People risked their lease deposits and spent loads of time prepping their places just to paint their apartments a more saturated hue. But then, something changed. White became the aesthetic of choice, and not just for the walls. Vibrant interiors took a back seat as monochromatic minimalism rose in popularity. And though there’s nothing wrong with that look, we must be honest — we’ve missed color. Everyone has their personal preference when it comes to their space’s

Out of all the regrets homeowners across America have, buying a house that’s lacking in space ranks the highest. This may seem surprising since, over the last few years, people all over the world have chosen to “embrace minimalism” by giving up most of their material possessions in order to move into a tiny house. It’s a phenomenon that’s inspired a myriad of HGTV shows. It’s a trend

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — Pinterest is the place to go for seasonal inspiration. Earlier this year, we highlighted their summer trend forecast, and now that fall is in full swing, it’s time to see what pinners are on the hunt for ahead of the cooler months. Read on for our take on this season’s top Pinterest decor trends! Halloween Decorating Ideas Pinterest anticipates that Halloween will be scary big this year. So they set up a virtual haunted house filled with frightfully good ideas for

Image via Architectural Digest Neutrals are a necessary part of any home’s color palette. Not only do they keep our spaces feeling grounded and cozy, but they add a level of elegance that bright, saturated hues just don’t.
