Into the Wind Ivory by Albena Hristova
We work with art, so of course we love bright, bold colors.But we also love the simplistic elegance of neutrals and the endless design opportunities this palette presents in the home.

From subtle grays and creams to rich shades of brown and black, creating a neutral space doesn’t have to be dull.

Red Hot For the Home

Updated Silhouettes home decor trend
Since the 1800s, before the birth of photography, artists have been creating silhouette portraits. Classically composed as a black portrait on a white background, they were cheaper and faster to create than a traditional portrait so quickly gained popularity with the middle class. Today, silhouettes continue to charm us with their beautiful simplicity and elegance. […]
