Hot in 2011

Gray wall colours.
In all undertones.

 Here are a few of the interior trends that seemed to be popular this past year. I wonder what will take their place in 2012?
Some other things not pictured: subway tile, white kitchen cabinetry (or has this been popular for a while?), crystal lamps, grasscloth wall coverings, oversized lantern pendants, steamer trunks and black front doors (which I love!).

Seagrass/woven furniture.

Weathered/Salvaged wood furniture.

Seagrass/sisal rugs and the
layered look.

Zesty Tropical

Burnt Orange Office

Happy Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years all in one... what a crazy month! Who knew that working 40 plus a week would leave no time for blogging and such....! I hope anyone reading had a wonderful Holiday season. I ate, drank and skyped my way through the holidays and enjoyed every minute.

I am super excited that all my favorite stores now have new "Spring Collections," (I know I'm not the only one to get excited when Pottery Barn let out a new catalogue!!) I was inspired enough to find a few minutes to post. I am in love with the stunning mirror above from Zinc Door. Just listen to the description:  "A tonal geometric and floral pattern in faux leather embellishes the rectangular frame of this faux bamboo mirror. With cane-inspired jointed borders, this wall accent brings natural sophistication to a bedroom, living room or entry." I know it's a bit late for this year, but I hope Santa is listening for Christmas 2012, I promise to be a good girl! 


My New Years resolution is to find more time to blog!

Cheers to a Happy, Healthy and Fulfilling 2012.
