Spring Looks from Thibaut

As the world freshens up, thoughts turn to bringing the outdoors inside. With the world starting to bud, it’s time to put away the saturated hues of Winter and embrace the colors of Spring for an on-trend accent wall or room.

Jungle Adventure 0739 paint color

March Color of the Month

Green is the obvious choice for March, but not just any green. Jungle Adventure 0739 is a classic, organic green with a hint of yellow undertone. Think nature, foliage, a jewel tone, but not as blue as the Hunter Green of the 80’s.

Friday Finds: Metallic Wallcoverings Bring Out The Glamour

Gold. Silver. Bronze. Precious metals to add glamour and drama to any home through the popularity of metallic wallcoverings. “Metallics can create a depth and a dimension that I don’t think you can achieve any other way, besides with the real deal,” says Kathy Basil, Hirshfield’s Design Resource Showroom Manager. “We’ve been seeing metallics for a couple years,” she says, “but it’s not just the high-end anymore. It’s across the board.”
