We are going retro mod...way back to the 60‘s where design was about curvy forms, vibrant colors, and eccentric patterns. Leave your design fears at the door and go over board with patterns and colors.
Get design inspired by a 60’s outfit. Pull color options from an outfit as well as playful patterns. Incorporate the look into your room to give the same fresh and fun vibe as the outfit.
Try a painted design on a table top using FrogTape®. Use metallic paint with glossy white to create a pattern with added opulence and gloss.
What do you get when you mix bold patterns with neutral colors? If you answered TEXTURE, you are correct. This is a beautiful way to add some drama and what appears to be “texture” to any space. What I love about neutral patterns is that it is easy to mix and match with other patterns as well as colors.
Try using FrogTape®/ShapeTape to create shapes and patterns on the wall or on your floors. These neutral patterns are playful yet classic, simple yet detailed. Really, how can you go wrong?
Each year we see a particular metal rise to the top of every designer list. Last year it was brass and the year before was pewter. This year its all about copper. The natural patina combined with the shine exudes an industrial warmth unmatched by any other metal.
A small piece can make quite a statement.
Use copper sheeting as a backdrop to a bed or an accent wall. Try it as a backsplash. Use just one hanging light fixture in copper. It will certainly be a conversation piece! If the copper commitment makes you a little nervous, a few copper pots might get you to slowly fall in love with this stunning metal.
The idea of a “gallery” is to feature something that is uniquely you. Sketches, spoons, antique mirrors, postcards, you name it- these are all items that you can showcase in your gallery. 2015 is all about YOU.
Try displaying your gallery in these fun ways:
• Use yellow or green FrogTape® to tape the corners of your doodles, sketches, and memories to create an informal and playful wall display.
• Hang various size frames in a well thought out cluster on the wall. Paint different portions of each frame to add a pop of color and give it a cohesive gallery feel.
• Showcase your collections. Display a group of similar items such as antlers, spoons, antique doorknobs, or even crayons. When people walk into your home, they’ll know exactly what you love! d. Keep it simple and use the same frames in a grid pattern with different artwork in each.
