It's always an exciting day when Pantone announces their pick for Color of the Year! Emerald is their choice for 2013 and I'm very pleased...it looks fantastic with turquoise! According to Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, green is the most abundant hue in nature. The human eye actually sees more of it than any other color in the spectrum. I'm thinking green and blue has to be Mother Nature's favorite color combo! You can read all about Emerald and why they chose it over at Pantone!

Batik Interiores












With so many fabulous pieces, it was no surprise to learn that homeowner Beatriz Silveira also owns Batik Interiores, a design shop in Madrid. I love how loads of natural light and a serene palette give the apartment a sense of space, with a cozy, warm feel. The wood floors and wooden furniture–especially the classic Wishbone Chairs, are just beautiful too!! You can tour more of the home over at Micasa!

Sand & Sisal Laundry Room

Laundry rooms aren't usually the first spaces to get decorated, but I feel like we ALL love and appreciate a pretty laundry room! Kim Wilson of Sand & Sisal decided that since she had to spend so much of her time doing laundry ("with two messy teen girls, two dirty, sweaty, little boys, a hubs who never unrolls his gym socks!" Ha!!), then her laundry room had to at least be beautiful! She did a stellar job on the makeover, don't you think?? She used one of my favorite paint colors on the walls–"Rainwashed" by Sherwin Williams. I especially love it next to the fresh white beadboard ceiling and crown molding that they installed. The sorting station is absolutely genius too!! Read all about this inspiring space and see lots more pics (including before's) right here!

Elizabeth Hague Interiors




















We spent this past weekend decorating our home for the holiday, now it's time to decorate the blog! When the owners of this cozy mountain home moved from D.C. to Park City, Utah, they hired interior designer Elizabeth Hague and architect George Myers to design them a home with a traditional Eastern aesthetic...no typical timbered mountain home for this family! The beautiful fabrics and rugs inspired the paint colors, and get this, Elizabeth chose more than 30 different shades (I'll share a few below). Finish your tour of the home with more photographs by John Granen, and read the heartwarming story over at Traditional Home!


Paint Sources
Master Sitting Room: "Serene Breeze" #449 Benjamin Moore
Dining Room: "Pale Smoke" #1584 Benjamin Moore
Living Room: "Sea Salt" #SW6204 Sherwin-Williams

My favorite feature in November's issue of Lonny was this Hollywood Hills home belonging to interior designer Mark D. Sikes. The dining room took my breath away with the stunning hand-painted Gracie Chinoiserie wallpaper, but I also adore the bathroom with the hand-painted Portuguese tiles! Wish I could snag that entire breakfast area for myself too...love those director's chairs! You can see lots more photos by Patrick Cline and read the article here! And definitely visit Mark's blog Chic People, Glamorous Places, Stylish Things!

Oh and here's a beautiful bonus photo of the bedroom by Amy Neunsinger from Mark D. Sikes website! So pretty!
