Another Home Project Completed

April 7, 2018

So nice to be able to say that, isn’t it? I love finishing up projects, especially ones that were on the list forever.  My husband Mike was involved, so it might have taken just a little bit longer to be completed. His project priorities are not always the same as mine!

The magic of paint! My previous red wall, Ben Moore Raisin Torque 2083-10, was a great color for awhile, but I have wanted to update for at least six years now. I wanted something different and unique.

We had the custom cabinet made about ten years ago and still love it. It used to be an empty alcove when we bought house. See the previous yellow walls? They were painted Ben Moore Honeymoon from the Affinity collection.

I thought with the black TV,  black walls would work perfectly:Read More

Help Selecting Paint Colors

January 6, 2011

We know that paint is the easiest and least inexpensive way to update and refresh a room without having to change anything else. So why are we always holding back and afraid of making the wrong color decision?

Do you tend to stress out and seem to run around in circles when it is time to select a paint color for your home?

Do you put off the project again and again because you are so hassled and anxious about it?

Are you having trouble knowing exactly where and how to start your decorating project??

These are the most common dilemmas I hear when talking with clients about choosing a paint color.   They just freeze up because they do not know where to start and then end up painting boring beige again to be safe or end up not painting at all.  Just think how proud you would be every time you walked in the room to see what a gorgeous room you did yourself!   And believe me, the right paint color is what brings the room alive, what makes it go from drab to beautiful, and what brings everything in the room together.

Well, if you would like to start the new year by learning the basics of color selection for your home, check out my video: The Magic of Paint – Choosing Wall Colors For Your Home. It is especially geared toward those homeowner’s who need help figuring out where to actually begin the decorating process. It helps guide you step by step on how to ask yourself the right questions before you even begin making  color choices in your home.


You will also learn how to begin the paint selection process using your existing furnishings.  The video is fun and educational with many decorator hints and tricks.  One tip I talked about in the video was that by adding a black element, for instance a black box, a black picture frame or other black accent piece, you clarify and enhance all the other colors in the room.  Try it- it really works!

During the month of January only,  The Magic of Paint” DVD will be offered for only $12.00 which also includes shipping and handling!!
