New Mexico News! Plus a recap for the New Mexico readers

I will be attending the Annual Landowners Meeting and will have a table Saturday afternoon, August 15th at the Mountainair Activity Complex with builders, contractors and fellow designers. I am also donating two books, stained glass artwork and 1 hour of free design consultation to the auction. I’d love to meet my new neighbors and further discuss my Kitchen and Bath Design services.

“Fear No Color” tips from article in Su Casa Magazine, Author Linda Applewhite

Take cues from nature
• Select colors that resonate with who you are: colors of your own skin tone, eyes and hair
• Choose warm colors, especially if your climate is not warm in the winter
• Notice the colors of your clothing, dishes, artwork, and fabrics
• Select colors with the same feeling: toned colors, pastel colors, jewel-toned colors or primary colors
• Select colors that are next to each other on the color wheel such as red, orange and gold. To add POP, accent these colors with complimentary shades (in this case, blue and green)
• Add some white and black or brown to a room to accentuate the presence of all colors
• Repeat your color palette throughout your property and don’t forget the garden!
