1. Painted Ceilings - Open up your space with painted ceilings. Don't you want to see something up there other than white space? I do. I know this is uncharted territory for some but the possibilities are endless.
Painting the ceiling a soft turquoise adds an ethereal fell to the space. Put your hand over the painted ceiling and observe how the room feels. Color changes everything.
2. Lighting - Shades of Light lighting store and web site has some of the most unique lighting fixtures anywhere. These are two of my favorite. If you're in Virginia Beach or Richmond stop by one of their stores.
I absolutely love the simplicity of design in the Retro Flowers Drum pendant. It's a must have in a mid century modern interior. It also comes in a blue/green combination.
"Everybody is a star." That's what the song says? So why not add this hottest of light fixtures flush to your ceiling?
3.The Color Honeysuckle - Call it hot pink or call it honeysuckle but the Pantone color for 2011 is hot! It pops any room. Layer it with softer shades to create a monochromatic look or contrast it with chocolate or black. This color makes me happy.
