This week its all about the modern cottage. Do you love the look of modern but want to keep your space looking cozy? Here are some tips for just that!

1. As I always say, every great room starts with the perfect paint color! This week, Balboa Mist OC-27 by Benjamin Moore is the star. Its the perfect soft warm gray that is like the color of linen. Balboa Mist adds just the right amount of warmth to any room. 

2. Our accent color this week is Newburyport Blue HC-155 by Benjamin Moore. This is a deep blue without being dark navy. This color is great used as an accent. Try it on a door or a piece of furniture for a touch of WOW!

Once you have your room painted this gorgeous Balboa Mist, its time to decorate! Natural cottons and linens are perfect for this look, along with light natural wood furniture and rattan lighting. Finish it off with a few of our favorite accessories!
