Color Trends of 2014 by Benjamin Moore

COLOR TRENDS OF 2014 BY BENJAMIN MOORE

I love using Benjamin Moore for my projects and here’s a great video by BM revealing the color trends of 2014. Enjoy!


Wood Wow Factor

WOOD WOW FACTOR

What’s NOT to Love?

The solid wood counter top is absolutely jaw dropping! It provides the Wow factor to a minimalist space by creating an ideal focal point. The natural color of wood, grains and texture along with live edge bring so much character to this clean lined kitchen. Sometimes just one great element is enough to bring a space to life.

 


Framed to perfection

FRAMED TO PERFECTION

I am simply loving this composition!
What the picture conveys is a breathtaking view of a color rich painting framed through gorgeously carved ornate doors; making both the journey and the destination interesting. Clever design of a clean space along with ornamental design features. The saturated hues appear all the more striking against neutral color surroundings.

For the Love of Red

Add Color to your Black & White Life….You only live once after all!

Amazing Artwork

UPCYCLED ART

What most of us consider trash, is the basic material with which Derek Gores creates his masterpieces. His Collage work consists of recycled magazines, labels and other scrap materials skillfully used on canvas…. Here are some of his works. For more visit his website.

Giving Frames A New Perspective

GIVING FRAMES A NEW PERSPECTIVE

When you have some old ugly frames, this is what you do. Prime and slap some color of your choice and give it a new life.

I just colored mine white and Red and Orange using left over paint from previous projects. You can buy oops paints from  Home Depot or Lowes and do the same. Sometimes paint won’t brush on smoothly on resin frames, just use primer first to give the paint a surface to hold onto. Or let the strokes show and sand it later, adds a bit of rustic character…

Gorgeous Succulents

MY GORGEOUS SUCCULENTS

My succulent pots are growing in nos. Nothing better than re purposing all the used food jars and tins to plant these babies. I tried using different  shapes & sizes of containers and they all look so pretty!
