A dear friend in Texas posted this article on Facebook the other day and up it came into my news feed. I like reading about whole neighborhoods dedicated to creativity and what my people, the artists, do with their houses, decoration-wise.
The aspect of this sweet little bungalow I want to point out is that, in their small living room, three walls are painted a bright white (Chantilly Lace OC-65 is my guess), and one wall is reserved for color. AND that they change the color of this wall frequently.
“Eagle says, “I fall in love with a new color every now and then, and one of our living-room walls gets repainted when that happens. Seen in the context of a new color, our collections and furniture take on a new life.”
Having one wall reserved for following your color whim-need-heart’s-desire of the week or month is a brilliant and very nurturing idea I think. Our color spectrum is such a glory. Why limit oneself to experiencing only so many colors on one’s walls in a lifetime?
Repainting one smallish wall is so very do-able. It is even a solution for those among us who crave color but are living where white or beige, for whatever reason, are the acceptable color schemes.
Onward we go.
