EASY ELEGANCE

My friend and photographer, Shawna Henrie did a wonderful job photographing one of my projects..
So excited to show you the transformation - 


We actually have several rooms to share, but in the interest of keeping the post
to a reasonable size... I will just show you the entry, formal living room and stairs here...
promise more to come, later!
When Fawn and Carey first purchased this home, it was bland and dated....

PROPER USE OF A COLOR PALETTE

To make your decorating flow through your house and look pulled together and like everythng is meant to be there, you need to repeat colors throughout the rooms - 
this room is predominantly beige, with cream and soft blue accents - the next room can have the same colors with a stronger showing of blue or cream, or even a stronger hue of blue - as long as its in the same family.

A LITTLE FACELIFT

Can you believe that February is almost gone?
I blinked… and it was nearly March!
but its still a new year and a chance for a new foot forward.

 Chances are your home could do with a little bit of a lift, too. 

COLOR OR NEUTRAL?



There's been a lot of talk about color for 2014.
When I hear colors thrown about, like Radiant Orchid, I have to remind myself that these are 'trends' 
they are talking about.  I'm not 'trendy' per se.  
I like something that will stand the test of time - 

which is why I like a nice neutral background so that when you get tired of that trendy color - and you will - it will take only a few changes to go on to the next trendy color or a more lasting look...

BOYS ROOMS

BOYS WILL BE BOYS
But at a certain age they don't want to be considered 'little' anymore.  What to do when your boy grows out of his 'little boy' room? 
add a little grown up style

THE FIFTH WALL - CEILING COLOR

Looking up....


The ceiling is often considered the 5th wall of your home.
Most of the time it is neglected, forgotten, and ignored.

But when it isn't, it can be breathtaking.

A ROOM WITH A VIEW

We talk about contrast.
We talk about color
Whether in 'pops' or splashes or immersion

But there are times when rooms should be quiet

WINDOWS, WALLS, CEILINGS AND FLOORS.....

OR JUST CEILINGS, TODAY...

so, maybe not all at once, but in trying to plan ahead on the blog, I decided to talk about the 6 walls of your home - counting floor and ceiling, of course - at least a couple of times a month....


Don't you love walking into a beautiful room, taking in all the fabrics, the paint, the furniture, the lighting, the flooring, and then looking up and seeing more beauty?

OPPOSITES ATTRACT...

Too much of anything, no matter how much you love it, is not a good thing.
So if you have a very warm wall color,
toss in some cooler tones -
