9 Tips on How to Decorate Brightly Colored Walls Successfully

There’s an entire psychology behind colors and how they influence your mood. And let’s be honest, not all rooms were made for white walls. So, here are 9 tips on what to do before (or after) you’ve decided on a color that best represents you.

1. Begin with a focal point.

Typically you choose the focal point and then build a color story around the central piece in your space. Deciding on the focal point second is a risk but do it anyway! Then it’s off to hunt for the perfect piece of furniture to get an idea of which direction you want to go in next. Find an item that incorporates your paint color brilliantly—a rug, a chair, duvet or piece of art.

7 Decorative Tips for Bringing in the New Year At Home

PicMonkey Collage

It’s nearing the close of another holiday season and that means one of two things, quite possibly both: You’ve had guests over for big, extravagant meals and/or you’ve spent the last month attending all those holiday parties, taking full advantage of the break from work. And now, you’re out for the count and not really up for bringing in the New Year on your feet at another never-ending party.

Let’s face it: Getting dressed and going out is not the safest plan on a night like this one. Some of us opt to spend the night in intimate settings, counting down the seconds before the clock strikes 12. So, here’s a list of small but significant decorative tips for closing out 2015 in an epic but subtle way below.

LBS Chic at Home: Aphrochic Design Tips with Home Depot


Last weekend I had the awesome opportunity to attend an exclusive preview of the Home Depot Closet Chic space at the Essence Block Party. The opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time because in just 2 weeks I’m moving out of my current home and into a new space! Hence, I’m looking for all the home decor inspiration I can get.

Home Depot teamed up with the designers behind the popular and on-trend home decor destination AphroChic to design the ultimate cool-girl’s closet smack dab in the middle of the Essence Block Party. It was decked head to toe in literally all things I love. The closet was painted a special custom color created by Aphrochic at Home Depot via the Colorhouse brand of paint (only available at the Home Depot in Brooklyn!) This color is so me – the perfect merge of pink and purple. It’s like a fashionista’s fuschia. Also Colorhouse paint has absolutely no odor or fumes (which is pretty awesome).


Founders Jeanine Mays and her husband Bryan Mase briefed me on the inspiration behind the closet and the idea was “The Perfect Girl Cave”. From the great pops of color to the explosive prints (the dresses hanging in the closet are from one of my favorite designers Reuben Reuel of DEMESTIKS NYC), I loved everything about the space.
