Do you need those days, too? It seems like if I don't declare a day just for cleaning, organizing and purging (excess paper and stacks of stuff) the house just doesn't feel clean.
Plus, once that's done I can play house without feeling like I should be doing something else.
These are the color splashes I am crushing on right now.
I am resting on my decision that our pale butter yellow walls are neutral enough and will contrast nicely with these scrumptious colors. I will also be adding generous helpings of white in the furniture and background fabric.
Besides these pretty new bowls from Anthropologie, new mugs - one from Anthro and one from HomeGoods, and my new pot from Armstrong's, I found a quilt I cut out a couple of years ago that will be on my sewing list this week in exactly these colors. I also had my mom pick up a print we saw on clearance at Pier 1 last week that will bring a pop of needed color to the walls.
I have a few more surprises (including a couple of chippy things I picked up at the Rose Bowl flea market last weekend) that should complete the room exactly how I envision it in my mind...
I get so excited when a color scheme comes together. Now I'm off to clean my nest so that the guilt free fluffing can begin.
