Mustard's, white, black and brown, what do you think? I just cannot seem to get enough of anything with touches of yellow, i love it!
I love black and white, oh and with a touch of beige as well.....don't you? It's so elegant, clean and just perfect. If you are feeling like a certain type of color on a certain day, then it can be added and it is still amazingly chic! So, this is one of the many reasons why I love this trio of colors and today is a black, beige and white kind of day for me :) Enjoy!
At the moment I am truly loving beige and mauve. The two hues are not harsh, but rather very soothing, natural and organic. These two hues, interestingly enough do not look quiet bad paired up against one another (at least the from what I have seen recently). The two colors can also help tone things down a bit in a room that is overloaded with a massive amount of bright colors. So, what are your feelings on beige and mauve?
You can never go wrong with this color combo. Black and white always work rather well together and are quite elegant. Formal attire, place settings and decor are usually always black and white, and are the safe route to go when in doubt.
Today's mood is a good one, one filled with hues of orange, beige and browns. This is an interesting palette, wouldn't you agree? You have the bright-orange, dark-brown and the light-beige. I feel that it is a bit interesting because this trio of hues can be associated with fall, and at the moment we are transitioning out of Spring, but wait a minute, Spring and Fall do mimic one another in a sense, in that they are transitioning seasons.
Verner Panton is considered one of Denmark's most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers. During his career, he created innovative and futuristic designs in a variety of materials, especially plastics, and in vibrant colors. His style was very "1960s" but regained popularity at the end of the 20th century; as of 2004, Panton's most well-known furniture models are still in production (at Vitra, among others).
Panton was trained as an architectural engineer in Odense; next, he studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art (Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi) in Copenhagen, graduating in 1951. During the first two years of his career, 1950-1952, he worked at the architectural practice of Arne Jacobsen, another Danish architect and furniture designer. Panton turned out to be an "enfant terrible" and he started his own design and architectural office. He became well known for his innovative architectural proposals, including a collapsible house (1955), the Cardboard House and the Plastic House (1960). Near the end of the 1950s, his chair designs became more and more unconventional, with no legs or discernible back. In 1960 Panton was the designer of the very first single-form injection-moulded plastic chair. The Stacking chair or S chair, which would become his most famous and mass-produced design.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Verner Panton experimented with designing entire environments: radical and psychedelic interiors that were an ensemble of his curved furniture, wall upholstering, textiles and lighting. He is best known for the design of a German boats interior, now a famous museum. He is also known for a hotel in Europe that utilized circular patterns and cylindrical furniture.
Additionally, Panton is well-known for his innovative design work for "Der Spiegel," a well-known German publication in Hamburg.

Green and brown is a wonderful combination of natural colors. Trees, branches, grass, it all can be found and seen everyday. This combination relaxes us and exudes coziness, a sense of relaxation and peace. Do you like the color brown combined with green? Are there touches of this color combination in your home? If so, I would love to hear about it.
Fuchsia (...is surprisingly difficult to spell - the editor) seems to be pretty huge at the moment. It's bold, bright and tropical, and can add a dramatic touch to any home when used accordingly. It's a very playful and charming color, so why not use it (if you are fond of it) in your home or anywhere else for that matter. As for me, I can deal with this hue but in small doses. How about you? I would love to hear your thoughts.
Straight out of the 70's, the aptly named German based company, Wallpaper from the 70's, is the source of today's color inspiration.
The good old wallpaper is back and she dressed to impress. She put on her patterned clothes and brightest colours. This way she first became the star in bars and clubs and it didn't take long until more and more new friends invited her home. And those who have ever shared the privacy of their home with her don't want to let her go.
Surely, we are all wallpaper enthusiasts, actually even old pals who have known her since our childhood days. That's why also her other mates visit our shop. And they all have one thing in common: They enjoy the style of the 70s and chuck out their white walls to get a thrill from the wallpaper.
The fresh and exhilarating mood today is green and white. This palette is one that I will be incorporating into my home, and it will pretty much stay that way due to the fact that my favorite color has been green ever since I could remember (could be because I am a spring baby and emerald is my birthstone, who knows?).
Again, we have a pattern here, yet another selection of hues that evoke thoughts of Spring.
At the moment I am now loving the combination of blue and brown. Pale blue, turquoise, chocolate and light brown are the perfect pairings just in time for spring, as we do now know turquoise is the color of the moment. Hey, how can you not enjoy these two, we pretty much view them everyday in nature if you seriously think about it. What do you think about utilizing blues and browns in your bedroom or perhaps the office or the rest of your home for that matter? It is fresh, inviting and strong when paired together, again just what we need for spring. Where would you use this color palette in your space? Do you love it or hate? Why?
