Trendy Tuesday ~ Pantone's Color(s) of The Year 2016

I always look forward to hearing what Pantone dubs their "Color of the Year" as its usually right on trend with whats happening in the world of fashion and decor, and its a great way to start my Trendy Tuesday series for the year. Past colors of the year have included Marsala (2015), Radiant Orchid (2014), Emerald (2013) and Tangerine Tango (2012).  This year was a big surprise as Pantone announced for the first time ever not only one, but two colors of the year! They are Rose Quartz and Serenity.


The warm pink and cool blue tones are a match made in heaven. I've actually been crushing on blush tones for a while now so I'm tickled pink (ha! get it?! Corny I know...couldn't resist) about this years choice.

Lets take a look at how these two colors are being used together in interiors.

A year in review with Graham and Brown

I started on the journey of becoming an brand ambassador for Graham & Brown back in July, and it's hard to believe the year is just about over! I'm still loving the little enhancements to my home decor that Graham & Brown have helped me accomplish over the past 6 months.  Let's take a quick stroll down memory lane and rehash the trend forecasts over the past year! 
I started out creating some fun Instagram collages using Graham & Brown frames for the precious trend. I wanted to preserve all of my precious memories, and the frames were the perfect touch for this little corner in my living room.


The Horizon trend was inspired by nature, and these feather prints really helped make a statement in my kitchen!


But I think that my most favorite trend this year was the Industrial trend. I love how the  Lit Star added some pizzaz to my Industrial Holiday Bourbon Bar!



 I also revealed plans for the boys playroom while exploring the Eureka trend, which I am hoping to get started in early 2016. The Frames wallpaper is going to be perfect for this space!

An Industrial Holiday Bourbon Bar

I can't believe the end of the year is upon us, and we are reaching our final trend topic for Graham & Brown! 

This month, we will be talking about the ever so popular Industrial Trend. When I think industrial, I think of layered textures consisting of worn woods, aged metals, exposed lightbulbs, chalk boards, and rich, dark tones against white & black backgrounds. Graham & Brown has many products in their catalog that would give your home an industrial feel. One of my favorites is their Lit Star, which I decided to use in a small corner of our basement bar to create a fun & Industrial looking Bourbon bar... a staple for Holiday entertaining here in Kentucky!






The star is the perfect thing to bring a bit of light and sparkle into the space, and I love how its battery operated with LED lights, so there are no cords! 

 Heres a smattering of some other amazing product from Graham & Brown to help you create the Industrial feel in your home for the holidays, or any time of year for that matter!

Cheers!!

Trendy Tuesday ~ Shibori

There's a new buzz word in town: SHIBORI.

And if you've never heard of Shibori before, its the ancient Japanese art of..... tie-dye. And its everywhere right now.







1  /  2  /  3  /  4  /  5

I'm loving the Indigo hue we are seeing in most Shibori fabrics right now, but I'm also loving the more precise, geometric shapes of this modern day tie-dye. 

What do YOU think of the Shibori trend?! Love it? Or would you rather leave it in the 70's?!

If you love it, shop the trend and grab yourself some Shibori!

Modern Farmhouse

Confession time; I used to hate white interiors. Ack! I said it! But over time, they have slowly grown on me to the point that I now have a love affair with white walls and am this close to repainting my house all white. (Shhh….don’t tell my husband!) I also have a love affair with clean lines….and a good piece of worn wood furniture. Luckily Modern Farmhouse is a style where the two can marry and live happily ever after. 


Today I'm over at Remodelaholic sharing some blissfully beautiful Modern Farmhouse Interiors and chatting about how you can get the look in your own home. So pop on over and read the whole article! Plus find all the sources included in the mood board.

A Touch of Halloween

I was super late in putting up Halloween decorations this year and was tempted to skip it all together, but since we are hosting a Halloween party for my sons birthday this weekend, (and the kids were begging me!) I thought I would at least put the effort into decorating the main area of the house; the family room.






I didn't really do anything too drastically different from last year. Most of the decorations are the same, with the addition of a few shrunken skulls in glass jars that I picked up from Target.


I also created a small vignette on the sofa table with the same elements as the mantle. The creepy door knocker that broke is now 3D art, and an old and faded fake orchid stem got a fresh coat of black spray paint to up the spook factor.




The upstairs is ready for Halloween and the basement is being transformed into a super creepy kid friendly haunted house as we speak! Cole is ridiculously excited, so even if the decorations took a lot of work to put up for only a week, I knew it was well worth the effort when he hugged me last night and told me I was a "fun" Mom.
