School's Out for Summer! This day calls for YELLOW!
Yellow screams for attention. Obviously yellow is energizing and happy, but did you know that too much of it as a dominate color can make you irritable? And it is not actually a good kitchen color because it can make couples fight? And painting a child's room yellow can make them crazy?
My room was yellow when I was a child. That explains so much.
Regardless, I am a fan. You can't help but smile. But either use just some "pops" or use a lighter yellow, please! These beautiful spaces show really wonderful balance. A little goes a long way.

It has been a wild and crazy rollercoaster the past few weeks. School is over for the students, and I am packing up my classroom. Yep. It's kind of bittersweet, with the possibility of not coming back, but I am uber- pumped about what my life has in store for me! Without my computer (Uggg!!), it has been hard to become inspired to post lately. I think there is just so much I can show what I am liking from the internet or from pictures on my computer at work!
But.. there are a few things making me happy this week. (Other than my upcoming summer!)
This book is better than Xanax.
It is Design Crack
and Hilariously Smart.
Adler's crazy style can always
pull me out of a funk.
Don't you love it?!?!?
I would put this in my dressing room.
Sad Week: Our pretty red computer is sick and is (hopefully!) going to the doctor today. It seems to be working, but we see nothing on the screen! So, no personal pictures for me. I would love to show off my ginormous hydrangea. And my new curtains in the dining room. Sorry.
Moving on. I will, though, show these great pillows I found on Ebay! I love an Ikat, even though it is done to death. I am trying to decide if a set should replace my hibiscus pillows on my living room sofa.
Plus: A To-Do list for my dining room. *Lower my chandelier (or get a new one!) *Find a new base for my silver chest *Decide on hanging plates or brackets on either side of the window *Find a large floor vase (does that make sense?) *Frame new artwork to flank the mirror
If I type it, I have to do it.. right?!
I hope everyone has a fabulous day! Nick has today off, so I am already thinking about what he will cook for dinner. Yum.
