3 Fabulous Floor Options

Bored with same old floor treatments, homeowners? Or love the rich warmth of hard woods, but don't have a budget to match?

Color of the Week: Yellow and Gray

This week, we’re switching our focus to color combinations since most of you probably don’t decorate in monochrome. And we’re starting off with the Power Couple of color combos: yellow and gray.

Seriously, yellow and gray are like that awesome couple you know that have totally different personalities, but are somehow magically on the same wavelength. They’re both cheerful and chill at the same time.

Happy (almost) Mother’s Day!

Today, we have a DIY post inspired by mothers everywhere: a DIY vanity. I’m not implying that mothers are vain or even spend more than two minutes in front of the mirror on any given hectic morning.

For the Mom who is practical, tasteful and always classy

You might be one of those people who think of gray as a dreary, gloomy color, but gray can be so luxurious. Gray is versatile – it comes in so many shades from elegant light gray to a warm, charcoal hue.

Also, because gray is a neutral, it has a relaxing effect. So it should be no surprise that as we collected gray interior photos for our Color Schemes Pinterest board, we saw so many in bedrooms! Here are some of our favorites:
