I’m not one to follow the rules.

In fact, I teach my kids to think in shades of grey (bad R-rated reference) and throw black-and-white thinking out the door. If you are thinking, and thinking wisely, you are off to a better start than simply ‘following the rules’ or coloring in the lines.

Why Orange?


Why orange?

Why is it so many American home interiors are white or beige? Why is it that realtors staging homes choose neutrals colors to ‘be safe’ and appease a broader audience? It drives me crazy! Are we trying to fit in? Are we afraid? Is it because beige is thought to equal calm and feel safe?

Look around you. Nature, the best design of all, is full of color.
