This is post two of my 12
days of New Years resolutions. As I’ve mentioned previously, Be Brave. Lose the
Beige is not just about color (although I’m crazy about colors..all colors, the
more the better). Be Brave. Lose the Beige is really a life choice. It’s about
exploring the playful side of your life by escaping incessant to-do lists and
experiencing more joy and fun in your life.
Try introducing a little more color in your daily lives.
After all, do we really
need all that beige? Beige sofas, walls, and clothes? I recently exercised my
creativity muscles (see post above) by creating drawer and cabinet pulls like
the ones featured in the photo below. These polka dotted, flowered and heart
filled clay knobs are now affixed to my cupboard doors and drawers at our beach
place. You don’t even have to go to the trouble of making your own. Web stores
and brick and mortar stores abound with fun, colorful knobs and drawer pulls.
The color combinations alone will all but guarantee delight each time you reach
inside for a cup or bowl. Somehow color and whimsey can imbue even the most
mundane task, such as setting a table or pouring a glass of milk a lot more
So, go ahead, be brave,
lose a little of that beige and take a step toward coloring your life.
