Color Tip of the Week: Paint it blue
Take your cue from nature, like this soft blue iceberg and paint something blue. Or go the cultural route like this Moroccan shelving unit and bring out the brights. Blue is one of those cool colors that can flip flop from serene to energetic. There are so many shades to choose from, each with its own personality.

Street scapes: San Francisco
The Mission district in the city of San Francisco, California is chock full of street art. So much so that I could not resist taking these photos if not for the pattern then for the colors, wow, such wonderful combinations abound. This “Eyes of Buddah” garage door is just a hoot. I am seriously in love with this idea.
Most of the art is painted boldly on the front of the buildings and some of it is done in narrow alleyways. Anyway you slice it, this stuff is simply amazing.
Color Tip of the Week: Pretty in pink
PINK! This color has come full circle, it can be seen in fashion as a menswear color, used in home furnishings as a soft, country accent and highlighted as a popular choice for girls bedrooms. I found some great examples on the Better Homes & Gardens website that I couldn’t resist.
Pink & Black
This retro combination always works no matter the shade of pink. The black pulls pink into a different direction especially when it is used in such a happening print like the one shown here.
Color Tip of the Week: Paint finishes
Paint Cans Green Depot
The term “paint finish” refers to the amount of shine or lack of it in a painted surface. Determining which finish to use can be daunting if you are unfamiliar with industry lingo. Choosing a finish is actually very simple and some companies even provide a sheen chart which makes the consumers job a lot easier. Simply put, here are your choices.
Color Tip of the Week: Decorating with blue & white
One of my all time favorites is the simplicity of a blue & white color scheme. This “no-fail” color combination is compatible with most personality types and goes a long way no matter what size room you are decorating. Starting with Chinese porcelain as a home accent in the 18th century and moving into home furnishings with French Country inspiration, the blue & white combo has left it’s mark as a standard. There are so many great blues to choose from. The photo above is a successful example of how to utilize a deep shade in this color family.
