Color Crave: The Dilemma

Somewhere along the road, I went from a girl who was desirous of a pink dining room, to a girl living in Neutral Land. It's ironic that the blue walls, which ultimately save me, are the very walls that I daydream about painting white...or light gray. To illustrate my angst with the overabundance of gray in my life, I've opted to strip the very word of the trendier spelling - grey - that I used to employ. I showed you, GRAY!

Very recently I woke up bleary-eyed from my beige-induced stupor and realized that I miss color. I crave it. It makes me happy.

I think it may have started with this.

Of course, as these things normally go, I didn't come to this epiphany until after I painted the old armoire black, and yes, I did so nearly two years ago, but it feels like yesterday and that's what matters.

I am thankful for my home and I truly do love most everything in it. It's got a look, that's for sure. I'm just not sure that the look reflects me - at least not at this stage of the game.

And perhaps it is true that I am currently wearing 1) blue jeans 2) gray tank top 3) black sweater, but I feel that this is really here nor there. ;)

The point is, I'm on mission to spice things up. I'm not buying anything new or researching paint swatches. I'm simply choosing to focus on the happy in a different sort of way.

I'm on a full-on color hunt. It's gotta be around here, somewhere.

This is a start, but I think I can do even better.

Stay tuned...
