a little pretty....





these gray and white pics have me swooning....such a pretty and fresh color combo!
did y'all receive the house beautiful 500 paint colors edition in the mail this weekend? i did...
i love reading other designer's favorite colors but beware, if you are loving the actual paint chip that they show in the magazine, it might be slightly misleading. I got out my paint decks to compare and somewhere b/w the paint and the printer, the colors got off. however, it is still such a valuable resource b/c these colors have been tested and used again and again by the designers. my only thought would be to take the magazine to the paint store so you can look at the actual colors they are suggesting in person. happy monday everyone!

I love the last photo. I'm ususally a bold color/pattern girl, but that room makes me want to repaint and redecorate! If you subscribe to House Beautiful do you get the paint edition (I do, so I'm just wondering..) Love your blog!!

I'm always interested to know what other designers are doing. It's great inspiration for me, and I like seeing if I'm on the same wave length with them. I have to confess, I have recieved the mag, but been too busy to open it up. Next on my list!

I loved HB's paint color issue...I've already tagged a ton of colors I want to try out. There are SO many choices for colors out there it's nice to have a source that pares it down a bit.
