What's hot for home this fall - Yellow!

As the days become darker, shades of yellow provide a sense of warmth and comfort and
are the perfect way to perk up your home. If you're thinking about painting (maybe just try an accent wall) these are
some colors I adore:
Sunbeam #328
Egg Yolk A14-5
Honey Tone 360C-3
Dandy Lion BHG614

If you don't want to commit to wall color, how about some wall words?
This is a great way to add some holiday fun and allows for temporary or permanent
customization. Trading Phrases - allows you to "write out loud" on your walls (and even appliances).

On a smaller scale, try accessorizing with beeswax candles, a yellow throw, or try holiday lights with an amber glow. Or... just stick some branches in a bucket for instant outdoor gratification indoors!

My company provides event coordination & interior redesign services.
My forte is using what you already have and incorporating natural materials into design. I have a passion for people, plants and parties.

Before I started my business, I spent many wonderful years as Olbrich Botanical Gardens' Special Events Coordinator in Madison, WI. Prior to that I was the Event & Media Coordinator at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin in Spring Green, WI.
Most recently, I could be found playing with plants at Klein's Floral & Greenhouses in Madison.

My colleague, Mike Gasch, was kind enough to ask me to be part of his blog team, so
here it goes! Each week, I'll share design & decorating inspirations with you.
I hope you have as much fun reading it as I do writing it.
