Hello Lovely INC

Have you peeked inside the yummy book FARROW & BALL The Art of Color (Gibbs Smith)

It's a thing. of. beauty.

Author Brian Coleman and photographer Edward Addeo lead us on a tour of castles, cottages, lofts, and more to demonstrate how paint color and wallpaper work magic in a variety of spaces.

Don't miss the Farrow & Ball 'pale powder' and 'off white' kitchen on p. 138...the tile is to die for,
and I keep the book permanently open to this page!

Have a favorite go-to paint color you return to again and again

    Inspirational for interior designers/decorators

    I have been an interior designer for more that thirty years and this
    is one of the best books that I have ever purchased to peruse for my
    business. For anyone that is interested in redecorating their current
    or a new home this book is invaluable. I highly recommend it to
    professionals or just anyone for armchair reading.

    To Farrow

    You could join AquaClan. We are a kind and welcoming Clan. There are also two other queens there, who would love to meet you. Their names are Applethorn and Tigerpug. You can find AquaClan at "aqua" first result. The book is called "Attack of the Aqua Apes", and the nursery is in the fifth result, I think. I'm sure you'd be welcome. -Foxfur
