designing spaces | very green door

Whether it’s designing a space or an event, if you know jofa12 you know we like to keep the foundation neutral, adding pops of color in significant places. A cream sofa with an orange pillow. A light gray bedspread with a yellow throw. A weathered brown tray with a bright blue tea cup. When my son first walked into our freshly painted white shop, he protested. “Mom, it’s an artist shop. It should be colorful.” I instructed him to come in and turn around. That’s when he saw the very green door. “Very cool.” He smiled. And I smiled too. Because why do we care what they think? But we do.    (Sherwin Williams Nervy Hue 6917)

designing spaces | a place to create

People are surprised when they walk into my shop. While my home reflects a somewhat neutral and minimalistic style, my shop is a showcase of organized clutter. Everything I love… painting, writing, photography, creating, designing… it’s evident in the happy chaos of items that inspire me and make me smile every day… in my shop with the very green door.
