In last Friday’s post, we introduced you to John Colaneri, who just wrapped up his second season of Cousins Undercover on HGTV along with his cousin Anthony Carrino. John and his wife recently purchased a piece of land in northern New Jersey where John has put his years of construction expertise to work on his first ground-up building project.

One thing I love about spring is the reemergence of color, especially outside my window. Bright yellow daffodils and lime green buds on the trees all signal the start of something new.

The experts all have an opinion on the hot new colors each year, so we’ve been poking around to see what trends are out there and how you can consider these when choosing your lighting.Read More
