September. Every September after Paris Fashion Week, we are expecting the major paint brands roll out their color trends and their color of the year for the next year. Just couple of days ago, we posted a blog about Sherwin-Williams color trends in 2021. Today, Sherwin-Williams announced its color of the year 2021–Urban Bronze.
Each year from September, it is often the season for the major paint companies to introduce their color trends of the next year. With Covid-19 pandemic this year, we are truly looking for something fresh to get inspired.
Sherwin-Williams just launched their theme of color trends in 2021— Rhythm . Rhythm is the secret to how the natural world stays in step. The same sense of balance applies to our personal sense of nature through how we live — and how we design. Fast and slow. Quiet and expressive. Virtual and physical. See it take shape in 40 trend colors, presented in four palettes designed to bring your own rendition of rhythm to beautiful life.
When we are still embracing all of the shades of Pantone color of the year 2019 –Live Coral, PPG, the paint company with 135 years history just recently introduced its Color of the Year 2020—Chinese Porcelain. Just by the name, your mind starts to imagine those crisp Chinoiserie blue-and-white. Yes, it is kind of blueish color, combining rich cobal blue and moody ink blue. It’s calm, elegant, modern, chic.
Maybe because summer is here and I immediately fell in love with this color. I feel it is so ease on eyes and have a depth.
In my last post, I shared 5 quick ways to decorate your houses for Christmas. One of the quick ways is to repaint your wall colors. I will focus on color of Pink in today’s blog.
50 Shades of Pink?
Pink is romantic and intimate, feminine, loving, caring and extremely considerate. It tones down the physical passion from the red color and replaces it with a gentle and loving energy. In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive color that inspires warm and comforting feelings. The color pink gives the feeling that everything will go well or be okay. Most people have heard of the saying “everything is rosy”. It may also indicate good health and success.
Pink in Interiors
Applying Pink in interiors can create chic, fashionable, cheerful, feminine feeling. Combining it with darker colors like dark blue, dark green, black or gray, you can make the color pink stronger and more sophisticated. Here are some room exmples:
Another project we did this year. Pink wall provides such an elegant backdrop for the artwork –The Lady in Red. This salmon pink is rich, passionate and classy. I really like the way how it pairs with cream panellings.
Here are some beautiful pink rooms by other designers:
I hope these give you some ideas on your holiday decorations.
