i have always been repulsed by bright, cheery colors. call me pessimistic. well, until now. my choice colors were dark, rich tones like deep purples, maroons, golds and browns. i don't know what did it, but i prefer dark no more! i can't wait to get rid of all our dark furniture and have been BEGGING joel to let me paint our side tables and chest-of-drawers in our bedroom white. dark is just so drab and white is, well, bright. :) and oh so clean.
maybe its just the springtime getting to me, but my new favorite accent color is, surprisingly, YELLOW! never in my life have i been a fan of what i always considered an obnoxious color. but i have officially fallen in love. not that i plan to spaz out and paint all our furniture bright yellow, but when its paired with neutral colors like woodgrain, gray, cream or white, i LOVE it! i just like that its so bold and happy.
i bought a dress a few weeks ago that is yellow and white, and i can't wear it enough! i know its a big color to wear this summer paired with gray, and maybe that's why i'm so drawn to it (because i've seen it more than ever) regardless, here are some of my favorite yellow things that have encouraged this new sunshine passion of mine:
oh, and for those of you concerned, i have entered the "itching phase" of a bad sunburn. but, i do have to say that my sunburn of the century is healing quite nicely. peeling has been minimal and it surprisingly turned into a pretty nice tan. however, i put lotion on like its going out of style and find myself slipping in my shoes as i walk and my mouse at work slips out of my hand constantly. although, my skin has never been so soft! haha.
