Well, I'm back.  It has been quite the trip.  After spending Sunday through Wednesday at High Point, I then headed to Northern VA for a couple days to see some clients and tour the DC Green Designer Showhouse.  A week is a bit long to be apart from my family.  It was such a great trip though. 

First off, I'm doing my first Give Away and I think it is a pretty good one.  I attended Margaret Russell's book signing in High Point and grabbed an extra copy for one of my lucky readers to receive.

This is take 2.  We both had our eyes closed on the first one…shocker! Thank goodness she was patient and gracious enough to do a second take.  I think I need to get some lessons on how to pose for photos.  Do they do that somewhere?  I really really suck.

Style and Substance
 So what do you have to do to win?

There was one very consistent two color combination repeated in several showrooms.  In fact, I've never seen that much repetition in the last 7 Markets.  I'll publish all the pretty pics illustrating the combo at the conclusion of the give away.  The first person (designers traveling with me are excluded) to identify this two-color combo correctly by leaving the answer in my comment section will receive the book. 

Here is your clue.  I recently blogged about using these two colors together. 

Because the cover is Blue, I'm linking to Blue Mondays over at Smiling Sals.
