Aaaah, something to celebrate...
My little blog here has turned one year old!
I’m so proud I’ve made it this far and been able to reach so many design lovers out there. And I thank each and every one of you for visiting and sharing my love for the beauty and business of interior design. Really, your support means the world to me.

Gray has slowly come to us, here in the suburbs, and I have to say, it’s one of my most frequently asked questions. Clients want to go gray, but don’t really want to paint every wall, ceiling, or piece of yellowish moulding and cabinet in their house. I can understand that, it gets expensive.
Add in the fact that you might have shutters the same color as your moulding, AND that your switches and outlets may not be white either because they were chosen to work with a more yellowed tonality, and you’ve got a pricey investment.
Check out two of my tips for dealing with this design dilemma by clicking through.
Most of the time, I’m a little anti-moulding around here. The reason why is because builders tend to add mouldings just to impress buyers and oftentimes in this area, they’ll add them to Mediterranean or Tuscan style houses and just about any suburban home without considering transitions or appropriate style.
Read on to see some examples.
There were days, not too long ago, when we painted dining rooms in deep, rich reds to work with a rich, Tuscan style. That’s not happening much anymore.
Reds are getting used in new and different ways today and I’m sharing some gorgeous red paint colors with some interesting ways to incorporate them into your home.
As you may know, we’re moving next week. Eeeek!
We’ve been going through samples and files and stuff for the last month in preparation for our new slimmed-down design studio that will only house products we want to use for the type of projects we love to work on.
Before this move, I really had to evaluate my studio and how it served me.
