JUST ADD WATER 

These are the kind of finds that give me an instant smile. Maybe it's their cheerful colors or simply because they bring back happy memories of Summer. Either way, this fabulous version of the classic garden hose will add a touch of coolness to your outdoors. The Dramm Hose from West Elm is made of rubber and nickel-plated brass and resists kinking and coils easily, even in cold weather. The yellow one is my favorite... which one is yours?

THE RUB OF THE GREEN

Is your home styled to a T to welcome the New Year? It might be time to rejuvenate your decor with a lively, radiant, lush Emerald green–chosen by Pantone as Color of the Year for 2013. Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and rich. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life. The jewel-like tone will create a luxurious feel in any room. Just add a splash of it with accessories or small pieces of furniture to infuse a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation to your home. Here are some stylish, on-trend accents that will help you create your own Emerald City. Watch out Oz!

A BACHELOR PAD LIKE NO OTHER

This is not your typical bachelor pad. To the contrary. This Berlin rather spacious pied-à-terre is home to landscape architect Guido Hager when he's visiting the German capital from his home base in Zurich. The apartment is at the fourth floor of an historic building with alluring vistas of the city's charming local streets. Although the apartment was in need of complete renovation, Guido was ultimately captivated by the amount of wall space where he could display his brightly-colored art collection. I'm glad he kept the ornate details of the lofty ceilings as it adds a beautiful contrast to his minimalist and modern decor.

THE ISMS OF ART

One can never have enough artwork in their home, especially when its as cool and affordable as these super graphic fine art prints by Genis Carreras. Hanging a set of four or six of them on a crisp white will create a dramatic statement. Don't you think? If you like these, you'll love the rest of Genis' collection. Take a look here. I've already but the Relativism print on my wish list.

A BRIGHT DELIGHT

I'm looking forward to the weekend, so I'm very happy Friday is finally here (can't you see the big grin on my face?). Like weekends, color also has the same effect on most people—it certainly does for me. Here's a wonderful weekend treat from our friends Down Under at The Design Files who featured this creative and colorful one-bedroom loft of arhitect Rodney Eggleston from March Studio. The open-layout apartment uses simple materials like plywood, pegboard and concrete to create an effortless design style. Color was also key in making this home a fun and bright delight. Happy weekend!

LIKE MUSIC TO YOUR EARS

Have you ever wondered what the pad of a DJ  looks like? Well, you're in luck as today I'll take you inside the funky Madrid loft of Turkish DJ Jay Cumhur. With a style between high-tech and flea market chic, this eclectic space is where he lives and works. The loft is an amazing fusion of art, music, design and recycled pieces—like the two flight cases he used as coffee tables mixed in perfect balance with a collection of mid-century classics to die for. Every room in his fun-filled apartment is full of quirky details and wonderful artwork, all with very special meaning to its owner. Everywhere you look, the loft radiates his love for music and his passion for art. It is obvious tracks are not all he knows how to mix—mixing colors, patterns and styles is also something he does pretty well.

RESPONSIBLE PAINTS

Believe it or not these beautiful color chips are made of recycled paint. Yes, you heard right. British interiors brand Mini Moderns, in collaboration with award-winning Newlife Paints, has created a 12-color collection of environmentally responsible paints. If you're wondering how they managed to do it, here's the scoop. They recover paint that has been thrown away in landfills and convert it into a premium grade matt emulsion with lovely coverage and a chalky finish. How clever is that? Plus the soothing color palette they chose to create is rather lovely.

GO PURPLE

I believe everyone is entitled to respect and understanding by others. By all means, nobody should be harassed or intimidated for being themselves and showing their true colors. October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, and today, in observation of Spirit Day, millions of Americans are GOING PURPLE to take a stand against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth who are often bullied to no ends. So with this in mind, and to show my support for this great cause, I decided to share with you beautiful spaces with purple decor—a way of showing my support for this great movement agains such sad epidemic. You can also join in by wearing something purple today.
