Color Trends

Benjamin Moore has announced its 2012 Color of the Year.  It’s Wythe Blue and it’s one of my favorites.

Take a look at this kitchen from my project featured on the over of the March 2010 issue of House Beautiful:

House of Turquoise just ran a great post with lots of inspirational images using Wythe Blue.  Be sure to head over and check it out!

Design Camp Update, Designer Mail Bag and More…

Posted by

Well the inquiries for Design Camps are coming in like crazy. I have commitments from several people for the basic and the advanced camps in November and a Blog Camp in December.  All I need is to get 15 of you confirmed for each session and we can officially “book” the dates. I would love to do that by end of this week so we give everyone ample time to book flights and hotels. 

So based on the responses so far, here is what we are shooting for…

Basic Design Camp   Saturday, November 6th  9am to 5pm (Cost of camp is $500.00)   Need 15 campers minimum to book date!

Advanced Design Camp   Friday, November 12th 6-9:30pm and Saturday November 13th 8:30am-5pm (cost of camp $750.00)   Need 15 campers minimum to book date!

Blog Camp    Friday, December 10th 9am-5 pm (cost of camp $500.00)   Need 15 campers minimum to book date! Sign up for this camp just in time to have you blogging by the New Year!!!

We will feed you breakfast, lunch and snacks for the daytime sessions and the advanced camp will include dinner Friday night. Of course we can always have our fun “fireside chat” following classes on Saturday evenings at the Capital Hotel Bar and Grille. Each camper is responsible for your own food and drink for this portion but it’s a fun casual way that we really get to know each other!

We will also provide transportation to and from the Capital Hotel for design campers for all classes.  If you are coming from out of town, please let us know so we can help you with any questions you may have about travel, hotels, shopping, restaurants and more. And if you come in for the Friday Blog Camp in December and want to stay in Little Rock for the weekend to do some Holiday Shopping, we will provide you with a shopping, restaurant and entertainment guide to help you check everyone off your Christmas list. 

So don’t delay…grab a friend and sign up for these camps today. That way we can ensure that they happen! And don’t forget we cap each class off at 25 campers. Email us at or call 501-868-9882 to reserve your camp spot. We take Mastercard, Visa and American Express.

Now for the other fun announcement…

I will be adding several new blog series over the coming months and one of those is the “Designer Mail Bag”.  This fun series is an “ask Tobi” sort of series where readers can submit a design dilemma question along with a photo of the space. I will choose one lucky reader each month and give you a solution to your design problem.  So start sending those questions and photos in today.  Submit your Designer Mail bag questions to . Be sure to attach a photo of the dilemma for your question to be considered for selection.

And last but not least, if you haven’t already seen them…The October Blog Features are up (in the right sidebar of my blog), so take some time and check them out where you will find this great space by designer Brad Ford. And please let me know what you think, what you love, and what you want to see more of.

I can’t wait to see your camp reservations, your Designer Mail Bag questions and your comments on the October features start rolling in.

As always, thank so much for your support!! xoxo, Tobi
