I Love Framing!

Just as I was starting to become disillusioned and afraid this house would NEVER get built, along came the framers! If you ever want to feel like you are making progress in this world, get something framed up. In a matter of days—sometimes even hours—a whole building materializes in front of your eyes!

Starting Blue and Getting Bluer

From the photo here, I bet you think I’m going to talk about cost overruns. Well, I COULD, but I’m not. Not in this post anyway. No, I’m talking about a blue of another hue…

I’m getting the sense that the color blue is really making a comeback. I haven’t been this excited about blue—in all its permutations—since I was a kid getting to pick out my own paint color for my room (a lovely Alice blue by the way). Suddenly I’m obsessed with blue—soft and ethereal Nordic blue, deep and smoky blue-black, funky turquoise, and a lovely medium greyish blue referred to as “Titian blue” in a recent House Beautiful article.
