Thank You Piedmont Garden Club

I had the pleasure of speaking to the Piedmont Garden Club on April 11th. My topic was Orchid displays. As you know, I  love orchids, so it was such fun. This was the nicest and most fun group of women, and I love meeting them.

Paint Color Trends 2017

Saturated colors are back and trending in 2017.

We have been living in a neutral world for the last 8-10 years, but the tide has turned and bold colors all the rage. Although I still prefer a neutral pallet, I think this could be effective if used sparingly and with a bright white trim. I wonder if this shift reflects the design worlds reaction the 2016 election?

Here are some of my favorite bold colors.

Ralph Lauren Amalfi Blue
