Hello Everyone!

I was chatting with some other designers the other day and an interesting topic was brought up.  We were talking about how the latest generation of designers seem to concentrate on the individual parts of a design instead of the magic that happens when e...

Hello again!

I recently read an article by one of my vendors (one that I printed out and now can't find the url for, so sorry) that summed up a lot of the design process in just four words: Style, Color, Pattern, and Size.

That's right.  It isn't even a specific color.  Just color in general.

For those of you who aren't aware, farmhouse is slowing down and color is what's hot.  For the last few years, I've been mentioning that people are getting tired of gray, but I don't think...

Welcome back!

At the beginning (or end) of every year, I try and give you a heads up about the colors of the year.  And there is more than one.  Most paint companies release a color of the year, and it is interesting to see what trends will come from them.

So, let's jump...

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope your holidays were pleasant and relatively stress free.

As you all know, 2019 is now upon us, so I thought it would be nice to do a quick review of the blog posts from last year.  This way, if you missed anything, you can get caught up!
