Color Craving

Growing up, we had a white home. White on every wall, in every room, on all three floors. White, white, white. This...does not suit my personality. I couldn't have been more thrilled when, over spring break of my sophomore year, my dad painted the walls of my bedroom gorgeous soft shades of blue and green to match my bedding. It just sang to my soul. I loved it. To this day, after all these years, when I walk into my old bedroom, those colored walls just soothe me somewhere deep down in my heart.

Truth About Me: I NEED color. NEED it. CRAVE it. LOTS and LOTS of color.

What do we think of this? I think that this is going to be the winning color scheme for our t.v. room and I couldn't be more thrilled. I have to feel a connection to the colors that I'm seeing to feel okay with surrounding myself with them. And this...this just makes me want to curl up in the blanket in the picture with a Jane Austen novel and a cup of herbal tea. Love. Maybe that green on the walls? With some lovely soft throws on the couch and chairs, fluffy pillows, and soft golden lighting? *happy sigh*

p.s. This color swatch was made by my newest obsession- the Chip It! app from Sherwin Williams. I'll be doing a post about it in the future, but if you want to get a jump on the game head over to and check it out. It's amazing and I will now be thinking of everything I see in terms of color swatches. lol.
