For most of us, the winter months drag on with not much sunlight and we easily over consume every carbohydrate we see to help with hibernation. Growing up in Michigan, I know a thing or two about a lack of vitamin D and serious craving for summer days during these dreary days.  Today’s post if for all of you summer craving individuals that need a fresh new look for the upcoming warm weather.  How incredible are these handwoven hammocks and hanging seats made from a family of artisans in Masaya, Nicaragua?  I was searching the web for my company BASH Event Design and came across Veronica Colindres.  She is a california native but moved to her parents homeland where her family has traditionally gained its income from creating beautiful Hammocks. Both her parents, siblings and herself are involved in the process, carefully putting together each hammock by hand.

Inspiration: Statement Bathroom

diva on a dime interiors statement bathroom marissa iacovoni I am all about a good STATEMENT bathroom when it comes to residentail interior design.  In most cases homes have one main floor bathroom for their guests.  Great ways to bring a statement is through interesting mirrors, wallcovering, and paint colors that really bring a small room to life.  In most cases you will want the towels, and bathroom accessories to be sleek and clean in order to balance the space and not compete with other textures and shapes within statement pieces.  I always try to concentrate on key design rules : emphasis( statement piece), color, texture (shower curtain), balance, and ambiance.  As a designer there is always reasoning to how or why I pair certain items together to create a well designed space.  To get the look or for more information on product email me divaonadimeinteriors@gmail.com

Going Pantone for EASTER

As a designer I am always having to match pantone colors to fabrics, carpet, drapery in order to match all colors to the same exact hue.  The Pantone Color Matching System is largely a standardized color reproduction system. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another.  I found these creative eggs on Pinterest today and absolutely LOVED them.   This is a great example of the modernized egg.
