A look back, A move Forward

How will you spend it? I always look forward to all the festivities of New Year's Eve. I love all the bright lights, shimmer and the sound of cheer as we turn the pages to another chapter. All together, its been a year of much learning and trusting in the faith of tomorrow. There were a few roads I will never walk down again and some I can't wait to see where they will take me.

Talk about a year of trend watching!

I did my best to them to you and show you fun ways to use them. With as many as there were, I was still able come up with my top Five Faves.

1. As if it was told we would no longer see the Chevron Pattern, it was being used  just about everywhere. I did however enjoy the fun zig zag lines and all the ways it was used.

2.It was big, jewelled and pure over the top goodness. With all the latest trends, an old period in time made a big come back- yes- we fell in love with Baroque once again. Easily seen on all the fashion runways and magazine covers, the Baroque style was a hit that made little misses in its presentation.

3. Along with the baroque trend was a fresh look at Black and Gold. The look was much sleeker and far more edgy than looks of the pair in the pass.

4.Creative souls have been using and reusing the Mason Jar to create small and memorable works of art. This year I saw the Mason Jar used over and over again and each time I looked forward to the next.

Light it up!

5. The perfect pop of colour this fall had to be Oxblood. With mostly black and grey playing up as most favoured, it was great to have such a strong colour to work with.

The Warmth of Winter White

In just about any season, I love the look of crisp white and the creamy filled spaces. No matter the style or era the look of white interiors there's always seems to be such newness in the the feel. Being so flat at times I think it's important to add lots of texture and pattern when creating your white room . The overall vibe will then become rich and full of volume as opposed to being a flat surface.

Candy Coded Christmas

This year even more so than ever ,colour gets a big welcome into homes for the holidays, and why not, it is a fun time of year after all. I just think its important not to get carried away and end up with something that you just can't wait to take down. It may best to stick to a few colours and work them into some interesting settings. Think playful, whimsy, and bright!

Candy the colours of sweet joy

Put it on an inspiration board- save time and money.

Christmas Bright

I always find once you've got a moodboard of your thoughts together, it is so much easier to put your
decor into view. Its also a great way to quickly see if your vision will work for you.

Now- I just love the Yves Rocher add!  It truly embodies all that is blissful about working with
bright colours and begin playful.

 Love their products as well, check the line here:

Some of ways to try your colour coding

Dining in Colour- The dining table and area maybe the only place you choose to work in your colours. This of course allows for endless possibilities as you can create the look to be your focal point in the home.

That's a Wrap!

It seems as though we have been waiting for snow only to left out in the cold December rain.  It is however, not business as usual, at lease so far. How do I feel about all this... well-I do enjoy the warmer days, but can't help to think just what maybe really going on in our environment to cause such drastic weather changes. So while the weather changes Christmas remains and is almost here again. Now there are many things I look forward to during the prepping for the holiday. One, being Yes- I love gift wrapping : )  I find it so relaxing and creative is always out to play here.

Gift giving also holds so many special aspects to it, from the gift itself to the presentation of the gift it, really is expression at work.

Fun, Useful

So whether you pull out your crafting kit and go all out or  just keep it simple,  its all about presentation. Make the gift giving moment a little more special with a package worthy of much smiles.
