Spring Inspiration!

Spring is officially here! Break out those Spring colors, dust off the bookshelves, uncover those lounge chairs, and sit back as we bring some beach inspired colors.

Pops of color – especially blue can add dimension and depth to any bookcase. (Top left) These bookcases are perfectly accessorized. When accessorizing your bookcase remember to stack the books horizontally and then put a trinket on them, this gives the eye visual levels and fills up the space within the bookcases.

Need a beach themed iphone case? Be sure to check out these from ShorelyChic. They can be found on Liz’s esty store. (They are are so cute Liz!)

Tight on space this Spring, try hanging our herbs in a door shoe caddy.

Love shells, but do not know how to tastyfull use them throughout the house, accent your fireplace!  


LOVE absolutely love these paints.



Above, our very own color scheme of blues for a project Molly and Brittany are working on at Figure 8.


As designers we are constantly inspired by color. Kravet and Ann Sacks have perfect blue patterns.

2010 High Point Market Preview: What Color To Expect!

2010 color shades of blue

We are expecting to see shades and tones of turquoise this spring at High Point Furniture Market. That’s right, take a back seat beige and brown and let the royal and sea-foam blues take the spotlight!

Pantone even has “Lagoon” named one of the top colors for the 2010 Fashion Color Report. This color trend is even splashing into both the fashion and home industries around the world.

Below are two ways to incorporate shades of blue into your home from House Beautiful.




You can also accent areas in your bathroom or kitchen with shades of blue tile.

This kitchen from Traditional Home  uses a navy blue tiles to accent the wall behind the stove. 


I love this kitchen picture from Coastal Living. Those chair seat covers are so creative!



The HFB 2010 eMarket Preview  says this year it is about making a statement and people are looking to infuse their rooms with color, while not having to redo the entire room. Naturally color stimulates your mood and this is exactly what fabric and furniture companies are trying to achieve this spring market. This is also referred to as the Lipstick theory, which means that people want to buy something inexpensive to spice up a room, create a calming mood or buy a pillow that is just plain fun!
