I’ve been doing quite a bit of painting lately…for my Giggle creations, in my home, and as I posted on Monday…just about anything I can get my hands on! My color of choice these days–white! Each spring I love to purge my home of unnecessary clutter, a popular time of year to clean & organize. But this year I also wanted to lighten and refresh my indoor spaces and there’s no better color than white to make things seem clean and bright! I’ve learned over the years that for me, neutral colors work best for my walls and upholstery pieces…even though I am a sucker for color and pattern! It takes great restraint on occasion when shopping for furniture or choosing paint colors since I usually gravitate toward choices far from neutral! But I can keep my passion for patterns and ever changing color loves alive in my home when I purchase pillows, artwork, rugs, and accessories. These things can often be inexpensive so I can swap them out when I feel the need for change! So the latest room in need of something fresh happened to be our bedroom. I sometimes feel like the bedroom is one of the last rooms I spend time on. I suppose that’s because nobody really sees it but us! And like many families, our bedroom is an accumulation of hand-me-down furniture and mismatched pieces that we love…but don’t really go together! I had already painted some of our bedroom furniture to help remedy that situation but I wasn’t completely satisfied with the room as a whole. I was ready for an update and the easiest way to do it was to paint the walls…and sticking to my personal lessons learned, I chose white! See the simple ways I updated our space just by painting, a little organizing, and keeping things I love near!
bright mornings = good mornings!
