Hello friends! January has come and finally gone… As we prepare for a cold front in the next couple of days, I can’t help but have some PTSD from last February’s freeze. It was the longest four days ever without power. Having two little ones at the time was no easy feat. Looking on the bright side — at least we had water. I’d take the cold without power any day over not having water. That being said, Spring can not come soon enough. I don’t want to sound like I’m wishing time away, but I’m really looking forward to getting our garden going again. The color I keep seeing every where lately that’s resonating with me is green, which I think is only fitting for the start of this new year.
Green has a couple of meanings that I think you can actually feel from these beautiful images. Meanings like renewal, refresh, health, peace, calming and growth all ring true. Incorporating green in your space, whether it’s the color of fabrics, paint or plants, brings a warmth of nature and life. As we prepare to be spending more time indoors, I can’t help but fear a sense of restlessness that comes along with being cooped up during cold winter days. It’s scenes like a coffee table scape with emerald porcelain tchotchkes from the home of Katherine Power that make a room feel warm. It’s spaces like the cover of A Beautiful Mess that can make your home feel like it’s warm out year round. I wasn’t always a lover of color until I started spending more time at home. I realize how much it can lift my mood. Is there a color that does that for you?
