There is a magazine cover of a lush living room out on news's stands right now. Lovely chartreuse green walls, white couch, white distressed furniture, hot pink and lime cushions. Spring, fresh, fun, flirty. And I want to redecorate my living room like it. Think colors like dewy maiden hair ferns, and hot pink cyclamen. Maybe with some white double begonias thrown in. And I want it. And that is so not going to be my living room. There is no way that Gar would be happy in something feminine and flirty. He's such a guy. I am such a girl. So how do I fulfil my inner paint can, my flirtier side, without constantly redecorating? I play with Picasa collages. There I can live in saturated color, mix, and match, blend and play. I can combine chartreuse with magenta pink, and antique white, something I just can't or won't do in my own place.
And if something turns out really well, then I can always make a greeting card out of it. It certainly is cheaper than redecorating.
