Trending Colors: Warm Terra-Cotta

The Petrone family (@arrowsandbow on Instagram) never expected to find their next project while on vacation on Anna Maria Island, Florida. Already pros at flipping RVs, when a rundown inn on the island caught their eye, it was natural to see it as a potential project. 

They put in an offer and had secured the four-suite inn before their vacation was over. In a matter of months, they were onsite working. It wasn’t long before the inn was complete and open for business. Ashley and Dino Petrone’s vast Instagram audience loved watching “Joie Inn” come together from start to finish. 


Aiming for Warm & Family Friendly

What drove the entire project, and what often drives the Petrone’s projects, was their own family. Ashley focused on creating suites that her family could enjoy. She ensured every element was kid friendly and provided details that would make the space immediately feel comfortable. 

Ensuring the design was warm and inviting was the first step and color played heavily into that. Ashley wanted a design that reflected the beach community with its bright, happy vibe but also wanted to give it an update. The result was four warmed-up and trending colors that formed the foundation of the design for each room. Each room is named for its feature color. Today we look at the largest of the suites.

The Terra-Cotta Room

The color terra-cotta blends rose, orange, and brown into one color that oozes warmth. Ashley chose terra-cotta because it reflected the sunsets, soil, and overall vibe of the sun soaked island. The color gives a nod to the traditional island palette but has a sense of freshness as well.

The room is 750 square feet, the largest unit, and the color terra-cotta is all over from the shower tile and kitchen backsplash to the bedding and decor. Splashes of terra-cotta even make an appearance in the terrazzo floor tile.

Why Terra-Cotta?

While the inn was under construction, the pandemic was in full swing. People spent much more time at home and more than one homeowner found this the perfect time to do some renovating. With work, school, and play all happening at home, the cool, spare grays and whites so popular in design just weren’t enough. 

People craved warmth, coziness, a lived-in feeling in their surroundings rather than the minimal designs that most found themselves surrounded by. The first thing that changed in this new interior design atmosphere was color. 

Colors warmed up turning from grays to beiges and allowing many more warm colors and softened palettes with sage, blush, and . . . terra-cotta. The natural and muted red-orange-brown of terra-cotta once a favorite of the back patio came front and center. It instantly produces a sense of comfort and warmth.

Terra-cotta can also be used as a neutral color that blends into the background harmonizing a design with its steadying hand. Some of the most popular colors right now can have this same miraculous effect: working as either a feature color or neutral color. They include navy, warm charcoal, mustard, blush, and gray-green sage.

Trending Colors: Island Sage

On vacation on Anna Maria Island, Ashley and Dino Petrone never imagined that their play time with their family would spark their next project. The brains behind Instagram’s @arrowsandbow, Ashley and Dino had already completed several upscale RV renovations. 

When they happened upon a little inn on the island in need of some TLC, they knew what was up next for them. They put in an offer and it was accepted before the vacation was over. Eight months later, Joie Inn was born.

Driven by Color

The story of Joie Inn is a story about color. Beach communities are known for their vibrant colors, and Ashley wanted to be a part of that, but she also wanted to give the colors a fresh update. She turned to the natural environment for inspiration. Sunsets, crashing waves, and sea oats defined the color palette inside Joie Inn as much as it did outside. 

Vibrant in a warmer, trendier way, the four colors Ashley selected were featured in one of each of the four suites. This updated vibe is youthful, welcoming, comfortable, and still reflects the beachy feel of the surrounding buildings on the island. 


The Sage Room

Named for its color scheme, The Sage Room is a large 700 square foot suite on the second floor that overlooks the pool. The gray green featured in this room is the same color you’ll find when you step outside and head down to the beach. 

Sea oats and rolling waves inspired the color choice and you’ll find it everywhere from the bedding and backsplash to the decor and throw pillows.

Why Sage?

Sage is the hottest color of 2022. In fact, Minwax, Benjamin Moore, Better Homes & Garden, and Sherwin Williams all named it their color of the year. Why? It’s a flexible and warm color that can wear many hats.

Sage is a neutral color. The gray-green shade easily works as a blank canvas that makes room for other colors and patterns. It fades into the background in the same way gray or beige can but with a whole lot more interest. 

On the other hand, sage can also be a feature color that can easily be a center of attention. It’s a beautiful color for a statement wall, makes a lovely accent sofa, and can even play heavily in decor.

Warm colors are the new go to in today’s interior design color palettes, and sage is the champion color. Its soft green and warm greige influences create a welcoming ambiance and laid back personality that embodies everything that is the island of Anna Maria.

You’ll find sage in the bathroom tile, kitchen backsplash, bedroom linens, even sprinkled across the living area in incidental pillows and decor. It’s the perfect backdrop for a relaxing vacation that feels like home, only on the beach.

Welcome to Joie Inn

Updating a Beach Vibe for a New Generation

The Sage Room bathroom at Joie Inn.


When the Petrone family ventured off on their vacation on Anna Maria Island in Florida, they never would have guessed that it would end up shifting their trajectory. Ashley and Dino Petrone, already well known on Instagram for their RV renovation (@arrowsandbow), fell in love with the nostalgic, laid back vibe of the island. It wasn't long before properties for sale started catching their attention.

A four-suite motel in need of a serious overhaul got Ashley’s creative juices flowing and their offer on it was accepted before their vacation was over. Two months later, the remodel began, and six months after that, Joie Inn was born.

“Joie” is French for joy and it was the perfect name for this inn. Between the whole family getting involved in the project and all the love that went into every detail of the space, it has become a source of happiness for everyone.

Updating the Beachy Vibe

The Island of Anna Maria is a unique place to visit. Not only is it filled with vibrant colors and the laid back feeling you would expect of a beach community, but it also embraces an earlier era. It’s like stepping back in time. That was something that Ashley loved about the island and wanted to make a part of Joie Inn’s new look. But she also wanted it to feel relevant to a whole new generation of visitors. 

Ashley took her inspiration from color. The natural colors of the island, to be specific. Sunsets, waves washing up on shore, warm sunlight, and fertile soil. 


Driven by Color

Inspired by her natural surroundings on the island, Ashley picked one feature color for each of the suites: Sun, Terracotta, Sage, and Blush. These colors also happen to be on trend and that has made the inn feel fresh and relevant. Each of these colors is a softer, warmer version of the colors that are already all over the island’s buildings. 

Ashley started with a backdrop of bright white then accented the space with the feature color in the bedding, tile, decor, etc. Each suite is modern and comfortable but is still true to the heart of the island. 


Creature Comforts

In addition to the welcoming color palette, the Petrone family has striven to make Joie Inn feel like a home away from home. Every detail is handpicked with love. Ashley often selected the same products for the inn as she used in her own home. Notably, the bedding (in the feature colors) is on every bed in Ashley and Dino’s home.

They also used the same kitchen and bathroom fixtures. Ashley selected beautiful and modern Delta  fixtures in Champagne Bronze, which further added to the warmth of the design. Crisp white TOTO Aquia toilets emphasize the simple lifestyle Joie Inn promotes.

A stay at Joie Inn is all about the experience. Ashley made it a priority to provide everything a guest could want and make family central. Beach chairs, outdoor speakers, high chairs, electric bikes, games, and much more come standard with every stay. As a guest’s booking date approaches, Ashley finds out favorite beverages then stocks the fridge. 

Family, especially the Petrone family, is built into Joie Inn. That is reflected in the experience and environment at the inn.

How Does a Touchless Faucet Work?

Touchless faucet demonstration.


You’ve just finished placing the raw chicken in the roasting pan and then you run into a problem. How are you supposed to wash up without touching the faucet and the soap dispenser with your goopy, possibly bacteria covered, hands?

Enter the touchless faucet, a modern marvel that’s cutting back on bacteria in kitchens everywhere. They turn on as you get close to the faucet and turn off when you move away. They save water (and money). They keep your kitchen cleaner. They give you better access and efficiency. 

Have you ever wondered how a touchless faucet works? Read on to learn all about it.


Touchless Faucet Functionality

There are three parts that make a touchless faucet work. Take away any of these and you won’t get on-demand water.


The Sensor

This is the part you will be most concerned about and probably the only one you’ll see on a daily basis. The sensor detects either motion or the presence of an object depending on the faucet model. When the sensor is set off, the water turns on. When the sensor no longer detects movement or an object, it turns off. 

One type of sensor works by putting out infrared light. When light is reflected off a surface (like your hands), the sensor picks that up and signals the valve to let the water through. When no light is reflected onto the sensor, the valve closes the water off. 

The other type of touchless faucet sensor uses an ultrasonic field to detect movement. When your hands disrupt the ultrasonic field, the sensor detects that and opens the valve. When the field is intact, the valve closes.


The Valve

Once a signal is received by the sensor, it engages the solenoid valve. A solenoid is an electromagnet that can push or pull based on the polarity it receives from the sensor. The valve itself acts as a gate for the water that opens or closes when the magnet either pushes or pulls. 


The Power Source

A touchless faucet needs power to make the infrared or ultrasonic systems work. Some faucets have batteries, but most are plugged into an outlet. Some of the newest touchless faucet models use a self-generating, hydro-powered system that powers itself.


Shopping for a Touchless Faucet

Touchless faucets come with a variety of perks and plusses beyond being touchless. Many limit water flow so they are compliant with water conservation standards. Each faucet’s on-demand flow stays on for varying lengths of time so if you like the water to stay on a bit longer, choose a faucet with a longer flow time (10 seconds). They also come with different aerators to create a non-splash, softer flow of water. Be sure to check out the specs when you shop to find the perfect fit for you. While you’re at it, check out touchless soap dispensers too.

Touchless faucets come in all kinds of shapes and styles. Gooseneck is a classic look for both the kitchen and bathroom. Spouts are a favorite for more contemporary designs. Finishes vary from chrome to gold and everything in between.

8 Bathroom Remodeling Don’ts

Bathroom plans becoming a reality as someone imagines what it will look like when completed.

Undertaking a bathroom remodeling project is hard work from start to finish. No matter how much you plan, something is bound to go wrong. Avoid some of the drama by steering clear of these things. It will take some of the pressure off and keep you on the right track. 


Don’t Forget to Set a Budget

A budget is a magical thing. At a basic level, it helps you understand how much a bathroom remodel costs and how that intersects with how much money you have to spend on that remodel. On another level, it can act as a guide that helps you make decisions quicker.

When you have a budget, you set guidelines for yourself as to the materials, hardware, and accents you can use in your new bathroom. This comes in really handy when you’re having a hard time picking between your three favorite bathtubs. Price may help you narrow down the best option. 

A budget also helps you see what’s coming down the pipeline and plan ahead for your spending. Maybe you’re tempted to spend a little more to get that bathtub you love, but one look at the budget may remind you that you wanted shower jets and you decide to go more conservative on the bathtub in favor of the shower jets instead. 

If there’s one thing you remember about the budget, remember that it’s highly likely that you’ll go over the budget. There is always some unforeseen thing that needs to be tended to and adds costs that you didn’t plan on. Always add a 10-15% bumper to the budget to soften the blow of the unexpected.

Don’t Proceed without a Design Plan

Starting a bathroom remodel without a solid design plan is like taking a car trip with no maps or GPS. If you only have a destination in mind but no guideposts along the way, you’re sure to get off track or miss something important. 

If you hire a contractor or designer, this will probably be taken care of for you. However, if you’re DIYing all or part of your remodel, be sure to think through every aspect of your remodel down to the tiniest details. 

A design plan doesn’t just keep you on track, it also helps you avoid changing your mind midstream. It’s easy to second guess your decisions, but a plan will help you keep track of your vision and goal. It’s also a good idea, once you’ve come up with your plan, to stop looking at ideas and shopping for products. Changing of the mind is the biggest culprit of over-budget, late projects. 

A design plan will also help you avoid bathroom slip ups like overlooking features you want, adding too much to the design, and over designing your new bathroom. Get a plan and stick to it.


Don’t Overlook Lighting

Lighting is so important in the bathroom. The bathroom is only surpassed by the kitchen in it’s lighting demands. You need to be able to have true light for up-close tasks like shaving and application of makeup. You need to have mood lighting to create a relaxing spa-like environment. You need nighttime lighting for those midnight trips to the bathroom.

Be sure to consider all the different types of lighting you’ll need in the different areas of the bathroom. Don’t be tempted to go with basic lighting; you’ll regret it before that new bathroom smell has a chance to dissipate. 


Ask a designer or lighting expert to take a look at your space and make some recommendations. It’s well worth the quick visit to get lighting that will meet your needs.


Don’t Dismiss the Importance of Ventilation in the Bathroom

Ventilation in the bathroom is important on many levels. It’s a place of increased humidity and a variety of smells, all of which need proper ventilation. Without a bathroom fan to handle steamy showers, you may end up with a mold and mildew problem. 

Bathroom smells may not pose a threat to the structure of your bathroom like humidity does, but without an efficient way to evacuate and circulate air, those smells may make your bathroom a place you avoid.

Be sure to check your current exhaust fan to ensure it is powerful enough to handle the size and demands of your new bathroom. Your contractor can help you out or turn to a professional to give you some DIY tips.

Don’t Get Stuck in the DIY Downward Spiral

A few YouTube videos do not an expert make. It can be easy to get in over your head when you DIY your bathroom remodel. If you don’t have some construction experience, be sure to plan for plenty of backup should you get stuck. 

The bathroom involves electricity, plumbing, and detailed construction. It can go wrong quickly. You would not want to run the risk of a bathroom that poses a risk to your home, let alone the increased cost in time and money when you find yourself in over your head. 

Be aware of your limitations and don’t be afraid to ask for help. Define ahead of time where you’ll turn the project over to the pros so you don’t feel like you have to keep going when you know you’re not equipped to deal with it. 

Be wary of friends and family members who have little experience. They may sound confident, but their mistakes can lead to problems too, not to mention injuries and broken relationships. 


Don’t Cut Corners

Remodeling is a big job, especially bathroom remodeling. It’s easy to get tired, but don’t be tempted to take shortcuts. Things that cost less or promise to save time also often result in lower quality and the need for more attention in the future. Attention to detail is a must in a bathroom remodel. Don’t skimp simply to save a little time or money. 

Never overlook local building codes and regulations. It may seem like a bother and a part of the process you’d rather not deal with, but it’s there to ensure your bathroom is well constructed and doesn’t pose a risk to your home’s structure or it’s inhabitants. 


Don’t Put the Cart Before the Horse

It’s really easy to get excited about your bathroom remodel and want to start knocking down walls. However, you need to ensure all your ducks are in a row before you start anything. 

A remodel requires a lot of coordination. If the new bathroom vanity arrives before you’re ready, it might take up space in the garage for far longer than you’d hoped. Be sure all your design plans are in place, the budget is set, and the timeline outlined. Get permits and contracts in order. 

You might lose the use of your bathroom for a time while the renovations are taking place, so be sure to plan carefully and not get overexcited or you might end up increasing the time it takes to finish your bathroom.


Don’t Be Too Conservative

You may have been dreaming about this bathroom renovation for a long time. Don’t sell yourself short by being too conservative. If you want the gold colored fixtures but worry about their design longevity, you’re thinking too hard. 

Of course you want to strike a balance between what you want and what will remain relevant (especially if you might sell in the future). Do some research on current trends and outgoing trends to get a sense of whether your tastes are on point. A good rule of thumb is to keep things neutral, but that doesn’t have to mean boring. Go ahead and splurge on the perks you want. 

A new bathroom is on the top of the list for potential home buyers, so unless your taste is ultra unique, there are many buyers who love the same things you do.
