TREND ALERT: NEON!

Home trends typically closely follow fashion trends. One of the biggest trends this season is neon. I am a child of the 80's and have always had a love affair with neon. That being said, I can understand how this particular trend could scare a lot of people, but neon can be introduced in small doses, or a whole room. Below are some neon inspirations.


Use Neon to make your front door "POP"






Add just one bold accessory or piece of furniture.

  








Or, go crazy with a whole room!

Crisp Clean White

I know a lot of people out there are afraid of color, they just do not know where to begin; or they simply do not like a lot of color.  If this is the case, there is a simple, elegant solution. Go all white. I mean commit to it. White can have such an impact in a room. An all white room looks crisp, clean and refreshing. Plus, if you do decide to add color later, it's easy! Everything goes with white.

Below are some examples of beautiful all white rooms.
