(As a long-time horse lover, this post title pun was completely unavoidable. :P)
It feels right, familiar and oh-so-comfortable to be back in the proverbial saddle.
Two years of writing, creating and photographing for my previous blog was a period of great personal joy.
Being amongst other ladies who ooh'd and ahh'd over DIY projects, paint colors, vintage goodies, decor and fabrics was like being in a virtual sorority of creative, kindred spirits.
Now, after a couple of years away, getting back into the custom of blog reading in the mornings is an incredible pleasure these days.
Thinking about and planning for future posts has me giddy. (I'll probably be a bit all over the place, but viva la variety, right?)
Capturing little moments and being behind the camera again is a place I relish.
So with that said, here's a teensy peek at my new cottage home. Due to my incurable sickness/love affair for all things aqua, this little white bungalow greets the world with a can't-be-missed front door painted in Sherwin Williams Aqueduct. And since Aqueduct is such a perfect color, the mailbox got a coat of it as well!
In looking at this photo, it just occurred to me that aqua might just be an outstanding colorful neutral.
It works for fall decor as the orange is a natural complement to this shade of blue-green. Red is a classic pair to aqua so Christmas decorations will be a no-brainer later this year. (Not to mention silver accents and winter greenery.) And even thinking ahead to far-off spring and summer, accents of white, yellow or pink would all work.
I just picked this color because it makes me happy in my soul. But it's conveniently serendipitous there are a multitude of ways to dress it up for all the seasons too.
