Hiring a traditional interior designer is a luxury that most people simply cannot afford.  In addition to being expensive, it is not particularly convenient. You will have to line up your schedules with the designer, find time to have him/her come to your house to examine it and sink hours into meeting before even seeing the first mood board. Luckily, like in most businesses, the Internet naturally found its way into the world of interior design and changed the whole game.
eDesign, a term normally used for online interior designing and consultations, has made this service available to a substantial number of people and we are going to show you how and why.

We’ve all browsed Pinterest in search for inspiration and new ideas for decorating our home and have seen countless living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms that look astonishing.

Muted Colors – In the Spotlight

February 14, 2017

Interior trends change fast, it’s hard to keep up! But every interior designer (or enthusiast) on the hunt for inspiration can spot the trend while in its roots. One of them that is having a major moment are muted colors. Last year was all about Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue, but it seems like 2017 is going to be even more stained in subdued shades!

What are muted colors? When you mute sound, you make it quieter. Same goes for the colors. When you mute the color, you reduce its vibrancy, it becomes faded, quieter and partially desaturated. Plain blue ends up being dusky or deep sea blue, green becomes earthly green or olive, yellow transforms into dusted yellow etc. If you want a more subtle color presence in the interior of your home, opting for muted colors is the way to go. They will give you the freedom to play around with other shades, add patterns and texture, making your decorating choices almost endless. Let’s take a glimpse at some of the muted hues’ hidden powers.
