I am a sucker for color. I love to incorporate it into my home as much as possible but adding too much color or pairing it in the wrong way can make the room seem adolescent.
I found these beautifully designed living rooms that have the perfect balance of vibrant color paired with a few neutral pieces to pull it all together. The colors coordinate well without being boring. I love it!
In this girl's room (below), a bold neon pink pops against the gray walls. A perfect use of color for a kids room, bright and bold without being overly childish or tacky.
One of my favorite parts of this space (above) is the choice of art. It's fun and colorful but not over the top. The colors from each piece just work so well together, don't they?

An entry hallway sets the tone for your home. It’s the first thing your guests see as they walk into your house. A Modern hallway may seem like ordinary pass-through that doesn't require a second thought, but with a little attention, these spaces can take on a personality of their own.
No doubt lighting can play a huge roll in modern hallway design. That’s why I’ve pulled together two different ways you can dress up your hallway with lighting – sconces and ceiling lights.
Too often we fall back on the ever-reliable table lamp or typical overhead pendant light — not that there is anything wrong with these options — but maybe it’s time to spruce up your entry with lighting that takes it up a notch! Go for that sconce, pendant or chandelier that you think makes a great statement.

Summer is here! We are firm believers that your home is just as important as your closet when it comes to appropriate styling for the seasons. It's easy to add Summer style to your home, indoors and out, with just a few small changes.
Add a fun pop of color to your outdoor furniture. Outdoor seating can be really fun with all the different selections nowadays.

There's no brighter way to add a little Summer style to your décor than with the color yellow! The kitchen is a perfect place to start with this fun hue.

One of the smallest changes you can make is with accessories. Decorative pillows are a perfect way to add color and patterns to any space. For the summer, try some pillows with reds and pinks, the color of sunset!

Nothing says Summer like the clean, crisp color white. It's fresh and welcoming. The best part is, it's year-round too. Whether you go big and paint the walls white or just switch out some chairs, you'll be able to enjoy it all the way through next Summer.

Just like your wardrobe, small changes can mean big rewards when it comes to home décor. Have fun this Summer and give your home a mini-makeover!
When in the doldrums of summer Ms. Cool & Pulled Together doesn't want to worry about mussy fabrics and fussy accessories. Nonononono. She wants cool, calm, and collected pieces that don't require a lot of muss and fuss but that give the illusion of being pristine.
When metal and glass meet they can feel cool in summer and warm in winter, especially when surrounding textiles are swapped out. Our Ms. loves this Floating Bubble Possini Euro Round Ceiling Fixture for just that reason, and it makes a bold statement without feeling weighed down.
The slim profile of this Modern Dark Bronze Tenda Pharmacy Sonneman Floor Lamp is both classic and contemporary with an adjustable height feature. A pretty piece for rainy summer afternoon or chilly winter nights.
Ms. Cool & Pulled Together prefers the clean lines of modern pieces, like this Candelaria Robert Abbey Modern Chandelier. It gives her dining table the perfect halo of light for dinner parties!
When it comes to making her space feel airier it's time to pull out some visual tricks. Number one on the list is a great mirror, like the Sunrays Antique Silver Metal Round Wall Mirror with its openwork sunray spokes and silver antique finish.
Ms. Cool & Pulled together loves the softness of the Satin Brass with Transparent Shade Sconce. The metal's finish paired with the shade make a light that's just right for the vanity.
The industrial feel of the Edison Bronze with Glass 3-Light Console Lamp takes the feminine edge off of any space, and definitely adds an element of interest.
