If we were playing a word association game about patterns, “picnic” would be the first thing I’d pair with “red gingham.” (Closely followed by “vintage apron.”) There’s something incredibly homey about the pattern, which this sweet found object collage by Mandy Lynne Design captures so well.

I’d never considered taking the pattern from picnic table to focal point until I saw this amazing living room. It takes the gingham wallpaper often associated with, say, ’80s country decor and ornamental chickens squarely into this century by pairing it with eclectic accents like the hand-carved mantel and original artwork. The incredible floral rug makes the perfect visual counterpoint.

Carrot cake is one of my favorite spring desserts — it’s comforting, homey and just a little bit spicy. (Also, there is cream cheese frosting.)  This Moroccan-inspired bathroom’s palette is like the design equivalent of the beloved cake: It not only matches the warm, neutral tones, but the worldly accent pieces, modern geometric tile and striped curtains add just enough spice to this mostly-neutral space.

Sure, I may have trudged to work in my winter coat today, but I’m already looking forward to bright spring fashions. I love how a few on-trend pieces (like emerald flats paired with coral jeans) can revitalize wardrobe basics, and it’s the same in this sweet little girl’s room.

Neutral walls come to life with a fun gallery wall full of bright emerald touches. I especially love the embroidery hoops filled with springy fabrics. But the real star of this space? The ever-popular ombre dresser in shades of coral. Yes, it’s perfect for a nursery or kids’ room, but I’d gladly find a spot for it in my bedroom, too.

Seeing groups of yellow and purple flowers always cheers me up in late winter; the blooms are like spring’s first official order of business. Inside the house, this combo of color wheel opposites is less common since it can be tricky to balance the two bold hues.

To get it right, take a cue from some of spring’s first blossoms. The colors of daffodils and crocuses look fabulous against the backdrop of the neutral, still-thawing ground. It’s the same in your living room: accents of deep purple and mustard yellow add color and vibrancy to a warm gray base hue (without making the room into a Lakers shrine.)

Last weekend I took a mini-vacation to Miami, Florida. As a first-time visitor, I was in awe of how beautiful the city is — the art deco buildings, the vibrant public art, even the designer parking garages (seriously!.)

Modern Beach-Inspired Color Palette - Tuesday Huesday on HGTV's Design Happens

Thumbing through my brightly-hued photos from the weekend, I kept coming back to this color combination I spotted on one of the beach’s lifeguard shacks. I love how the watery blues, tans and turquoises so common in coastal design are made modern with a hue across the color wheel: bright orange. This color combination looks especially striking against white walls, like in this cheerful dining space from Style at Home.

Welcome to our newest D-Happ series, Tuesday Huesday. Each week, we’ll share a new color combination inspired by a photo we love, whether it’s an amazing designer space, the label on a vintage jar or a confetti-inspired party backdrop.

Since we’re a mere two days away from Valentine’s Day, today’s bedroom color palette is all about hot pink. It’s a classic color, but it feels modern when paired with warm gray, dusty pink and bright turquoise. The white, black and navy accents keep it from being 100-percent girly. (It’s a mere 90-percent girly.)

Even though honeysuckle is Pantone’s color of the year for 2011, have you noticed how green is popping up in home decor? When I was at Maison & Objet earlier this year, I saw green everywhere. It’s always been a difficult color for me to decorate with; there are so many varying shades that I get lost when it comes to a green color palette. But these rooms by some of my favorite designers show how stunning a green room can be.
