Black and White are two colors that always create beautiful contrast. The white desk against the black wall along with the chair’s contrasting upholstery adds interest to the vignette.

This blue and white dining room is full of contrasting shapes. The square bench and chairs contrast with the circular details in the backs of the chairs.

It seems most people collect something which still makes many of us hunters and gatherers.  We collect for different reasons- we may be recreating childhood memories, because it is fun and relaxing, because one day it may be worth something, it creates a sense of achievement in finding the treasures.  We use our collections in many ways but the main use is usually a way to accessorize our home.  Our collections are a way to inject some personality!

O K A Y!!
 
Now that spring is F I N A L L Y here on the outside, let’s bring some spring time inside with some
