Washington Post

Colour me Happy in the Washington Post

By 03/19/2009January 26th, 201733 Comments

It took 3 comments this morning for me to clue in that my blog was in Washington Post’s “Our picks to click this week”. 

That is very exciting!  My client Suzanne (whose apartment I featured) in the post “The right way to create flow using Colour” and I are about to be famous 🙂  Well in the blog world anyway!

    Fantastic News for both you and your client! So thoroughly deserved Maria, the amount of time and research you put into all your articles is always so appreciated. I love your ‘unique’ style and direction your blog has taken, every day I come here and check to see if you have posted any new articles or I just happily browse the older posts that you have written.
