Do you ever have those moments where you feel more in love with the world than usual? Where everything around you feels magical and more than a little bit special? I’ve been feeling a lot like that lately … resulting in an overwhelming urge to hug the world in thanks for its loveliness. With such happy thoughts abounding, I suppose it’s only natural that such bright cheeriness shows itself in the places that surround me.
I find that such feelings are best expressed through collections of items all bursting with contrasting, yet complementary colours … At one time or another you’ve probably seen me speak about my love of mustard yellow, bright blue skies and my ever growing obsession with pretty cut flowers. What a joy it is to have such things all combined!
With the sunlight streaming in through my office window, and a new bunch of flowers impatiently waiting to be displayed, I was inspired to change the arrangement of items on the shelf above my desk. I decided to move all the books that used to live there and pare things back to a few items that I love best. Now when I look above my computer I can focus on lots of cute little critters and a pretty floral arrangement … It’s amazing how creating something that is pleasing to one’s eyes can also lift the heart and reflect a certain state of mind.
Perhaps a colourful change is good for us all? What do you think?
