YOUNG HOUSE LOVE’S RICHMOND HOMEARAMA SHOWHOUSE IS OPEN!

I was so honored and flattered when my friends John and Sherry asked me if I would paint a portrait of their beloved little pooch BURGER…as a  cheeky nod to their adorable little Chihuahua. The “BURGER”   (remember the “KRAMER” from Seinfeld) figures prominently in the Living room decor. It sits above the fireplace where a television will eventually live.

I have used HALE NAVY a great deal…in my art work and other projects. It is a deep navy…which goes in the direction ever so very slightly towards green than purple if you know what I mean….and so far I have found few colors which do not soar in the presence of NAVY…think about it…

NAVY is a one of my favorite colors to decorate with…I  am even a tad obsessed with it…and in my experience…a LITTLE goes a LONG way…I tend toward using navy as an ACCENT or as a pop of color, or like John and Sherry did here to offset other colors, help ART WORK shine or direct focus towards a spectacular piece of furniture…like Phoebe’s twin beds…
