7 Ways to Pull Green in a Space | Home Show Addition

The color green is thought to bring balance and youthfulness in interior design.  It’s depth of ‘hue’ is displayed from forest green-to-jade with thousands of shades to choose from – which explains why it’s often chosen as a ‘pop’ accent color.

Here’s a sampling of our use of this marvelous color from the 2015 IDEA & Inspiration House.

Faux Planters

AccentWall500The subtle addition of these planters gives this neutral accent wall a focal point.

CustomIsland500A touch of green, with varying textures, is all it takes for color to be added to this custom built island.

Tip:  The faux planters can be found at your local craft store.

Throw Pillows & Area Rugs

CouchPillows500Accent color can also come in twos. In this setting the sunny yellow and lime green adds fun and a casual feel to the space.

Color with Fruit & Napkins

KitchenTable500In this neutral palette, the fruit and napkins bring a bit of personality to this entire room.

Color with Fruit, Towels and Plants

BookShelf500The fruit, towels and faux planters allow the eye to move throughout the bookshelf.

Stone Coloring

Countertop500Consider bringing in a striking color through counter-tops.  Just enough color to not overdo, however, adds a tremendous amount of interest to the space.  Counter-top > Fantasy Soapstone

Fresh Look with Paint from the 2014 Home Show

Interior wall color can enhance the visual appearance and appeal of surroundings; giving an ordinary space a fresh extraordinary look.  Instant ‘mood’ change — for ex. turning an existing cold and uninviting space into warm, relaxing and invitational.  It’s been proven that paint does wonders to enhance an existing space, however, choosing the right color can be a difficult task.

In this year’s Building Home and Remodeling Show, we’ve chosen a color which speaks warm, yet cool neutral grey tones for an interior wall.  This neutral was a great back drop & companion for our porcelain brownish red tiles, teal accents and various brown splashes in this year’s booth.  Take note of the Interior wall color, Interior trim and Exterior trim.  Add these neutrals to your color file; it’s among this year’s Spring color trends.

2014 Building Home & Remodeling Show – Booth Remodel Insider

Getting ready for the 2014  Building Home and Remodeling Show!  Our booth remodel, from last year’s structure to this year’s show piece, is in the works!  Show dates have posted — March 7-9th; we hope you’ll make plans to attend!

Last year’s booth project was a major undertaking!  Three weeks of preparation and 40 hours to assemble with a crew of 10…Monday – Thursday.  The vision, hard work and dedication of Bill Denyers, along with his team, was a huge success and greatly appreciated!

We’re frequently reminded of how incredibly blessed we are to have such talented employees!

Plans are developing to transform our former TRANSITIONAL booth design, with it’s mix of traditional and contemporary elements, into a contemporary loft space.  A glimpse of last year’s layout…

Here’s our schematic for this year’s home show.  Notice how it mimics last year’s floor plan; however, with noticeable differences to come!  It’s our in-house discussion piece for design collaboration — here’s what’s on the design table, but not in stone:  1. raised roof for an urban loft renewal look; 2.  open booth structure — removing supporting beam; 3. Contemporary design; 4. Urban/ rustic/ loft and 5. re-purposed brick!!  Lot’s to come; we’ll keep you posted, right here, on our blog spot with our progress.

Last year’s TRANSITIONAL space to a CONTEMPORARY Loft.  With these plans, our goal is to show homeowners the removal of exterior walls is not essential to have the look you love.  While using your existing structure, same amount of space, consider moving interior walls to form the dream home/room you desire.
