I actually saw that episode. How Funny. I was reading your post thinking that I saw an episode of that show. I clicked on your links and the I saw it. You have the greatest pad. I wished that the HGTV web page had more pictures ofthe pink vs. green color combo.

Thank you for all of the lovely compliments!  Sorry, it's taken me a while to respond but I do have exciting news.  Two weeks ago, the Japanese fashion magazine anan was here and took photos of my apartment for an upcoming article entitled, "Places I Want to Live!"  I believe the issue will come out in September and feature apartments in Paris and New York.  I'm thrilled to be included and have such fun publicity abroad...hopefully they will mention my craft books too!

As for your questions and comments,

thumbkin - The color is called Season's Promise (# 38-D) from Ace Hardware Paints however I upgraded to a Benjamin Moore eggshell mix for durability (hue stayed exactly the same).

jmesdiylounge - The photos from anan will definitely show just how pink and green my apartment really is.  Although the magazine will only be available in Japan, they will send me a copy so I will update in September!

Keep on sparklin'!

Do you know if they will air this episode again? I'm sorry I missed it! The pictures look lovely.

Do you ever get tired of the colors you chose? Do you redecorate, or tend to keep it the way it is?

I am watching it right now, must be a third re-run, and I remembered reading your post a long time ago.  So I had to search craftster for it!

I LOVE your apartment.  I wish my place looked like that, my two girls would be in heaven!  unfortunatley I think my husband would not be so happy. 

I want to dust with a feather duster and tiara too.  Tomorrow me and my girls are going out to find dusters and tiara's for each of us!

Hi!  Back with updated pics...this time from the Japanese fashion magazine anan (see initial post).  Thanks again for all of your uplifting compliments.  Here are answers to your questions and comments:

A Modern Mantra:  I'm not sure if they will air the episode again but you can always request it if you have HGTV on Demand.  As for the colors, no I really don't get tired of the bright palette however I do get frustrated with all of the ideas I'm not able to pursue due to lack of space and time!  This is something I think most craftsters can relate to though!

Kikigirl:  Thanks for checking out my website.  So happy you enjoyed it!

Michelle Giordano:  I bet you saw it on HGTV Canada.  They have a different schedule than in the US.  I can only imagine how cute you and your girls must look with sparkly tiaras and feather dusters!

Yes, HGTV Canada.  Gotta Love it.  Sometimes I wake up early just so I can watch it before the cartoons have to be watched.
