Cool Fireplaces

I often help clients reface or reconstruct outdated fireplaces. Depending on your architecture and design there are some really great new products out there to choose from. Stacked stone, cast concrete, tiling, suspended fireplaces....here are some ideas that I love!!

Paint Colors I Like

So, if you have ever painted your home or tried to pick out a paint color...you know it can be a daunting task. Truth is that paint is the LAST thing you pick when doing design. There are too many factors that can change paint selections, such as upholstery, window treatments and hard-scape materials. You should have these materials selected before you begin your paint search. Of corse lighting pays a huge factor so be sure to paint a large sample on you wall to view at different times of the day before you commit to a color.

Here are a few Frazee paints that I love together...
Museum CL2681W this is a great neutral color
Hailstrome CL3012W is a great gray color
