Oh sweet Lord, I didn't even make it through week one. For a married woman I lack a sense of commitment (to things like this! do not fret). However I am renewing my cause and from henceforth I shall tend to my 100 days like a farmer tends his crop, or his animals, but those usually have a more violent fate so I'll try to think of a better visual. Ooh a gardener! A lovely elderly woman in belted khakis, a button down, glorious gardening gloves, and a wide-brimmed, elegant straw hat. That woman, by the way, is who I aspire to be. There's a particular scene of an episode of Gilmore Girls (I'm only pretending I can't locate the specific one when really I could recite every episode by heart, to my dismay and delight) in which the grandmother, Emily, so demurely tends to her lilies or some such flower on a sunny day on the back patio. One day, Catherine, one day.
However, the intent of today is not to foretell of my old-age hobbies, but to discuss color, and discuss color we shall! To get back on track with my 100 days, seeing as I am five days behind (shameful), I generated FIVE random colors today to challenge myself and my interior design-educated mind to a game of interior colorway application. Is that the correct term? I'm certain it's not, but I'm going with it. Luckily, fate was on my side and graced me with five colors that I can actually work with (ass seen above) rather than a fire truck red, deep purple, and acidic green, in which case I might have dropped out of this entire endeavor altogether. So below, I offer you lots of pictures found in various corners of the internet that blends these colors together, not necessarily every color at a time, but you get the idea, I hope. Along with the colors I was given, I brought in some warm, rich browns that ground a lot of these rooms and concepts, as well as lots of florals for a subtle introduction to the beautiful green above. Not all of the colors below are exactly the colors above, but how often are our results an exact representation of our expectations? Here's to hoping that one day we all end up living in beautiful places surrounded by beautiful, whimsical things sitting in decadent yet classic chairs.
Verbally and colorfully yours,
