Come to think of it I never liked roses. of any color. never appreciated their delicate scent or shape…didn’t even want to draw them.
Maybe because everyone I knew painted them…looked too easy…everyone I knew liked rose smelling perfumes…or rose color of anything.
But now…now I changed my mind…maybe because I have roses finally growing in my garden…and I’m able to watch them open up each day…washed with morning sun…their delicate smell…light hint of pink is just so right.
Not that I’m crazy about roses now or pink color…but I love the clues and possibilities this color offers…clues of hues that can be found in a can of almost white paint…it has a sheer hint of pink…a color that at night with mood lights turns into a light taupe hue. I call it a vague color…and I rolled it on my living room walls.
enjoy images of clues and hues
Roses are unique…I can’t believe I’m saying this…but it’s true…in my close observation I found the flower to be symmetrical and its numerous petals are distributed evenly, almost to a perfect circle…and the texture is super velvety.
o.k. it’s not a rose but still…pink.
my reading corner has light color pink walls
My reading corner has a chair I just reupholstered…will write a post about this diy. You have to see it to believe it!
Seriously now, what girl doesn’t like pink? any pink? do you have a pink story you’d like to share? can a girl grow out of pink? yes? no? my youngest daughter…maybe…but that doesn’t count. I know some men who like pink…my dad included…I think my husband too…but I don’t think he knows that yet.
In the meantime,

“Dress me slowly, for i am in a great rush.”
That’s what I feel when I take too many projects at once…trying to accomplish them in a very short amount of time…among other responsibilities i have…like I’m a super woman.
Let’s see…in the past 3 weeks i took over too many make-overs: guest bedroom, the hallway on the second floor, our TV room, powder room, dining room, reupholstered two chairs, my husband’s closet, my closet and last but not least…yesterday I finished painting my living room…the kind of room that no one sits in… and takes a big chunk of the first floor space (shame).
It has 19…yes! 19′ ceiling and i painted it using a latter and a very long pole…no one helped…you may think whatever you like.
…and hung back the curtains on these 19′ ceiling walls! how? don’t ask…
Not to mention office work and the usual stuff around the house…but it’s the thrill people, the thrill that keeps me going…seeing how projects are progressing, rooms transforming, moods are changing….ha.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise as to why i feel like there is a “hole” in my back lately…
How did i stay focused?…again, don’t ask…
So I decided to give myself some flowers.
I will post here pictures of the projects soon…promise.
And since I’m already in a mode of changing things around the house, it motivates me to redo my own bedroom (like i don’t have enough already). It’s a big room with lots of windows which means lots of window treatments and a good three coats of paint to cover a dark pink wall…must be done by the end of next week…before passover…we’ll see you then.
Did i also mention that at the same time I’m also working on my backyard makeover? i have help for that one but…that’s another post.
This is my bedroom now:
Don’t think my room needs a makeover…but the other voice in me, the one that says “do as i say or else” makes me do it…bad voice…bad bad voice.
hmm…it’s a beautiful room don’t you think…when my friends come over they are like “wow…beautiful…never thought of these colors…can you design my room too?”…
so why am i doing it again?
wait…don’t rush to answer…
Seriously now… it’s only because i love creating…it takes a lot of work and sometimes physical effort but anything that requires creativity…i take it all in and give myself all to it.
Thinking about my bedroom redo brings these inspiring images to mind:
i love how this beautiful jewelry display makes me want to wear my own…even when i’m home
love the blues in these jewels…and all the light color accents around it…reminds me of my mother’s jewelry box…oh my own boudoir…
little fresh flowers by my bed…every day…
i discovered the beauty of these cushion pum yellow fleur…how they open up to you…unconditionally…in a cheery color of optimism…offering you their beautiful delicate aroma…
that’s how i want my room to feel.
