Hello! How is everyone this beautiful Friday? The sun is shining here. The birds are chirping. And business is BUSY. It is definitely the season of home improvement.

I'm happy to share

my latest article

in Marin Home Magazine on space planning. The digital issue just came out on Tax Day (hopefully some of you are getting refunds???) and local peeps should see the print version in their mailboxes any day now. 

If you're struggling with space planning challenges - for a Great Room or any room -  this story's for you. So head on over and take a peek. There's lots of other good stuff in the magazine, too! And don't forget - I offer space planning as one of my design services. So if you need some help getting out of a layout rut, give me a call. I just might be able to help you see your space differently.

Marin Home Magazine: Color: The Essential Element of a Great Space

Once again, I'm honored to be part of Marin Home Magazine. The latest issue is online ready for your viewing pleasure. And, guess what I'm talking about?!? Color!

A little teaser:

The color of your walls is the most critical component of your room’s color scheme. Wall color will almost single-handedly determine the mood of a space. Therefore, a good place to start when selecting color is to ask yourself what mood you want to create. How do you want your space to feel? Masculine and intellectual? Lean towards smoky blues and grays. Flirty and feminine? Pinks and pale turquoise might do the trick. It may take a little practice matching moods with colors, but if you get stuck you can always enlist the services of a color consultant.
