Candice Olson - Love Her!!!

Ok so here we are February 2012 (Happy Valentine!!) and I am working on new colors and finishes. I am loving neutrals again, returning from the deep jewel tones to the lighter and brighter spaces that lift us up and make us feel as if we are new and crisp! I am still loving the Blues, such  a soothing color and wanting to use it paired with taupe and grey tones. Using color on trim to create a focal point or frame for the room. I just viewed a video for Certa Pro (who I have been working with) and loving the use of dark trim in this space http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fB4aZMKWzi4

Here are other pictures from rooms that are giving me inspiration this year.  I loved working with textures and colors. Some of the finishes that I have enjoyed are grisaille murals (monochrome grey colors), chinoiserie,  layered damask finishes and stripping. Decorative Painting has been a passion for me for many years. Using decorative finishes can breathe life into plain spaces, almost making the walls come alive, giving them dimension and or texture!! Although you want to be sure that if you do a textured finish it is something your absolutely love, these types of finishes are usually for life and not for the faint of heart or person that changes their decor like we change our shoes. These finishes make a bold statement, but are somewhat permanent. Here we go…… tell me your favorite space! As always stay tuned…

Base color on this finish is ylang ylang. Other colors used were Metropolitain and Cotswald. The stencil was done in Modern Masters Silver and Lamp Black. So Many layers!!!!! This finish was such fun and the family that I worked with was so great!! Good fun great stories shared. I will update this post shortly with the recipe for this finish and step by step photos. Stay tuned as always!

Meaning “the flower of flowers,” tranquil ylang ylang is a calm, meditative yellow. Like the fragrance of the tropical Asian flower, this shade will relieve stress and anxiety.
