Quick Decorating Touches

  • Add the latest color. The holy grail of color, Pantone has picked a rather bold option this year., titled “Greenery”.   Pantone describes it as an color that  “signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate”. To incorporate the trend, sprinkle in a few eye-catching accessories or splurge on a plush, room-filling rug
    .

    Greenery is the symbol of new beginnings, a refreshing and revitalizing shade of green with a really small dose of yellow. This fresh and zesty yellow-green shade evokes the first days of spring, talks about nature’s greens revive, and it’s a call for people to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

    Greenery is an omnipresent hue around the world, the natural hue of grass and foliage. It’s been also widely used in architecture, graphics and design and once you start looking for it, you will start seeing it everywhere.

  • Bring in bronze and brass. These of-the-moment metallics look luxurious, but they have economical price tags and complement a variety of colors and styles. Spruce up your kitchen cabinets with brass handles or use bronze light fixtures to warm up a room.
  • Toy with texture. Whether you’re drawn to fabric wallpaper, a decorative wall hanging or a collection of well-placed throw pillows, texture is an easy way to make a space more inviting. And don’t shy away from mixed materials like leather and wool. Moroccan hand-made mosaics are huge at the moment, I don’t see these ever going out of style.
  • Tile from Exquisite Surfaces

Trendy Upgrades

  • Enrich your entryway. You have only one chance to make a first impression. For a small investment, you can transform your home’s entrance with an artisan-crafted credenza or an oversized mirror that amplifies the natural light. Using handmade products and steering away from mass-produced items.
  • Update your countertops. Laminate options fashioned from recycled granite or glass are easy on the wallet and the environment. Want to go all out? Quartz is moving up the ranks in the world of solid surface countertops. Unlike granite, it does not need to be sealed, making it a lower maintenance alternative to granite. Materials like quartz are being designed to resemble slabs of natural stone, like granite & marble. This involves creating veins in interesting patterns swirled into the countertop slabs. This added boost to your creative personality in your kitchen will wow. Lighter shades in quartz, marble and wood are popular upgrades in today’s kitchens.
