“Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.” – Danny Kaye
I love the quote above! In my opinion its really apt for My Dream Canvas and the way I want to live my life! These roses came home on Mother's day. The greenery outside my window, the pale peach color of the roses and the aqua hues of the lamp all came together to create the perfect summer palette. It was not by design, but I can't help but smile as I look at this!
Do you believe in seasonal decor? While I do not actively pursue it. I do believe in versatility in decor. I typically buy things that I can use in most seasons. However, I shuffle things around. Sometimes a rug gets put away or something dark and heavy is pushed back and replaced with something light and airy. My prized possessions like the aqua lamp and family heirlooms stay in the limelight forever:)
I know that my blog" My Dream Canvas" is a public space, but for me its my stress buster and still feels incredibly personal. I sound confused....don't I ? Its where I dream, create, photograph and write. That's pretty much all the things I love:)
Lately, one of the biggest perks of blogging is something that helps me immensely when I move things around my house. These days when I take pictures of a room in my house, I look at the photo and go, "Whoa! What was I thinking??" I see the space sometimes as visually cluttered. I can see what's wrong and what's right :) I think taking numerous pictures like I do, really helps control the clutter. As I look at the picture, it enables me to look at the room differently than when I am physically standing there.
For all you bloggers and decor enthusiasts.....does that happen to you?? Do share your experiences with me!
Decorating should not feel like work. For me, it never is! However, I do strive to create a calm and peaceful home devoid of clutter! I am going to stop rambling now, and leave you with these summer inspired vignettes from my home!
