Trend Spotting | Pops of Color

Thursday, January 12, 2012


With Lunar New Year looming just around the bend, I always make it a point to rearrange the corners of my home (and subsequently my mind) to mix things up a bit. It's totally a superstitious Asian thing (one I buy into every January it seems) to clean up the mess left behind by another bad year gone by. Yes 2011, I'm talkin' to YOU...


Naturally this calculated maneuver helps the incoming energy to circulate and settle with no problemo *here's hoping*. Stripping down to a minimal (albeit far from bare) black and white color scheme invites your imagination to conjure up what could be, instead of what you already know doesn't work. 

images 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Right now I'm feeling pops of color everywhere.
And yes, tangerine may just make it into the mix.

  1. All of these ideas are great, though I'm especially impressed with all the symmetry in the pic with the round mirror.

  2. "Colorful" was my mantra for my current home. I'm moving in a few weeks and "Pops of Color" is definitely what I'm going for at my next place. Beautiful pictures ! Inspiring :)

  11. i always feel better when i tidy and switch up my place. my living room and kitchen are one big space based on the principle of subtle neutrals (gray hues) and a few pops of color: aqua, chartreuse, seafoam. never been happier with a room i've lived in :)
