I really go for a deep saffron or marigold yellow......it makes my soul shiny. and i need that!!!


This first room just drives home the notion that YELLOW can be KING
in the right setting.
Right?



Now my living room is painted the honeysuckle rose color.
Art, antiques seem to feel very much at home with it. 

If only I really knew more history about the history of colors/
Where shall I go?

  1. Love these colors, Renee. There is an app for the House Beautiful 500 Colors. I love it!
    I am amazed at how much yellow is in the room and it doesn't look too yellow. Beautiful! I love the honeysuckle too. I may try that.

  3. Yellow is one of the colours that I had problems with, because the shade of yellow tended to turn out so bright yellow, until I found the right buttercup yellow which had less white in it, so in bright sunlight here in California it doesnt shock you when you walk in the room.

  5. It looks like there are some good leads here!I love pops of yellow.

    Also throughout history certain colors had definite connotations.
    EX: Purple was considered a color for royalty, high class, quality, etc.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
