I bought two green (acid green? chartreuse? ) coffee cups on my shopping trip last weekend. I couldn't pass them up for $1.65 each.
I love them!
I don't drink coffee so I bought them to collect pens and pencils... and provide color.
Brenda of Cozy Little House says "I will choose colors that merely make me smile."
That is what I want to do. I want to walk in my home and smile! So I put it to the test.
We do a lot of paperwork on the dining room table so I have two cups of pens and pencils on a lazy Susan in the middle of the table. No emotional response.from the white cup. So I changed it out for the green cup just to see if I felt any different.
(Yes, I have a baby gate over the window to keep Sardis from jumping up on the window.)
I love it! It does make me smile! But why?
Could it be that my first stove and refrigerator was avocado green back in 1973?
Or my handsome new husband drove an acid green Toyota pickup in 1977?
It could be any reason. They only cost $1.65 each anyway.
(sarcasm) I really take big risks when it comes to decorating.
New decor colors in 2015 will be colors that make me smile, like the colors I see outside my kitchen window after supper.
