This March we are all about the blue tones, and Aqua Sky is exactly what spring calls for! This lovely color can be paired with just about anything to add a little brightness to your space. Pair it with a warm coral or cool green, or you can make it pop even more with a neutral background.

A Summer Well Spent
Between bathroom renovations, kitchen remodels, furniture installs, window treatments, half a dozen Airbnb projects and keeping our current clients happy, we've had an eventful summer! Here's a look inside some of our most recent work!
Shedding Light on Lamps
Lamps seem simple enough. Plug them in, flip them on, and you're good to go! But they play a bigger role in pulling a room together than you may think. The wrong lamp (or lamps -- they work best in pairs!) can disrupt a design both in visual aesthetics and practicality. Here are a few things to consider when purchasing lamps:
How's the height? The taller the lamp, the better. Depending on their purpose, you typically want a lamp that is at least 30 inches tall. If you are using a lamp for reading light, the shade should come to just above your shoulder when you are sitting down in a chair. Also remember that if you are shopping for lamps online, carefully read through the dimensions before purchasing. Photos can often make lamps look larger than they are.
And the shade? The color and fabric of a lamp shade can drastically affect how light is diffused in a room. Think about the day-to-day use of the lamp before settling on a shade. Black shades are cool and edgy but won't provide as much light as a lighter color. Similarly, burlap shades are very popular right now, but the heavy fabric restricts the light.
What about the base? Finally, consider what the body of the lamp is made of. Whether it is glass, marble, concrete or ceramic, the base can be an easy way to add color to a room and pull a space together. Glass lamps work best is smaller rooms because of their transparency but be sure they don't get lost in the background if working in a larger room.
Beating the Winter Blues
Don't let small rooms give you the blues. Use these tips to create the illusion that your bedroom is bigger than it is.
1. Skip the headboard. Headboards can be a statement piece in big bedrooms, but in small spaces, they're often too clunky. Trade your headboard for mirrors, which make any room appear larger.
2. Raise the curtains. This is a golden rule in almost any space, but it's especially important in small areas. Take your curtain rod to the ceiling to add height that's not really there.
3. Keep the colors simple. A monochromatic color scheme with subtle patterns is best in small rooms. Use varying shades of the same hue to create a cozy but collected effect.
