It all Starts With Color & Pattern

Once you have the right color and patterns for your room design, everything else falls right into place. Of course actually choosing those elements is the hardest part of the process.  But not to worry.  I've done all that work for you!   

 

Knowing your pattern and color scheme FIRST, is the single, most critical step before you do another thing.   

While you can certainly customize and tweak my pre-coordinated palettes (below) to suite you, you must still begin with an initial recipe before you start improvising.   Hey, it’s no different than if you decide to cook a new recipe in a genre of cusine you’re not familiar with.  

 

So, say…if you’ve never cooked an authentic Asian dish. You first need to get familiar with their very particular blends of spices and methods.  Right?  And you can’t go to the grocery store if you haven’t got a list of what you’re looking for.  Right?

Well, It’s the same when tackling a design project too.  You need the key ingredients before you can home shopping too. 

 

These Room Recipes are your starting-point. Because once you have the paint color and a very good idea of the mix of patterns you’ll use, then when you go shopping, you’re far more focused and less likely to get into emotional overwhelm.   So my Room Recipe acts as your project's GPS.

Lifestyles 

Ok, first, here are the lifestyles under which I’ve organized each of my Room Recipe colorways.

These are the same I used globally when I had my own line of mix and match home products.  Not to brag but it was an amazingly huge billion dollar hit.  No kidding.   It set a standard which is now followed by leaders like Target Stores.  The Idea is that while we can’t always visualize specifically “how” we want to live, we can certainly imagine “where” we’d like to spend our time. 

Get it?   Now, you don’t need to actually live at the beach to transform your own interior spaces into a shore-inspired environment.  It’s an attitude and a feeling.  

Pre-coordinated Options 

There are a million ways to interpret each of my “lifestyles” (above).   Nevertheless, I urge you to look at all the room recipes and use your gut!  Did you know that we instinctively and involuntarily have an emotional reaction to every pattern and color we see?  Well, it’s no wonder that we are pushed into emotional overwhelm the minute we step into a paint and fabric store.   That’s why the idea of "roaming the aisles thinking that you’ll know it when you see it," is such a disaster just waiting to happen.   

 

So, below you’ll see the four pre-coordinated fabrics and paint recommendations for each colorway.  If they immediately connect with you then don’t overthink it!  Just go for it!  

 

NOTE: All the teaching information is exactly the same in each video. So, whichever one you decide to download has all the identical tips and hints you need. What does differ from video-to-video are the fabrics, paint colors and accessorizing hints. So, enjoy! 

Ok. Ready, Set, Go!
