I was thrilled when I received a call from HGTV magazine about one of my designs.  They wanted to know what color was on the walls and if they could print it.  So I told them I would think about it.  Not really- I sent them everything they needed immediately.  Months later it is finally available on newsstands.  Between you and me, when I first saw this color I wanted to repaint it, but it grew on me and obviously others like it too.  Sometimes the first glance is just so different that you don't like the change.  Does that happen to you?

I also did this dining room in blue - Benjamin Moore Pacific Ocean Blue.  I have a thing for blue, black and white - you'll see soon when I post photos of my recent weekend bathroom update.
Don't be afraid of color.
