Benjamin Moore’s color of the year is here!
A cool fresh blue that feels just as it’s name suggests – like a Breath of Fresh Air.
This color can easily be introduced into any home, traditional or contemporary for a burst of freshness. Try mixing it with warmer tones to counter act its coolness.
Happy Holidays!

Fall Trend

Jewel tones never go out of style, for fashion as well as interiors. These rich bold colors are classic, but can be bright at the same time and always quench a desire for something bold and deep.

Jewel tones can be added to almost any other color scheme that is relatively neutral, even if pastels are involved, for a burst of color. If you already have color, but its softer, try to choose a jewel tone in the same family to keep the scheme harmonious. // read more >

The rustic chic look is big now! The best way to pull it off is by mixing rustic and heavily distressed furniture and decor with contemporary pieces, colour palette and finishes. This gives a space balance between the two contrasting styles making it feel relaxed and warm, while making sure it doesn’t feel outdated or old. // read more >

Every one always says stick to neutrals when buying upholstery so that you can change the accent colours around it, but it can go both ways! Choose a bold upholstery colour and it will liven up the room, then you can change the neutral colours around it like wall, art and accessory colours. // read more >

Put up a couple of gallery shelves and fill them with pictures and eclectic art. No need to stick to a theme, be bold an experiment. With gallery shelves you can always change it up as your taste changes or you collect new art, no more pesky nail and screw holes to deal with when you want to change your pictures around! // read more >

Looking for a fresh new trend that you can add to your existing interior? Try ikat inspired prints and fabrics in fresh cool colours.

Play it safe and add a couple of toss pillows to your existing sofa, or go bold and wallpaper an accent wall!

This pattern influence has infiltrated the fashion industry and now we are seeing it pop up in interiors. Its been popular before, but now we are seeing ikat come alive with cleaner, fresher colours than previously. This pattern influence can really add a balance of geometric and organic shapes while being playful but classic.
