With all the negativity in the news these days I thought I would create something that speaks to beauty and love. And it is almost spring. A time to celebrate renewal and color!
I shot most of this video while walking my dogs around the neighborhood…it’s where I get lots of inspiration for color schemes! The spanish moss shot is from a recent trip to Savannah, and that soft, white, fluffy rug is from Home Goods. Honest Stephielou.
The short video is a twist on one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite movies this year, La La Land. Hope it inspires you to see the beauty around you.
They just blossomed last week.
You mist, water and wait. Then one day, you burst with joy when you see signs of life once again.
It’s worth all of the anticipation.
If I were a painter, I would try to paint this…
I think they are beautiful. Stripped or discarded.
They remind me of Cézanne and his paintings of fruit.
Happy Friday to you!
They may feel or look delicate, but it takes a strong will to withstand a winter storm.
If they could talk, they should say something like: “We’d like to see you spend your weekend out here, in the frigid ground, having ice, snow and blustery cold winds whip you around and around.” It’s not a walk in the park, people!”
Got to give those pansies some credit. They are tough!
But, as in life, not all who fight the brave battle, survive.
The cycle of life is anyone’s guess.
Rest in peace, fallen comrade. ❤
Decorating or design in a home isn’t just about making things pretty. It’s about creating that space that you connect to.
The place that makes you feel good. Peaceful. Home.
This family in Cary North Carolina reached out to me late this summer when they decided that they were ready to bring that sense of peace they loved in Hawaii to their home in North Carolina. It’s an ongoing project, but I’m impatient and just had to share how it’s going. I hope you will watch and get inspired. Is there a room in your place that could use a second look?
