Bring in the retro vibe with this years Fall Pantone color, Spicy Mustard. These are some of my favorite picks to help you transition into fall with style.
Spicy Mustard is a fun way to bring accent color to your space. It’s perfect because it’s just enough pop to make a statement but not annoyingly sunshine bright. Try it like this on a kids Playroom door or Master Bedroom.

I love a good Canadian tuxedo like nobody’s business. And the fashion and interior design business has been off the charts with its use of denim this year. It gives a laid back, like “I’m not even trying to be cool” vibe. Faded Denim the epitome of California Cool and looking forward to sporting it through the seasons. Check out my favorite uses.
“Faded denim” by Benjamin Moore (795) is quite a bright and vibrant blue. I like to use it as a pop of color on a front door to really introduce brightness to a space. See here by InSite Designs out of South Carolina.

All of us are ready for summer to hit and what’s a better way to prep for summer than planning a getaway! With so many scenic spots in the area just a short drive away, I plan on taking advantage of the days getting warmer and staying light out longer. Pack your bags with some travel items that will help you enjoy the getaway without any worries.
Benjamin Moore’s Scenic Drive is a relaxing shade of green that reminds me of lush landscape seen on road trips through the woods. Cocolapine finds a way to capture the color into a tranquil bedroom.

I’ve never been much of a pink loving girl – I’ve always tended to lean towards cooler tone colors – but there is just something about mauve that I absolutely can’t get enough of. To me, its the right blend of smoky pinks, purples, and greys that make it a great color to pair with. When paired with lighter colors, it becomes airy and soft. Throw in some orange into the mix and it becomes warm and bright like a desert sunset. It works well as a neutral and as an accent. Take a look at some of my findings to see what I mean!
Benjamin Moore’s Mauve Desert nails the perfect shade of desert hues that are so unique and found in the landscape of specific regions of the world. Coco Lapine Design shows how a mauve linen tablecloth plays as a neutral background on a table set with great accessories. The white tableware, brass utensils, dark candles, and matte black vase contrast against the light tablecloth. Romantic and moody? Yes!

If you are going to go bold, go for it like Brittany Ambridge did and paint this jaw dropping hue on your Entry walls with black gloss trim. It is a sure way to bring glam, fun, and richness to a space. Or if you’re feeling less daring, use it as an accent color with a complimentary color like navy. Either way, it’s a fab color that will keep heads turning.

Indigo is a deeply saturated cool tone that I love seeing in interior design and fashion. I think that it is a great summer color when paired with a light material such as cotton.
The rich indigo color has been used as a dye for many traditional fabric techniques. Before modern day screen printing, many patterns were created by hand by using dyes and stamps in various techniques. A few of my favorite processes are shibori and batik, which have been found in many contemporary designs lately. Reminiscent to the depths of water, indigo brings out a calmness wherever I see it.
If you are interested in creating your own pattern with dye, check out a few of these how to’s and kits: Batik, Shibori, and Sun Printing.
Behr’s Indigo Batik is seen in the accessories that stand out against the neutrals. The balance of fun patterns and textures with bright colors of this living room designed by Collected Interiors keep everything lively while still balanced.

Because I was not blessed with the green thumb that most of my family members possess, my horticultural endeavors usually end in disaster. The plants in my apartment that have survived 3 moves through 2 cities over the last 7 years, however, are my cacti. No home is complete without a green element, but with the recent water shortage in mind, resilient cacti and succulent plants are the perfect plant to liven up your space. Even better than living cacti are the great cacti-themed clothing and accessories in stores right now – no water needed! These playful items are a great way to add a little bit of Southwestern flair to your summer.
Cactus Flower is a wonderfully saturated pink that is sure to energize any space. This room spotted on Dicorcia Design uses a similar shade to create a modern backdrop for traditional furnishings.
