Feeling all kinds of Blush for this months’ Color Crush post. There is something so versatile about this shade of pink – it can freshen up a space for Spring or warm up a room in the wintertime. Pair it with creams and fair grays for a soft and feminine look, or let it be the shade to tone down bold reds and moody blues. And yes, blush can be sparingly paired with red! My color story is showing this pretty shade in all forms – from pretty pillows to durable fabrics (kid friendly-pet friendly always on my mind) and bold chairs to sweet votives. Get ready to blush!

I’m beginning the month with Benjamin Moore’s 2019 Color of the Year – Metropolitan AF-690.

Another change of season is here! I must say, with the unexpected storm last month, I am loving these sunny days and (record breaking) warm temps. I don’t know about you, but a new season always brings inspiration to give my home a little bit of TLC. Whether it be freshening up, organizing or updating. We talk all about that in our post Refresh and Organize Equals Energized. But as well all know, this season is known for Spring Cleaning.
Interior designers are constantly drawing inspiration from all aspects of life and our surroundings – from architecture, global trends or even by a walk through our own city streets. Design inspiration is all around us and the sources are endless. One of the biggest sources being the fashion design world. Both interior design and fashion design tend to follow the same trends, prints, colors and texture from season to season. I thought it would be fun to share with you just how those worlds merge by drawing a little bit of inspiration from my very own portfolio.
Last week I introduced a new blog series focusing on self care. If you didn’t have the chance to read the first entry, catch up with tips on how to create your very own spa bathroom.

We have to check our work calendar, check our personal calendars and not to mention checking the kid’s calendars!

The word SELF can easily be seen as selfish or self indulgent but caring for your “self” is one of the healthiest things you can do!

I speak from experience and learned the hard lessons of not caring for myself and making that a priority.
