Beguiling Begonias

Get inspired to Decorate with Original Orange Flower art
If the new year got you in the mood to finally decorate, here is an easy way to get a designer look. Start with a Moroccan quality area rug by Stark Carpet. The one shown in the room view, Moroccan Relief, will look chic modern and hide the sins of minor wear and tear.

Next, add instant sophistication with Benjamin Moore's Amherst Gray.  As interior designer Lytel Young says in House Beautiful magazine, "Gray is the new neutral...use it in a living room , where it would make the most uptight guest feel at ease, as if he'd loosened his tie."

Instead of adding the art last, find a piece of art that really speaks to you and use the colors of the artwork to add decorative pillows.
Enjoy the energy and beauty of Orange Begonias all year round
