So I’m officially a Certapro blog Junkie, and my friend Ed Mattingly has joined the team as their faux expert. I met Ed a few years back when I did some work for Sherwin Williams. He’s such a great guy and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to decorative finishes and Sherwin Williams Faux products. I enjoyed attending a workshop Ed hosted, he was introducing the new Faux  line of Products from Sherwin Williams. We really had fun working with some of the newer products especially the smooth metallic and venitian plaster!! So easy to apply and great results!

This post was  written  for me, I  love to relate colors to food (who would guess this little italian girl would do that!).  This take on color from our Certapro blog inspired me, so here we go… which is your favorite group?? I’m loving the Berry Rich!

XOXO

From the moment I started working on a design for my home I knew that this was something I was passionate about. I enjoyed exploring ideas, letting my imagination take over, no limits to what I could create in my mind. Of course my husband (who has been in construction for 30 years) is a great source of information for me. He always listens to my ideas and with his background in engineering and construction helps me bring my ideas to life!

I could only imagine…. That is how every design has started for me. My husband and I are soul mates, we dreamed of the home where we wanted to grow our family and somehow we were able to bring it from our mind to fruition. This was by far my biggest accomplishment in design, both my husband and I still sit every day in awe of what we have created.

Recently I have been working with Ted and Terri Gargano. They are a young couple who own a franchise called Certa Pro Painters, I was pleased when they asked me to come aboard as their interior design consultant. I have worked with them in the past and I appreciated their offer to use my talents to grow both Certapro Painters and my own deisign business. I love Envision Magazine, a publication that Certapro Painters puts out to inspire you, and also their blog, here is one of my favorite entries:

Colors for Fashionistas

Whether your home is a castle or condo, you can raise your status with these high society paint colors. Pamper yourself in decadent colors like Exclusive Plum or Gala Pink. Indulge in hues of Daring, or treat yourself to Champagne and Caviar- paint colors that is. What better way to live the dream than surrounding yourself with the colors of success.
