A bathroom renovation is one of the top ways in which to increase the value of one’s home. Of all the spaces in a home, this is one that can really define mood, as it is the first place you go when you wake up and the last place you go before you turn in for the night.

Pantone's Color of the Year is always announced in December and is a symbolic color selection, or snapshot, of "what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood or an attitude." Not only is it symbolic, but it is also a nod to color trends and influences and how those colors are embraced by mainstream consumers in home interiors, fashion, technology and gra
Black, the color that technically is not a color, can add so much drama to a room. Used sparingly as an accent, or displayed in large doses, black certainly makes a statement.The all black kitchen is a bold design decision and makes for a striking space.
We, as humans, are sensory beings. Since the dawn of mankind, our senses of touch and sight have contributed to our knowledge of the world around us, evoking emotions such as joy, fear, love and curiosity to name a few.
