so back to the decor business. i have decided i am sick to deaaatthhhhh of red. i love the color still. i love seeing other people use it. i think it's a beautiful color. i was totally drawn to it for so long, and i think that's part of the reason i am tired of it. i am just ready for the red to be gone from my home. i realized it when i did my summer mantel change that i loved not having red around up there. i have also realized as i think more about who i am and my tastes that i have always been drawn to cool colors. i am talking like, in elementary school when my art teacher showed us a color wheel and i found out that there are opposites ends of the spectrum and all that, yah. since THEN i have liked cool colors. so that's when i said, "red. you are out of here. that's it. pack your things." okay what really happened was i went on a purge of the apartment and grabbed everything red and shoved it in a box in a closet. then i said, "aahhhhh.." : ) what a sigh of relief! so now i am in bring-color-into-my-living-space mode. which is unfortunate because that mode and don't-spend-any-money mode don't get along so well... but they are trying. we shall see what they come up with : )
here is the progress i have made so far in our guest bath.
it feels so much better on my eyes! it's weird but true. all i have spent so far is $15 for the white rug. next i am going to paint in there, add some artwork and i have a project in mind for a new shower curtain. it's amazing how just a few changes really make a difference. this red totally doesn't even stand a chance. : )
by the way, i am not sure of the count but i think this may be the most smiley faces i have ever used in a post. i may or may not be happy, it's difficult to say...geesh.
also i realized i may not be really de-red-ifying. i might need to call it white-ifying. hmm..
and for good measure: : )
