I think its all about the color POP! I am loving subdued shades of grey, white, and other neutrals, with electric pops of color. I am definitely interested in yellow at the moment, and thinking of enhancing my current palette with some yellow! I always say, stick with a basic color story and add your pops of color with inexpensive accessories that add interest and personality to your space. I love this coffee table in hot pink mixed with this darker palette! It's just amazing. Now this is how you add personality to a room!
Home Depot, and we put it on our dining room table along with this fancy centerpiece from a garden shop in Middletown, Rhode Island called Chaves Gardens. It adds a touch of, "Greek-ness" to the apartment!
One thing that I like to do is to combine different types of end tables. For example, in our living room we have a white lacquer end table on one end of the couch, and a white metal and frosted glass end table on the other end. In the bedroom, we're using a small decorative box next to the bed, and we also have a small trunk in the living room. I think it is important to switch these around every once in a while, because it is a quick and easy way to update a room .
One of my absolute favorite gourmet food brands is Stonewall Kitchen. I am such a huge fan of all of their products, which are available in a lot of gourmet food stores. I usually get mine at Clement's Market in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, or the Gray Goose Cookery in Mystic, Connecticut (which is a cook's paradise!). The last time we went to Mystic, we picked up a bottle of the country ketchup (which retails for $6.50 but is DEFINITELY worth it!)
