The perfect paint
While researching an upcoming column on how to choose paint colours, I came across a video made by design expert Cobi Ladner for Sharp Electronics. It's got some good tips. So I thought I'd share. Click here to watch. While I do love colour (such as the vibrant red from Beauti-Tone shown in the pic above) and have been recently ooh-ing and aah-ing over some of the brighter hues from the line Beauti-Tone did with Style at Home magazine, I must say my fave colour this year is the subtle String shade from Farrow and Ball I used on my cottage living room. I think my husband must be getting sick of me saying, "I love this colour!" But I do, I do! Every time of day I walk in the room, in any kind of light, I love how it looks. And I love how it looks in the evening, when it's lit just by the woodstove or candles. I think it may be the perfect neutral. Pictures soon, I promise.
