Reinvent your backyard!

Yep it’s winter…..and yeah of course I am dreaming of a beautiful Seattle Summer and a Swimming Pool…..how can I do it? What about those who say  Seattle isn’t the place for a pool….You might change your mind after reading this blog post…. I recently made an instagram post for #wouldyouliveherewednesday and found a beautiful home in New Orleans with a shipping container pool. I did a bit of internet research and realized it might not be as difficult or as expensive to put in a pool….makes it a lot more enticing to convert the backyard into a 3-months of swimming weather oasis….eh?

Planning a 2019 Home Upgrade?

2019 Color Trends

Is it too early to talk about 2019? Is it too early to talk about post-holiday, mid-winter blues? Not when we are talking color-

Post holiday blahs and winter blues often inspire trendy home updates…after all  we begin spending more time indoors and we may as well LOVE the color of those walls.

With this in mind, the easiest way to make an update is PAINT! Who doesn’t love a fun accent wall, a brightly colored bedroom or a kitschy kitchen!

Get inspired with these 2019 color trends- You can use them all over your home (or in your wardrobe) not just on your walls. Throw in a fun, funky pillow or update your homes look with a cool accessory or new artwork.


This season brings an edgier aesthetic taste – If you love a statement you will love this years colors.  From bold black variations and feisty ox-bloody reds to sparkling mean metallic this season has a penchant for punch!

If this doesn’t sound like its your thing – never fear there is also a progression towards seaworthy aquas and cactus worthy terracotta. Let’s take a look at some of your favorite paint brands 2019 releases:

Benjamin Moore – Cool Grey’s

Sherwin Williams – Cavern Clay 

So- so -so-so good!  The company describes Cavern Clay as a “warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots,” and explains that it’s a “nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together create the desert modern aesthetic.”

According to the Senior Color Designer Sue Kim of Valspar, “Smart technology in the home is driving the color experience differently.” Because of thi

s, we will see higher intensity shades that mimic the edge of artificial light in a way that is “strangely familiar” (and obviously gorgeous).
