You can change your dressers handles and turn them into gold.

Anyone that can turn anything into gold is called an alchemist, but King Midas also had the golden touch and so do you my lovelies.

Bring colour and music in your life

It is said that colour has soul, Isaac Newton thought that colour can be musical. There is seven colours in a rainbow and there is seven notes in a scale.

Robin egg blue is soft and gentle.

If you want to know a little more about the correlation between colour and music, you can go to I am afraid it will get to scientific for me, my attention span is like a hummingbird today, but it is an interesting theory.

Today we will explore some of the blues.

Today’s idea, playing with your blues

I am a lover of white and blues, so I was very pleased to find out that the HomeSense 2016 spring collection has a lot to offer in the white and blues.


Somehow, a touch of green looks great in this white and blue bedroom.


Adding a bit of nature with this Ficus tree is a warmer upper in this white and blue corner.


A printed blue and white rug, pillow shams and cushions are small details that completes your white and blue room.


A special touch with a Moroccan style candle.


White and blue love anything natural, this natural wooden base lamp is ideal.


A natural wicker tray can be used as a decorative object on the wall or simply as a tray.


A white and blue throw is so comfy, I use mine to watch TV at night, remembrance from nights past.

There is blue and there is turquoise blue and they amazingly look charming together.

Sometimes just a touch of blue like this white and blue rug can really bring a nautical look to a room, when we say nautical we always see blue and white, which is quite calming and of course  better than seeing red.

Today’s idea, White paint and warm ambiance at the Ritz

I like warm whites, creamy whites and tainted whites even in the winter.

Ritz-10 - Copie

When I decorate with white, I like a play on whites. There is no natural light in the hallway, so I used OC88 (Indian White) by Benjamin Moore, I have to admit that Benjamin Moore has the most beautiful whites in a multitude of tones.

Ritz-11 - Copie

I cheated a bit with the mouldings and ceiling at the Ritz instead of  a warm white,  OC62 (Baby’s breath) was used which is more of a grayish cool white by Benjamin Moore but the exception makes the rule sometimes. It is said that if you use warm whites on your walls it is better to choose a creamy warm white on your mouldings and doors.

Ritz-20 duplicate

In the living room the only place where I added a touch of white was above the fire-place OC88 BM (Indian White) again, I felt that the antique like mirror would like white better and it brings some luminosity to the darkness of its wood. The walls are CC150 (Sandy Brown), it is a very bright room and it needed a bit of color.

Ritz-17 copy

As the kitchen opens up to the hallway, I needed to create some continuity between the two rooms. I looked at my OC88 (Indian White) chip in the kitchen and I knew that it would look slightly lighter than in the hallway as It is a very sunny room. I liked this idea as it was the same but appeared different.  Light certainly plays game on colors, so make sure you look at your color chip in the room that you will be using it.


The breakfast nook is also OC88 and you can see the difference between the pure white of  the cabinets and the tainted Indian white of the wall.

Ritz-4 - Copie - Copie

In the Master bedroom I went with OC2 Pale Almond which appears a little lighter because of the brightness of the room. I found it more appealing and enveloping than a pure cooler white.


The antechamber of the Master bedroom used as a small office is OC2 (Pale Almond), here the color looks a little darker as it does not benefit from direct light like the Master bedroom.


The guess bedroom is OC8 (Elephant Tusk) BM which of course is another creamy white. Thus the expression play on whites.

 I find that Whites are a bit complex, and of course when I am in the process of choosing my white colors, my painters think that I am absolutely off my rockers, for them white is white and that is it, but actually white is not white and you will find out that the 100 shades of white can look quite different from one room to another.
