Colors Inspire Office Makeover

Love, love, love. My husband would die, die, die. So I'll refrain from hot pinks.

Since I got laid off from my job I've been obsessed with giving my home office, from which I'll be working from now on, a thrifty makeover. My home's color pallet is mostly subdued, save for the deep red kitchen and Sweet Tart aqua blue bathroom.

I wanted to paint my office this blue color but found another remedy for the blahs. Read on.

I'm a far more colorful personality than my house lets on. My office is a nice but drab shade of cream for god's sake! That's not me. What was I thinking?

I love the idea of a backyard shrine for the artful assemblage aspect.

So instead of repainting the office for the second time, as I'd intended, I am painting three colorful mandalas on the main wall of the room. The project cost $29 total. The mural will be revealed soon, but in the mean time I wanted to share in this post the colors that have been inspiring me for years.

The first one soooo pretty! I would have the same problems though. I like your blog very much!

Those are indeed some great colors! I love brights. My ambition in life (well, one of them!) is to one day have one bright red wall in my house...preferably in a room my husband doesn't use too often, ha, since he's more of a muted-walls kind of guy.

I'll certainly swap links with you, sure!
