Day 11: Maria Killam’s How to Choose Paint Colours

Posted by

It’s probably no secret, but in case you haven’t heard, I love color. I can’t get enough of it whether it’s in my wardrobe or my designs!

One of the greatest color geniuses of our time is Maria Killam and her new ebook, How to Choose Paint Colours is a must-have guide for any color enthusiast!

Why I Love It: It’s such an in-depth guide to understanding color and why we gravitate toward specific shades. Plus, she gives invaluable tips about selecting the right color for the right space. If you are a designer — or just a color lover (like myself!) — I would highly recommend giving this book a read.

Where to Find It: Visit Maria’s Site to purchase a copy for download.

Before and After Family Style

Posted by

For this family home, the goal was fresh, hip and fun. In a house with 3 children, taking ourselves too seriously was not an option!

I punched up the coral shade in the entry from soft to saucy for a striking result.

The decor for this home began by combining two single adult’s households into a new residence and had to be transformed as they started a family together. The living room was the perfect place to bring in loads of seating in kid-friendly finishes and accent with pops of color.

Just after family move-in day, the dining room hadn’t had any attention yet. But it wasn’t long before we had it boiling over with color and pattern.

The client is confident in her love of color, so we gave her exactly what she was looking for!

The Master Bedroom started with several existing pieces, but after we were finished, it barely resembled it’s original look.

The breakfast room lacked personality. But a little zebra print turned it all around.

Red walls in a room with no windows made for a lackluster hang-out for the Family Den. I lightened and brightened for a fresh and cheery result. Now this is everyone’s favorite spot!

For a pre-teen boy this room lacked fun. Now it’s the perfect playground for TV, games and hanging with friends.

This large retreat was for the middle child. Now playtime, sleeptime and study are allowed.

From guest to nursery, this room evolved.  It was dark and drab and now it’s full of pizazz.
