Trending: Mustard Yellow Both In Fashion & Home Décor

March 7, 2020

Interesting color, isn’t it? Reminds me of a Fall color, but I have been seeing this color everywhere in clothing and home accessories!  A richer version of yellow, mustard adds warmth to a room without being too loud or bright. In many ways it can be treated the same as a neutral like beige or cream.

The colors are not as bright as normal yellow but nice if you want to add bright colors into your home that still feels warm. Read More

February 2, 2019

Everyone has their own opinion of what is hot and what is not in home decorating.  Some designers say one thing, (for example, accent walls are in) and another will say the trend is on it’s way out. So I have gathered together a list of popular trends for 2019 I have seen around the decorating world and are loving. You be the judge.

Floral patterns are taking root and showing up in stores on bedding, pillows, chairs, and wallpaper:

Pantone’s 2018 Purple

December 9, 2017

I am sure you have already heard this week on social media that Pantone has announced it’s color of the year for 2018:

2018-Ultra-Violet

Ultra Violet 18-3838. Pantone chose this complex color to reflect a “complex” time. According to Pantone, Ultra Violet is a “provocative yet thoughtful” color. Historically, it’s been associated with nonconformity and spirituality. Pantone also believes this color symbolizes new possibilities and a hopeful future.

I am sure you have also read mixed reviews. People either are liking this color or giving it a definite thumbs down.
