It only took a few days during my first visit to Taos to fall in love
with the town and it's palette of adobe and turquoise.
I fell so in love with these warm yet vibrant tones that I am
painting the living room and kitchen of our mountain home in these
beautiful shades. The painting starts tomorrow and I am excited
to update the look and feel of our home and appreciate the new
atmosphere it evokes.
I love color...that's apparent in my jewelry design and in my home,
whether it be an island beach house in tropical lime, aquamarine
and cobalt blue or a western mountain cottage with rustic wood, tile
and lots of local art including paintings, photographs and ceramics.
This time I am making the move from a happy yellow gold shade
that I contrasted with a deep plum with lots of white trim including
a white staircase, dark wood floors and furniture in leather
and copper. Although this color scheme was enjoyed for quite a
few years it was time for a change at least in wall color.
I will post pic's next week after the transformation
inspired by our vacation and these photo's and look forward to
hearing your comments and opinions.
Wishing you a Colorful Life,
