Thinkin PINK….

Good Morning!
I hope you enjoyed your weekend 😉 It is Monday morning, Columbus day in fact, and yes I am at my desk enjoying my morning coffee (already on cup 2!) getting organized for a productive week!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and as we head into the second week I thought I would gather some images with PINK in mind that are sophisticated, elegant, graceful and strong…. exactly like the women who fight this battle….

Picking out the Perfect Pink paint is challenging! If you aren’t painting a nursery, you don’t always want a bright saturated color and you don’t want to end up with Pepto Bismal on your walls! Here are 3 of my top PINK picks:

Benjamin Moore: Odessa Pink HC-59

Benjamin Moore: Brighton Rock Candy 1291

Sherwin Williams: Cultured Pearl SW6026

Enjoy your Day!

Don’t be afraid of the dark!

Well Good Afternoon to you!
It was a beautiful day in Atlanta today.  We had a bit of rain yesterday to wash away some of the thick layer of pollen that has been residing about, so today the air just felt fresher!

One of my favorite items to select on a home is the exterior colors.  It is the biggest statement about what the feel will be on the interior and of course it is the first impression that is quite easy to make or break! As with design, there are no rules, so you can pick what you feel the house truly needs.  It is so important to really analyze the entire street scape when picking colors – you want your house to blend and stand out all at the same time… Tricky but definitely achievable!

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE white… but one of the most striking exteriors to me is BLACK.  It is Bold.  Sophisticated.  Chic.  and somewhat Glamorous.  I love that it can work on anything from farmhouse to modern and have the same striking affect.

Would you be so daring as to paint your house black? What would the neighbors think – I think they would be jealous! I know I’m not afraid of the dark!

Enjoy your day… well, evening at this point!
