Color Me Happy

I love color. I don't think that I have hidden that fact. I mean, I do love and appreciate the white and greige craze that is design right now, but at the end of the day, give me a bright color and a bold, clean pattern and I am a happy camper.
Last week, I was having a conversation with a client. We just had her master bedroom painted a gorgeous robin's egg blue green (Sherwin Williams Halcyon days 50%) and she was lamenting over the fact that several, well-meaning friends with beautiful homes had implied she was making a terrible mistake. They felt that a white wall was the way to go. Really? This friend and client has a wonderful home that is full of color. White? No way! Color is not "out", in fact it is "in" in a big way. No, bold and bright isn't for everyone, but aren't we lucky that there really isn't a wrong answer? So, let's all get all along.
I love the way that Anna Spiro of Black and Spiro in Australia does color like no one else! I absolutely adore her work. I don't know how she makes it work, but every room is a riot of color and fun. So, enjoy and have a colorful, happy Monday!
