Is there something in the air? Well there sure is around here; the pollen is so thick that floats by like some fantastically weird desert or snow storm. Yellow, yellow, everywhere - I could brush off the deck furniture four times a day and have no impact...
But more than that, I feel myself attracted more and more to only those things and those people who fill me up with their good energy. They literally and figuratively lighten my load and I love it!
This is being reflected in my house, funny enough. For years, I was attracted to only deep, rich hues. I think I have gone through nearly every colour of gold in Benjamin Moore's colour palette - now I find myself hopelessly in love with pale greens, pale blues, whites and creams.
You would be forgiven for blaming this on the coral abomination, but that would not be accurate.
In fact, it began a few months ago in this bathtub:
Because as I lay soaking in the tub, I realized that it has been ten years since we had reno-ed the bathroom and I still LOVED it.
Just like I still love my kitchen:
And the newly-lightened-up family room
and laundry room:
and Parisian loo:
I felt calm with this colour palette offsetting all of our antiques and things I have collected over the years. And I didn't grow tired of the colours.
So I am lightening up, and more pictures soon, as our painter is coming to paint our dining room and hallway, because I am a rotten painter and Barry has been flat out installing a new front door:
|definitely a BEFORE picture!|
While I wait, I am lightening the bed for the season....
And these cushions are waiting for the pale walls so they can really pop!
Hmm, now if I could only lighten Wendy...
Ah well, we do what we can...
Have a great day and stay safe out there!
