Breezy Beach Style Any room with an ocean view seems like the perfect setting to try out cheerful beach style. Universally popular, always on trend and easy to achieve, beach style turns that kitchen with a fascinating view into an extension of the charming outdoors.

The latest fashion runway collections from designers in Europe and the U.S. were awash with stripes — from large, bold stripes to dainty pinstripes to everything in between.

Refreshing Presence of Green! Green and gray is a less common combination in the bathroom (or for that matter, in any room of the house), and it is hard to pull off unless you get the balance absolutely right. You might want to stay away from very dark shades of green when combining it with gray in the bathroom, as it can create a dull and at times garish atmosphere. Lighter tones of gray combine with lime green and olive green, with a matte finish working well in classic, Victorian and shabby chic style bathrooms, while contemporary bathrooms in gray benefit from simple pops of green.

Since design projects can often be pricey, you want to ensure your handiwork remains usable for the foreseeable future. One of the easiest ways to do that is to invest in quality design elements.
