I really believe that this is a year to be bold and beautiful and let your true colors show. After all, why should we shy away from color and limit ourselves?

The longer I work in this area the more I tend to open my mind and respect my clients’ tastes, and this is exactly what one of the most talented interior designers in America, Andrew Howard from Andrew Howard Interior Design, did.

The homeowners, a couple with two small children, were moving from Manhattan to Florida and they knew they needed to create a welcoming beach house that felt kid-friendly and sophisticated at the same time. The wife, Amy, thought of creating a Hamptons-inspired home at first, but together with Andrew, they decided to take some risks and have some fun with the homeowner’s favorite color scheme – blue and white.

The designer explains that you really can’t go wrong with blue and white and that’s why he wasn’t afraid to use the colors in different patterns, shapes and sizes in almost every space of this home.

Once featured on the pages of House Beautiful magazine, this home is sure to bring fresh ideas and a punch of high energy to your day. Free yourself and get inspired!

 Isn’t this home refreshing? I love the energy of this place! Talking about energy, how are you today? How are you feeling? I am feeling great after taking a week off and just relaxing around my house. Isn’t great to have nothing to do? Well, nothing with a real schedule I should say… you always have something to do when you’re a parent, right? 🙂

I hope your day is filled with color and life… just like this home is!

Be good, be happy and healthy! We’ll chat again tomorrow.
