Hope I'm not on your Black List!

Hi Guys!  Hope I'm not on your black list of dropped blogs. My apologies for being negligent. I don't know how you guys manage to work, have time for family, friends, etc. and write your posts.  Color me Ms. ADHD.  It is oh-so-hard for me to focus on more than one thing at a time.

Yep, Stager Linda is been a busy girl. Many unusual projects! I was asked to help on a Victorian Bedroom.  Do you have any idea how much I know about Victorian decor?  Can you say mucho research?  I tried to drag, drag, drag, Queen Victoria into 2013.  We managed to get a new bed treatment that made her Majesty happy. We are also working on recovering a settee to match.

I'm also working on this bedroom redo.  The owner's went on a trip to Italy and that is her inspiration.  She loves COLOR.  The paint color, bed treatment, bed side table and accessories shopping is ongoing.  I did find the grayish tuffed leather ottoman on Craigslist for $325.  We scored it for $290!
See the cool ottoman in the lower left?

I worked on accessorizing a bathroom renovation.  I guess I studied color for nothin'.  Everything was a go until the BB&Y (owner's coupons ya know!) shower curtain we purchased was deemed unacceptable. Mr. shower curtain was boring but it coordinated with the other accessories.   Pinky-beige marble was the bossy element in the bathroom and I tied to work with it.  My amigo went with a copper colored shower curtain. Pink and cooper--a most unusual color combo, indeed!

Here's a house I've just been hired to make exterior color choices.  The owner is NOT selling. They plan to stay here 'forever'.  His daughters 11 & 13 will have final say on the colors.  His daughters have in mind green and purple.  Non-negotiable.  Green and purple.

See the color choices under the windows before I was brought in?  I'm thinking sage green and aubergine. Do you have any idea how many sage colors exist?  Or that the purple-y pink colors on color charts don't match what I 'see' as aubergine?  Stager Linda may be marching into BM with an eggplant and saying 'match this!'

Interesting project, no?

Any ideas?  (I'm talking brands, numbers and names, folks!)


  1. Yes I am Patty! I'm used to selecting neutrals. This is going to be an interesting exterior paint project. I'm learning a lot researching!

  2. Ha....seems in the near future you will be the proud owner of said Copper Shower Curtain to use in your staging endeavors....seems EVERYONE agrees with you...I'm going back and getting the blingy one........Did your head just explode???? lol

    1. HA! HA! HA! Yes my head exploded! I think the blingy shower curtain is a worst offense than the Copper Shower Curtain!
