Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there!  In honor of you today, here is an amazing “Man Cave” for you to escape to.

 

 

I love the dark paint with the light wood and cream accents, very sexy and sophisticated.  The antler accents on the coffee table add a strong masculine touch, and what says “manly” more than black leather?

Who says a “Man Cave” has to feel like a college fraternity house with neon beer signs and football posters hung on the wall?  It doesn’t!!

It really seems like gray, brown, and taupe neutrals are HOT right now!  Same with blue-gray and green-grays, I just love this cool palette, especially since it is so hot outside this summer!!

We all know that Martha Stewart is the “Queen of Decorating and DIY”, so I wanted to post about her “supernatural color palette”.  This palette consists 18 colors that Martha has composed together to make our lives a little less complicated when it comes to color selection and pairing for your home.

What is so wonderful about this collection is that all of these colors seem to work perfectly well whether your style is traditional, modern, eclectic, or transitional.  They will add a little bit of sophisticated color that is still somewhat neutral, so no need to be scared!

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.
