It has been awhile since "Greek blue" has made such an impact in fashion....the translation into home decor will be next.
The runways are full of the next color trends in fashion...these trends carry over into the home interior market. The latest trend is a "Renaissance Pallet. Consider the paintings of that time and you will see what I mean.
Your art collection doesn't match the couch.
Original art pieces rarely do... and that's not why you purchased them.
Evenly spaced art pieces have a look of cohesiveness to them.
Consider layering them all in one place...sort of a gallery look.
I have one of these in my home. While the easel is designed to hold one piece, I have stacked pieces above and below...I like the look.
Look for the next trend in home interiors to be layering...layering rugs, layering textures..
Similar textures and tones blend well in this room. While the furniture is quite modern, the "ethnic" feel of the rugs keeps it from looking sterile. The addition of the throw pillows and throws warm up what could be a cool, or uninviting room.
Multiple area rugs in a similar jewel tones. Placing one on the diagonal keeps it from looking like you just don't have a rug that is large enough!
Themed rooms look best with rugs in the same style. An animal skin, faux or real, draws the eye down.

I love Julia Child's Kitchen. First of all it was made for her. This amazing woman was 6 feet tall...
I can sympathize with her as I am 5'10". She had her counters raised to be comfortable for her height.
She was also not afraid of displaying everything out in the open. Her tools were at the ready! One of the ways she achieved this with the peg boards. Now I won't say that I'm a huge fan...but lately I have become intrigued by them.
I want to expand my ideas about peg board. Here are some new ways to use it in your home.
Rethinking jewelry storage with pegboard...I
especially like the use of coat hooks as a hanging method.
Retail display for drawer knobs...note the stencil used on the peg board.
I have a collection of drawer knobs sitting around...stay tuned for what I create
with them and the peg board.

The series Mad Men is entering it's last season. We have so enjoyed the story lines and have swooned over the amazing fashion and interior design. They have stayed true to the era and have inspired us to revisit the style and swag of the 1960's.
