Keep in mind not every color needs to be applied to the walls. Look for decor and accessory pieces in your favorite mouth watering shade. Pillows, areas rugs, curtains and lamps are great ways to pull color into the space. Even better these items can be easily changed out with the season or when you are are ready to move on to something new.

Ice cream colors are so popular because they are so transcendent. These colors make us smile and help us to remember the easy, breezy summer days of our past. Think about adding layers to your space as if you are adding toppings to your culinary creation. The cherry on top… there’s no rules! That’s right! You can create the biggest, boldest sundae, go global with a cup of  European inspired gelato, or kick back with a bowl of fruity pastel hued sherbet. It all works and its all delicious!

If you feel good about your space, if it makes you happy then it will be successful! No one eats ice cream and feels stressed, we eat ice cream because we are stressed! Our spaces are reflections of us. So, why not make your space reflect something that you love. So we say, eat the sundae, get inspired and worry about the calories later! And about that stress…just remember, stressed spelled backwards is desserts!

Until Next Time!
