I recently discovered the Agave community in Austin, Texas. Which then led me to FAB Architecture, a husband and wife team that designs commercial and residential architecture and interiors. I found the work of Patrick Ousey, AIA and Pam Chandler to be very interesting and you can click here to view their site and learn more about them and their projects.

I saw this today and I knew I had to share it. Love how it visually illustrates the principles of color in such a fun way.


Interesting article called ‘Tertiary Hues‘ in the Stir website by Sherwin Williams. I think this is a great one for students to view regarding color theory.

I would love to meet the owners of this home, they seem like they would be a lot of fun!

I am excited to announce that there are now interior photos posted of the “UP” house house created by Bangerter Homes. Click here to go to Hooked On Houses to view lots of interior photos, the floor plan and learn more about the home. Currently this home is on the market for $399,000 or you can have the same floor plan built without all of the movie features and colors for $299,000.¬† I think this was such a creative way to draw people in and advertise their company!

This amazing wall paper was designed by Payton Turner and is created out of thousands of stickers! I love the nod to traditional patterns but done in such a unique whimsical way. In addition to wallpaper created from stickers you can view her hand drawn papers here on her site. Also, click here to go to Little Green Notebook to see more pictures and her plan to redo her daughters bedroom with stickers.

More color inspiration to brighten your day. The color on those stairs would certainly make me a little happier as I climbed up all of them!

This Brownstone painted hot pink is just fun and fabulous.
