YOUR FIRST CRAYON BOX
YOUR FIRST CRAYON BOX
Basically, think back to your first box of crayons and you will find all the answers to the hottest colors this year. Chinese red, tangerine orange, lemon yellow, turquoise blue, grass green, black and white. All bright and saturated with the exceptions of a few tamed down colors. Dusty purple (the new Mauve) and a gray taupe. A perfect blend of earthy brown with a touch of gray.

THE WRITTEN WORD
Inspiration words and thought as artwork have been creeping up on the design world for a few years now under a country decorating style. Well, they have entered the design world at full steam in every genre of decor. Look for single words to long phrases as artwork and the single letter as a piece of art. Its a perfect way to have your home tell something about you.
