I just adore snowmen ~ they’re the cute little buddies of winter. I created this pattern earlier this year and I think it turned out bright and cheery and extremely cute. The pattern, which is called Winter Buddies, is my pattern of the month for December and features snowmen, mittens and bright red flowers on a blue/gray background. It is available through Spoonflower in gift wrap, fabric and wallpaper, should you so desire, but I think the gift wrap is the best use of it.
Wishing all of you a lovely weekend…
I know this may come as a shock (cough, cough), but I do indeed have a pink Christmas tree. It’s a small tabletop one, but it is gloriously pink. I decided this year to outfit it with a few very feminine ornaments and some bright pink and silver touches. It looks perfect against my new Pink Flamingo wall, don’t you think? And I do love how it glows at night.
Even though I spent the better part of the past year painting all the rooms in my house, I can’t seem to completely stop. A couple of weekends ago, I had to repaint the porch ceiling and the rest of the porch, so I figured I might as well go ahead and paint the great wall in the living room. Again.
I call it the great wall because at 18 feet, it’s the longest uninterrupted wall in the house ~ it’s the perfect backdrop for my collection of women portraits (also known as the Wall of Women). And while I know it sounds a bit odd to repaint the wall considering all the thought I put into the color last year, it just didn’t seem quite right. These past few months I had been thinking the color of the wall needed to be warmer and brighter. I went through just about every pink paint chip I could get my hands on the last couple of months and then, finally, I found THE ONE, the color I had been looking for and dreaming about, the perfect pink for my wall: Pink Flamingo.
The photos above show the living room with the accent wall painted in Pink Flamingo. Isn’t it fab? It deepens as the light dwindles and is cheery and warm and welcoming during the day. I just love it.
Here’s the original color on that wall, a much cooler pink:
And here it is now:
It’s much warmer, don’t you think? Lovely and warm and bright ~ it really gives the room the feel I was looking for. And so far, everyone loves it. My friends especially love that I painted part of my living room a color named Pink Flamingo. What do you think?
Wishing all of you a lovely Thanksgiving...
