Color your day with the contrast of black

Sophisticated, mysterious and oh so dramatic, the color black adds an energetic punch to all your decor. Its startling dominance evokes a sense of strength and authority. Just like going to a black tie party,  a space dressed in black decor exudes sophistication, classiness and a breath of sexy flair.

Color your day with a sunshine yellow

Yellow radiates optimism, happiness and hope. A buttery yellow flower in the meadow, a pretty yellowware bowl or a fun, bright colored chair in the kitchen evoke a sense of joy, a feeling of playful optimism and a smile of happiness within the observer. However, adding a yellow wall or a citrus hued fabric to a room may transform the space into a den of thinking, searching and even mental agitation. Yellow inspires original thought, clarity of perception and inspires to ponder, to problem solve and to use rational thought and logic. It wakes...
