There is a great new color palette application by SHERWIN WILLIAMS

I tried it and it is pretty accurate. 
If you find the colors too bold just use it as a guide by picking up the palette and using a toned down version if the color. Here are a few examples for your viewing pleasure.

My favorite paper design by A CREATIVE MINT
Expanded version of color selection from photo

I also dragged they toolbar button to chip photos directly from the net (second image).
Let me know how it works if you try it out. Have fun Chipping!

Blurry photos and inspiration


I was wondering if anybody keeps blurry photos they have taken over the years. Well I do.

I came across this blog by Urban Comfort that reminded me of the unfortunate mistakes I made with my camera that finally looked kind of artsy enough to keep all this time.

Here are some of mine.
Blurry picture of me (kind of scary when I look at it)

I call this one "Swirl of fushia" My favorite

Hope you are enjoying your day.

New Wallpaper by Eijfinger


It's about time I blogged about my favorite wallpaper company from the Netherlands  EIJFINGER. It is available in north America. Usually through designers like me.

I was checking out their new collections of wallpapers and I really liked the KALEIDO book of wallpapers. The collection's name is derived from the greek for "Beautiful Shapes" which are in this book.

The colors are beautiful, very modern and young.

I love several of the collections they offer and the prices are very affordable. I haven't been able to order their coordinated fabrics as of yet from my supplier here in Canada. I will soon share my favorite books from them. Until then. Take care and peace...
