The Power of Color

Hi Girlfriends, I have been reading a fabulous blog by blogger Maria Killam, Colour me Happy, all summer and I am in love with her. Maria is a Colour Consultant as well as an Interior Designer out of Canada. She has inspired me to look at beige in a whole different way. Even in fabrics-!!! You MUST visit her blog and learn about the 3 shades of beige from her. She describes beige so well and with photos that it would be difficult to duplicate what she says so well. One thing is very clear what she says, "Hire" a professional to assist you in selecting colour for your walls. The power of colour can transform a room. Take it a step further and finish it off with a decorative design can add a whole new dimension to a room.

Isn't this a stunning bedroom? The focal point is the bed and it is the heart of the room. I love everything about it. Even the price is right................DIY. A crisp graphic wall treatment is simplicity itself. Look how the wall is painted black then two white lines are added for the headboard. This is where white bedding with just the right touches of black accent give this room an "architectual" interest where there was none.

Hey Denise, thanks so much for the shout! I really appreciate it! If more readers start to understand the undertones of colour it makes it easier for them to buy it on-line as well!
