cool palette 

Winter is a long season-no way to change that. It is so important that the design of our home offers us warmth, emotionally and physically. Home is a place that is solely about you. Not about selecting colors for resale value, or what trends have sprouted, or what the 'home shows' are selling this episode-just about what you really need to make it your own. The more questions we ask ourselves, the more successful the design will be.

Let's make that happen.

One way to achieve a successful design.......COLOR!

The colors of this season are cool ones, to be sure-grays, blues, whites.  This palette can cause one client to feel the chill, while for another it promotes a sense of calm. They may create a crisp and defining backdrop for one environment and yet in another be distracting.

Color plays a critical role in any in good design. Missing the mark will make your new design fall flat. Getting it right will make your new design sing!
