I'm feeling a little like I am able to breathe these days.
We had someone make an offer on our house. We are in contract on a new home. Questions are getting answered and grey areas are coming to light. This move has been in the works for 18 months and we are in the home stretch.
Can I say that again?! THE HOME STRETCH.
I'm so punny.
And, since I have spent the past year and a half readying my home for sale, I am quite over making design choices that are 'neutral' and 'vanilla' and 'universally appealing'. In fact, the pendulum might be swinging the exact opposite direction.
I am craving color. And texture and bold choices.
What's funny about it is that we are moving into a very tradtional, somewhat historic, classic stone tudor house.
So of course I'm thinking PINK. (Not orchid, the Pantone Color of the Year. Personally, I think they got that one wrong.) More like the deep fuschia of a bouganivilla vine.
Or Indigo, as we are calling it in 2014.
And antique brass (just as I spent a year covering up and replacing shiny 90's brass).
