I am so excited to be included in Lucianna Samu's latest decorating book by Creative Press. The truth is that color can transform a space from the everyday to "TA DAA". Paint, paper, pillows, passementerie! There are many ways to bring color into your home. Have fun following the tips that Lucianna has gathered from many talented designers (including me!!) and enjoy the colorful pics of the designers' projects , photographed by Lu's hubby Mark Samu.
The smell of cut grass and dafffodil's ..... the sound of sprinklers in the morning.... I am soooo excited that Spring is here. Now that the cover is off the pool (I know, kind of early, but hey - Summer IS on it's way) I have taken a fresh look at my backyard oasis. And I noticed that the chair cushions on my Brown Jordan wicker set looked kind of washed out. So off to Kravet I went to choose new fabric to recover the cushions with. Kravet's Soleil collection (pictured- courtesy of Kravet) offers long lasting, mold and fade resistant fabrics that are so beautiful I can't believe they are outdoor fabrics! Now that my cushions are fresh and my private pool club is open for business, I am eager to start gathering the ingredients to make the first batch of my homemade sangria!
