I'm baaaaack! I took a little hiatus from my blog while I was busy preparing some presentations in the last couple of months. And now it's spring!
I always feel more energetic and motivated at this time of year. It's like I break free from the chrysalis of winter and begin to spread my wings. With the warmer weather and longer days, I start to plan spring/summer projects, get out to more networking events, get back into a groove at the gym, and am generally in a much better mood. Aside from it being allergy season, this could be my favorite season of the year.
It's also exciting to me to see all of the new, colorful seasonal home décor in the stores. Tangerine is the color of 2012. Check out these beautiful ways to incorporate this vibrant color into your décor this spring/summer. Not only tangerine, but all deep gemstone colors are trending right now. Pair them with a softer tan or gray and they really pop! What a gorgeous look!
If you're a little wary of bringing such bold color into your space, there's no need to paint an entire wall with it. Test it out with some smaller accessories. Remember to use the color in three places throughout the space to evenly incorporate it and allow your eyes to scan the room and find interest. By using a new or bolder color in small doses, it gives your room some pizzazz and is easier and less costly to change out when you're ready to move on.
