New Story on Domino: Adding Color to Your Home

I contributed another story to Domino magazine. No big deal, folks. I’m just really important. (I kid.) This story is on how to combat fear of color and incorporate it into your home. You can see the full story here. I will talk more about this soon on The 256 Project, expanding on what I touch upon in the Domino story and also show how I incorporate these tips into our own home. Yes, even the “keeping it neutral” tip!

That’s #SoDomino

Oh, hey there! I took a little break from The 256 Project to contribute a little sumpin’ sumpin’ to Domino magazine. The slideshow is about DIYing outdoor spaces on a budget, even in small or unconventional areas. For some reason, the link only works on desktop browsers, but check it out and let me know what you think!

So I pinned that picture and then, over a few months, pinned a couple more photos of bedrooms with dark blue walls, wooden headboards and white comforters. I went from having a vague idea to having a very specific one quite quickly.

Dear Painting, You Suck

Paint Colors

Dear Painting,

I love you and respect you, but I’m also starting to hate you. As the easiest, most inexpensive and effective way to transform a room – so I’ve heard every designer and interior decorator say – we thought we’d incorporate you just about everywhere in our house.

We’ve been in this house almost four months and have painted four rooms and we’re not done yet. We are worn out and so sick of painting! But we can’t deny how fabulous a good coat with primer in a beautiful vibrant color really changes a space and makes this house more and more “ours.”
