And now… for the rest of the story…

To conclude our wrap up of blogs from the past year, we’ve noted a few entries from the last part of 2010.

In July, we posted the  ‘after photos’ from the 2010 ASID Showcase Home  where we designed the Front Porch on the Lake of the Isles home. https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/07/06/showcase-home-porchafters/

In August, we highlighted three of the main color trends for fall: Magenta and Chocolate, Yellow, Grey and White, and eggplant. See the fresh combo of yellow, grey and white here: https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/08/03/color-trends-yellow-grey-and-white/

In September, we showcased three themes for table top decor ideas for hosting fall dinner parties. These themes can translate easily to parties throughout the year. https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/09/09/fall-dinner-parties/

In October, we posted a few pictures from a custom window installation. We used the same fabric on the cornice board and to upholster a wing chair in this lovely music room. https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/10/14/hauthaus-installation-day/

In November, we showed you how to make a feather wreath with Holly. Did you make one? If so, we’d love to see pictures! 🙂 https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/11/22/make-a-holiday-feather-wreath-with-holly/

In December, we showed you how to create a fabulous holiday table using things you might find in your kitchen cabinets and your front yard! https://hautblog.wordpress.com/2010/12/09/holiday-table-decor-with-hauthaus/

Wake up! The latest (and my favorite) color combo is Front and Center this season!

If you have been out and about lately, whether it’s in Crate and Barrel, Target, or to the showrooms at Interational Market Square, you have certainly noticed grey, white and yellow popping onto everything from tableware to dresses to the latest upholstery fabrics.

The past few months have certainly proven to us that neutrals, greys, and whites are everywhere. They provide a sense of stability and calm. The economy has a great infulence on color trends, and that has led us to where we are today with all of the grey.  But thankfully, yellow has stepped up and rustled the feathers of her neutral sisters! She is large and in charge. She is out to make you smile and put a little pep in your step! Is it working?

Have you noticed yourself gravitating a little farther away from the beiges and greys of yesterday and toward the fresh new idea of citron, lemon, sunshine… yellow?

The picture illustrates some of the fabulous new fabrics that are out and available to you as window treatments, pillows, or even on your sofa!

Be bold.

Be beautiful with the hot color combo: grey, white and yellow!
