I’ve selected the palette below
as my favorite paint colors for this summer’s Color Event
A play on traditional Americana red, white, & blue,
I could see these colors ending up inside or outside of a Loire Valley Chateau,
Outside the chateau or your house- I love the idea of eating al fresco with these beautiful table linens or bistro dining chairs (for sale at our studio)
The paint color combination of pale grayish blue, deep red, steamed milk, and a brown so dark its almost black becomes more invigorating when energetic stripes are added in-
Chocolate and Cream Striped beach umbrellas are to me the equivalent of summer on a stick.

Are you ready to refresh your house with new paint colors?
What should go hand and hand with Spring Cleaning is updating a few of your paint colors in the house.
What a great feeling to have a fresh new kitchen color, or dine with your friends in a new dining room atmosphere!
With a few new window treatments and great accent pillows to go along with the new paint color, you can have a fresh look that will last you through the summer and into the winter.
Here are my favorites that are sure to brighten up your day:
Not only do these colors really appeal to any application they seem to carry a summer, winter, fall, and spring feeling.
I could see the blue’s in an office to create a relax and calming environment. The green’s go great where there is a view out to your yard. They complement the green grass and beautiful flowers in full bloom.
Not only can you fine refreshing paint colors but fabrics that can be used as new window treatments or new throw pillows on your lovely couch.
Our clients & friends, the Cummings family, recently painted their dining room a delectable orange color from Benjamin Moore after the installation of some lovely wallpaper we specified from Schumacher. I thought I’d share some before & after photos of the exciting process.
For those of you last minute shoppers out there- consider a paint consultation from Design Lines
as a gift for your loved one. A paint color can change your space dramatically & breathe new life for the New Year into your home or office.

P.S Special thanks to the Cummings
for allowing me to post these images, I especially adore the wreath hanging in
the chandelier above the table.
Here’s a little color (or shall I say colour?) inspiration for your weekend. I was perusing the Designers Guild website for some fabric and came upon their paint products. The hues were remarkable and decidedly European in their saturation levels.
From the website:
“The Designers Guild paint range
of 98 exciting paint colours reflects a fresh and dynamic approach to modern living. The paint is of superb quality and offers enormous coverage.”
I am especially drawn to their collection of pinks & fuschias- they are beautifully vibrant & unusual. My favorite part of the website was comparing the paint colors- this tool allows you to create schemes very easily. See mine in the screen capture below:
Be sure to check out their website to see a diverse collection of inspired fabrics and schemes. I love the image below:
