Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue are Pantone 2016 color of the year! Pantone, the leading authority on color, made the announcement early this morning.
It’s twins! This is the first time Pantone has chosen two colors to share the spotlight.
This is a softer take on color for 2016 and I LOVE it!

Red, White and Blue Pillows Add a Pop
A family lake house out in Otis, MA was in desperate need of a furniture update. The two This End Up (can you say indestructible?) sofas were sporting plaid cushions from the 80’s.
We selected this super-durable woven in shades of blues with a touch of red to recover the cushions.
Last week I traveled to Atlanta, GA to attend Design Bloggers Conference 2015. I attended last year for the first time and loved it, I couldn’t wait to return.
I was inspired and energized being with my design and blogging friends. Little did I know how much more fun and excitement was in store for my second conference.

It’s been a real circus around here lately.
Catching up and keeping up with clients after I’ve been away is my priority.

Red – The color of love
Red is the color we pay the most attention to. It’s the most energetic color, it’s hot and dramatic.
Red is the color of love, passion, and desire; red hearts, red roses.
A “red-letter day” is terrific; wearing a “scarlet letter” marks you as untouchable.
On the flip side, red is for danger, speed, and anger.
