Good bye beige...

Hello Ice Cube!!!

When we bought our home everything was beige. I mean everything! The walls the doors the cabinets, the carpet. Beige.



I had grand plans for color. Every room needed color. The kids rooms were the first to be painted.

Then we were pregnant, for years, and the painting was put on hold.
Now 8 years later I am finally painting, we finished the living room a couple months ago. Now my room, which doubles as my studio space is getting a face lift!
I have spent the last 2 month debating over colors. I had up to 6 samples on my wall at once, thinking that's too dark, I like that but it might be too much on every wall, that's too minty, and on and on.

I almost gave up and decided to settle figuring if I hate it I can always try again, but one last trip to Home Depot and I found my color!!!



It's light and beautiful in my space! Calming and inspiring with out feeling cold.

I can't wait to finish making over my space. Next come the shelves for my books, and beads and gems.
Then some art work for the walls.


I found this that I just LOVE and I am working with the artist to have a couple more made
One of St Joan of Arc and one of Our Lady of Lourdes.
The Artist is Flor Larios She has paintings of Angles and some of Jesus, and many of Mary. They are whimsical and heart felt and just lovely. Check out her shop!

I'll share the Journey of transforming my space as i continue to work on it :)

Hoping you find beauty in your day!
