THANKS to all who entered the book drawing!  The winner is Erin, who likes chocolate, caramel, and plum shades! Congratulations!  I’ll contact you today about where to send it.  I hope you enjoy the book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn’t yet own it.

On the subject of lots of incredible paint colors, here are just five of my favorite hues from projects I did last year…there are many more that I love, but five seems like a good number.  It goes without saying that my go-to brand is Benjamin Moore;  I’m specifically a huge fan of their Aura (low-VOC) and Natura (zero-VOC) lines.  Remember — as always — these are my clients’ personal successes so don’t go slapping prescribed colors up on your walls without testing them first!  Here they are:

1. Benjamin Moore's African Violet, 2. Benjamin Moore's Cork, 3.) Benjamin Moore's Hampton Green, 4.) Benjamin Moore's Naples Blue, 5.) Behr's Pencil Point

1. Benjamin Moore’s African Violet (2116-50): I used this for a few few clients, but my favorite application was to define space in a dramatic open plan row house.
2. Benjamin Moore’s Cork (2153-40): This was used in a dining room and a living room for two separate households, and it proved to be extremely versatile — one space was very rustic, and the other very polished and transitional.
3. Benjamin Moore’s Hampton Green (2150-50): This was just put up on the walls of a kitchen that is in the middle of renovations.  It’s the punch of color in the room, and is complemented by distressed white cabinets with a very subtle undertone of the same hue – gorgeous!
4. Benjamin Moore’s Naples Blue (2057-30): I confess, I used this in my own downstairs powder room.  It’s a fun punch amongst a sea of gray walls.
5. Behr’s Pencil Point (UL260-22): I suggested that a business owner use this as her accent wall, and I think it added a dramatic touch that was really modern.

There are so many more colors I’ve loved this year, and I am looking forward to seeing what clients are interested in this year!

In other related news, I am FINALLY going to be taking some quality photographs of my finished interiors this January. I’m hoping to get them up on the website in February, and when I do I will be blogging short blurbs about each project.  This is something that’s long overdue, and I’m really excited about it.  So hang on…photos are coming!!!
