    I wanted to thank you for posting the color source. I actually recently set up an office in our spare bedroom and your last color guide on the use of color pink was quite an inspiration and I ended up using Behr Reverie pink. I love the way it turns out. I’m thinking of using wheat bread in all 3 of our bathrooms.

    I would love it if you could create a “Style” archive section of all the cute outfit moodboards you made. Sometimes I like to go back and see the outfits you put together. You have a great style!

    First of all, just let me say that I LOVE to read the names of paint colors. Second, I have not had lunch yet and your paint colors made me really hungry: afternoon tea, white grape, swiss coffee, chocolate froth and wheat bread. Yep, sounds like a good meal to me!

    Sorry to double comment but just noticed the curtains in your guest room – They are beautiful. Do you remember where you got them? (crossing fingers that it’s a internet vendor)

    You have such an eye for choosing the perfect color. I just love Wild Aster! I bookmarked your post a few months back listing your favorite shades of pink and I referred to it recently to help me choose the perfect shade of pink for a chair I’m redoing for a little girl. Thanks for sharing!

    Nice choices, Nicole–so soft and pretty! I wish I had that quality in my life a little more. I’m all about super saturation and bright colors and my apartement is started to work my nerves. I need a space that totally energizes, but maybe it’s becoming over-stimulating.

    It’s probably no coincidence that of the colors match your blog, huh?

    Thanks for the swatches.

    I just stumbled upon your blog and I’m so excited! My boyfriend and I are also fixing up a little old bungalow and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your lists of paint colors and window treatments. There’s nothing more frustrating than finding a picture of the perfect paint/curtain/whatever and then not being able to identify it! Thanks!
