I will admit it.

So, let’s get to it while I am sitting here with my heater on – seriously.

Our January Velvet Finishes Colour of the Month is


Restrained, low-key. This beautiful shade of beige has just a hint of a green undertone.

Below is mine and the BHE’s master bedroom – I love the Understated vibe of this room.

It’s one of my favorite rooms at Casa de Loco.

I find myself saying that a lot about all of the rooms at our house!

Do you love juju hats as much as I do? They bring an organic and natural element into any space. White, colorful and a DIY version are all here. Take a look!
