Bright Colourful Rooms
Over the last couple of months, I’ve been suffering from (yet another) style identity crisis. Oh, this is nothing new for me. I’ve been afflicted with this off and on for the past three years. This latest episode was brought on when I came across a blog that made me question my entire plan for my tiny little condo. I was seriously thinking I wanted to scrap the whole thing and start over, using a more neutral palette, natural elements, etc.
Why am I so wishy-washy with my own home!? It’s exhausting!!
But I’m slowly learning, and becoming increasingly convinced, that while I LOVE neutral color palettes and warm, earthy, natural elements in a room, those things just aren’t me. At least they’re not me right now, at this particular stage in my life. I’m energized by bright, colorful rooms. I get giddy when I see a room filled with aqua, pink, orange, and apple green. Yes, this is who I am, and I need to stop questioning it, and just press onward.

Another view of Black + Spiro. It may be a store, but I’m pretty sure I could just move right in and be perfectly comfortable.

It has probably been Erin of House of Turquoise who has single-handedly influenced my love for bright, colorful rooms the most. And, of course, her blog was the single influence in my decision to paint my cabinets turquoise. She finds some of the most vibrant, exhilerating, and gorgeous color-filled rooms from the most talented designers around. I remember one night several months ago, I spent hours pouring over every one of her posts, looking at and studying every detail of every room. Here are some of my favorites from her blog:

Yep, I’m definitely a bright color kind of girl. Maybe in my next home, when I grow up, I’ll pefer more neutrals and a softer palette.
