Cool Blue.

The sweetest of blues, that perfect hue with a hint of green, can be so clean like all of those fresh white rooms in Sweden.  Maybe thats why that watery blue is so perfect for bathrooms but I’m pretty sure it can freshen up any room in the house. Here’s the nudge, paint it blue.

I am seeing a lot of twin beds lined up, neutral room, some colorful antique furniture and bam a quilt topping each one. This would be fabulous in a guest room, guest house or cabin

An anomaly: Should you hang your artwork directly on the face of your bookshelves?

You can do whatever you want. Tracy Garet did it.

I don’t even know if this would ever have occurred to me if I hadn’t seen it in magazines. I usually like to poop on the rules, yet for some reason even I am feeling slightly uncomfortable about it. I looked up from the House Beautiful Magazine at Sarah’s house and asked her and she was 100% “SURE!!!”

I’d really love to go into someones’ home and get smacked upside the head with this surprise in real life. Have you done it!? What do you think about it?
