Happy New Year!  One of my resolutions is going to be having blooming plants in my apartment.  During the winter months, it is very warming to have flowers around your space.  It adds cheer to the cold months, and adds color and a feeling of the spring to come.  Sometimes it is just the simplest things that add a sense of cheer and well-being to our lives.

Much luck and love in 2013!

…and maybe these shoes just casually lying around!

I saw this painting (even though small) and I immediately visualized it as a take-off point in a room, whether it be a white room, a neutral toned room…etc.

It would be fun to keep all furniture neutral except for the pillows and accessories, pulling out colors from this fun piece.  The sky is the limit…sheets, place mats,  dishes, flowers…  WOW!

Texture along with color make a room interesting. The weave of a fabric can be art in itself. I have always loved the titles given to certain fabrics and the color names; it lures you into using them in your own apartment…if only a touch of it. Maybe just a pillow or two will satisfy! Perhaps just a little accent color from a favorite painting…

Sigh!

Not only do I love the white drawing-like painting in the room, but I especially like the splash of orange.  It is a ‘feel good’ color.  I relate it to the Sacral Chakra, SVADISTHANA, ones own abode (if you are into that). But if that is not  your thing,  it just adds a great punch to a room.  I use it in my space and it definitely has a pleasant effect.

This chair makes a statement where a little ‘wow’ is needed.   It doubles up as a functional piece and sculptural form.
