Spotlight: Debby Gies

Debby Gies

The authors’ community is a great one, I found a lot of support and vivid communications. These are people who write, their words flow like the waters of a river. I discovered so many new books and have met so many fine writers, one of which is author Debby Gies Canadian born.

Debby is a non-fiction author/memoir writer who adopted the pen name of D.G.Kaye. She writes about her life experiences, matters of the heart, and women issues.
At the question of why I write, she says: “I love to write to tell stories that have lessons in them and hope to empowers others by sharing my own experiences. I write raw and honest, hoping that others can relate and find that we always have a choice to move from a negative space to a positive one. We need only the courage to take the leap.”

My six books

Debby Gies –  Six books

She describes herself as optimistic, funny, worry-wart. Of course, she was born under a Gemini sign, forever young at heart.
Visit her website:
her social platforms Twitter , Facebook, Linkedin, and her award page.

She is participating in my new book launch and as a token of my gratitude, she is receiving color information regarding her zodiac sign: Gemini.



Debby is a true Gemini – May 22 to June 21.  For her, I want to make up a living room in her colors. Gemini’s main color is Yellow. She lives in Toronto, I am sure she can use some yellow to brighten the grey, snowy days of Canada. There’s nothing better to cure the cold winter blues than the cheerful yellow.

Her lucky number is five and it is a protective number. it’s advisable to spread the color yellow in five ways, or in five rooms throughout her house by using yellow accessories, yellow curtains, yellow tone lights, yellow linens, yellow bath towel, and yellow flowers.

Yellow is the color of the naval chakra located in the stomach area, but our stomach is directly connected with the brain, with our intelligence and the power of setting goals. In fact, the stomach is called the “second brain”. Yellow is the color to use for manifesting something new, one wishes to happen. The yellow I want to use in her living room will be paired with bright blue, green and geometric patterns, perhaps I will accent the room with Pink, White, or Red.

My concept for her living room made of modern pieces, mixed with neo-classic and Victorian-style came out intentionally imperfect because I see Debby as a person who likes mutability and changes. I have seen her home style in a couple of photos, she appears to be a traditionalist, thus she might like a little stirring up in a different style.

Yellow Over Chestmut

Yellow Over Chestnut

I started with a reclaimed chestnut hardwood floor because bright brown is suiting to a Gemini character, it grounds the person born under this sign and it is a warm element for Canada weather. I see a modern velvet or ultra suede blue sofa with pink and yellow pillows. I envision a seating arrangement with yellow chairs of different styles. In my photo, I have included one neo-classic chair and one Victorian-style chair, however many different styles can be possible, as long as the pairing is done tastefully. The white color will balance the room, such as ceramic vases, in fact, the example vases I found can easily go from the aquarium to the hallway. White fresh flowers will balance the room as well, not just any white flowers, lily of the valley is the Gemini’s lucky flower. The variety of whimsical lamps will add a touch of originality to the room and a lot of character. Finish the room with many green plants with long foliage. I hope Debby will like it.

Now, allow me a bit of shameless promotion for my new book release of ©RED – A Voyage Into Colors – Second Edition . It happened only a few days ago and a lot of fine authors or artists are helping to take the book on tour.

    What a lovely post Valentina. I’m fascinated by the zodiac but must confess that I don’t know any Geminis apart from Debby.

    What a cool post and selection of colors, materials, and styles for Debby. It seems high energy and, yes, mutable, and a perfect match to her personality. That was fun.

    As a fellow Geminian, I was interested to read what you had to say about Debby. My initial response was that I’m not really into yellow. Brighter lighter blues are my favourite and then other colours on the blue side of the spectrum. But then I thought about my yellow wall in the kitchen/family room and my yellow sofas. My cork floors seem to have that similar brightness as those you chose for Debby. Interesting. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for the work you put into this beautiful gratitude post Valentina. I for one am grateful. 🙂 You almost have me nailed, lol. Yes, I could definitely use some yellow in our grey skies now! And I found it so interesting that yellow is the color of naval chakra. My stomach id definitely the gateway to my worries and thoughts, and also the place where I get my intuitive messages – sending to my brain. As a Gemini, I welcome change. And for my furnishings, I’m an eclectic mix of traditional and whimsical. Thank you so much! ❤
