Happy Spring!

I think we are all eagerly waiting for green grass,  yellow daffodils and the pinks and whites of blossoming trees.  I know that I am.  Yesterday I was waiting to check out at the grocery store, glancing at the various home design magazines when I was struck by a reoccurring theme.  It seems I am not the only one tired of the grey days we have put up with for the past several months.  What was this hot topic?  COLOR!  Elle Magazine inspires with “living in color,” House Beautiful discusses “inspiring colors,” Better Homes and Gardens touts “color made easy,” Veranda tells you about the “fresh colors for spring,”  and Domino and Traditional Home magazines both claim to have “the color issue.”  Do we see this on newsstands  every spring?

Pantone named Radiant Orchid as the color for spring 2014.  While painting walls with orchid seems like a big commitment it looks great when paired with chocolate-brown, navy blue or mossy green.  Here are some tips from the blog decor8.

I wanted to share this cool contemporary condo that is newly listed in Evanston.  This space is within walking distance to the beach, shopping, restaurants and public transportation plus it  has a great layout and a porch for a bit of outdoor space.   I love it!
