I've been so busy lately and it's only going to get worse with the new full time job I start in a couple of weeks. It's pretty impossible to go to grad school, work full time, sell jewelry part time, have kids at home still AND pursue any of my other interests. I have far less time for books, movies, projects, vacations, photography or pretty much anything else I am interested in doing. This blog is one of the things that is going to suffer while I'm so busy. I just don't have as much time to update it as I used to - even though I still routinely think of ideas that I want to blog.
This particular blog is an indicator of where I am at in my life right now. I'm in the process of re-doing a couple of rooms in my house (give me a break on what "process" means, this process is slooooow - more in the thinking and dreaming stage than the doing, but give me to the end of the summer and I think I'll have something to show you in a blog...I digress) - and in this process I find that I am drawn to calm, soothing, restful spaces.
This doesn't necessarily mean neutrals to me (I know it often does for other people). But more muted, more whites and blues and greens. That is restful to me.
I'm drawing inspiration from some of these rooms. Cooler colors like blues and greens tend to be restful for most people. You will almost never go to a therapists office and see orange or red anywhere. I love orange and red, but they are not restful or calm colors.
Lately I've been thinking about how fun it might be to decorate an office someday. Of course, that's a long ways off. But it's still fun to think about. I'm sure any future office will rely heavily on these types of inspiration as well:
It's funny some people don't think so - but what we surround ourselves with - what our homes look like - it really does affect us. So if you're not feeling so happy lately - think about making a change in your space. It might help!
