My Take: Benjamin Moore 2017 Color of the Year “Shadow”

Benjamin Moore Shadow | Interiors for Families

I don’t often chime in on the various color trend conversations that pop up every year. Mostly because I find that they are often somewhat disconnected from the reality of my day-to-day work. I don’t really follow or use¬†trends as much as I try to be aware of them and watch how they evolve (and…

Interior Design Time Warp #1 – The 1970s

Materials Board from 1970s

While vacationing in Newport, RI last month, we rented a lovely house in the Kay-Catherine neighborhood. The homeowners had the most impressive collection of coffee table books I had ever seen. Name a topic, they had a great big book (or several) about it – art, architecture, sailing, lighthouses, geography, food, wine, etc. The ones…
