Let me start with the not-so-big secret: I LOVELOVELOVE color! Everything about it gets me excited. I love the way that it can evoke a mood, change your perceptions or transport you to another time. While I love everything color, I do not follow trends. What?!? That is right: I could not tell you what the color trends are for 2015, what the color of the year is or how the color market is changing.


Now that you know my BIG SECRET, let me tell you why.

Over the years, I have realized that as much as I love the color aspect of my job, perhaps my favorite part is the transformation from house to home. Our homes are our nests, our refuge from the world, our safe place to land. When I go into a house, I want to do whatever it takes to make your house someplace that you love to be in. And 99% of the time, that has nothing to do with trends. So I stopped following them. Because when it comes to our homes, happiness reigns. And let’s face it – joy never goes out of style.
