A Collection of Colorful Goods For Your Kitchen

Uniting all dish towel lovers for this post. If you're not a fan of awesome dish towels, it will suffice if you are a fan of really cool patterns printed on textiles. If you haven't checked out the online shop Leif, make sure to do so. They have some incredibly unique and really cool stuff on their website from decor accessories, paper, candles, and much more.

I found a fun collection of items that are sure to spruce up any kitchen quite fast. The paint chip placemat is a perfect addition to any table. And, it comes in different colors, so you can mix and match or just play it safe with one color all around.

Leif definitely covered all the popular patterns of the moment in their textiles section of this online shop. Houndstooth is becoming an increasingly popular option, and I think this design and color palette would surely brighten up any room, don't you?

Cityscapes! Talk about a different take on a cityscape. Great addition to my tea towel collection.

I love the bright colors in this lattice design. This might just be my favorite, if there was a way I could choose a favorite.

And just for fun, I love their take on bottles that we have all the time in our home anyway. These vases were created from dish detergent and yogurt bottles. Awesome.

Which pattern your favorite? And do you love these vases? Now it is your turn, create some fun palettes from these cool dish towels.

Comment to let us know your thoughts and make sure you pin your faves!

Color Lovin' Your Garage Door

Some may think the garage is merely a place to hide the fact that you drive an SUV keep your vehicle & all the stuff you'll probably never use again safe from the elements. But remember all those other great things that have come out of garages? : bands, inventions, companies, etc. The garage is really a conveniently located creative space to explore your latest idea, so it's nice to see that some people are reflecting the creativity going on behind the door outwardly by giving their doors some color lovin'.

Interior Design Trends: Green & Yellow

One of the things that can help uplift your mood is a bit of certain colors. Rich, fun  and bright tones seem to work well. Green and yellow is a nice marriage of tones and always makes me think of lemon and lime. They seem to be big in certain items throughout the Spring and Summer months, which makes perfect sense since they pair up nicely and give off a cheerful feel. Do these two give you are positive feeling?

Interior Design Trends: Yellow, Black & White

As the warm weather approaches  I find myself mentally preparing for the upcoming season. Certain things, such as fashions and soirees, enter your mind and you begin to anticipate what is in store and what colors you might wish to see. Bold, bright, airy and cheery colors are usually what I envision. And yellow (bright and cheery), black (bold) and white (airy) are what are currently on my mind.

Interior Design Trends: Orange & Blue

I have to say, when I hear or see orange and blue together the New York Knicks come to mind. Doesn't really seem appealing when it comes to to home decor, does it? Well, even though these two colors seem as if they would not fit properly as decor, they certainly can. A toned down, softer version of the color duo can be refreshing in small doses. Just look at these examples. How do you feel about orange and blue being used together in the home?

Create A Colorful Terrarium

Terrariums are small glass enclosed gardens that first became fashionable in the 70's and then fell out of style like brown analogous wallpaper. But thanks to the green movement they are definitely back in style. Now a whole new group of people will discover their simple beauty and inspiring colors that not only add a nice touch to home decor but help build a closer relationship to nature.

Below you'll find inspiration and some links to help you get started creating your own colorful terrarium.

Where to Buy Terrariums

A quick search found terrariums more suited for the lizard in your 3rd grade class than your living room, so your best bet is to start from the bottom or find a kit and then use your own container, but If you're looking for a jump start try these out: Litill | Etsy

Interior Design Trends: Kelly Green And Navy

Navy and kelly green is a timeless combo. I personally associate it with preppies, whom I happen to love. Though it seems timeless, I found while browsing objects that there really weren't that many to view consisting of these two colors. Do you own anything that is kelly green and navy?
