As much as I love Industrial design, I sometimes find that many of the colors used are a tad dreary. I wouldn’t like my interior space to be completely saturated in dark shades. While woods, warm metals and natural tones give that beloved rugged and vintage look, it always nice to see a splash of color somewhere in the mix. This is why I absolutely adore The Vidal Console Table by Zuo Modern. It is vintage-inspired but modernized with colorful detailing on the drawers. The striped multi-colored pattern truly stands out against the distressed black frame. It is made from poplar and plywood making it sturdy and durable. It has a narrow design but with plenty of storage space including two drawers and a lower shelf. This is a stylish and functional piece perfect for hallways and foyers!
The elegant Jupiter Bistro Table by Zuo Modern has a simplistic yet artistic design. It looks like a drop of wet paint floating through mid-air with its interesting arched base. The base is made from plastic and the rounded top is made from clear, tempered glass. It can be used as a side table, end table or as a bistro table to share some snacks and drinks with friends. This is the type of piece that would add a touch of contemporary chic to your interior space.
On this rainy Friday afternoon, I would love to lay back and relax on this amazing chaise lounge chair. The Dream Chaise by Whiteline has a shape that would fit the contours of any sleepy body perfectly, plus it has a really interesting design. It almost looks like it is in the form of a person lounging with their arms folded behind their head. You could lay your weary head down upon its plush and removable cushion. It’s metal, arched legs provide a sturdy stance so there is no fear about tipping over while you’re snoozing. Upholstered in a smooth and supple leatherette, this would be the perfect furnishing to take a little cat nap and re-energize for the fun night ahead!

You can bring the graceful look and sweet smell of spring indoors by decorating your home with fresh and beautiful flowers. Flowers can set any kind of decorative tone throughout your home.
You can create your own floral arrangements using flowers from your garden or you can purchase floral creations weekly from your local florist. Tie the flowers with delicate ribbons and lace or place them in bubble bowls and glass vases.
Some flowers are stained using a floral dye that protects and preserves the flower while also fitting nicely into your rooms color scheme! If you do opt to go to a florist, make sure to ask if their flowers are imported directly from the grower.Flowers that come directly from the grower on a weekly basis usually last much longer. Lilies, tulips and daffodils are excellent flowers to celebrate spring but a bouquet of fragrant roses also makes excellent decorative accents.
Either way you go about it, you can add a delicate element of natural beauty with a feminine touch to your interior design.
