New Inspiration

I am a fan of the color red, I have it in most rooms of my house. A lot of the blogs are visit are beautifully done in the pastels of our color wheel. I tried that in some areas of my home but I must say I was missing the color red. This past week my Mother and I stripped the layers of wall paper off my bedroom walls. It is one of the last rooms in this old house to be redone. The original owner loved wall paper to a point of frustration to me. Most of the rooms had to be wall papered again due to the damage. I am not a big fan. But unless I want to have all the walls torn out right now and have dry wall put up, I must make it work! Last year I was convinced to finish the room in pastel colors. This book revived my love for red and has given me a lot of inspiration to start new projects around the house and to continue this blog. If you have not purchased this book, you need to real quick. Thanks Kaari Meng for inspiring me!
