Build For A Cure Show House

Recently, I had the pleasure of touring the Build For A Cure Show House, benefitting the Susan G. Komen Foundation and breast cancer research.  Lucky for me, the home is in my neighborhood (in the high rent district) so it was super convenient.  The home was built by E. S. Johnson Builders and furnished by Dutchmans.  Fantastic!  I instantly fell in love!

Design Tip: Choosing Paint Color

I just wanted to piggy back off of my design tip from last week.  Last week I discussed choosing the right type of paint for your project.  This week I want to talk about choosing paint color.  And this can be a daunting task.  Especially since there are so many shades of white, or red, or blue, to choose from.  But never fear, I have some sure fire ways to choose colors and get it right the first time.

My daughter knows her way around the kitchen.  Now, at the tender age of 7, she can make us breakfast (pancakes) or dinner (tacos or crusted chicken).  And she is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to baking.  That being said, I am no baker.  I don’t like it.  But in an effort to keep her occupied this summer, I thought I’d begin looking for cupcake recipes.  I have a feeling this summer is going to be cupcakes galore!  And boy did I find some amazing recipes!

Design Tip: Types of Paint

Have you ever gone into a paint store and knew exactly what you were going to get?  You had agonized over the paint color, measured so you knew the amount of paint needed and had gotten multiple estimates from area painters.  So you walk up to the counter and tell them what you need.  And then you are asked “what finish would you like?”.  What?!  There are different types of paint?  Yes my friend, there are.  And here is what each is best used for.
