Does this ever happen to you?
You're walking around HomeGoods
and you spot a pillow, or a lamp, or a rug...
something that sparks an idea
Soon, you're designing a whole room around this piece
except, it matches NOTHING in your house
and would involve a complete over-haul
I'm craving color in my life!
So I go home, empty handed, to ponder
But when I get home, I realize I really love my rooms
Yep, they are neutral and soft
and so, I do nothing...
until it happens again...and again.
Clearly, I'm drawn to color!
Today, I stopped in to a little shop to check out rugs for a client
and there, on the rug rack, ON SALE, was this:
Too bad it's got that yellow on it, I said to myself
The design is gorgeous, the grey is wonderful,
it even has the creamy white I want
I kept looking at rugs, and then I found this one:
It's pretty, but I don't love the black...
I kept going back to the yellow and grey one
Which of course, got me thinking!
Why not? My living room walls are pale grey,
my couch, chair, and ottoman are cream
everything else is either grey, cream, white, or wood
Some hits of yellow might be a refreshing change!
I can visualize a few new pillows with yellow in them
added to my already-too-many existing collection
I especially LOVE this idea...
I'd trade the burlap for softer linen
but it's cute and whimsical and perfect
I do love Cherry Blossoms
Maybe a bit of yellow here or there
by way of fresh flowers
I'm even pondering repainting this piece yellow!
Crazy or Genius?
That remains to be seen, I guess!
