Happy New Year!  One of my resolutions is going to be having blooming plants in my apartment.  During the winter months, it is very warming to have flowers around your space.  It adds cheer to the cold months, and adds color and a feeling of the spring to come.  Sometimes it is just the simplest things that add a sense of cheer and well-being to our lives.

Much luck and love in 2013!

Texture along with color make a room interesting. The weave of a fabric can be art in itself. I have always loved the titles given to certain fabrics and the color names; it lures you into using them in your own apartment…if only a touch of it. Maybe just a pillow or two will satisfy! Perhaps just a little accent color from a favorite painting…

Sigh!

One of my favorite blogs is The Tao of Dana.  I have her to thank for these great pics of animal prints to excite a room.  With Valentine’s Day coming, we can add fire without using the color red or pink…try animal prints.   She says, “…animal prints can be a sexy way to add fire when you don’t want so much color. For many- like myself- you can “feel” more fire from an exotic print than from pure color.  Also, it doesn’t take much leopard, panther, tiger or zebra to make a very big statement.  I’ve collected some inspiring ways to bring the exotic fire of safari indoors for you, so keep reading… !”.

The bookcases make this work.  This is all a busy person needs, keeping it simple yet beautiful.

This is a great look look…the ultimate in clean lines.

This wall art is simple and effective.  The height that the pieces are hung works nicely as a backdrop to the seating in the room.
