All white coastal living room with pops of blue and turquoiseWe love when a designer goes all white. It’s fresh, clean and looks beautiful. We also love pops of color in a space to give our eyes little treats to enjoy. So what happens when you take your blank white canvas and paint it with colorful accessories? Pure magic.

The best way to show off your color choices is to cut out all the competition. When they don’t have to compete with other colors in the surrounding space they can really stand out. All white rooms, or rooms that are very neutral color based, give your colors a space to do what they do best – pop. So check out some of these spaces and see how these designers painted their canvases with colored accessories.

There’s no need to go to the party supply store to grab anything and everything red, white or blue and plastered with little American Flags, because this year you are going to accessorize your home with the perfect touch of independence.

We’re talking about decorating with red, white and blue accessories and flowers throughout the home. These little pops of color will act like fireworks on the Fourth of July! Plus you can use them again next year or even throughout the year instead of throwing everything out and buying everything over again next year.

Don’t be afraid to love your country and be patriotic!

Coastal living room with natural light and natural inspired decorWe think it’s time you open up the doors and windows to create a laid back, open feeling in your home. Spring starts to bring us weather that we want to joy outside, so why not create a space that brings in the fresh air and opens up the home to the world to do that?

Creating this feeling isn’t just for the blessed that have beach front property and the luxury of an open floor plans paired with high ceilings. We aren’t going to lie to you guys, that definitely helps – like it really helps. But what about those who aren’t that fortunate? How do you create this in your home? There a couple ways to achieve this feeling in a not so open floor plan home. It’s actually a lot more achievable than you’d think!

First, let as much light in as possible by opening the windows. This will help get fresh air in the space and create a brighter space. It seems so easy and cliche, but really it helps.

Second, keep your decor simple – think essentials only. This cuts the clutter and makes more space which creates room and empty space to help open up the home. Less equals more! Simple!

Third, decorate with lighter colors. This is a must. Darker colors will make a space feel smaller. This isn’t always the case, but for this style it is (if you must use dark colors think of colors in weights and go heavy to light). Neutral colors and lighter colors are your friends and will help make the space feel open and fresh.

As always, we won’t leave you guys empty handed without any visuals. These beautiful spaces are what we’re talking about. Check out the work of these designers and use them as inspiration to create the home you want!
