color: Monday's Favorite Color! Ben Moore HC 144 Palladium Blue - 01/11/10 02:36 AM

Color doesn't get better than Palladium Blue! 
A terrific neutral to use when you get your house ready for sale! 
It allows you to bring in color - and also to use it as a neutral because of its gray undertones.
Here is some color speak:  The Dewey Color System categorizes Palladium Blue into the Blue Family - white tones, with a neutral color blend of Black.   Don't worry if that makes no sense!  
This color can be used as a neutral for your home. 
It is a multi-tasker for all kinds of rooms!

color: The Power of a Haven For Healing - Part 1 - 06/02/08 05:49 PM
Haven For Healing is an outreach project sponsored by the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition and IRIS - Interior Redesign Industry Specialists.
The project is bittersweet - redesigners renew the space of a woman battling Ovarian Cancer.
It is bittersweet because redesigners get to do what we love and we get to meet and renew the home of some really great women who are battling this dreadful disease.
This past weekend the New England Chapter of Haven for Healing - Jill Hosking, Kathy Narkowictz, Susan Noel and Margaret Innis - had the privilege of redesigning the Master Bedroom of Sue G.  Once … (27 comments)

color: Ugh! The Pain! - 12/28/07 01:40 AM
Making color choices is truly painful!
Taking the Pain out of choosing paint colors by Christopher Muther, Globe Staff, is a great article of how to get rid of that anxiety!  Christopher interviewed David Oliver, a color guru from London, and author of a gorgeous coffee table book:  Paint and Paper:  In Decoration!
You can find the article at
Some of David's advice:
Test your shade:  'Don't just look at paint colors on a flat surface.  Paint the inside of an old shoe box.  That way you can see where shadows fall or how light behaves with color in a room. 
Tart up hidden spaces:  Paint the inside … (8 comments)

color: Desperate Builder Loves Staging! - 03/08/07 09:48 AM
Imagine you have a desperate builder calling you.  He has problems:
His spec house is still on the market, his "construction insurance" is about to run out and he has hit his bottom line. and calls you to stage the house!  
He wants the house Staged last week!  You know, I should have done it sooner! 
Your stock is already working someplace else so you will need rental.  Ok here we go.  I dislike using rental.  I have several key pieces that work well for me.  And I like them working for me - slow months you still get a check.   But this builder is … (13 comments)
