Taking A Chance

March 7, 2013

I just wanted to shout out a sincere “Thank You” to all my friends here. You know I entered the Tobi Fairley Olioboard Design contest a couple weeks ago:


I was really nervous to put myself out there to be judged by my peers, family and friends. But, I really wanted to win the prize of going to Tobi’s design camp ‘How To get Published.’  Here was my entry:

For The Love Of Color

The contest ended yesterday and I found out today that I did not win. But I did come in 11th out of 414 entries! I had 412 votes for my entry! Isn’t that great! I am very pleased and proud of myself that I did enter the contest and take a chance!

Have you tried using Olioboard? It is a very user friendly site that lets you design a virtual room using products that you can actually purchase. It is another great way to show a client, or yourself, how a room can look on a digital display board of the products you wish to use in a room plan. Another creative toy to play with!



So taking a chance is scary, but I am so glad I went for it! Thank you again so much everyone!!  xo

every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. #coloroftheyear


Online Living Room Design Plan

Recently an online client wrote and asked if I could help her with a design plan for her living room working with a color palette she fell in love with. She found this combination at designseeds.com :

Italian Colors

I also love these colors! So pretty. I found a couple pillows at crateandbarrel.com and here and there online that I sent her. I wanted to see which see loved best to get a better sense of her style:





And the winner for favorite pillow:

She had a white sofa (easy to work with!) and this is the design plan I presented her:

She was very happy with everything and is going to purchase the items over time.  I just wanted to share with you!

Have a great weekend my friends!
