This is a very chic design. I love everything about this space; the wallpaper adds so much to the room. The sofa is pink yet still retains a sophisticated look.

This room is simply lovely. It shows you how to use pink in subtle ways and still make a statement.

This bold of a room would probably work best for a college girl or bachelorette. Many women love pink but for someone with a husband, this spaces would not work, unless he was very understanding.

Country Living
I like everything about this room except the rug, it feels too old for the space. The rest of the space is young and fresh.

The black side table/dresser is a great idea for those like myself who enjoy refurbishing furniture.

Pink is another one of those colors that is best used as an accent color. If it's your favorite color and would love to use it in your home, use some of the ideas above to help you decide how you would like to display the pink. I personally love pink and used it in my bedroom as an accent color with grey, and it looks really cute. It gives my room a girly flare. As we all know, pink is usually used in little girls rooms to express femininity. But when we all grow up and still like little things that make us feel like a kid, why not throw in some pink to bring back the inner- sophisticated little girl. :)

I think this room is my favorite. Yellow is a hard color to work with and I think that it has found its match. Yellow and grey work so well with each other, so I tried to find a few examples. I also love the different texture used, the animal print rug, the fuzzy blankets draped over the chairs, the sleek floor, and the sleek leather on the chairs. That chandelier is beyond beautiful, I want to recreate this room soooo badly!

The grey is very faint, but this room is just to precious with the purple and grey!

Grey is color you paint a room that you want to feel relaxed in. It is such a soothing color and very chic. Grey is just the beginning of the many posts I will be posting on color. Whether you paint a whole room, a single wall, or use it in accent pieces, these pictures will show you how to use your favorite color, or colors in your home in a tasteful way.

I'm going to keep posting beautiful pictures like this because I want this to be something my potential clients look at for ideas for their spaces. It also is here for whom ever reads this that loves to look at interiors. When you do hire an interior decorator or designer it is always a good idea to do some of your own research. Pull pictures out of magazines, books, and the internet of interiors that catch your eye. That is something that I ask my clients to do, this makes it a lot easier to please them. It also eases their mind, knowing that their decorator is going to use ideas that they already approved of. So if you are planning to change your house around, whether its in a few weeks, months, or even years, collect as many pictures as you can!

As you can see in the images above there are many different ways to have exposed beams. A lot of the time the beams are there for actual support, but some times they are attached to the ceiling for a decorative touch. Beams are a simple way to make a statement in any room. The prices would range from fairly inexpensive to outrageously expensive. It would all depend on the type and size of wood. You also get two completely different looks, when using stained beams and painted. The stained is definitely more rustic, and the painted beams are a more fresh look. I used to hate the rustic kind, there were in my grandparents living room, when the renovated the house they painted over them, and at the time I thought that was a great idea. When it came time to sell the house I was admiring the ceiling and realized the beams would of looked so much better dark again, but the house sold anyways. So it is really up in the air for me which one I like better.
