Trending Now: Color of the Year

Emerald was named the official color of 2013!
I am green with envy!
(I thought this saying was rather fitting.)
(a little RHWOH action) 
I couldn’t be more thrilled that green is the color of choice- it is my absolute favorite. I can NOT wait to integrate this stunning color into some of my designs this year-- starting with my guest room.
Green is such a regal color to add to your spaces.
This combination of the green and white- really brightens up this whole entry.
You don't have to do the entire room in green--
But you could..
Or maybe just try simple touches around your space; like these below

Just by adding hints of this gorgeous color into your design really makes such a statment.

So don’t be afraid to experiment with a bold new color- it’s a new year, be daring!

Happy Decorating!

Before & After: Master Bathroom

I completed the year with another incredible room transformation.
This master bathroom already had tall ceilings and ample room. But what it lacked was color, a useable shower and closet space.

At first I put their space into the computer to help give them an idea of what their new space will look like.
We changed their tub into a walk in shower with a frameless glass enclosure. And what use to be their shower into a closet for him.

These clients decided that it would be best for them if I just picked everything out for them.
Which at first was a little nerve wrecking for me- but after a few things started to get installed they couldn’t have been more trilled. So of course that was a confident boost for me.
I am very pleased with how this project turned out- and couldn’t have been more blessed to have such wonderful clients.
I am really looking forward to the year ahead- can't wait to make more beautiful spaces for people.

Trending Now: Polka Dots

 Yes, you read correctly. Polka dots!
This fashion trend is making its way into our interiors-- as they always do.
Polka Dots create such a bold, graphic statement in your space. Whether it be on the walls, floors, pillows, or your furniture.

So chic

I love the metallic square dots used here.
Keep the rest of your color palette pretty simple- to let the dots be the star of the room.
Just hits of dots-

Polka dots- add a little something extra to your room. They also give a touch of fun and whimsy too.
DIY Tip:

Use your old laundry basket to paint your own dots. So clever!
