"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Another spring project

Now that the warmer weather is on its way (fingers crossed) I have been anxious to tackle my front door with a fresh coat of paint.  Well, I'll be honest, I would redo the whole exterior if I had it my way!  Even something simple like a new paint color for your front door can make all the difference.  Yesterday while enjoying a grande non fat extra hot vanilla latte;) I was flipping through Domino magazine (oh... how I miss it) and came across a photo from the November 2008 issue by the style icon Miles Redd who was often featured. It is actually a picture of his own townhouse in NYC and I absolutely fell in love with it. It is the perfect robin's egg blue and it looks so inviting. Don't you think?

I'm thinking Palladian Blue (Benjamin Moore)?
