Along with summer comes vibrant COLOR & PATTERN! All the reason to jazz up your wardrobe with chunky coral, white, & gold bangles.  And, the perfect time to carry a graphic multi-color chevron tote.  We are loving these trends at the marketplace - they are wonderful ideas for
summer fashion!

With the sun beaming bright - try bringing the outdoors inside!  Have you thought of incorporating succulents into your home decor? Succulents are an easy-care & long lasting centerpiece. Plus they bring the freshness of NATURE inside your home.

FINISHING TOUCHES are always key to developing your own personal style. Whether you are hosting a party for friends or going out on the town... choose home accessories & jewelry that add a little twist to your look.  Large scale ikat pillows can add drama to a neutral sofa. And, a multi-strand magenta necklace is a lovely choice for spicing up your SUMMER maxi dress.

Enhance your walls with ARTWORK! Find special pieces in which you love the way the paint is layered onto the canvas. Let the art in your home be one of the elements that pulls your room together! Local artist, Pam Anderson, showcased her primary subject matter, birds, on a
pink, mint, & orange background in this original work.

You might have guessed that our signature color here at the marketplace is TURQUOISE!  And, we do love seeing it incorporated into vignettes at the store. Adding a touch of turquoise to your home decor is a great way to create a fresh summer look!

COLOR & INSPIRATION are always a wonderful place to start when considering room design.  Various shades of color can be incorporated to create flow through the interior of your home. If you are a fan of TURQUOISE (like us!) then consider bringing in unique accessories to accentuate the color of your choice!

We continue to be amazed by all the wallpaper designs we see at the marketplace. Check out this lovely turquoise, slate & ivory design that was recently showcased here a the store.  Also, consider a BOLD PATTERN to spice up your powder room, entry hall, mudroom, or even your closest walls!

Your home is a place where you can express your own personal style & taste.  There are no rules when it comes to what you LOVE! We have fallen head over heels for these turquoise blown glass lamps paired with traditional french drawer chests.
