Pink Romance

Take Back Your Favorite Shade

Pink is making a comeback in 2016. The shade previously reserved for little girl’s rooms and outdated bathrooms has taken on a new life. Pink has become a new neutral, perfect for adding a hint of color to the white rooms we’ve been seeing the past few years.
With rose quartz named one of the colors of the year, we are more ready than ever to embrace this chic shade.

Check out our Pinterest board to view even more images!

 Rose gold is one of the hottest trends of the moment. It’s a fresh take on the metallic gold designs of the past few years. The versatile finish can be paired with vintage or modern decor to match  your personal style.

Floral

Florals are always in style, but this year we’re seeing more subdued shades that go well with simple pieces and understated decor. Instead of the hot pink and black combo, blush and sage green are the key colors.

Lace

Pink and lace are both things that have been labeled the dreaded “frilly” in the past. Now these two classics have combined to form something that is far from that. Heritage lace patterns are done in cool shades of dove grey and antique blush, bringing back the classic elegance of the designs.

Watercolor

Watercolors are another one of the hottest trends of the season. This soft design ties in with the comeback of handmade products. When done in chic pink shades, watercolors take on a romantic feel, with the hazy shades gracefully flowing from one to the next.

Vintage

As vintage pieces have come back into style in fashion, they’ve also been appearing in  home decor. The nod to the past allows for a greater range of decor pieces. This vintage pink floral wallpaper has a chic watercolor finish, tying in the last trend, with a contemporary stripe pattern. The mixture of styles creates an eclectic style you can make all your own.

Top 9 Decor Trends We Are Loving for 2016

Keep Your Home Fresh & Fabulous This Year!

2016 Decor Trends

Image via Pinterest

New year, new set of trends! Every year we get extremely excited to see what decor trends may have stuck around and which ones are completely fresh and new. In 2015 we saw a ton of blue, bold and modern geometrics, decor with an industrial chic edge and of course glistening metallics. So what’s in store for the coming year? We thought you would never ask! Come and explore with us the top trends we are just head over heels for in 2016. From blush pinks to beautiful embellishments, we’re pretty sure we won’t want 2016 to ever end.

1. Think PINK!

Who doesn’t love pink? Ok so maybe not everyone, but the pink that is making it to the top charts this year is a beautiful soft pink that is effortlessly charming. From pastel pink walls to just a pop of pink, this sweet hue is not one to be missed.

2. Bold Botanicals

Nature has always been a focus in decor but in 2016 it takes a bigger and bolder look. Larger than life florals, birds, trees and leaves help your home keep that eco-chic vibe while also playing with texture and size. Textiles to walls, this trend can be seen from top to bottom and everywhere in between.

3. Yes, Wallpaper!

We saw wallpaper take a huge leap last year and it is still going strong! This year we see natural surfaces take flight such as faux woods, brick and stone as well as retro style geometrics, metallics and wallpaper done in more soft and subtle hues. Also trending for the new year, wallpaper in the kitchen!

4. Deep Blues

The color blue might have been the star of 2015 but we are still continuing to watch it gain momentum. In 2016 expect to see a lot more indigo as well as pairings of blue and white. Coating textiles such as curtains, rugs and pillows to dinnerware and furniture, this fabulous trend is especially easy to incorporate into your own home.

5. Reclaimed & Repurposed

We’ve been seeing the appreciation for vintage materials and goods gradually increase throughout the years and 2016 is no different. From tiles that look to have been aged over time to wood planks chipped with paint, these imperfect textures and finishes are bigger than ever.

6. Glistening Gold

The color gold can truly transform a room. That’s why we weren’t surprised to see it among the top home decor trends once again. Coupled with other warm metallics such as copper and nickel, these glistening hues are definitely sticking around.

7. Welcoming Words

We’re no longer just seeing sweet sentiments such as love and home sweet home on doormats or signs that welcome you inside but we are seeing them all throughout the home. From words on the wall to bedspreads and pillows that speak happiness, 2016 is the year where our hopes, dreams, thoughts and more adorn all of our decor.

8. Chinoiserie Chic

Also making a splash in 2016, beautiful chinoiserie prints! With an Asian influence, these cultured designs feature graceful florals, harmonious toiles and elegant nature scenes that add an exotic touch to walls and textiles alike.

9. Fine Embellishments

Last but not least we love all the embellished finishes that are adorning linens, wall coverings, cushions, throws and more. Beautiful beading, luxe flock detailing and fabulous fringe are a few of our favorites.

Best Tips For An Organized Closet

Get Your Wardrobe in Order for 2016

The new year is a time to get things in order. A time to do the things you’ve been putting off for the past few months or even years.
One way to kickstart your new year is by organizing your closet. A clean closet will help to speed up your morning routine and buy you extra time to try out the healthy breakfast ideas you found on Pinterest!

Minimize

pair down your closet

Images via Pinterest

Paring down your closet is one of the most important ways to make it fresh and clean. No matter how well you organize, if there’s no space in your closet, there’s not much that a bin or shelf can do. When making the decision to keep or let something go, ask yourself:
Do I enjoy wearing this?
Does this fit?
Is this comfortable?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, it may be time to remove it from your closet. You can bring your clothes to donation centers, give them to a friend, sell them on resale sites, or recycle them into something new.

Color Code

Images via Pinterest

Organizing your closet by color can make it both aesthetically pleasing and easier to find things. Whether your closet is bursting with all the colors of the rainbow, or goes from black to grey to white, color coding makes for a clean looking closet. This can be done in minutes and doesn’t require anything other than a basic understanding of the color wheel.

Hide It Away

Images via Pinterest

 Bins, baskets, and suitcases are a great way to store items that can’t be hung, or are too bulky to store elsewhere. Sweaters, scarves, belts, and sheets can be put in these tidy containers and tucked away. Store them under the bed, on shelves, or on the floor of the your closet. This is especially great for tucking away seasonal items that you won’t need for a few months.

Coat Hanger Chic

Images via Pinterest

Images via Pinterest

The perfect way to polish off your closet is with matching coat hangers. Switching from an assortment of colors and types to one style of hanger instantly streamlines the look of a wardrobe. Velvet flocked hangers are great for holding slippery items of clothing, wire hangers have a thin design to maximize space, wooden hangers add a boutique feel, and plastic hangers are a great way to maintain a post-holiday budget.

Wait, I Don’t Have A Closet!

no closet tips

Images via Pinterest

No closet, no problem!
If you live in a dorm or apartment without a closet, there are ways to work around it. Use clothing racks, open shelving, and all of the tips above to make your wardrobe a centerpiece of your decor. With this design you’ll never forget about items in your wardrobe, and you’ll be able to admire your favorite pieces all the time.

5 Steps To Country Cottage Style

cottage

Image via Pinterest

Dreamy meadows, pastel hues, sunny mornings sipping tea on a secluded porch. The cottage lifestyle is one of slow serenity, ensconced in the time honored comforts of home.
Time moves a little slower. The light stays a little longer. The birds sing a little sweeter.

Our cottage style wallpaper is a memorable mix of old and new, where heirloom treasures harmonize with modern life. This beautiful assortment of fresh florals, vintage French prints, and shabby chic inspirations is full of picture perfect charm.

  1. Statement Furniture

StatementFurniture

Antique statement furniture is a way to immediately set the tone for a room. You can decorate the entire space around one piece by making it a focal point, or by pulling in other items to match the style.

2. Vintage Accessories

VintageAccessories

Images via Pinterest

Vintage accessories are an easy way to complete the look of a room. Classic cameras, delicate teacups, leather bound books, and antique suitcases add ambience and visual cues as to the mood of the room. A touch of whimsy and a hint of imperfection sets cottage style apart from French Provincial decor.

3. Beautiful Wallpaper

CottageWallpaper2

Wallpaper from The Cottage collection

One of the most impactful ways to give your home a country cottage makeover is with a beautiful wallpaper. Beautiful florals and toiles are classic patterns that will maintain their style for years to come.

4. A Little Sparkle

glam shabby chic decor

A crystal chandelier, a glass door knob, or a jeweled necklace carefully placed add just a touch of glamour. You can go as big or small as you like, just enough to catch the light.

5. Fresh Flowers

florals

Images via Pinterest

Not only will fresh flowers look beautiful, they’ll make your room smell amazing. Their aromatherapy properties will make for a relaxing environment, which is really what cottage style is about: enjoying the simple moments when the light filters through the window, when cookies come fresh out of the oven, when you have time to sit down and read the book you bought three years ago.

We were so excited to see the fabulous room that blogger, designer, and author Justina Blakeney created in her home using the Komar Into The Wild Wall Mural.
She knows that the inevitable winter is inching closer and closer, but it doesn’t mean your home has to become a snowy space. She writes:

As the colder months approach, cravings for the outdoors only grows. But turn your home into an indoor oasis, and you can enjoy a jungalicious retreat all year long! Use these simple tips, ideas and fun Fab pieces to turn your living room from mild to wild.

Justina gives five tips on how to create an oasis in your own home, the first being:

1.) Create Lush walls.

Do this by painting your walls a pretty, deep green or by hanging a jungalicious wall mural, like this Into The Wild Wall Mural. I hung the mural in our den and instantaneously the room felt wild, tropical and really, really fresh.
