Colors of the Month - A Sophisticated Winter Palette

Winter time colors should evoke a sense of dignity and warmth. They must combat the dreariness of everyday winter and yet make it look like a dance.

With the trees now bare this light forest-sage green brings the foliage back into your home. It echoes the pine of the Christmas tree and would be great in a kitchen, family room or bathroom.

Golden hues are the epitome of elegance. Golden garland and warm lights feed into this color. Use this as the backdrop to your fireplace and hearth or in the entire living room. A home office would also take to this color well with mahogany built-ins.

Here is your neutral color used in transition spaces. Large open rooms and hallways, rooms that are connected to other rooms need a palette cleanser. As we move into 2016 you'll see the return of the off-white as neutral. 

Ice Milk CSP-1025

Lastly, our statement piece. The only color that says, "yes, I am brooding winter, what about it?" It's dramatic and wonderful. Paint this color in a formal dining room and use your holiday decorations of warm white lights, silver and gold and spruce to make it charming and cozy. An off-white table setting will bring back your neutral into the room taking off the edge.

Paint It Forward! My Sister's Closet

Today, My Sister's Closet has reopened at a new location and we were asked if we'd be willing to lend some of our painting skills to the Non-profit organization's reopening.  We had a really great time painting and serving in the community.  I invited along a few members from my church and they brought with them the LDS Boy Scout Troop 120.  The boys needed to fulfill a merit badge requirement which was to paint a wall.  So I brought a hand full of painting supplies and did a short workshop on painting and rolling just like a pro.  They did a really great job!  We are grateful to them and grateful for the opportunity to serve My Sister's Closet. 

My Sister’s Closet is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization established to provide free work force attire and Success Institute training to low-income and at-risk women pursuing employment.

They offer new and gently used quality clothing available for purchase to the public.
