Add a touch of Spring…

13 Apr

>Spring time can do some funny things to people, it makes me go into a full speed ahead cleaning and redecorating frenzy. All of this energy must be a direct result of the cabin fever I get in the winter. None, the less. I go above and beyond your “normal” spring clean. My interior design bone craves paint and color.
So here you go, a spring has sprung in bold, crisp, clean, refreshing colors.
Our living room was a drab, “buy this house, neutral” I had to clean it up, give it some life. I went with rainwater customized to the point of no return by Sherwin Williams.

Now, onward to the place where all the cooking goes down…
The Kitchen. When we bought the house it was already a yellow color, a little brighter than I would choose so I took it up a notch to this smoother, a tad lighter, creamier yellow, BUT I didn’t want to be overwhelmed with sunshine so I added a little character, Purple…eggplant-ish. The purple really adds that extra oomph I needed. It helps the things on the wall to stand out annnnd it looks fab with yellow and red!

I needed to add color to my bed as well so, I purposes some pillows with new, brighter fabrics.
