Too much snow for you?
I live in Southern California and we don’t get snow here where I live (valley), BUT I can see it all around me in the mountains and I do watch the news. I must say we have had a lot of rain this year in Southern California and that also keeps us indoors. That gets us to the reason of this blog – Lift up your spirits with COLOR!
We all know that color can effect your mood, I’m sure some of you have even felt it.
How does a bright, well lite room with a lot of natural light make you feel?
Now compare that to a dark paneled, heavy furniture, all artificial lighting make you feel?
For me the first makes me feel light in the mood, light in the step, full of fun and action; the second makes me feel very serious, no laughter in my heart it’s like I’m waiting to hear bad news!
Here’s some tips to brighten up your home with color.
Blank staircase? Your not into having your family history up the wall, that’s OK! But make a statement, paint it in a light cheerful color to give it a personality, it wall say “Look At Me”!
This is a perfect example how to brighten up a room with color. They have medium to dark wood kitchen cabinets, hardwood flooring, wood beam ceiling, and wooden blinds. All this wood and there’s nothing masculine about this room with the addition of yellow walls, blue and white accents on the wall and fabric chairs to brighten up this everyday look. Now, this is a place I would enjoy sitting drinking my morning coffee watching is snowing outside. (I know, it’s the shoveling we all look forward too!) And by the way: I’m originally from Pennsylvania – spent the first 24 years of my life in York, PA…
