Interior Design Trends: Blue, White & Black


I think blue and white go together beautifully. Writing this, my mind conjures up images of classic blue and white china, gorgeous. And adding in a little black to the palette brings it all together. Not so bad, is it?

The Color Options I Wish I Had for My Home

The Color Options I Wish I Had for My Home


While it would be nice to be able to switch up the color of your home instantly and automatically, like in the 'Paint My House' project–that would give our pattern maker a whole new purpose, its not an easy or cheap setup. But just by looking at these, and all the other great light projects we've seen, it can inspire us to realize the power lamps and lighting can have on our interior color schemes, and how they can transform a space every evening as the natural light begins to fade.

Interior Design Trends: Red & Tan

Interior Design Trends: Red & Tan


Red and tan are actually quite pleasant together. Looking at the image it also reminds me of Christmas, a rustic country kind of feel. But, red and tan do not necessarily have to have a Holiday feel to them. As with any color, they can be what you want them
to be. Do you like these two colors together?
