Phoebe Howard




I could spend hours sifting through the portfolio of Phoebe Howard. It seems every time I get drawn into her dreamy world I discover something new. I recently read a Q&A in the Washington Post where Phoebe talked about her design philosophies. A hallmark of her style is the use of color in a monochromatic way. Even if the colors are vibrant, when you limit color contrast, it brings a sense of calm, order and serenity to a room. She even shared some of her favorite paint colors: Benjamin Moore's Glass Slipper (one of my favorites too), Healing Aloe, Vale Mist, Cream Fleece, and Winter Wheat. If you're a fan, I'd definitely check the article out here. And to see more of this blue beach home, head right here!
