The Inspiration


Lately the days have been spent researching and planning for the renos. Plans fluctuate frequently! The lovely picture is the little getaway of artist Elaine Van Berkel that was featured in the Spring 2008 Cottage Style issue of Canadian Home and Country magazine. I love the bright light, the perky color accents and the rustic chandelier. A very inviting place for anyone to create what they love. This is a great inspiration for my little studio space. Picture twig furniture instead of the turquoise chairs ( although I love them) and add in bright colored handwoven baskets. I found some colors I like from Benjamin Moore so will visit our local dealer Mr. Paint. I even like the sound of the colors "potpourri green" and "blue lake". It's beautiful in my head. Paint a studio in your mind and let me know what you think. Can't wait to get started! We could really use a spring this year!

Oh so very exciting! If I could have a dream job, it would be for a paint company, naming the colours!
