Hello May! You have come in like a whirlwind.....the weather has been screaming hot for a few days, then traditional west coast rains and winds....and today - Super Sunny again! You got to love Vancouver!
May brings much to look forward to, new design ventures, community gatherings - markets and shows galore, and of course the month we celebrate our Mums! We couldn't survive with out their love, patience (is word my Mum would make me spell out load when I would lose mine!) and encouragement in LIFE.
They are the advocate in our journey that without a doubt always believe we CAN achieve our dreams. We just need to tap into that mindset more, not make simple things complicated and we WILL do it.
Mother's Day is personally not something we should just remember once a year....but throughout the year. Taking a moments to say Thank You, take a moment just to simply share - after all they were Mums to us everyday!
And I am sure it took a lot of P A T I E N C E.......
I hope last month was inspiring to you and your design mindset, and at the same time you were able to learn. Whats a day without learning a thing or two! I did blog about colour a LOT, the month of YELLOW, the golden colour of the sun and creativity! I colour I have always been drawn to, I think my girlie room as a child was yellow and now my lounge and dining room are yellow. Its a vibrant colour - alive!
A dose of yellow in lighting and hardware, GORGEOUS!
This month I am going to delve into the realms of Purple, the first colour of Royalty and one of deep passion. I still love the combination of Eggplant and yellow, or purples and greens - seems distasteful when you say it out load but stunning when in place.
I am also still learning about TreeHouses now in more depth, and have I believe a real passion for them and the construction that makes them unfold. So I will share a few more this month and in more details.
Wallpaper, yes I promised I would investigate how and where you can design your own wallpapers....and even colour on the walls if you like. Spoonflower has all the answers, visit them and you will be delighted at what they have in store!
In closing the biggest challenge is to be true to design. Not to over complicate the simplicity of forms and functions, to create moods that make those amazing rooms REAL spaces.
Looking forward as always to sharing the conversation along the way.....
