Feeling Blue: I’ve got you stuck in my head

The premise of my blog’s name is based on how creative outlets, like working with fabric and other design elements, provide a positive and interesting place for my brain to wander. With purely obsessional obsessive compulsive disorder your brain gets fixated on thoughts which are disturbing, anxiety provoking, and depressing. I am doing well on my medication but part of my healing process is learning to fixate on the beautiful things in life rather than the ugly.

Ever since I visited FAT Paint and saw an old buffet refreshed with a coat of bright navy paint, I have had blue on the mind. Specifically the combination of dark blue and turquoise. Whilst feeding my fixation I found some gorgeous rooms to admire:

Vintage finds like this side table look so amazing with a bright coat of paint. It really modernizes the look and brings it to life.

The restrained use of colour in this space is striking. The white keeps it from being too overwhelming or unlivable.

This couch is stunning! I wish I could commit to such a colourful long term piece in my own home.

I don't think I could live in a space this loud but I lo the patterns and colour.

My current dream is to get my hands on a formal dining room in one of the heritage homes in New Westminster and decorate it with a fun combination of black, white, navy, and turquoise. I see molding, wallpaper, a restrained use of zebra print (ooh-la-la), Jonathan Adler’s chippendale chairs and a certain blue sideboard…ahhh…to have people actually ask you to spend their money and do something beautiful. Someday. Now that’s something to fixate on.
