It takes a while to make a new place feel like home. I loved my humble studio apartment so much, that I feared I could never love another place. And while it's true that my new place is quirkier than I would prefer - I am starting to fall in love with it. I am doing a lot of experimenting with layering of color and it is making me happy.
I saw this image on Apartment Therapy, and couldn't stop thinking about it. I'm not a pattern person, but the colors here are absolutely fascinating to me. I think you can tell by the sunny pictures I've been showing lately, that I can't wait for Spring! After seeing this picture, I knew I needed a pop of yellow in my living room.
Here's some new things I bought. A new yellow pillow for my living room! I got it for $3.99 at Old Time Pottery. I think it's perfect with the hot pink cover. I wish I could paint my walls pink. While I was at Old Time Pottery, I was astounded to find this pink lamp. Since it's hard to find pink objects in modern shapes, I knew I had to have it. I adore the shade. This was a steal at $29.99. The shade is worth more than that! It's a beautiful satin fabric, and casts the most scrumptious glow. I have it in my bedroom. I also got a new tchotchke at the Salvation Army. The lovely little geisha girl planter. Only $1.99. Not my usual taste, for some reason she spoke to me. I love her. I won't be putting plants in her, I think it looks funny when plants grow out of figurines heads. But I might be spray painting her. Turquoise maybe. Next week I'm planning a full tour of my apartment. Stay tuned.
