  1. Earth Tones

Using earth tones in the home serves as a way to incorporate nature and a feeling of balance in your space. Some earth tones include soft blush pink, mint, warm brown (both light and dark), black, gray, olive green, and indigo. When mixed with white designs, earth tones stand out beautifully, making a statement on walls and cabinets. Warm colors can also give the same feeling as earth tones. Warm hues include shades such as browns, tans, creams, and other soft neutrals. These shades invite a feeling of relaxation and comfort into a space. It is said that warm colors create an energetic space, but at the same time, creates balance. A way to incorporate these shades into your home is by using a wall as an earth toned accent wall. This is a simple way to introduce energy and color into a plain space. Light also plays a key role in this design. If the space has minimal light use a cooler tone. This will aid in brightening...

5 Vital COVID-19 Rules to Follow

“One moment of patience may ward off great disaster. One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life.”Chinese Proverb

  1. WEAR YOUR MASK

We don’t know how to stress this enough: wear your mask. This is just as crucial for those feeling ill as much as for those who seem to not have any symptoms; you can be asymptomatic and still test positive for COVID-19. For those who think they may have the virus, it is important that you get tested and stay away from others until you receive your results, because the last thing you would want to do is infect those around you. Also, you don’t know who is high-risk and who is not. Even if they themselves aren’t high-risk, they could spread it to their loved ones who are in fact high-risk. If you properly wear a mask in public...

5 Easy Home Improvements

  1. Repaint

Who doesn’t love a new splash of color to change the look of a room? Color plays a key role in the design of any room because it rearranges reality. Generally, light and cool colors tend to open up a room. The kitchen makes for a great space for light colors. Dark and warm colors draw a space in. A basement could be a great spot to utilize dark colors. Make a decision on a new color based on what you think the space needs and what that room will be used for. A cool trick you can try is painting the ceiling. If a room is very large and doesn't feel all that comfy, try painting the ceiling. You want to paint it a darker color than the walls. This will make the ceiling appear lower and give a feeling of coziness to a room that once felt too spacious. This can also be done for rooms that feel too confined. If space feels tight, paint the ceiling a light color versus dark. A light color will expand the height of the ceiling verses shrink. The result will be a room that feels spacious and open.

4 Efficient Ways to Organize Your Pantry

Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.

-A. A. Milne

  1. Dump Out the Old

No matter the size of your pantry, giving it a deep cleaning should be the first task on your list. You can start by taking everything out at once or by working top to bottom. When taking items out it’s important to develop a system. Having a simple keep and discard system will do just fine. For the items you wish to dispose of, if they are still good and you are able to donate them to a food bank, we encourage you to do so. For the things you wish to keep, sort out every item into categories. An essential item to add to your pantry in deep cleaning are shelf liners. Not only do they add a layer or protection to the shelf, it makes cleaning up any mess a breeze. On top of that, it gives shelves a polished look. Lastly, vacuum and clean the floors. Now you have a blank and clean canvas to work with!

4 Easy Ways to Create the Illusion of Space

“Design is coming to grips with one's real lifestyle, one's real place in the world. Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one's well-being.” 

- Albert Hadley

 

  1. Use Light Paint Shades

Light colors give the illusion of a bigger space. Light and bright walls are reflective, and when paired with natural light, allows for space to be created. On the other side of the spectrum, dark colors absorb light, and can easily give the illusion of a smaller space. This shows just how important it is to choose the correct shades for the room you wish to open up. Some popular light shades include: beige, light gray and eggshell white. Many people like to avoid painting their walls a stark white because of something called the “white box syndrome”, a space that is labeled as a room with no personality due to bland walls. Of course, this doesn’t mean white is completely off the table. Sometimes it can give off the popular industrial design style look. The best part about designing your own space is that the design is...
