“The Forgotten Fifth Plane” – Ceilings!
Look up! What do you see? You probably see a white ceiling with one or two light fixtures here and there. Many people neglect their ceilings because they simply don’t know what to do with them.
Simply paint it. If you want to define the space with color you can paint it a different color than your walls and add crown molding. You can really accentuate this space by coffering your ceiling or using large wooden beams that are stained to match the wood in your home.
The Emerald City
What’s the hot new color for 2013? Emerald Green, of course! Every year Pantone, the leader in color trends, chooses a “hot” new color for everything from fashion to interior design, to advertising.
Pinterest has been around since 2009. It’s a great tool, not only for interior designers, but anyone needing to decorate their home. With so many images on Pinterest, it can sometimes be difficult for people to sift through it all. Staying organized and having a clear idea of your personal style will go a long way to making Pinterest a useful tool for your next project.
an introvert’s guide to the universe…..
Most people are shocked to find out that I am an introvert. I have to admit, I was a little surprised myself when I finally discovered it a few years ago. I am certainly not shy, have no fear of public speaking, and love meeting new people.
I also need a lot of quiet time, prefer to be alone to work, and feel like I am crawling out of my skin after school breaks and snow days. When my friends were out partying in college, I looked forward to the opportunity to stay in and watch a movie. I get up early – not because I am a morning person – but because I need the quiet time to collect my thoughts before the day begins.
