Something Blue: Every Shade of Blue is Hot for 2015

The sky is blue, and so is the sea, but they are never just one shade of blue. The versatility and expansiveness of the blue color spectrum makes it a reliable trend that can be edited and tweaked to suit any room and any season. In fact, we have to say: Is blue ever really out of style?

Conquer a Closet Revamp

Closets come in all shapes and sizes – reach-in, walk-in, and walk-ins with serious square footage and maybe even an island – which means there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to reorganization. But if you’re as organized as you’re going to get and it’s simply a lackluster area that’s your problem, there are plenty of solutions for spicing up this intensely personal space so that you love where your wardrobe and accessories are housed, and adore spending time there making yourself look good.

How to Update Your Look with Mid-century Modern Pieces

Mid-century refers to the late 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s, a time represented so accurately and endearingly in modern films and TV shows like Pleasantville, Mad Men, and That Thing You Do. It’s fun to see this vintage era come to life on screen, but most people don’t really want to feel like they’re completely living in another time. So how do you borrow from a decade long gone? How do you capture the growing design trend of “mid-century modern” in your home without making it feel like you’ve stepped back in time? You want to be retro-inspired, but not go so retro that it looks like you haven’t updated your space for decades.

You can still bring the plant life you want into your space, even if you’re cheating by using fake greenery.

Applying the “Rule of Three” to Interior Design

rule of three

The Rule of Thirds is typically a term used in photography. It refers to the process of identifying and taking well-balanced and interesting shots by splitting a photo into thirds horizontally and vertically. Whereas your photo will be more appealing when the main subject is off-center, the Rule of Three as it applies to interior design is slightly different. The Rule of Three means that odd-numbered groupings look better and more natural than even-numbered groupings.

You have finally struck out on your own. You have your own place, whether it’s a dorm room or apartment. Except for your roommate(s) that is. How do you enjoy the pleasure of finally getting to do everything as you please if there’s still one or more people potentially vetoing your decisions? When it comes to interior design, there are ways to get your way, create a complementary interior design, and express your decorating wishes freely (at least, as freely as you can until you live alone). 

His-and-Hers Design Themes

In many households, one half of a couple often takes the lead with decorating decisions. But if a woman is the #1 decorator, that doesn’t mean lace and frills are on the horizon. If a man is making design choices, that doesn’t mean leather and animal heads will take center stage.

Take Your Bathroom from Simply Functional to Modern Luxury

Your bathroom serves many functions. Many important functions. But modern bathroom trends are upping the ante for a combination of purpose and beauty that is beyond simple utility. Your days of bathing, relaxation and pampering will be full of elegance and style that reflect a comfortable boudoir or inviting living room over a stark bathroom.
