I know i have been missing from my blog lately and i really appreciate all the emails i've gotten concerning my whereabouts. i have about 500 problems in my life to solve right now and all of a sudden it seems that life is just one BIG problem, but that is not true. i am blessed in many, many ways and so i am forcing myself to see all the good in my life TODAY.
so in that spirit...i'm focusing on the tiniest problem of all, adding color to my house.
After reading steve's recent post on adding a little bit of red to his living room i haven't been able to get it out of my mind. i have no idea why, but i will tell you that living in a black and white interior makes me crazy scared to add a third color.
whenever i do add color i cannot live with it for very long and out it goes.
red carnations do make me pretty happy
and they are a nice surprise in the laundry room
this red pillow is not bothering me at the moment.
and i'm hopelessly in love with this little vintage lantern
a little red pillow from ralph
how about you? does adding color scare you?
i myself waiver between loving a clean, spare look and riot of color, ala anna spiro
if you'd care to share your secrets with me, i'd love to hear them.
