Interior: Vibrant & exquisite dining room with cheerful pops of yellow

A few colors seem as refreshing and visually engaging as yellow when used in neutral contemporary spaces. Just bring a yellow chair to the dining room filled with white, black, gray or beige and you will instantly see the energy levels in the room shoot up. Be Inspired by this vibrant and exquisite dining room with light blue drapes, invigorating yellow chairs & a snazzy chevron pattern rug.

Interior Design: Three beautiful bathrooms with wood detail

While surfing today on internet I found these beautiful bathrooms with wood detail. Wood panels, vanities, cabinets and tubs - you may not think of a bathroom as a place to integrate wood into a design, but these spaces will show you how fabulous it can look. Not only does it warm up the room, but it pairs beautifully with sleek bathroom materials such as tiles, glass and porcelains. Be Inspired .......
