Yellow & Gray

July 7, 2015

The combination of sunny yellow and subtle urbane gray continues to be a favorite of mine. In a blog here, I looked at these hues as contrasts, distinctive and specific with yellow (Dijon) as an accent for home decor and accessories. Suddenly, these hues look completely different to me, a bit softer, more subtle and a little less intense.  The…


Attachments, Things in my Office

June 26, 2015

This is it!! All the files, books and client records have been neatly packed labeled and archived. Just a few left for today. I personally have gone through everything and along the way have come across things that I absolutely love creatively, emotionally, or “just like it”. I’m simply attached to them. You know? I’m sure you have things in…


The office Move, what’s Next?

June 23, 2015

A few months ago I decided not to take on additional clients and concentrate on what I really want to do in my life and vocation.

So, when I started this new category “Project Peek” my thought was to post occasionally a  project I was working on or had recently completed. Just a snippet. These posts are a good…


Blogging “Blockhead”

June 15, 2015

This “Blog Blockhead” as I fondly call it has been plaguing me since I relaunched Hues and Cues in April. An editorial calendar is in order and fast! This simple tool keeps me motivated and focused. So, why haven’t I done it already? Well, It’s quite the task to re-assess and re-work the 400+ blogs and essays I’ve written (since…

June 14, 2015

It’s almost Fathers day and don’t our handsome gents deserve a day to chill? Absolutely! Last year, here, I took a whole different approach to my ultimate gift guide for dad.

May 22, 2015

This weekend is the official kick off to summer. Each year we all look forward to relaxing, taking the day off and sharing a BBQ, sometimes the first of the season, with our friends, family and neighbors.
