Ready for my class

In the fall I will be teaching an adult ed class on color and decorating. I have gotten all my materials and feel very ready. Quite a bit of the material come out of my book "Color Made Easy" and its' free bonus books . Good information for just $7.99 and a lot cheaper than hiring a decorator by the hour for the same info.
Go to and click on the bookstore to find out about all my books and how to order them. You will be very happy you did.

Color is So Important in Your Interior Decorating!

I am taking refresher classes on color in interior design. It can really make or break a room's design. I want to pass along to you some of the "must have" info before you make all your decorating decisions!
The 60/30/10 formula is still the gold standard. Basically, it means use your main color 60%, your secondary color 30% and a dash of accent color in 10% of the room. It always works! See how your rooms stack up against this proportional formula.
There are lots of great color schemes out there. What are some of your favorites? How do they make you feel?
