Decorator Show House progress

My assigned room within the Decorator Show House is progressing nicely.

With help from Scheer Painting Company (thanks Carolyn and Monica!), the room looks fabulous.

Benjamin Moore Aura paint used:

  • White Chocolate - a beautiful soft creamy white
  • Squish Squash - a cheery mellow yellow that pulls in the nearby bathroom tile color
  • Sweet Sixteen - a pretty elegant pink for the closet
Here are some photos:

This room will look great! Want to see it? Get tickets and open dates at

See you there!
