Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

This time of year is my favorite. So much hope, goodwill and love in the air.
As you gather with your loved ones I want each of you to know how thankful I am to each of you. Your comments, visits, and encouragement mean the world to me.

May this year bring you the desires of your heart and make this year one to remember!

True Color Expert Workshop

I had the privilege of attending Maria Killam's True Color Workshop a few weeks ago in Vancouver, BC. Maria just did a wonderful post on our class. Check it out here

I have followed Maria's blog for years (I've actually read every post) and ever since she announced her color workshops a few years ago I have wanted to attend.  I finally got my chance!


 A peek of what greeted us each day!



In this exercise we are working with different colors and separating them into the following:

LIGHT or DARK (also called value).

WARM ( Red, Yellow, Orange) or COOL ( Blue, Green, lavender).
 CLEAN (bright) or DIRTY (muted)
In this exercise we are using our new found undertone knowledge to work with fabric samples.  Neutrals are the hardest to combine (if you don't pay attention to the undertones) and in this class we went into depth. If you are interested in knowing more on this topic I highly suggest Maria's e-book!

Don't you love yours truly on the far left deep in thought... 
A lot of people took the course to gain more color confidence, and we did! I now have the tools and language to communicate with my clients better and give them the look and feel they are after! Not to mention making those tricky places in my own home work. (Look for upcoming posts on this soon!)
We had so much fun as we explored the world of undertones. We talked about creating flow in your space. We talked about how to perform effective color consultations for interior and exterior spaces. I really enjoyed that the workshop that was a mix of lecture, hands on learning and interacting with other designers (new and seasoned). We really got the best of everything!


Here is a group of my class and newest friends! You can't miss me in the bold blue coat!
