Buttery Yellow Color Ideas for Your Home

August 24th, 2015

Yellow color palettes for home decor come in many variations from the palest of pale background shades to bright “in your face” wake up hues. Today, we’re sharing one of our favorite yellows, a soft buttery tone that’s warm and inviting while maintaining a quiet elegance.


We love this yellow hue on the front door. Don’t you think it says, “Welcome, come in and visit for a while.”

Velvet sofas are at the top of many “must have for my home” lists. Color them buttery yellow and they’re even more coveted. Color and texture come together beautifully in this lovely pair of lush sofas.

Yellow Accents on the Deck

When bringing the look of yellow outside on to the deck, choose shades that take it to the darker side of buttery yellow so the color will be beautiful rather than washed out.

From Living Rooms to Outdoor Spaces: Decorating with Pale Pink

August 10th, 2015

Those who love pink in all its appealing shades are always happy to see that there is no shortage of images of pretty pink rooms to be found online. Lately, we’ve been noticing lots of pale pink home decor both indoors and out. We hope you will enjoy seeing some of our favorites:

Pink Wall

Pink around the pool can be fabulous, but who knew how stunning a pink wall could be?

Pink Pillow

A single pale pink pillow is awesome on a navy blue sofa, bringing a spot of serenity amongst bold color and pattern.

Pink Sideboard

We don’t often think rustic when we envision pink painted wood. But, this aged pink finish seems just right for a touch of rustic in a pretty eclectic space.

Pink Sofa

Designed to captivate, this sophisticated living space is lovely in pink and red. What do you think?

Pink Dining Room

Blush is irresistible as a background color in the dining room. Here, it’s beautiful, creating a charming glow and a lovely contrast to white painted floors and woodwork.

Pink Soffa

Pink can also work well in contemporary or modern spaces. A pretty pink sofa is perfect in this cool room with a great retro feel.

Pink Closet

A splash of pink can add the perfect feminine touch to a closet or dressing room.

Pink Outdoor Living Space

Take pink outside to create a most inviting outdoor living room. Watercolor fabrics in color combinations that feature lovely pink hues are fantastic in this conversation area.

Decorating the Porch: Tips & Ideas

June 25th, 2015

For those fortunate enough to have a porch to enjoy, this one’s for you. Whether large or small, at the front of the house or with a view of the backyard, any porch can be turned into a charming and comfortable outdoor living space. Here are tips and ideas to inspire you:

Front Porch

In the US many will soon be celebrating the Fourth of July with red, white and blue on the porch. A vibrant hue on the front door is s fantastic contrast to this gray house.

Front Porch

Make your front porch as inviting as a spa getaway. Gray and yellow striped rattan chaise lounges are lined up in a row on this fabulous porch.

Front Porch

Orange and blue make a bold color statement on this comfortable porch. If you love splashes of color, the porch is great place to indulge your color dreams.

Front Porch

Gray is accented with turquoise, a beautiful color combination whether your porch is by the sea or you just want to decorate like you have a view of the sand and the water while you relax outside.

Front Porch

White and navy blue is a color duo that has stood the test of time. This white-columned porch goes chic and stylish with white slipcovers and lovely patterned throw pillows.

Back Porch

Curtain panels can bring a charming look to the back porch. Here, blue and white horizontal stripes frame and soften the openings between stone columns.

Front Porch

A closed-in front porch can be transformed into a lovely entryway with a round table and hanging lantern pendant. We think this look is at once beautiful and practical.

Front Porch

Here’s another example of decorating the porch with bold color. Vibrant green is a great accent to the wide red and gold stripes that cover cushions on the vintage wicker seating. We love the soft red rug on the floor.
