Pretty in Pink
I have to tell you, I’m having a lot of fun with my Mom Cave project, now that I’ve settled on a paint color that makes me happy, and I’m feeling good about my bold (for me, anyway) fabric choices for the room. I’m digging the pops of color in the room, and have found some new friends to help me with the process.
I have turned into one of “those people” who carry fabric swatches in her purse, and thank goodness for that, because I don’t think I would have picked up this paint otherwise! A refresher on my fabric choices:
The paisley is for the my ugly chair that needs to be reupholstered, and the other fabrics will be used in the room in other ways. So, can you see why the paisley would give me a bit of an anxiety attack? It’s pretty, yes, but to upholster a chair? That’s a bit of a step out my comfort zone. Me likey my comfort zone.
But, the goal of this space (since it’s windowless) is to have it bright and cheerful. These fabrics fit the bill.
And so does the spray paint. Maybe I’m gravitating toward such bright, fresh colors, because I’m in a winter funk, and craving Spring in a big way. But I’m loving these colors – Watermelon and Bahama Breeze. And so is my Goodwill lamp.
Poor, sad, washed out lamp…
But she’s looking fresh and happy now, isn’t she? I still want to do something with the shade, but I’m digging this lamp. Pinky Tuscadero would be digging this lamp.
Such a fun, punchy color! Literally. Punchy. More pops of color coming soon!
