Adding a Splash of Color to Your Walls

With the birds chirping, the sun shining, and winter behind us, we all have a little pep in our step and are in higher spirits. Gone is the dreary clothing in our wardrobe, and our bright, fun spring clothes are back in rotation. Just as our wardrobe goes through an overhaul, it is also a great time to give your home a new look.

If you’re looking to give your walls a fresh new look with color, look no further, as we’ll share with you several of our favorite colors. To add depth and texture to your room, choose a color that’s bold, such as kettle black, which will make a sultry statement in your space and allow your accents to pop.

To create feelings of warmth and tranquility in your room, along with giving it a touch of the outdoors, consider selecting an emerald green paint. It’s colorful yet sophisticated, and simple yet dazzling, which makes this pop of color one that we are lusting over!

We cannot get enough of golden yellow, and while it can be unappealing to some, if correctly used, it will add beauty and interest to the space. When paired with white, both colors work together to pop and creates a sense of elegance. You want your room to make you happy, and this color will certainly bring a smile to your face.

While the above colors are only 3 of more than 500 colors offered by Tribute Paint, we know that there will be a color that fits your family’s personality and home. Tribute, which is an exclusive line of KILZ Paint, is the most technologically advanced acrylic product to date. It offers the best coverage, and with its exceptional stain resistant properties that resist future smears and spills, it is the perfect paint for a busy home.

Jen Bertrand’s Top 4 Trends for Spring

Spring will be here before we know it, and to stay ahead of the design game, we’ve spent the last several weeks pouring over all of the upcoming design trends that will be warming up. We asked HGTV personality and our very own Spokesperson Jen Bertrand, what her favorite 4 design trends will be for this spring. Jen, take it away!

Outdoor Living

Outdoor living is making a huge break into trends. Whether it’s a fire pit, a kitchen, or hammock, families will focus on their love of being outside together.

Greenery

You are also seeing the color green being very much on trend this year. However, if you don’t like the color green, remember, it is like having a plant in your room, so do just that. Add plants that you can keep alive in your home, real or fake, and you’ll be amazed at what a difference plants make!

Patterned Tiles

We are seeing more and more patterned tiles making their way into our homes, both on the floors and on the walls. In regards to the types of patterns being used in tiles, classic patterns that are inspired by Italian, tribal, and southwestern designs are predominantly being used.

Wood & Laminate

Wood, wood, and more wood is still hot in home décor due to the texture and character that it adds to a space. Don’t just look at your floors when it comes to adding wood. You have empty ceilings that could use some wood flooring on them, or clad a wall in distressed wood to create a truly amazing ambiance in your home. And better yet, since laminate is an increasingly popular alternative to wood, you can even bring laminate to your floors and walls. Nothing beats having options!

How To Add Elements Of Nature Into Your Decor

Winter can be dull, cold, and lacking color, but bringing touches of nature into our homes that are upbeat and bright, can be one way to beat the winter blues. We love to feel welcome, peaceful, and cozy in our home, and bringing in elements of nature can do just that!

Try starting with color. Pantone’s Color of the Year “Greenery,” is one color that can brighten any dreary winter mood. Shades of green in your home can range from olive to emerald to bright green, so your options are limitless and sure to fit your taste. Adding green to your room is a simple and easy way to bring nature into your space; all while creating a space that is buzzing with energy.

We love updating accent pieces in the home when seasons change, as it allows your space to change with the seasons and trends. Replace those orange and purple couch pillows of fall with pillows that have a touch of green in them. Small accent pieces are a safe way to add a color to your room without overwhelming your space.

Did you know that white walls can make your home feel more in-tuned with nature? You are giving your room a blank canvas for design, and not only that, white is bright, energetic, and fresh, which is how we personally want to feel during the winter! For a splash of color, include a potted plant on your dining room table or side tables for actual greenery.

And lastly, one of our favorite, but most extensive ways to bring nature into your home, is with the design elements of brick, stone, and/or wood. Brick and wood panel walls add a raw, rustic feel to your space, while wooden beams truly make you feel as if the outdoors is inside your home.

How To Decorate Your Home With Red & Pink

Red and pink are the colors of Valentine’s Day, and while we incorporate these colors into themed home parties, these colors are actually great to use year-round in your décor! We believe that no color should be limited to a holiday, so with that, we share with you our favorite ways to add red and pink in your home.

Red is a color that is often found in interior design, however, you must be mindful of how much or how little you use, as too much red could be overwhelming, or too little of it could simply not be enough for a proper impact.

If you use red as an accent color, it will draw your attention to other furnishings in your home. In this instance, and in the room below, red has the power to enable you to see design and detail outside of the color, such as the details of the below fireplace.

With pink, this color can look awesome and grown-up if and only if the correct shade is used. For a fresh and bright feel to your furniture, use pink accent pillows; this will go a long way in your living room. Pink flowers are simple, low-key, and ideal for giving a neutral room a jolt of energy, while pink artwork can do wonders for a room as the focal point.

When it comes to the shade of pink, a soft, light shade is best to create a calming environment, while a darker pink on your walls or flooring will surely make a statement in a big room, such as your living room or bedroom.

Less Tech, More Living

As more and more of our attention and interest is spent on social media and with using smart devices, there is alternatively a shift in techless living rooms. A stronger focus on quality time with friends and family is taking precedence over tech gadgets, and all this trend requires from you is to create a living space without a TV.

Hearth and Home

Mismatched Cabinets

Okay, this one might not be found in a lot of homes, but we think it should, because it’s a result of “out of the box thinking.” Mismatched cabinets will mostly be found in the homes of the bold and brave, and whether you incorporate two different designs, or just two different colors for your cabinets, we can guarantee that it’ll add an entirely new look and feel to your kitchen.
