adding a punch of color

I’ve been thinking about my white-ish couches and what I could do to spice them up (& our entire little loft).  The new place has freshly painted egg shell white walls and an oak floor — a blank canvas.  The easiest (and cheapest) way for me to change-up our same old (and new!) furniture is new pillows.  I’ve really been enjoying seeing the color combo of neon meets neutral.  But I may be leaning a little more towards an ethnic/global market approach.  Maybe I need to find some fabric that combines both — like the Missoni dress — ooooh.

It’s The Little Things

i live a very simple, uncomplicated life…at least right now. and i’m trying to learn how to not feel guilty about it. and because i feel like i plug into the matrix every time I enter the maelstrom that is my job, i must find joy & a creative outlet elsewhere. this weekend that joy came when i finally found the perfect centerpiece…at least what i think is perfect. i have been patiently waiting for the right pieces to come together and they finally did. when a week in the matrix got me down, i was quite surprised at the joy this little collection brought. but i guess fresh flowers are a good idea any time.
