The temperature is now a comfortable 73 degrees and there are cool scents coming in from outside. Inside, I am using my fragrance lamps to enhance the fresh summer aromas. I have chosen PINE oil. It makes me feel good.
Decorating to Lift Your Spirits
Have you ever asked yourself how to bring more meaning into your decorating?
Sure, you can go to Target, or JC Penny’s, or even Walmart and pick up a beautiful but bland piece of art. We try to help you select art to make you happy, to help you start your day in a good mood.
So where do you start?
It begins by choosing pictures linked to pleasant memories. I picked up this card on a trip when I was really happy! I actually bought it to cheer up my son, who was glum. He never got the card, for I fell in love with it.
The colors are quite amazing! I was able to build a whole color scheme around it! The orange, the white and the yellow were perfect for my front room, where I had every shade of brown and it was dull. Previously, I had contrasted with shades of green to match the forest outside. Now with my smiley card in my hand I had a better idea!
I finally had a room that made me smile – a room with real meaning!
Artist of the Month – Igor Levashov
Igor was born and studied art in Russia
He discovered his love of flowers while living, studying and painting in Holland, the land of the tulips. It is rumored that he considered the rose to be the queen of the flowers and would not cease learning his craft until he could paint a perfect rose. We think he succeeded.
Until we talk again next month. . .
