A few people laughed that I removed all color from “a color website”, lol. But I wanted to let photos do the talking. I hope you enjoy the new look. Feel free to send feedback if there’s information you would like added. Check out our portfolio and accolade pages, we added a few things. More to come!
I can’t tell you how good it feels when all medias are in order. Now we can focus on you.
2016 was an exciting year for Color Zen. Remodeling and building are so abundant in Milwaukee, contractors and designers are in high demand. Wow, have we been busy. Feeling like 2017 might be a continuation of this momentum…
Some design highlights from the past year- Louisville Homearama! My MIL invited us to visit so we could escape to this show together. 25 new construction homes, designed within strict “southern living” guidelines. Fully decorated by local designers. All of the photos in this post are from the show.
I annoyed all passers-by with incessant photo snapping. If these were quick shots walking through- can you imagine? I’ve never seen anything like it. Every detail perfection. Simply stunning taste level throughout. A fantastic day.
Seriously filled up my inspiration tank for the next several years. Especially kitchen and bath design ideas. Tile, lighting, hardware, moldings, wood floor colors and textures, amazing… The Joanna Gaines aesthetic reigned.
In my own work, here are recent observations. We’re in transition from the all gray look with colors all over the board. I happen to be specifying blue paint colors a lot. Powder, gray/blue, navy. Another point- metal and wood finishes are being mixed in abundance which can be confusing. A designer can definitely help you balance everything properly. Also, light fixtures have become a huge focal point. I can’t even tell you how many Google searches I’ve done for “light fixture 22″ and larger” over the past year. Proportions in general have tripled over the past decade.
I look forward to sharing frequent posts, now that we’re all cleaned up for 2017. 8 years and growing- hard to believe. We were awarded Best of Houzz 2017 last week (visit our profile). Thank you all for being part of this labor of love.
