Modern Art and Minted Giveaway

Posted by

I was recently asked to guest judge an art contest for Minted, an amazing online marketplace for independent artists and designers. The Art Fair Challenge was inspired by art shows and fairs around the world, and was open to all works of art that can be reproduced on paper.

Judging this amazing art exhibition was a tough job! There were so many gorgeous entries, from paintings to photography to collage to pen-and-ink drawings. But one work really drew me to it right away – it was Mingle by Julie Song Ink.

The first thing that caught my eye is the color – I am known for my use of color and this blue just grabbed my attention. But what really made me select this gorgeous artwork as my favorite was the movement and excitement created by the swirls and splatters. It actually reminds me of the creative process I go through in my own work. It is a vibrant and electrifying work!
Isn’t that a gorgeous piece? And now it will be available in Minted’s amazing line of cards and art! And they really do have an extensive line – in fact, they are going to offer one of my blog readers the opportunity to win a $500 gift card to purchase cards, stationery, gifts, or art from their site! Isn’t that amazing!


We will hold a drawing on Thursday, Oct. 30. All you have to do is register by filling out the form to the right of this blog post – and the bonus is that you will get a free download of my Top 10 Ways to Add Style with Color! Register between now and 5pm on Oct. 29 and we will draw a name from all the entries, and will announce the winner here on the blog on Oct. 30. That lucky person will have $500 to splurge on the Minted site!

Good luck!



A Chance to Celebrate – and to Win!

Posted by

I was thrilled to be asked by Annie Selke to create my favorite bed using fabulous Pine Cone Hill products, all to celebrate PCH’s 20th anniversary! Now you know I love my bed – I work in it, I watch television it in it, and I read to my daughter Ellison in it. It’s like my oasis from the world! So to create a fun look for a bed is right up my alley.

As much as I love color – and you know I do – I also love crisp, clean white bedding. My selection offers the best of both worlds with an on-trend fuchsia that fits my signature look of bright, bold, and tailored!

I also like layers on a bed to help you easily control how warm or cool you are, so the new Boyfriend Matelasse coverlet is the absolutely perfect weight for that. And I love it mixed with the Candlewick Fuchsia Throw – it has a terrific soft texture that you just want to snuggle into!

I’m also known for mixing patterns, and I wanted to complement the delicate ribbon on the embroidered sheet set from Pine Cone Hill with the bolder chevron pillows from sister company Fresh American. Even better – those pillows are indoor/outdoor, which gives them a great wearability factor!

This bed is fun and inviting, and if you like it too then I have even bigger news! Annie Selke is going to give one of my blog readers the chance to win everything you see on this bed – shams, coverlet, sheets, pillows, throw – that’s a value over $1,000! All you have to do to enter is to put your name and email address into the form on the top right of this blog and you will be entered to win! We’ll draw a name from all the entries on Sept. 25 at 5pm and will announce the winner on Sept. 26!

And if you enter to win, I’ll also send you a free download of my Top 10 Ways to Add Style with Color! It’s a win-win!

Happy Anniversary to Pine Cone Hill, and good luck to all of you who enter!

I’m thrilled to have my designs featured as part of the exclusive Icons Collections from Lamps Plus! The Icons Collection is comprised of designers who were asked to design a shade pattern that is unique and available exclusively at Lamps Plus for a limited time.

I really like the classics when it comes to design motifs, but then giving them a more modern twist. For this shade design, I took inspiration from the trellis work on vintage bamboo furniture, and then made it a little bolder and more updated.

The pattern is also customizable in the Lamps Plus Design Your Own feature, which gives you the ability to select the pattern, color, and base. You can create any look to fit your room!

To make this even more fun, Lamps Plus is launching an exciting sweepstakes where you can win one of five Icons Collection table lamps. Enter to win here. After you’ve entered, you can earn extra entries by referring your friends and increase your chances of winning.
