This is the entrance of the Hudson Hotel in New York! Notice, there is no sign on the front!

Here is the escalator going up to the hotel. The lighting in this hotel is extraordinary! You must check it out if you love lighting. It reminds me of The Matrix!
This morning we had breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien. It’s a very cool Belgian inspired-communal-table-place to eat. The food is wonderful!
Looking up at the colourful quilt-like tapestries (and because we were at the table talking about colour and design), I was reminded about the way I used to specify colour!
I used to think I wasn’t doing my job unless the house looked like that quilt!
I think because a Colour Expert has ‘colour’ in their job description, more than one of us think it’s all about saturated colour when really our job is fundamentally about selecting the perfect colour which sometimes means the perfect neutral. Strong colour throughout any interior needs colourful furniture and artwork to really pull it off so every space needs the right mix of both!
This is the entrance to the kitchen inside the restaurant!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Need help choosing the right neutral or colour? My How to Choose Paint Colours: It’s all in the Undertones ebook takes the hundreds of choices down to 9 neutral undertones along with list of all my other go-to best grays, broken down into 3 undertones, green, blue and purple. The beige undertones of pink, yellow, green, gold, orange and taupe along with the best greens and blues.
My bonus book of colours is worth the price of the ebook alone but you will also get my system of understanding undertones so you can stop making mistakes when sourcing tile, carpet, countertops, etc.
