What's In and What's Out Lists that I plan to share with you today and throughout the week are primarily for fun. Do keep that in mind as well as the idea that I did select

What's IN and What's OUT:
"IN -- Honeysuckle is the color of 2011! The color (above), selected by Pantone, is literally popping up everywhere! The perfect color to brighten up the new year!
OUT -- the neutral room is so out as far as we are concerned, everyone needs a pop of color to brighten up their room, their day, their spirits!" (photo credit: Elaine Griffin)
"IN -- Living With What You Love! It's a time to forget those trends and live with the things that you love . . . your individual style; a decor that celebrates sentiment.
OUT -- Extravagant and Trendy Looks!
"IN -- Intimate Dinners with Friends. A small gathering for dinner or cocktails is so in! OUT -- the big, formal party!"
"IN -- Edible Cocktails . . . like the Bonfire with a toasted marshmallow! Reminiscent of toasting marshmallows by the campfire!
OUT -- those "frou-frou" mixed drinks!"
"IN -- Mosaic Glass Tile . . . Contemporary, simplistic lines actually become transitional working into most any room style!
OUT -- Tile that is just too 'over the top.'"
"IN -- Rescue Dogs for pets! OUT -- Pedigree Pooches in Purses!"
