magical makeover…

Today is laundry day…oh yeah…it’s Father’s Day too! I tend to be a rebel–at least that’s what my life coach tells me, but I think she’s wrong. So today, I say NO to laundry!!!! Instead, I thought I’d have some fun and do a lightening-quick makeover of a bedroom…you heard me…a makeover, baby!

I took a photo from Canadian House & Home Magazine‘s website, and gave it a little makeover. I added a little punch of yellow, threw on some of my Nicole Jane Home Bespoke cushions and changed the dreadful…er…challenged picture. Now, rather than saying “I want to be in a psych ward.”, I think it says “Hello world! Let’s jump on the bed!”

Hmmm…I had so much fun with this! I think I might just subject you to more of these makeovers!!!

sunshine yellow…

Ever since Nyla Free sent me a teaser of the design she’s cooking up for my living room, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the color yellow.

It could also have something to do with the fact that it just can’t stop raining in the Pacific Northwest, and I’m craving a little sunshine…correction…a truck-load of sunshine. So consider this my sundance…’cause I’m just not willing to go out and dance on my front lawn in the rain!!!

Don’t you just love that painting by Bobbi Burgers? She’s one of my FAVE artists.

yowsa yellow…

Have you noticed that when it’s sunny, I blog about happy colors? Just so happens it’s sunny here today, and I’m profiling “yellow”…the happiest color on the planet. And yes, I know I’ve talked about it before, but let’s do it again!

If you want to know a great color scheme to decorate with, this is it! Love it. Ranunculus rule (hey…I’m copyrighting that and having t-shirts printed up)!

This is from an exquisite hotel in the UK. I want to sit in that lobby ’cause that would mean I’m in London!!!! Was it wishful thinking that I thought the lamps were champagne bottles?

Love the ghost chairs with buttery yellow chairpads! I find the juxtaposition of antique hardwood and ultra-modern acrylic a scintillating combination (big words, eh?).

Such a pretty dress, such a pretty girl, but ding dangit she needs to smile because she’s in a yellow dress and she’s cute as a button!

These are the happiest shoes on the planet.
