With lawns filling up with bright green blades of grass and patches of sunny dandelions, it’s clear that June is here! This month may be known for those nasty bugs, but this colour palette highlights fresh, saturated shades!

Sunshine and milder temperatures, make June an ideal time of year to add some charm to your exterior. If you’re not blessed with a green thumb, why not paint your patio door green?

Adding a bold accent to a fairly muted room really adds some cheer, but I tend to shy away from overlapping bold shades. However, there are always exceptions! I am totally in love with this bright and beautiful family room! The coloured silhouettes on this bold yellow wall with stand out end tables are so unique! The white accents keep the room from looking chaotic.

This modern kitchen uses fresh lime countertops with yellow woods to create an airy, happy kitchen! This seems like the perfect backdrop to a glass of OJ and eggs sunny side up!

A more muted shade of yellow looks great for a nursery! This keeps the room calm, without looking dull. As the kids get older brighter bolder shades and pattern add more energy to a bedroom, making a more enjoyable space for sleepovers and playtime. Finally, a painted bed frame looks awesome in a teen room–though I think the style is easily adapted for anyone!

Lastly, I love the spash of sunshine in the bathroom! A sunflower yellow looks unbelievably nice as a backsplash, but a quick easy update can be made by spray painting an antique mirror a glossy daffodil hue!

What do you guys think? Would you colour your interior with shades inspired by a fresh lawn?

 

 

 

Colour Palette of the Month: September

It’s that time again! It’s time to unveil our choice for September’s Colour Palette of the Month!

 

This month we’ve chosen a palette that blends warm and cool tones and integrates the “yellowing” of the fall leaves. We think that just like the turning colour of the leaves, this dash of mustard next to the browns and greys will make your space pop. Not only does this palette convey all the warm and fuzzy feelings of fall but it is also very modern in its use of mustard and grey. While we think that this palette is perfect for any living room or master bedroom we also think that it would be dramatic as a bathroom colour palette. What do you think? What room would you use the palette for?

 

Design Inspiration: Flooring

Brown, blue, or brick, it matters what your floors look like. Keeping your home looking fresh, modern, inviting, and clean can have a lot to do with what floorings you choose. No matter if your designing your new martell dream home or just spicing up your old one, choosing the right flooring is key.

 

Before choosing what type of flooring you should get, first you need to identify a feel or theme that you’re going for in the home as a whole and for the individual spaces (rustic, modern, country, etc). After you’ve chosen a theme or feel then it’s time to choose a type of flooring, will it be hardwood? Tile? Ceramic?

If you’re having a hard time choosing (and we know what a hard choice it can be!), we’ve pulled together a some images showing the different styles, themes, and types of flooring that you could be using in your home! We hope it gives you the inspiration your looking for and if you want more, check us out on Pinterest!
