When it comes to color I'm not partial. The diverse spectrum of color gives me the same feeling and reaction as you would have when looking at a beautiful garden or a plethora of varied flowers at a farmer's market. Of course, I have certain hues I tend to gravitate towards more {mostly, earth tones; black, brown and grays which I've been slowly working my way out of} than others for sure, thus I go through my phases with color. There was a time that I was very into yellow. So much so that I painted the living room of our first home we bought a 'buttercup yellow' with an amber glaze washed over it and our kitchen a 'sunny yellow' just to cheer up that petite space which turned out lovely, especially with the mural of Greece {similar to this} that I applied on the ever so tiny breakfast nook area opposite the kitchen. We can all agree yellow is a cheerful color.

Just to show you how shameless I am when it comes to color, remember those neon puffy jumpsuits back in the 90's that sounded like rubbing two pieces of sandpaper together when you walk? I owned two: one in bright pink, the second one a bright neon green. I wore them proudly, until one day a friend said "we'd always find you in a crowd..." with an awkward giggle. I think that's when my wearing an almost all black uniform started. Now, I just stick a to an occasional dash of color depending on the mood instead of swimming in head-to-toe bright colors.








Fun fact: Did you know because yellow is the most highly visible of all colors, it is used for positive keywords such as: cheerfulness, fun, enthusiasm, optimism...?
