I decided to change up the wall decor I gaze at when I’m sitting in my chair in order to alter my mood. The wall over the TV had the colorful boho quilt displayed before.
But I decided I want a more sedate scene in keeping with what I want I’d like my mood to be during this long hot summer.
Changing Indoor Scenery:
This is a painting I’ve come very close to ordering over the years. It is from Wayfair, and called “Misty Road.” I just never pulled the switch on ordering it.
I thought it didn’t fit into my apartment theme. It wasn’t cottage style or even farmhouse really. And it isn’t bohemian style either.
Still, it called out to me every time I went to browse the Wayfair website. Until finally there was a really good sale that I couldn’t pass up. And I finally ordered it.
Being Drawn Down That Lonely Road:
When I look at this painting, I am drawn down that lonely road between the stand of trees. It feels like I’m moving farther into the painting the longer I gaze at it.
Almost instantly I feel myself relax. Worries fade away. And that’s exactly what I need right now.
With my patio garden scorching and some of the plants dying before they can even form blooms, it is not calming to go out there and walk around. Not like it typically is.
Unfortunate Status Of My Patio Garden:
I look at my patio plants and just feel sad that this happened even before mid-June. It was completely surprising and disheartening.
I love my garden, love to watch it blossom and flourish.
But that’s not happening this year. Before I even see what color the morning glory flowers will be, the vines are dwindling back.
Changing Up The Wall Decor:
So I am drawn back indoors. And I’m changing up the walls to reflect the mood I want to be in.
I’ve decided to mix decor and not worry about certain styles. What does it really matter anyway? This is my home. Not a museum.
So I’ll be showing you various photos of what I’m doing. I’ve already switched up the dining room wall.
Decorating To Alter Mood:
You might want to think about creating a more soothing atmosphere as this long hot summer moves along.
And bring about a mood that is less stressed with calmer scenes surrounding you.
As for myself, my focus is now indoors where I have more control than I have this year over my patio garden.
