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 was shopping around Home Goods (what else is new?) and noticed that they had tons of cute little paper covered boxes everywhere!  I just loved the brightly colored prints, they kind of remind me of Vera Bradley.

These could be cute in a home office or a little girl’s bedroom for organization.

Brilliant colors like Ruby, Amethyst, Citrine, and Sapphire to make your room sparkle, how could you not fall in love?  Jewel tones are one of my favorite color palettes to work, they are so rich and inviting, and maybe even a little risky.

Many of my clients love the look of hanging artwork in a gallery style but find it a daunting task to organize.  Here are a few simple tips that need to be followed if you want to create a cohesive gallery of artwork in your home.

First pull together all the pieces that you want in the gallery, and they definitely do not all have to be photographs.  You can include mirrors, mementos, pressed flowers, children’s artwork, paintings, sculptures, clothing, etc.

It is easy to get carried away with tons of your favorite pictures and end up with a wall full of clutter.  There must be one commonality amongst every piece of art whether it is the color of the photo, color of the frame, color of the mat, or size.  For example, if the frames are all different shapes, sizes, and colors, the photos should all be black and white.

Now, there are two ways to display the art: in a random pattern or an organized manner.  I find that when all of the pieces are the same size (maybe from the same series) and are hung in a grid, the effect can be very dramatic.  A more random pattern can have a more personal and casual feel.  The trick to laying out an asymmetrical arrangement is to have a common axis which the pieces are lined up on, this give a feeling of order to the chaos.

Regardless if the gallery is randomly arranged or not, the pieces should all be the same distance apart from the next, I usually like between 2 ½ inches to 5 inches all around, give or take depending on how large the wall and the art is.

Neon is definitely in this season, and when neon color meets color blocking, imagine what can happen!!

The trick is to limit how much neon color is used in the room, try to stick to only a few, simple elements: ie paint, window treatments, accessories, light fixtures- don’t go crazy with too much in one room.
