While I plan my big move, my new favorite pass-time has quickly become 'apartment decorating'. Next thing I knew, I was stocking up on House Beautiful, Domino and other fabulous decor periodicals, instead of my usual gossip gags (People, US Weekly and when the moment calls for it-- OK Magazine). When I landed at the the newsstand register, I took a gander down at my masterful magazine collection... immediately realizing I have (yes, it's official) become my mother. 

Despite the fact that many women dread realizing this life-altering moment, I've come to embrace it. Good 'ol Wendy has opened my eyes to bright colors ever since I was a wee one.  I've always lived in what we joke to be 'fruit salad homes'. Kiwi green living rooms, grapefruit pink bedrooms, banana yellow bathrooms... if it was colorful (& edible) we lived in it. 

At some point during my 2 year residency in NYC, my inherited vibrant palate has become-- for lack of a better word-- dark. I've tucked away my cheerful hues for the city's sleek blacks and greys. 

Thankfully this minty fresh hue has awaken my dreary New Yorker spirit and
encouraged me to think-- inside -- my Crayon box.

Happy Decorating, my friends. Happy Decorating.
