5 Go-To Spring Decorating Tips

via Tamara Anka at CitrineLiving.com

open-kithen-shelves-blue-and-white-accessories-dishes-bowls-apothecary-jarsSTYLING TIP # 1: ADD YOUR FAVORITE COLOR

You may or may not know I am a die-hard fan of classic blue and white. I’ve grown my collection over the years from a few pieces sprinkled around here and there, to large groupings on counters, shelves, tables, you name it. You’ll find it incorporated everywhere throughout our home, from season to season. So naturally, color is a big one for me. Even though I’ve been using this as my main color for quite a while now, it plays a major role each season – especially how I’ll play other colors off it.

Many of you know I love faux flowers and use them all the time. I’m not always able to find affordable fresh blooms where I live, so I have built up quite the collection of gorgeous faux stems for my regular rotation. When I am able to find beautiful fresh blooms locally, or cut them from the garden, you can bet I have them. Nothing brings in the beauty of the warmer months like gorgeous fresh flowers!

CURE BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION LAUNCHES “THINK PINK” TEXT-TO-DONATE CAMPAIGN FOR MOTHER’S DAY 2018

mothers-day-text-to-donate

The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) is providing yet another easy way to Think Pink this Mother’s Day with the launch of a text-to-donate campaign that will raise important funds and advance innovative research that could dramatically change the treatment for breast cancer in the years to come.

Starting on Wednesday, May 9th, 2018, CBCF will accept mobile donations in a “Text for a Cure” initiative throughout Mother’s Day weekend.  To participate in the campaign and donate via phone, simply text the code: DONATE to (973) 828-0883 and follow the link to indicate the amount you’d like to contribute to the Clifton, N.J.-based not-for-profit 501(c) 3 charity.

All monies raised during the weekend will support trailblazing breast cancer research being conducted under the direction of noted oncologist, Dr. Larry Norton, at the world-renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and other national and international research facilities.   Since its inception in December 2007, CBCF has raised over $7 million for breast cancer research, which has been devoted entirely to Dr. Larry Norton’s and his colleagues’ research on the growth and spreading of breast cancer cells known as the Self-Seeding Theory. This research focuses on improving the understanding of not only breast cancer, but also other cancers.

Donors can also visit www.501auctions.com/cbcf to dedicate fund to support CBCF efforts.

For more information on the CBCF, please call (973) 471-CBCF (2223) or visit http://curebreastcancerfoundation.org.

5 SPRING TRENDS TO SPRUCE UP YOUR SPACE

Designer-approved trends inspired by the season.

BY Since launching her eponymous interiors firm in 2007, New York-based designer Young Huh has specialized in turning houses into homes, one room at a time. When it comes to her own spaces, she’s all about a seasonal refresh with of-the-moment decorative accessories and unexpected finishes. These small changes can make a world of a difference for waking up a tired space. Ready for a renewal yourself? Use Huh’s creative ideas on upgrades for spring.

shot-03-hero-080r-15221769371. Refresh Your Room’s Energy

Pale blues and serene greens can really change the mood of a space. No need to break out the paintbrush or buy a new sofa to get those peaceful, chill Spring vibes. Instead, focus on layering colored accents into your existing decor—adding a blue frame or candle on a living room console, placing a porcelain glass vase full of fresh flowers artfully on a mantel, and showcasing crystal topped containers can all enhance your room’s positive energy.

The award-winning Wagner College Theatre, as part of its 50th Anniversary Season, is proud to present the great American rock musical HAIR!

Featuring a timeless score by Staten Island’s own Galt MacDermot, with book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, Wagner’s HAIR is directed by Broadway veteran Darren Lee (National Tour The King and I) with music direction by David Sisco (WCT’s La Cage aux Folles).

HAIR celebrates the 50th anniversary of its Broadway premiere and the Sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat the show features popular anthems like “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In,” “Good Morning, Starshine” and the title anthem. HAIR reminds us of such ideals as peace, love, and acceptance — and what it means to be young and believe you can change the world.

HAIR features Kevin Atwater (Claude), John Drinkwater (Berger), Sophia Tzougros (Sheila), Bailey Claffey (Ronny), Sabrina Kalman (Jeanie), Hadly Patterson (Crissy), Tyler Ross (Hud), Remy Barson (Margaret Mead), Travis Harley (Dionne) and members of The Tribe – Miranda AbbottJamie Baio,Gabby BakerSavannah BeckfordMargot BergeronErin DamersDavid DinesCassandra DoughertyMatthew DrinkwaterKimmy FriedmanScott HokeDana KluczykKyra Denise LeeDeVonté MccrayAnne Elizabeth MieleRyan MoroneyBen MurassoCynedra OsinaikeKristine PalkaTroy Rood, and Garrett Toole.
