I'm thinking we should do a spare room with two twin beds, it would be great for girl friends sleeping over, nieces, or nephews or even couples
(I know secretly they want their own bed).
Summer is officially here and the perfect time to let nature inspire you!
The grass is green, the trees, plants & fields are green. Lettuce, cucumber, spinach, peppers and onions are green, hurray!
I love green!!

Being a hot colour for 2013 and the birthstone for the month of May I thought I would share how the designers have been influenced by this rich jewel tone.
Have you ever picked a paint colour in the store, loved it, but got it home and it looked totally different? Colours change when viewed under different lighting conditions. Some colours that tend to look quite different under certain lighting conditions are gray, grayed-blues, taupes, tans, grayed-greens, grayed-yellows and mauves.
Natural sunlight is considered the idea light source it maintains a neutral balance between the warm (yellow cast) and cool (blue cast) ends of the light spectrum. Here, direct sunlight provides the truest rendition of the colors in this room.
Northern light is the coolest, while light from a southern
exposure is most intense.
At the beginning of the year I introduced the Benjamin Moore's colour of the year, lemon sorbet 2019-60
It's not a scary yellow, it's smooth, it's soft and oh so yummy.
I have always loved yellows, not the bright school bus yellow, not rubber ducky yellow but instead yellows that are upbeat, warm, happy & fresh.
I just wanted to share my love of yellow without going crazy with yellow overload. You can add touches of yellow to bring a little happiness & use different tones to add interest.

This is a colour wheel, a simplified colour wheel, it's bright, it's colourful, it's round and it frightens a lot of people. I have taught many a room full of adults how to use this universal tool, the first response....deer in the head lights look. This is a great little tool and once you learn how to use it, a light bulb will go off and you'll see colour in a whole new way.
