Inspiring Neutral Interiors

By, Denise Turner, ASID, CID, CMG 
Call them beige, taupe, gray or off-white, but don’t call them boring: Neutrals are the most versatile interior design colors. Either standing alone or serving as a backdrop to flashier colors, these comforting hues are timeless classics.

Color Run-Team Color Turners

If you love color and can run, walk or roll, then the “COLOR RUN” is for you! The “COLOR RUN” is a one of a kind experience that’s less about speed (they don’t even time you) and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family. http://thecolorrun.com/about/

Two weeks ago I ran this crazy 5k of my life, with my two colorful kids. Just imagine hundreds of silly people, wearing tutus, snorkels with diving masks, super hero costumes and anything else that would get a laugh; then to be blasted with a different color at every kilometer.

They say that the color is a special “elf made” recipe of magical color dust and that it’s 100% natural and safe. They also said that is washes off easily. Hum! That part isn’t true; my feet are still an odd colored blue. But it was all worth it. If the COLOR RUN comes to your town do it! If you truly love color, you don’t want to miss it….blue feet and all.

Here are some photos, of the event done by Natalie Bouroumand, an amazing photographer.

Cookies are Powerful Treats

Yes! It's Girl Scout Cookie Time

By Denise Turner, ASID, CID, CMG
Color Turners

At a time when everyone’s making every dollar count, I’ll be the first to admit that it can be difficult to cough up $4.00 for a very small box of cookies. Even if those Thin Mints are perhaps the best thing that will ever cross your lips. But before you say no, to those adorable, pint-sized cookie peddlers, think again. The sales of Girl Scout Cookie help girls develop a strong sense of self-confidence, team building, goal setting, money management and much more. You see, cookies are powerful treats.

Now seriously! Can you think of anything that will give you this kind of return on your investment, for less than five bucks? So buy one, buy two, buy many because you’re investing in our future leaders.

You never know, one of those little girls might be our future US president or the scientist who discovers the cure for cancer or the leader who initiates world peace. While on a completely different scale, one of those little girls might go on to receive her Girl Scout Gold Award (highest award) and grow up to be an international colorist, Certified Interior Designer, speaker and author.

To learn “How The Girl Scouts Built Their Cookie Empire”, read this by the Business Insider. http://www.businessinsider.com/how-the-girl-scouts-built-their-cookie-empire-2011-3?op=1#ixzz1kxtyg1OR  Images by the Business Insider.


"Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place."

Got Small House?

Big Isn’t Always Better
In recent years, the answer was to call a contractor to make it bigger. However today’s soft housing market and high-dollar home equity loans have tempered consumer spending. In fact, smaller homes are in high demand because they are less expensive to purchase, maintain, heat and air condition. Here's how to maximize your home’s space without increasing its square footage.

  • If your refrigerator backs up to the garage or closet, many times it can be recessed so that there is more kitchen space.
  • Multifunctional furniture is critical. Storage ottomans serve as coffee tables and a place to conceal items when unexpected guest arrive.
  • Tankless water heaters save space and money.
  • Table and floor lamps add clutter. Recessed can lights free up valuable floor space.
Small homes encourage family interaction and are usually friendlier than larger homes; not to mention quicker to clean.
