Year in Review: A Look Back at Some of Monarch's Most Popular Posts of 2016

As another year comes to a close, we thought we'd look back at some of our most-popular blog posts of 2016.

We kicked off the year with "Home Sweet Condo," a three-part series detailing the stunning redesign of two baths and a kitchen.

In October, we revealed Poised Taupe as Sherwin-Williams 2017 Colour of the Year.




And then in November, we introduced you to Benjamin Moore's 2017 Colour of the Year, Shadow.


What a year! As fun as it is to look back, our job as designers is to continually look forward to find new and innovative ways to serve our clients best.
