New Year new colors and Digital detox

I was thrilled when Fargerike announced Bluegreen as the color of the Year 2014 in November. With a fresh start, a new year and the spring coming up, I’m looking forward to test some of the beautiful bluegreen shades. This time I will try to explore some shades between iceblue and mintgreen. However first I am going to be even trendier, I will start the New Year with a digital detox.

 

New Year new colors and Digital detox

 

And no, Digital detox is not an online detox program after putting on some extra pound in the Christmas. The Oxford Dictionary explains Digital detox: “a period of time during which a person refrains from using electronic devices such as smartphones or computers, regarded as an opportunity to reduce stress or focus on social interaction in the physical world: Break free of your devices and go on a digital detox”. So while I’m free from the internet and tests new bluegreen shades in my home, I wish you a happy New Year and see you in a few weeks! Read More

Green Christmas home

In some ways color is for me more important than actual design elements. I always follow my intuition and choose the color which feels good in my surroundings. Since I like most colors I often switch but choose some colors more often than others. It might not come as a surprise, but I personally prefer green style Christmas decorations. Therefore there will be a green Christmas home for me this year!

 

Green Christmas home

 

In order to choose a proper color scheme for your Christmas decorations, think about what colors you already have. A good rule of thumb is to always choose colors that match or contrast nicely with your decor. Your color scheme can be made up of Christmas lights, ornaments, garlands, wreaths, ribbons, sequins and stockings, which are available in a variety of colors. You don’t need to totally redesign your home to create a cozy Christmas atmosphere. I prefer to use my everyday accessories, add some fresh flowers and just a few Christmas decorations to create a personal touch and a spirit of Christmas in my home. Read More
