We are really excited to bring Pantone's Fall color trends into our home décor, how about you? The shades for Autumn and Winter are anything but dull, and offer a lot of room to set the mood for the season without losing bold colors. Radiant Orchid and Mauve Mist bring different points on the purple spectrum into play, alongside rich Sangria. Royal Blue and Bright Cobalt bring elegance and zing to the blue end of things, while Aurora Red, Misted Yellow and Cypress are muted warm tones.
I find that clients who are looking to redecorate are often nervous to use color pairings that are outside of the norm because they see it as an all-or-nothing commitment. It’s not! Like with any color palette, your design should balance bases and accents; a harmony of neutrals and pops of color. The key is to use these bolder hues in tasteful moderation. If you’re ready to step out of the box of pre-determined color schemes and into the world of unexpected color pairings, these ideas should help get you started.

When dressing the windows in a master bedroom, it’s important to remember the functionality of the pieces in addition to their beauty. A bedroom is to remain serene, quiet, and dark in the evenings and early mornings to give you the most restful sleep you can get! If you have undressed windows, or under dressed windows with blinds or shades that are letting in too much light at night, your sleep can be negatively affected. That was just that case for this client’s bedroom, and just the reason!
More often than not, my clients are seeking a balance of beauty and privacy; however, that was not the case with this pair! This quiet, private living room already brushed elbows with their wooded yard, so seclusion was not a top priority. The issue in this case was the strong sunlight that shone through the trees, turning the space into a bright sauna of a room.
