Happy Happy Joy Joy

I don't know about anyone else, but I have been craving color lately!  I think it's this apartment- it's north facing, it's on the bottom level, and it is surrounded by tall pine trees.  It's actually a lovely property, but my place feels like a cave.

When we moved in last April, I was really feeling inspired by a vintage, industrial, rustic feel.  I made this pinterest board to collect what I loved.  I still love it, but it's very monochromatic and maybe a little "heavy".  Then I saw this picture and everything changed!
Yes, it's Jonathan Adler- isn't it gorgeous?  So now I've started this pinterest board.  Mind you, I haven't done a thing, but change my intention.  I actually think that everything in my house will work, but needs to be amped up a little.  For one thing, I have to finish slipcovering my couch!

In the spirit of my new happy color excitement, I did paint a sweet little box for Ally, my step granddaughter.  She loves orange so I think she'll like this.  What do you think?

I love it!  I can't wait to get started on my decor!

  1. I just read two Jonathan Adler books!
    "My Prescription for Anti Depressive Living" was really good. He certainly likes color!

  2. Can you believe that the entire Sacramento County library system does not have a single JA book? Outrageous! Thanks for stopping by, Manuela.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
