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:
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.
