News as I See it:

Any tips would be greatly appreciated, as this is all new to me... (I hope to make my friend Regina Garay of Fauxology proud) She suggested months ago that I get on Twitter andI am finally making it happen.  Thanks Regina!

Tulsa 2011 Designer Showcase

Coast to Coast and then West to Oklahoma:
This past week, I travelled from Los Angeles to New York City and met with some very talented painters in LA and some top interior designers in NYC.  Just as my week of travel was beginning to tire me out,. I headed to Tulsa Oklahoma and spent a mind blowing day at a Sherwin-Williams sponsored Designer Showcase.  My exhaustion was replaced by inspiration and excitement.  I will give you a quick teaser and plan to do an entire feature story on this 30+ room showcase in my June article for Artisphere online.

The Showhouse was at the site of a rennovated, historic boutique hotel found on Rt. 66 in Tulsa. Take a look at the picture below at the original walls and the original "Fantasy Faux Finish" from 1928.  Pretty cool stuff done during Prohibition...

 1928!?

Sherwin-Williams, Faux Impressions Metalllics were custom blended to match the color and shimmer of designer, Susan Fielstras's beautiful fabrics.

Vince Mosley, Sherwin-Williams store manager and his staff worked with over 30 Interior Designers to make this extraordinary project come to life.

More on Vince and his team in Artisphere in June!


Also, I have a Big Announcement to make next week related to
Sherwin-Williams and IDAL!...
