Remember a few weeks ago when I got so excited about the Boho style of decorating? Well, I realized it wasn’t exactly the Boho style per se that I got so enthused about.
It was the freedom to mix all kinds of colors and patterns together. To add layers and even more whimsy.
You are going to see my current furniture come alive in a bevy of new colors. Pinks, oranges, lime greens, periwinkles…
Finally, in all my years of decorating my home, I feel like someone has come to my door, and led me to a paint store full of paint samples spanning the walls. And told me to just pick whatever I like.
I have always been in love with color, but always felt I must try to “match” the colors in some way, and not go too far off the scale.
I’m throwing the scale out and throwing caution to the wind. I am not going to be looking for just reds and blues and greens and golds.
I am going for it! I am going to go slap-happy with color.
You will see pinks mixed with my beloved reds. Why not? There really are no rules. Whimsy. You will see a lot of whimsy and patterns.
So get ready, because you are going to see “Boho” my way. I have fallen in love with the Moroccan style and patterns. I love the casual and unpretentious look of lots of mixed colors and patterns and ethnic blends.
I am going on a journey with my use of color. I am going to pick colors like I’m choosing flavors of sherbet.
It will be a completely carefree look. No rules to hem me in. I will choose colors that merely make me smile
It is a brand new year, and I’m bursting at the seams for new challenges. For life is just too short not to take chances. Don’t you agree?
The rainbow is within reach. And I am going to choose colors with abandon.
I may live in a small apartment, but it will be lit up with color. In all sorts of new hues.
Get ready for the ride! It may be a rather wild one. Say yes to color in 2015 if you want to join me!
Do you have decorating goals for the new year?
