Life In Color by Shanna Shryne

What's your favorite color? I can't decide this season!  I'm LOVING mixing all the colors this SPRING - the EMERALD greens from Palm Leafs, the HOT PINKS from Flamingos, the YELLOWS from Pineapples + Bananas...the brighter the better! 

 I love decorating with crisp bold statement colors. Whether it's a new wall color or as simple as fresh flowers or a colorful book or pillow, adding color to a room is an easy way to update any space. 

I've pulled together my favorite images that has inspired the direction of my showroom and a few ideas on how to add some vibrant splashes into your kitchen, living and outdoor spaces. 

I think a trip to Palm Springs is in order!  - S.

Pantone Color(s) of the Year by Shanna Shryne


Move over Marsala....for the first time in the history of color, Pantone has selected two colors.


A softer take on color, these two inspire peace, balance, and tranquility.  According to the brand, they also transcend cultural and gender blurs.

I love the combination of these two colors. The warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue demonstrate an inherent balance. These shades evoke a type of sunset that makes you stop in your tracks.

Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. It is a great color to mix with neutrals and a black and white color palette.

Serenity is weightless and airy, like a blue sky, bringing feelings of relaxation even in turbulent times. It is still a color that is growing on me and I have found the conceptual images below as ways to bring these two color palettes into your home and decor.

A House in Black by Shanna Shryne

As interior designers, we love to seek inspiration in all styles, trends, and classic historical aesthetics. Halloween is a great time of year to bring focus on a darker side of design...especially Gothic Style. 

This style dates back to the middle ages and throughout history has proven to be a strong influence in design. Originating in France, this style was built with a purpose and built to last. It spread in the United States and has outlasted the test of time still appearing in many modern day interiors. 

Gothic style is all about the grandeur and drama. It brings ornate lines and dark color schemes which are very popular this time of year. 

By incorporating gothic design touches into modern day spaces, you can bring a unique look without fully committing to this bold style. Dark, textured materials, arches and symmetrical architecture all are ways to execute the medieval aesthetic. 

In the spirit of Halloween, take a look at Shanna Shryne Designs’ favorite Halloween inspired furniture. 

Happy Halloween from Shanna Shryne Design!
