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.

Cool + Collected is our regular Friday post covering modern lifestyle topics from around the globe. You'll find everything from design icon biographies to modern art, photography and architectural surprises. And of course modern design.
+We're crushing hard on Australia this week. Could be our yearning for southern latitude sun. Or it could be that the Aussies are just doing design right these days. Whatever it is, we'd love to summer at the 33M towers in Melbourne.
+Est magazine is an Australian webzine that's serving up some stunning homes this month under the pretext of "the art of living simply."
+If you're in L.A. on Sunday, February 10th, meet us at a Frank Israel designed home for an artist-curated listening party to benefit the Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound.
+For the modern family, we can't get enough of the Qubis Haus, a coffee table turned doll house that all the young Neutra's in your life will go nuts for.
+And lastly, we're having a great time this week on our own redesigned Euro Style Lighting website. Shameless plug, yes, but with updated navigation and more robust search features, it's all the more fun to ogle all things modern.

I always love seeing how current trends and tastes permeate all levels of living -- from the clothes we wear, to the linens we accessorize with. And yes, even lighting!
As I was perusing ESL's fantastic stock of stylish chandeliers, I couldn't help but be reminded of current jewelry trends I've spotted. I'm especially partial to the drama of the first pairing. What about you?
Winter days short on sunlight are always made better with bright color and playful patterns! Ms. Preppy & Patterned knows that patterns don't have to necessarily be a print, they can also be a texture.
This Hammered Silverleaf Table Lamp with cylinder shade is a perfect example with its bumpy base, while the tall and narrow shade offers a dose of prep. Know where that lamp would look fantastic? Perched atop the Howard Elliott Unique Mirrored Cabinet. It's size is just right to use as a bar cabinet or entryway cabinet, and the etched mirrored surface offers lots of light and shadow play!
Ms. P&P's bedroom is an area of the three Rs – rest, relaxation, and reading! The bronze Besa Wall Lamp with Kona sunset glass offers up a punchy pop of color for those late night books that just can't be put down and those chilly morning wakeup calls that need a little help.
This black leather storage ottoman slides nicely into a living room corner when not being used and can be used for extra storage and seating in a pinch. The geometric nailhead pattern detailing makes sure this functional piece gets noticed on even the darkest winter days!
It would be a shame to neglect the smallest room in the house, Ms. Preppy & Patterned would never. A Modern Lilypad Light Fixture from Possini makes quite the bold statement and could easily be mistaken for a clear winter night's sky if you squint just a little.
