First you must remember to start with a solid. Either having an actual solid to break up the pattern or have a small pattern that gives the same effect as a solid color.  A fun way to add a solid is through a textured pillow, like a faux fur.

Design Tip: Hanging Chairs

Hanging chairs are a fun way to make a space feel more livable and casual. We like adding them to homes that don’t take themselves too seriously. With that said, they are not for everyone. If you want to make your space more playful and unique, a hanging chair might be just what you need to add.

These chairs need to be anchored properly from a ceiling joist in order to not damage your ceiling. To in sure they are installed correctly, we recommend having the chair installed by a handyman.

1//Different Shades

It is important to create contrast in a neutral space, by mixing different shades of  neutral colors. Don’t just stick to ivories, light grays and beige. Its most important to make your space not feel bland. Try to have a darker gray paired with a light ivory or a wood piece on top of a dark metal. You need to create layers of color to make the room feel cohesive and not boring.

Kitchen Sink Accessorizing

The most important pieces in a kitchen are the sink and the faucet. The sink that you choose should depend on your life style. If you are worried about washing large pots and pans, the single sink is probably the best option for you. Or maybe you are worried about having an area for dirty dishes and area for washing, in that case a double might for you. Just remember to choose something that will make you happy and put your life at ease.

We love a farm sink for a transitional or traditional look, and of course in the ever popular farm house home. Our two favorite finishes for farm sinks are a white fireclay and a stainless steel. We recommend choosing fireclay sinks because of how durable they are. They are a non-porous surface that will resist heat, stains, and cracking.
