Interior Design Moment

2015 is unfolding before our eyes. If you know me at all, you KNOW I'll be planning some decorating mayhem. I'm not sure what exactly that will look like this year, but I do know it will involve a few things: PURPLE and PAINT, and hopefully something spa-like in my Master Suite.

Right now my home is hovering in the boring zone. I've got to add some COLOR here! (In other words, personality.) I've decided on turquoise as an accent color, but those front rooms need some bold paint...and when I say bold I do NOT mean bright. I do, however, mean purple. Pretty sure this is going to be one of those "ask for forgiveness rather than permission" kind of things.

The overall house will keep the same feel of course. My frenchie neutrals are just so me. I just need to make it MORE me by adding some pizzazz. Sass. Whatever you want to call it.

My silver nightstand will look fabulous with this color.
Perfect color palette!
Add a bright citron for spring & turquoise for summer

Fall palette inspiration
switch that to a nice sunset orange for Fall
...ooh my old orange curtains would have been perfect!
Dang it.
yep that's it. Winter palette
and back to a nice neutral (but shiny!) gold for winter.
Am I crazy? Who cares, I'm in love! 

and I'm pretty sure I need this rug.

2015 Theme: Less is More

Every year I choose a theme to live by. 2014 was Small & Simple, 2013 was Enjoy the Journey, you get the idea. Here is my FIRST page of the year, introducing my theme, and documenting our relaxing week.

I used the Project Life app for the collage of the pictures in the top left corner, but added the text and completed the rest of the page using MDS. I love the app for getting the "bones" done quick, but for adding text and extras, or tweaking a layout (like adding "Sophie's goals") My Digital Studio is a MUST HAVE!
