THE TROUBLE WITH PAINT COLORS....





THE ART OF CHOOSING COLOR
Southern Chateau

Today, I'm addressing a challenge a lot of us have. 
Whether we are using a fabric swatch, a photograph, or standing in front of hundreds of little colored squares
there is one thing we all face when decorating, or redecorating our homes.... 
TROUBLE PICKING PAINT

DRIFTWOOD


GRAY AND BEIGE ARE FRIENDS
Skagway, Alaska
Driftwood store front
I took this photo while cruising the beautiful waters of Alaska.  I could blog on and on about the colors of the water, the mountains, the glaciers, the sky....and I probably will, one day.  Alaska - incredible scenery and fun little towns like Ketchikan and Skagway, where I couldn't resist this little building completely covered in lovely, soft gray driftwood.... charming, isn't it?

PRIVACY ISSUES


FRENCH DOORS AND SLIDERS
(for Lynette)
Houzz
I love rooms with french doors.  There is something fresh and appealing about a room filled with open-pane doors, a welcoming to the outdoors and the wonderful light-filled rooms they create.  I love photos of rooms with rows of french doors, like the one above - lovely views - open and unobstructed.  You can see the green of the gardens beyond, the flowers, the sunshine...  the neighbors.

GOOD GREIGE CHOICES

SUMMER.... WHERE HAVE YOU GONE?

This Summer season has flown by so quickly
and I've barely mentioned gardens at all
(probably because I have been trying to ignore the awful state my own garden is in)



But I do have the pictures I took of the garden at Ward and Child, a rather wonderful home decor and
garden shop I try to stop by when I visit
Salt Lake City, where my mother lives.

and I really loved this unique and musical water feature there
