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.


I am having a hard time multi-tasking.  We are in transition, staying with family while we look for a house.  Let me tell you, I am not good at not having my space.  Everything feels unsettled and I am the type of person who would clean the house in college before I could begin writing a paper.  Thus, the lack of posts.  But I did have something awesome happen to me and I wanted to share.  My work has been published in Jezebel Magazine.  You can see the entire spread online starting on Page 151 or you can visit my Press page on my website and look at full size photos under Spaces.
