good morning! it was fun putting a blue story together yesterday and i wanted to challenge myself with a color today that i’d normally never use in decorating: hot pink.

a

(outdoor-spaces) but as they say, never say never! i’m falling in love with the creative ways people have been using now, in the past and in nature.

i guess it always seemed a little brash but once mother nature puts her stamp on it, it suddenly makes sense.

california maybe?but then, if you have a front door, why not play with it every year…or even season? it’s about the quickest way to change the look and feel of a house.

as for the color itself, it fits in just about anywhere and can set a different tone in each room.

hello and happy sunday guys! hope you’re winding down a great weekend. it’s been a day of rest around here and that was both needed, good and lazy. best of all i had time to surf and started looking through the day’s loot. you never know what you collected till the end of the session and see it all together.

the art of life

bonjour tout le monde! what’s happening in your universe? i hope your day was good and productive and that spring is in the air teasing you.  i had big plans to post tonight but came across this shot that i love on so many levels and had to just post it alone. i like the idea of taking a masterpiece and enlarging it to this extent. to live with such color, magnificence and grandeur by just covering one wall. and your room can be a mess and still look great! well i’m cutting out. early to bed c’est soir, can’t wait. bonne nuit!
