5 Faves :: Pinterest Home Decor

Last week my computer died. It was frustrating at first, but I got a little break from blogging and work that I needed. In addition, I have a brand new computer!

Even though I wasn’t blogging, I still found time for one of my favorite sites: Pinterest. Here are a few of the most popular pins from the last week:

Indoor Plant Spotlight :: Orchids

With over 20,000 known species, the orchid is exotic, colorful and often fragrant. Orchids look fabulous anywhere including in an entryway, bathroom or on a coffee table. Here are a few great examples of interiors featuring orchids:

Orchid care can be tricky, but not as difficult as you may think. BHG has a great article on how to care for orchids in your home.

Shades of Gray Home Decor

From charcoal to slate, cadet to pewter, smoky to mousy. The many shades of gray is quite vast, sophisticated and yet neutralizing. A mixture of black and white, the trending color has been hitting the fashion runways, surfaces in our homes and the pages of a very popular book (need I say more). Over the past couple years more and more of my clients have wanted to paint central living areas in soft shades of gray, cover counters in gray marble or stain cabinetry in rich gray tones. It’s a trend I personally love and I don’t see slowing down anytime soon.

To give you an idea of the range of shades and uses gray can offer, I’ve rounded up several inspiring images.
