The bold color palette of Saguaro Palm Springs is the work of renowned architects Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat, of New York-based Stamberg Aferiat Architecture. The property has been infused with hues that reflect the indigenous flowers of the Southwestern desert.

This photo is pretty Pin-worthy, don’t you think?

February is one of those months that can’t seem to make up its mind weather-wise. Snow flurries fell in East Tennessee this weekend, all while my yard’s first daffodils bloomed away. Robin’s egg blue (our pick for February’s color of the month) is perfect for this unpredictable period: it’s cool enough for winter, yet it brings to mind all that’s to come when the ground thaws: think Easter egg hunts and spring celebrations.

Adding gold and neutrals to the mix, like designer Katie Ridder did in the dining room on the left, creates a traditional palette with just a hint of luxury.

Happy New Year! All of us at HGTV are home ringing in the new year in our pajamas, but we didn’t forget to vote on our first Color of the Month of 2013 before the offices closed. And what color had us ready to embrace the coming year? It’s warm, it’s shiny, it glows…it’s GOLD!

Gold Color of the Month January

Color Team member Jill pitched Gold in December, but it didn’t make the cut for 2012. But then Kayla put her spin on it and suddenly we all had the Midas Touch. After the festivities of New Years Eve, the richness of gold just feels right.

So what say you? Are you feeling the warm glow of gold to kick off the new year? How would you decorate with this always-in-style metallic?

Here at HGTV.com, we’re already fans of saturated, moody emerald green — we even chose it as our September Color of the Month! So we were thrilled when we heard that color authority Pantone crowned the color its 2013 Color of the Year.

This sophisticated shade has slowly worked its way into fashion and home, from red carpet looks to vibrant home accents. Pantone considered the color’s emotional appeal, too: “Symbolically, emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world,” remarked Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, in today’s press release.

One of the hue’s best qualities is its ability to be both luxurious and casual, both modern and classic. Designer Andrea Schumacher gave the classic white kitchen a twist by painting this home’s island an unexpected emerald green and pairing the hue with blue floral wallpaper and Murano glass chandeliers.

Making plans to put up your Christmas tree? Try something new this year! Brian Patrick Flynn suggests a color combination of violet, brown, bronze and white as a great way to add masculine appeal to your home. For proper balance, stick with brown and bronze as the dominant colors, with sprinkles of violet for accent, and set it all against a white tree.

This month, Google lifted the veil off its massive and beautiful data centers. These facilities are typically shrouded in secrecy because they are the brains behind tech companies.

The company has been working on building its data centers for over 10 years. Google’s centers take advantage of renewable energy and are environmentally friendly.

So, what did you think of our little video last month? We loved giving you a sneak peek of what it’s like to work here at HGTV.com. In fact, we had so much fun shooting this video that we decided to do it all over again for October.

I don’t mean to brag, but I have an amazing dress sock collection. Ah-may-zing! I get the biggest rush when I am able to match wild and fun socks with whatever I’m wearing to the office that day. My motto is: “All business upstairs, but a party downstairs!”

For my recent birthday, I received some spectacular socks (thanks, Mom). Just look!

Fun Socks

Jealous of my collection? Don’t be! You too can have some fun socks! My go-to sock spots are: The Joy of Socks, Sock it to Me, Absolute Socks and Bold Socks.

And if you’re curious — yes,  I every now and then must go boring and wear ho-hum blue, black or brown socks. I was in a wedding recently and wore the standard black — I feared my socks may take attention off the bride.

What say you? Guys, are you bold enough to throw some flair on your feet? Ladies, think the man in your life would appreciate a pair of wild socks?
