Sherwin Williams does it, Benjamin Moore does it and so does Pantone. A few weeks back, Pantone released their 2017 Color of the Year, Greenery to an audience of color enthusiasts, interior and graphic designers alike.  

Before the color was announced, I must have been subconsciously channeling green. In a recent master bathroom update, I encouraged my clients to boldly paint their cabinets a deep green color (Sherwin Williams 6475 Country Squire). Not quite Greenery but wow, did it make an impact! 

The color Greenery reflects the global cultural climates and influences many faucets such as architecture/interior design, fashion, and even food. Greenery, is described as a yellow-green hue representing and signifying a new year, fresh start, grass, outdoors, environment  Oh, how we need one of those!

Could you see yourself using this color in your home, painted on your walls, cabinets or as pillow fabric for your sofa. Do you love this color and not sure how to use it? I’d be more than happy to show you how! Call or email us for a cheeky Green consultation! 

It’s 2017 and I am excited! Here at AJID, I have some big goals and changes in the works and all will be revealed in due time but first a huge thank you to all of my clients for allowing me the opportunity to collaborate with them, for those who have referred me to new clients and a quick shout out to all of those who have supported me and AJID along the way!

Robert Irwin Installation: Chinati Foundation

This month has been a busy one! Beyond interior designing, a passion of mine is supporting Austin in varrying philanthropic ways. There have been so many wonderful events that I attended such as:

Ballet Austin Fete-ish Gala supporting artistic programming, arts education.
New Milestones Foundation Gala, which raises awareness about mental illness and intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Meic-Arte Catrina Ball, which proceeds support the Mexic-Arte Museum’s Education and Outreach Programs and renowned exhibitions. The gala encouraged its attendees to dawn their best Dia De Los Muertos face.

 
Laura Villagram Johnson and Me

I finally got to check Marfa,Texas off my bucket list. The 2nd weekend of October was the 30th anniversary celebration of the Chinati Foundation. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious and the art was inspiring. Below is the simple and beautiful tent I got to sleep in at El Cosmico.
