Blue is the new black. Color inspired by traditional indigo textiles make a comeback for 2013 and beyond. Accessories in this versatile shade can anchor any space in any style from a classic nautical-inspired look or the perfect " preppy chic" aesthetic, when paired with a palette of bright white and pink, tangerine or lime in bold, graphic patterned accessories.

Wallpaper Wednesday

We are just WILD about wallpaper!!

Do you have a wild side? A weakness of animal print? Well, why not put it all over your walls??

How about some tiger stripes like this one from Seabrook's Carl Robinson collection (Pattern SKB18885)

Wallpaper Wednesday

There is a wall covering for all styles, even for men! Do you have a den or game room where the boys all hang out? Or a son who wants a "grown-up" room? There are so many sophisticated choices, especially from the Ralph Lauren wall covering collections.

Stripes are great for everything, and can defintely look masculine for a gentleman's room. This one from Ralph Lauren is called Palantine Stripe in Midnight.

Wallpaper Wednesday!

Wallpaper has gotten a bad rap, and it's time to change that. Wallpaper doesn't have to be what was in your great-grandma's powder room. There are so many more varieties today to make your home beautiful, and today I want to talk about texture.

There are so many different lines of wallpaper that carry textures.

You can do a natural woven texture like this one called Tortoise Shell in Sunbleached by Ralph Lauren. It's not just a picture, it's actually woven wood! How cool is that for a sun room or bathroom?

Design Trends

Patterns are hot hot hot right now in the world of design! They had interest and energy into a room and look great as accents. From wallpaper to drapery these patterns are everywhere.

Below are some of the hottest patterns right now according to HGTV's Liz Gray. You can check out her article here which has great information on each pattern
