Last 5 Days of Paint Sale

October 9, 2014

If you read my latest Living Well Newsletter, you know that I am having a sale on paint through Monday, October 13th, which is the day before I leave for New York to attend the D&D Building’s Fall Market. I will be mostly unavailable next Tuesday, the 14th through Friday, the 17th, so I’m hoping folks will plan ahead and take advantage of the sale! Although both Abbey and Veronica will be here working, I like to review all paint orders before they go out, so please know, it will take longer than usual while I’m away at market. To take advantage of the sale, read my newsletter to find out what to put in the box at checkout to get the discount.

The Fall Market promises to be very exciting and starts off Tuesday evening with cocktail parties, followed by keynotes, programs and receptions on Wednesday and Thursday. I’ll be speaking at the Anichini showroom, Suite 923 on Thursday morning @ 10:00. Anichini wrote about it in their latest newsletter.

If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll join us!

On another note, have you seen the latest issue of House Beautiful? My “Hot Pink!” was included in the article “Daring Paint Colors” with a quote from Hunt Slonem describing how he used it with red furnishings. The next issue will include photos of Hunt’s “daring” paint colors used in his homes, so stay tuned! His latest book When Art Meets Design is finally out and getting rave reviews. The publisher, Assouline, known for publishing the most gorgeous books in the world, is opening a book store in the D&D Building at market where you’ll be able to get a copy. The photographs by Italian photographer Marco Ricca are beyond fabulous!

“Hot Pink!” was also House Beautiful’s “Color Obsession of the Week”!

I’ll be sure to take lots of photos of all the new furnishings and products and report back!

Looking Forward to Fall

September 3, 2014

Summer is almost over and my Fall schedule is pretty exciting! Since my last post, I’ve been asked to speak at the D&D Building’s Fall Market in NYC. Scheduled for October 15-16, the opportunity inspired me to create my new hand-painted color charts, and most recently what I think will be a handy tool for use in planning paint projects. The Design Folder consists of my  11″x17″ hand-painted color chart of 100 stock colors, plus my Whites & Brights color chart, as well as color therapy information, all enclosed in a folder large enough to also store your project’s 8″x11″ samples.

My handy new Design Folder shown on a rare Anichini hand-loomed throw. A gift from artist Hunt Slonem. Serendipity abounds!

My talk on the powerful energy of color, its effect on human emotion, and how to use it to create healing spaces will be held on Thursday, October 16th at 10:00 am in the Anichini showroom. I have been a big fan of Anichini textiles and linens for years and only recently met Susan Dollenmaier, its founder, when she stayed at Shadetree Inn here in St. Francisville. Susan is about to open her newest venture, the Anichini Company Store, in Quechee, Vermont next month where you’ll be able to purchase my paints and see nine of my full spectrum paint colors gracing the walls. Stay tuned for photos coming soon! I will also report back with the D&D Building’s schedule of other speakers for the two-day event. 

It’s been a while since I’ve visited New York, so I was thrilled when my two good friends Owen Kemp and Keith Koppens offered to go with me. At the very least, I’ll have a couple of audience members and a damn good time! 

We’re also looking forward to visiting artist Hunt Slonem‘s new 30,000 square foot studio. Hunt threw me a small party in his old studio during my last visit and was kind enough to include me in his newest book “When Art Meets Design” due out September 9. Do I have wonderful friends, or what?

When Art Meets Design by Hunt Slonem is available for pre-order on Amazon.com

I’m thrilled to be mentioned several times in Hunt’s book and can’t wait to see the photos. This photo showcases “Turquoise” from my Magical Gems Palette.

If you are in the area, I hope you’ll plan to visit the market and join us for what promises to be both interesting and fun!
