Happy Passover!

Wishing you a healthy and sweet Passover! May you enjoy with family and friends the story telling of the Hagaddah.

May your home be cleaned as thoroughly at least once a month and not once a year for passover. May you take the time to be in the now with your loved ones as the future begins today. Hag Sameaj!

Blue & White for the bedroom

Some might find the color blue a cold choice for a bedroom. Yet blue in its many shades evokes nightfall, sky and water. More commonly used for boys bedrooms, in the master it has a grand effect. It is like being on vacation every night. When paired with white the contrast offers a calming effect. The same goes for the use of patterns versus solid tones, the combination keeps the eye interested on the patterned fabrics while offering a soothing rest with the solid hues. The choice of accent pieces from art murals to accessories add the finishing touches and further emphasize the desired effect. As winter draws to an end more choices in blue flood the markets for home decor.
