Good morning! How’s your Sunday going so far? I woke up earlier and watered my garden first. I feel it is such a bless for me to enjoy my garden in the morning. I love to observe how morning sun light shines through the greeneries with a little cute dew drops. It is such a romantic moment for me. What’s your Sunday mood? what color are you in mood for today?
We visited an art installation yesterday and it is about colorful rolling-hill landscape in Ireland. I’ve never been to Ireland and I guess people there must be very happy. You know that is true since we all have a good time on St. Patric’s Day. so here is my sunday color block mood-board. Enjoy!
One of my favorite things to do over the summer weekends is scrolling around little beach towns in the neighborhood. I couldn’t think where I can go to get some fresh cool beach breeze , explore unexpected vintage founds and enjoy my different colors of macarons. Often, the color palettes on the hight streets of these little towns are so fascinated that they put me in such a relaxing mood. I start to slow down and really take time to absorb and observe my surroundings. So, today I am going to feature color of red. Color of red refers to passion, happiness , positive vibes, high fashion, romance. When pairing with pale blue, pink , black and blush, it creates different moods.
When we are still embracing all of the shades of Pantone color of the year 2019 –Live Coral, PPG, the paint company with 135 years history just recently introduced its Color of the Year 2020—Chinese Porcelain. Just by the name, your mind starts to imagine those crisp Chinoiserie blue-and-white. Yes, it is kind of blueish color, combining rich cobal blue and moody ink blue. It’s calm, elegant, modern, chic.
Maybe because summer is here and I immediately fell in love with this color. I feel it is so ease on eyes and have a depth.
To choose right paint colors is to make us feel good in the room. Usually the paint colors that make us feel good often make us look good. Who wouldn’t want the paint colors that flatteren our skin tones? Here are 7 designer-approved paint colors that make us look good in any room:
Oval Room Blue 85 — Farrow & Ball
Blue is one of those colors that just happens to flatter every skin tone, This particular shade has a little gray in it, which makes it even more soothing.
2. Pale Powder 204 — Farrow & Ball
“Like a true blonde — and those who want to be one — this pale blue-green is complex and enchanting. Throughout the day, it changes from robin’s-egg blue to gray-green, radiating a subtle glow that makes both people and furnishings look like the best versions of themselves. Pair it with moss-green velvet upholstery, modern art, and black-lacquer chinoiserie.” — SARAH BARTHOLOMEW
3.Deep Forest Pine 30GG 09/106 — Glidden
“I’m just back from Paris, and this green was everywhere — on people in the street, on the accessories and furniture in the antiques shops on the Rue Jacob, and even at the flea market. Imagine how great it would look in a dining room. It would really set off a face, as well as a painting. Do it in lacquer for a beautiful sheen.” — SUZANNE KASLER
4.Antiguan Sky 2040-60 — Benjamin Moore
“Aqua is a calming color, which balances a fiery red-head like myself and makes for a pretty room. Actually, most people look good in aqua, and when you look good, you feel more confident. I often like to use a range of one color, so I might add a darker teal or Prussian blue. Red or pink would punch it up and give it more pizzazz.” — LINDSEY CORAL HARPER
5. Dance of the Goddesses 23-1A — Valspar.
“You know how beautiful a pearl necklace looks against skin? Maybe that’s why this appeals to me. It’s the softest, most luminous pearl with just the slightest hint of pink. Paired with silver hardware, cream trim, and Thassos marble, it would make the most elegant dressing room. Add slate or navy to intensify the effect with some contrast and drama.” — JOAN CRAIG
6. Calamine 230 — Farrow & Ball
“While watching the Academy Awards, I was struck by how beautiful the starlets looked in pink. They simply glowed! What better color to surround yourself with in your bathroom? Simply fill the tub and feel pretty, calm, and soothed. No plastic surgery needed here…just a glass of pink Champagne! Cheers!” — MELANIE TURNER

I used Dimity in my bedroom when I moved into my Manhattan home six years ago and I’m still impressed by the softness and elegance years later.” — Anna Beeber
