The influence of a snow storm

Okay.  I'm over it.  Friday morning I was astonished upon awakening to see that outside looked like this, once again.  I've been obsessing about the color gray.  I've been seeing it everywhere in decor.  But Friday morning, I was decidedly over the obsession within seconds of looking out the window.  My obsessions are fickle like that.  I didn't want to get out of bed.  As I looked around my bedroom, with its black curtains, I decided it was too gloomy.  I want the glorious sun to shine in the room and make jumping out of bed a delight.  I just can't wait for Spring.  I decided to make my bedroom a little happier, but had no money and even if I did, it was impossible to get out of my driveway.  So I just moved things around.  It's surprising how many different looks you can achieve by simply moving things around.

I started with the curtains.  The living room had pink curtains and the bedroom had black curtains.  I swapped them.
Here's the alcove in the front of the apartment.  I'm still not sure how I'm going to use this area.  Either as a yoga/meditation area or as a studio for painting.  It gets great light so would make a fine studio.  If I decide to turn the space into a studio, I'd like to curtain it off to hide the mess.  This might actually help solve the problem of my awkwardly shaped living room.  It's shaped like a L.
Living area.  I think the black curtain actually looks a little more sophisticated, and goes well with my genie vase.  The yellow pillow is new.  I love the pop of color it provides.
 Bedroom.  The light in the morning is glorious.  Now if it would just stop raining.
More shots of the bedroom.  I love my new lamp!  I just put some odds and ends on the little bookcase.  Funny how you can add miscellaneous objects together and they will work, as long as you think they are beautiful, just be careful not to over do it.  Clutter just won't do.  I know I owe you a full tour of my place, dear readers.  I hope to publish a tour on Monday, as my plans are to do a thorough cleaning over the weekend.
