It’s that time of year, Thanksgiving. It’s time to reflect on the year, our lives and acknowledge what we’re thankful for.
As I briefly mentioned in the previous post, I said that I “have a secret” and I’d like to share that with you in this post. It’s been an incredible year and one of extreme change. Come read about my newest journey.
And yes it has to do with color so please stop by on Sunday when I post about a very colorful adventure!
It’s getting to be that time of year where we or at least I, start getting excited to see the colors that will popular for 2015. I just came a blog post in my WordPress reader and saw a post for PPG The Voice of Color and clicked on the link to their color trends and was pleasantly surprised. I saw colors I actually like and have been posting about!
The average home here in South Charlotte is about 3,500 square feet. These homes have about 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, the usual kitchen, living room, dining room, office or flex room and a bonus or playroom. If you break these rooms down into “spaces that need color” you’re looking at about 14 or so colors. That’s a lot of rooms/spaces to consider for color and it’s very typical that most of my clients wind up with at least 10 colors for their home.
Now this sounds like a lot of paint to purchase but keep in mind, color is what will define the space in your home. Color gives a home interest instead of using just one color throughout and just makes it pretty darn beautiful.
So lately I’ve been talking a lot about Back-to-Baics. I think after a while all the hustle and bustle of everyday life really takes a toll on both mind and spirit.
One day, and it’ doesn’t have to be when you hit rock bottom, it can just be an “ah ha” moment you’ll come to realize that getting back to basics is a healthy choice and just feels good. It’s the direction I’m going in both in life and career.
Colors are getting more natural (good-bye turquoise) design elements are simplified and the need to go-go-go and do-do-do is just taken down a few notches.
Anyway, the point of all this is that today I’m sending my Mom a letter, you know the old fashioned way with a stamp? No email, no Google docs, no faxing, FaceTime or Skyping and you can bet your bottom dollar that letter will be more than just a letter. It will be love in an envelope to her!
Take 10 minutes out of your busy day today and send someone a letter in the mail. It will bring a smile to their face for sure!
