Maria finds the most stunning images... and helps this color-phobe by feeding by brain about color. :-)

Because Maria's blog is so beautiful,informative and not at all condescending, because Maria is so darn adorable, and professional all at the same time, and she writes nice things on my blog, I vote for Maria's blog as one of my all time favourites.

I've learned more from Maria than from magazines or interior decorating classes. She not only knows her stuff but knows how to teach it well.
I now understand all about beiges and their understones, how to create tablescapes and how to create and test for colour flow - to name a few!
I love her blog and check each day to see if she has a new post and when she does I get a big smile!

I am always informed and inspired after reading Maria's blogs. Her's was one of the first I discovered and even though there are dozens of others now on my daily reading list, it is hers that I go-to first. - Karen H

Maria has that perfect balance of grace and knowledge and enjoys sharing both. As a fellow designer who specs Benjamin Moore I'm familiar with the palatte; I truly enjoy reading her perspective of color.

Maria is a fantastic blogger: fantastic blog content, very "down to earth" approach, she's always available to talk to you, answers when needed, replies comments... and one thing i find amazing when i read colour me happy is the energy, positive energy, she transmits in every post - and for me this is exactly what makes a very good blogger. Ah, another thing very very very important: she knows what she's talking about! She doesn't just edit photos, but uses them to illustrate her message - by this i mean she shares with all of us what she knows and that's again what blogging is all about.

Maria's blog is one of the most informative and colorful. I've learned more about color, its application and its effect on me in one year of reading her blog. I never want to miss a post because it's like attending a Color 101 class and beyond. In addition, Maria is generous, witty and inspiring.
