This month’s design collaboration was tricky for me. I haven’t paired these colors together before….but I like what I ended up with. I decided to create a foyer space. I grounded the space with a charcoal wallpaper and lightened it up from there… is a bit feminine…but also a bit modern which would work for everyone:) Here is what everyone came up with based on this color scheme….

“This month’s colors had me a bit puzzled….only because I haven’t paired these colors together before. But I love the freshness and light that transformed this foyer space when I put in splashes of pink and coral against the dramatic charcoal background. It all has me wishing for spring and warm sunshine!” –Tracie at CleverlyInspired





I purposely picked a color combo for this month’s inspiration photo that I wouldn’t normally choose, because I’ve had a hankering for using black and white in a design board. I put together a comfy family room, with space for kids’ toys and a plush sofa for parents to lounge on too. See my post for all the sources.





I’ve been dreaming of spring, but loving the dreamy, coziness of winter. With this in mind, I wanted to create a space where I could retreat to read. The pop of color reminds me of a budding tree; color amongst bare branches.
