I was feeling a little “edgy” today and decided to search for some “punk rock” influenced pieces.

I love the look of leather, bold contrast in color, exaggerated tufting, and studded pieces- this definitely defines “edgy” to me!

Black is a color that just never seems to go out of style.  Just like that “little black dress” that has been in your closet forever and can be worn for any occasion, black in interiors can feel timeless, classic, or a little bit daring.

I just love the new article that Benjamin Moore posted on the “Color Chats” page about grey paint!  “Fifty Shades of Gray” by Michelle Zakko shows ONLY a select 50 examples of their 232 shades of grey paint colors.  I love the photos and the refrences are a helpful tool for visualizing color options.

And the final countdown to my London trip is underway… 7 days until takeoff!

Which then leads me to preparing for 5 days of straight rain (according to weather.com) in the middle of the Summer.  But no need to despair…here are some fun rain-inspired design ideas to help lift up that rainy day gloom.

The Chevron is a very bold pattern that can make a really strong impact on a room.  A Chevron (also spelt Cheveron) is an inverted “V” shaped pattern typically seen in repetition.

This pattern can sometimes be difficult to work with and isn’t for everyone, but it’s certainly one to try to play around with!

If you don’t want to commit to incorporating it into your design completely, you can always bring the pattern in by using accents like pillows, blankets, rugs, and other smaller pieces that are easy to change out.

One of my favorite (and most subtle) ways  to use the Chevron is in a tile backsplash or a wood flooring.  Remember that the lighter the pattern, the less intense it will be as well.
