New Year, New Trends for 2016!

Neutral colors will be everywhere you look, and according to Pantone the color trend for 2016 is rose quartz and serenity (soft pinks and blues) which will radiate a sense of order and peace. Simply White, Benjamin Moore’s color of the year, is very elegant and defined. Layered whites mixed with natural light add nuance and subtle beauty to a room. To add a bit more character, use different textures, geometric patterns and mixed metals that will all be trending in the upcoming months.

Bringing the outdoors in will continue to play a big role in homes. The Thornhill chandelier brings the form of nature to lighting with forest-like branches finished in a stark Marcado Black. In addition to having natural looking decor and greenery, welcome natural sunlight in with windows and sliding glass door systems that will allow easy access to the outdoors while adding beauty and style to any space. Outdoor living spaces and kitchens are the perfect place to relax alongside nature. They are a great addition to make your own backyard feel like a vacation spot all year long.


Want to Chase those Winter Blues Away?

Feeling a little melancholy because the holidays are over?  Well you are not alone!

Getting organized, purging those drawers and closets and starting a small project always melt those winter blues away!!

Going digital (paperless) is a great way to start the year.  Maybe you will be able to replace that large filing cabinet with a smaller more stylish cabinet if you don’t have to file so many bills and receipts.  You’ll also save some trees in the process!  Heather Levin a writer for Money Crashers gives some excellent tips on How to go Paperless at Home.


Need Some Stress Relief?

Drained after a day of holiday shopping?  There’s a few things you can do to make your house a home….a place you look forward to coming to at the end of the day.

Decorative pillows, throw blankets, a comfy chair, music and intimate lighting will set the mood for you to enjoy the few hours you have at home.

After looking at that computer screen all day, try looking at this contemporary diverse and sharp Abode pendant from Quoizel’s Platinum Collection!  The dual shades are combined to create a cohesive look with clear organza trimmed in grey under a laser cut metal shade with an intriguing unique design. The sleek polished chrome finish completes the look.


Create a Kaleidoscope of Stained Glass

Nothing gets you more into the holiday mood  than the glowing colors of the season!

Whether it’s the outside holiday lights, the lights on the tree or the festive lights in your home, the warm ambience that you can create with lighting, will make your home cozy and inviting.

Tiffany, a kaleidoscope of stained glass, can instantly transform the decor of any room. Since the light that shines through the many different colors of the stained glass is diffused in all directions, it makes Tiffany lighting so timeless and versatile.
