Pastel colors are a hot trend in fashion this year but why not make a place for them in your home? Traditionally associated with Easter, these desaturated colors will add a fun and feminine touch to your space. Whether used in a kitchen or bedroom pastels can pop up a clean white space while still keeping it sophisticated. Don’t be afraid to let the colors you love inform the space you live in.
Source your colors from the beautiful everyday objects you love and be inspired to add them in your next interior design project!

We are loving 2012′s biggest interior design trend, Bold Geometric Patterns. And who wouldn’t? It is a fun way to add pattern with a modern twist to any space in your home. Although this trend works great with bright saturated colors, paring the strong lines of the pattern with a delicate cool color scheme can create a softer look while maintaing the modern feel. Don’t be afraid to let color and pattern coexist in your home, enjoy!

Here at Florence and Millie we love the color mint. And who wouldn’t? Mint is a fun and clean color that is making its way through our hearts, our closets, and most importantly our homes. This soft, cool hue is a throw back to the days of our grandmothers but we are seeing it being used in a fresh contemporary way. The great thing about this color is that it works in any living space. So use it to light up a dark room, as an accent color, or put it on your walls to create a nice balance with your bold colored furniture.
Be bold, let this color fill your home, and always remember to create a space that reflects the beauties of your life.
