I have several blogs on my reader that are there just for eye-candy. And usually I am in the habit of starring posts to return to, but then I realized, I have a place for this!  Currently when I have nothing else to think on I start painting our house in my mind 🙂 I don’t dream of granite counter tops and jacuzzi tubs in the master bath, they’re big projects that I don’t particularly care about and are beyond my control.  Paint is something I can manage though!  So here are my thoughts of the day:

Via The City Sage:

Pale greens, browns and creams

Green's been my fave for years, and I love cream instead of white as an accent. Adding the brown tones give depth, I love it love it love it. I have no idea what we will end up with by way of furniture, but these colours are a definite probability 🙂

Charcoal, white

I'd never considered gray until seeing photo after photo of how great it can look. Particuarly paired with stark white, and a hint of warmth in the mirror frame and cozy fire.

Today we watched 500 Days of Summer and in her apartment she had a branch in a jar with origami cranes and small ornaments. Because I’m obsessing about what I will do to decorate our house next christmas it sent me on a flight of imagination: Imagine bare branches hung in the corners/ceiling of the dining room, then imagine decorating them with folded paper ornaments, sequins, glass, whatever seems to suit. Could be holiday themed, or change the colours/decorations for any time (like these tissue paper poufs-not sure if I can wait until holidays to try it out).
