This 'n That Thursdays: Color Block Interior Design

Color blocking is a popular fashion trend at the moment, and this juxtaposition of large blocks of bright colors is also showing up in the world of interior design.

The minute I saw this delightful kitchen I knew I had to investigate this trend further!  Rugs are a natural for color blocking:

This one also comes in pastel color blocks, but I prefer the bright squares.  Artwork also lends itself to this design style:
