One of the many things on tomorrow’s to-do list is to set up our advent tree for my girls - I’m so late doing it this year! I hang mini numbered galvanized buckets from the branches and put a little something special in them for each day leading up to Christmas. I love all the little things that make this time of year so special!!

There are a few questions I’m asked on a fairly regular basis.
1. Does the ladder in your kitchen annoy you and get in the way?
2. Can you tell me the name of your paint colors?
3. Are those floors original?
This view struck me this morning, and after I took the photo, I realized it happened to include all items I get asked about most.
So, this is where the kitchen ladder can be found most days. I only take it down for photos, or to actually use it to access the upper cabinets. Our ceilings are 11’3” on the lower level, so the cabinets are waaaaay up there. Now for the paint colors. I spent a lot of time trying to select the perfect white for the walls and cabinets, and I have NO REGRET on this selection. @benjaminmoore White Dove is all over my house, and I think it’s the perfect white. It can look a little yellowish, in certain lights, so test a large sample swatch, in your space, before you decide it’s right for you. This house is light and bright, so with all that natural light it’s never been a problem for us. Now for the blue color....I disappoint everyone with this answer, but there is no name for it. BM did a customized color match, by utilizing a piece of old trim from the house. Can you believe this color was already here? It’s the best blue ever, and I’d love to high five the previous owner who selected it.
And lastly, these floors are not original. They are reclaimed rustic oak floors from @elmwoodreclaimedtimber and we adore them. Elmwood has one of the best selections I know of, and will send sample pieces before you buy, to test out in your space. 😊
Here we removed some old bead board and a faux fireplace. We replaced it with custom raised paneling. Lastly, we painted the walls, and trim in color matched @benjaminmoore paint.
A converted garage into secondary living/entertainment. The walls were painted in @benjaminmoore “Calm” while the ceiling and sliding barn doors were washed in a wood oxidation solution.
IKEA день 13. Mood boards and inspiration. Вдоль стен коридора отдела дизайна висят многочисленные moodboards и карты цветов. Это в очередной раз подтверждает правильность их использования в создании дизайн-проектов. Не смотря на то, что не все клиенты любят и умеют понимать moodboards - это самая эффективная система, позволяющая избежать ошибок на стадии визуализации. В ikea inspiration и mood boards создают для каждого шоурума. Тщательно прорабатывают их с учетом цветовых трендов и новых коллекций. А по рабочей одежде декоратора, фактически декорирующего мебель и стены, можно отследить хронологию выбора цветов)). Стены преимущественно красят краской Benjamin Moore, указаны даже номера цветов. Так, что можно полностью воссоздать понравившееся дома) Интересно, а в России? #benjaminmoore#benjaminmoorepaint#ikeapaint#inspirationboards#inspirationboardikea#moodboard#moodboards
The #threeoaksmichigan house is a testimony to creative painting. Here’s a good before and after of a bedroom corner. The tatty pine floors got a fresh coat of oxblood red epoxy and we added a bit of low molding to amp up the woodwork and hide some ugly #diy electrical mishaps from the previous owner. The cute painter doesn’t hurt things either! #benjaminmoore#oxblood#reverepewter#victorian#painting#green @trilogyantiques
We’re pretty in love with this room. #Repost @benjaminmoore (@get_repost)

You guys... my Grandpa painted this sign in the 1940’s. I saw it today in the window at Powell’s lighting in #WhitePlains . My poppy was a “professional color specialist.” He was a true artist and an interior designer. 70 years ago before you could pick out a color on a swatch of Benjamin Moore, paint colors 🎨 had to be custom mixed. People would call him to come over to create colors that matched their decor. He would then mix the colors himself and often sold them his artwork- probably while wearing his favorite fedora. I would love to find out one day where all the original Manuel Pereiras are! ❤️💃🏻 #roots

Love the before and after on this staircase railing. For my dear client I chose @benjaminmoore Simply White and Bittersweet Chocolate! Yum! Risers are covered now but will be same as refinisher hardwoods.
