Our home & style director Ann Marie Favot shares how you can create a tidy and trend-forward home that embraces colour.
Q: I keep hearing about millennial pink. Should I incorporate it into my decor?
Don't let the name throw you. Though it's taken on the moniker "millennial" (after the 20- and 30-somethings who have flocked to it), this pale pink transcends age. Use the new neutral as you would beige or grey to imbue a current vibe. Not ready to commit to rosy walls? Try this colour-blocked knit throw; depending on how you fold it, you can show off its trendy rose tone or its more subdued flax hue.
Ellos throw, $100, eq3.com.
Q: How can I update my dining room without totally redecorating?
A new chandelier will reign in this realm of the home. Swap out your existing fixture and watch the space transform. This one boasts a streamlined silhouette that brings to mind a Scandinavian abode, yet its pearlescent details lend a luxe element.

Q: Any suggestions for a stylish storage solution that can go from room to room?
Whether you're looking for a place to keep living room throws, collect all of the toss cushions on your bed or stash spare rolls of toilet paper, wicker baskets like these promise to be as practical as they are beautiful.
