Known to represent kindness and remind us of those sweet flamingos, the color pink comes in many shades. Although I love them all, lately I’ve most drawn to the hue’s pale, pink side that is often featured in a baby girl’s nursery like the one by Caitlin Creer above. The fresh and cool shade of pink is also popping up in other areas of the home as a primary or accent color. Pale pink takes on a modern, sophistication when paired with a darker hues like black, navy and green.

Happy 2016! I hope you had a joyful, relaxing holiday. Although sick for a good week, I was able to enjoy a white Christmas in our new home. There is something so magical about quiet snow falling, a crackling fire and spending quality time with family. It was a wonderful way to end 2015.
With a look at the year ahead, I thought it would be fun to ask several interiors designers what decor trends they think will dominate in 2016. To kick off the series today is Northern California designer, Julie Rootes who is predicting we will continue to be mad for plaid. I agree and am loving the revival in the classic pattern.
Even though plaid is trending big time in the fashion world from shirts to shoes to everything in between, plaid is holding its own in the world of interiors. I find it can give the perfect kick to any space while still maintaining its traditional roots. From a small accessory like a pillow to decorating an entire room – a la Scot Meacham Wood (image above via Traditional Home) – it packs the perfect punch. – Julie Rootes
Whew! I’m quite relieved that the One Room Challenge (although a blast!) is behind us. The process and experience was really amazing, but exhausting. I’m so thankful to have worked with Linda from Calling it Home who created it all and with the generous event sponsors including, Bassett Mirror, Bellacor, DecoratorsBest, Farrow & Ball, Lowes, Mark & Graham, Minted, and oomph. Thanks so much!
A huge thank you to you, my readers. I’ve been overwhelmed by the supportive and loving comments, emails, and thumbs up you’ve sent my way. Many thanks!!!
Oh, did you have a chance to take a look at the other 19 designers and bloggers that participated in the challenge? If so, were you blown away by the talent and gorgeous designs too? Here are a few of my favorite ORC transformations…
I fell head-over-heals for Courtney’s design of her little boy’s bedroom. The traditional and rustic mix is fabulous. The reclaimed wood wall, handmade desk and pops of navy are just right. This room has lots of sentimental touches too which make the space all the more special.
Interior Designer, Naomi of Design Manifest pulled of a not so small feat for her One Room Challenge. It was really a One Condo Challenge! There are so many fabulous design details throughout, but my favorite is her small entryway which she covered in grasscloth, had a custom table made and hung a stunning mirror.
I’ve had my eye on the gorgeous silver palm tree pattern wallpaper for sometime, so I was thrilled to see Sue of The Zhush use it in her bathroom design. Her use of brass in the fixtures and hex mirror are spot on too. Love it!
Vanessa Francis of Decor Happy designed a wonderful master bedroom retreat. I am especially smitten with her walk-in closet design and how she backed the open shelving in a floral wallpaper. Stylish organization – you know I love it!
Nursery designs are personal favorites of mine and so naturally I adored the sweet lavender room for Megan’s baby-girl-to-be. Working with designer Sita Montgomery, Megan created a space layered in color, texture and pattern. The room actually started out a neutral nursery, but once baby girl was announced the room took on a more feminine feel.
Isn’t this bedroom design by Mallory of Style Your Senses so serene? It’s just about the same color palette I’ve used in my own bedroom! I’m loving the campaign dressers and chinoiserie mirrors flanking the cozy upholstered bed. Fabulous!
Cassie of Hi Sugarplum! transformed her living room into an inviting, colorful and sophisticated space. She collaborated with Kristin of the Hunted Interior for the overall design. I love the layers in this room the most. Checks, animal and abstract patterns work brilliantly together. And that built-in in navy high gloss is brilliant.
Another fabulous living room design for the One Room Challenge was by TV host, author and lifestyle expert, Kimberly Schlegal Whitman. Her English Countryside inspired living room for her family’s ranch is quite a treat! I’m particularly loving this corner with leather green chair, brass & glass bar and buffalo check drapery.

“I love you to the moon and back”. It’s a saying that’s used a lot in my house and so when I spot moons in home decor, it always makes me smile. I particularly have been drawn to the moon phase photographs at Restoration Hardware. They would look amazing in just about any space!
