William made me this birthday card. Which room is the happiest?
Here I am, dressed for my Birthday dinner:
The two Snowflowering trees in my backyard are so special because they ALWAYS bloom on my birthday and the blooms are very short. Two weeks and it’s over!
They started blooming a week ago and the petals are already dropping!
The sun was setting last night and the light was so pretty, I snapped a few photos.
This is the shadiest spot in my garden in the summertime and where all my Hostas are planted (below). You can see the lamp in my North facing darkish bedroom is on all day long.
My Sisters and Mom sang Happy Birthday outside my bedroom window this morning at 6:30 am. I am so grateful to live so close to my family, going through these past few months of unprecedented times has been so much easier in our little pod.
For my birthday dinner, my Sister Elizabeth put out the Lava lamp because they’re back! And weren’t they from the 60s?
One of the best ways to celebrate my Birthday is just dinner with my Family! And my nephews made homemade birthday cards:
William (13) and Markus (11) | They are so big remember when they were this little?
Markus made me a pop up birthday card!
Love this modern table and chairs with a cake and balloons! Perfect card for a designer Auntie 🙂
William drew four rooms and asked me which one I liked the best:
My nephews know me so well, haha.
Elizabeth says her husband walks around and turns lamps off and William and Markus turn them back on again. They have heard my rant about lamps many times since I am obsessed.
And if you’re new to my blog you may have missed the post where I was accused of being a lamp swindler.
They are both excellent pillow fluffers as well. The boys tidied up the house before we arrived this evening and the pillows were perfectly placed by Markus:

And just like last year, please leave me a comment on the most transformative design/colour advice you’ve picked up from reading my blog. That would be the best birthday present!
It could be building your dream house, or renovating a kitchen or bathroom. Or your business experienced a transformation after you completed one of my colour workshops.
This is what makes writing Colour me Happy worth it!
All I ask is that you be specific, include actual numbers if that’s appropriate. Share your Story.
Thanks in advance — and here’s to the best year yet.
PS. Which room do you like best?
