Dark Green in a Bedroom

September 28, 2016 § Leave a comment

Dark green is Mr. E’s favorite color. I like green, but incorporating it into our house has been a bit of a struggle. (Especially since the house came with yellow walls!) I’ve long been keeping an eye out for dark green in any home dec photos I come across just in case they might offer a solution.

Looking for something else, I found this photo in an older folder. It’s from a magazine that’s probably long recycled now, so unfortunately I don’t have any idea who designed the room or when.

I don’t much care for the details, and the closet wall is positively repulsing to me, but I really like the colors of the bed and bedding. So, it stays in the inspiration folder.

White, Blue & Baskets

I love the combination of blue and white and palest of pale wood (in the topmost baskets) in this photo styled by Twig Hutchinson:

Found via Desire to Inspire. The blue is a hint dark, perhaps, but the greyish shade is just what I prefer. Very nice!

Here are all of the photo collages of my monthly photo project. The first third of the year is a little dismal:

The second, very summery:

The final third (of September, October, November and December) is looking quite grey:

A full year finally done. It was really interesting, but I’ll admit I had some trouble with remembering to take the photo. I could manage the day just fine, but remembering to actually do it at noon – phew!

You know those photo challenges that ask you to take one photo every month in exactly the same place, with exactly the same subject matter, angle, and all that? I thought it would be a really interesting project, so I decided to do that this year.

I’m taking a picture out of a second floor window towards the woods at midday on the last day of the month, every month, from January 2014 to December 2014. Here’s December 2014:

Too bad we didn’t have snow – a day or two and the scenery would’ve been white. Ohwell. 🙂 At least the lake has iced over. Here are the beginnings:

Lake Iced Over

(Both photos are taken on the same day. Funny what a difference a few hours made. The morning was overcast and the afternoon nice and bright.)

We got a wollop of freezing rain and snow for Thanksgiving. Then the temperature bounced back up above freezing, and now all of the snow is gone. (This isn’t the first snow, though; that we got very, very early in November.) A weird winter so far!

Almost no leaves left – they went fast! And only two days later, we had the first snow-sleet mix this winter:

For a while there was a dusting, but nothing really accumulated yet.

Some fall color is showing in the woods already!
