It’s time for my round-up from 2015! Hope you are enjoying this holiday week!
Here’s the first one. Read and tell me if you think I nailed it or not ; )
Here I’m talking about how less is more when it comes to posting on social media and also how my business model has evolved over the 7 years I’ve been blogging.
This was the best post of March and also the worst! I lost 150 Facebook fans in one day and I was totally traumatized, haha. A lot of people obviously just read the headline and thought “YOU ARE SO WRONG LADY”.
But just read this post before you judge. Grey is the backdrop for clean and bright colour which you have to admit is now officially EVERYWHERE in shelter magazines.
I’m just saying, as I’ve said many times in the past, DO NOT buy grey everything for your house. That’s the only thing that’s OUT because it’s never been IN.
Hey, there’s a trend here, doesn’t it seem like my most popular posts are about trends? This one is no different. It was my recap from High Point Market in April last year.
The spotlight in this post was on tissue pink which was one of Pantone’s colours of 2016 this year.
This year, I’ll be holding my Specify Colour with Confidence™ training in Charlotte right before market for those of you who are already going. Register here.
Do you use the triangle principle unconsciously like I do or will this be one of the best tips you’ll learn about styling in a long time? Read on to find out. . .

Strong blues are definitely a trend that is not going away anytime soon.
Here’s a lovely space that I had so much fun transforming with my lovely client Barbara.

This year I was in Italy for 3 weeks and while I was there, a few of my True Colour Experts™ helped me out with some guest posts. Here is another beautiful blue space decorated by Ruth Chancellor:

A lot of designers say that the best way to create flow is to take one strip of paint colours that go from light to dark and use them throughout your home.
Readers of my blog know better. Flow is about transitioning colour by keeping clean colours together and muted colours together. See the tutorial on how it’s done right here.

This year, I introduced the distinction 9 undertones to help make it even easier to understand my system. Everywhere you go in the world, they are the same.
See them all here.
And if you missed the tour of my house all decked out for Christmas INCLUDING my Master bedroom (below) see it all here.
Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing holiday my lovelies! I’m hanging out this week, catching up on some reading, movies and we’re going to Harrison Hot Springs and taking my Mom with us for New Years Eve. That should be fun! I’m posting what I’m up to on Instagram this week if you want to follow along!
See you Next Year!! xoxo Maria
