Have you ever had that urge to get a tattoo, but didn’t want the permanence? Now you can fulfill those tattooing dreams without the permanence: tattooing your walls! New from Benjamin Moore, these tattoos are an easy way to make your walls stand out.
Another bonus: have the plant look, without needing a green thumb! If you know me, you know I am great at killing plants of any kind. With the Vineyard Wall Tattoo, I get the look, without it turning into dead plant zone!

We have come to our last of the four color trends of 2012 from Benjamin Moore: Spiced Life.
Choosing colors to paint the interior of your southwest Florida home can be the most challenging part of the whole project. Let’s take a look at Spiced Life color trend from Benjamin Moore and see what you like!
You will notice something unique about this particular project: they are working on a home office space! They really give you a lot of information in their color trends from before and after pictures, 2 different ways of painting with the same trend, and my FAVORITE: a video about using Chalk Paint as a “decorative element”.
If you’d like to look at the video on Chalk Paint, please click the picture below, click on videos, and scroll through the videos at the right to find Chalk Paint. You may want to browse the other videos as they have some great content, too!
So what do you think? How about that pink accent wall on the ceiling? I love the blue horizontal stripe on the one wall as another accent idea. What are your thoughts? Love it? Share it!
There are two ways to skin a cat…aka paint your bedroom! It’s sometimes hard for me to see what different colors would look like before I actually get the paint on the walls. That’s why I am so THRILLED to see what Benjamin Moore has done with their 2012 Color Trends of the Year! They show us two different versions of the same exact room using the same colors, but in different ways. Intrigued? Let’s look! The last two weeks we looked at Sense and Sensibility trend and Earth and Sky trend. Today, let’s explore their 3rd trend for 2012: Eclectic Elegance!
A different birds view:
Do you have a favorite so far? Version 1 or 2? Tell us! We’d love to hear from you!
As we all know from experience, a room can take a drastic change in feeling and tone with simply changing the colors. For example, think back to the last time you had a room painted in your home. Remember how fresh and new it felt? What feelings did the color before bring compared to the new coat of paint? Fresh and cool? Warm and cozy?
Last week we looked at one of four color schemes that make up 2012 color trends of the year: Sense and Sensibility by Benjamin Moore. This week we are looking at another of the 2012 color trends by Benjamin Moore: Earth and Sky. What feelings or tones come to mind when you see these colors together?
I really enjoy the way they have taken one room and transformed it in two different ways using all the same colors, but in different ways to show us how we can get two completely different feelings from the room by changing its colors. Check out these two transformations and vote for your favorite transformation (1 or 2) in the comments section below!
Now, think about your work space. What color would make you feel fired up for work or excited to work on that long project? Do you have an office at home? What colors might make you feel so relaxed, you could fall asleep? Those would not work for an office, but would be great for a bedroom or a guest bedroom.
Our environment does have an effect on us; let’s make it the most effective for what the space is intended for! Where would you like to use this 2012 Benjamin Moore Color Trend of the Year? We’d love to hear from you!
