I met a local designer/blogger shortly after writing this post who said, “I was so mad when I read your article because I had just finished painting my townhouse Cloud White from top to bottom”.
So let me say it again, I am not saying Cloud White is a bad colour, it simply should never be used as a go-to colour because there is no such thing as any colour that works in every situation. Will you use it 75% of the time? Yes.

This post examines the dilemma of choosing between painted cabinets or stained. (I actually think it’s better than ‘White Kitchen Cabinets’ but it barely made the top 10!).
And here are some posts that are simply my favourites:
When you first walk into your empty house [unless it’s brand new] this is what you see:
1) It’s dated.
2) None of it is or would have been your choice in the first place.
3) The colours are [generally] so bad it’s hard to see past them to how great it would look if just the right colours were on the wall. [click on the above link to read the article].
Happiness is. . . Being Uncomfortable [When you pick the wrong colour].
And one of the most important posts that everyone decorating or renovating should read:
When my installer handed me his invoice of $210.00 for an installation that lasted approximately 1 1/2 hours, I got to thinking; why is it that a home-owner seems to have no real issues with paying for labour? The painter, plumber, electrician, tile layer, carpenter, and so on.
But hiring the DESIGNER or COLOUR CONSULTANT-even if it’s just for a 2 hour consultation-to pull it all together, to make it all beautiful and fabulous, seems to fall into the category of LUXURY? [click on the headline to read the rest].
