I'm supposed to be packing. Instead, in typical Cart-Before-The-Horse Susan style, I'm sitting in bed with a cup of coffee, looking at design blogs and mentally arranging the furniture in the new house.
As I mentioned before, the living room walls are yellow, and shall remain so. I love yellow rooms, specifically yellow living rooms and kitchens. According to some, Yellow captures the joy of sunshine and communicates happiness. [Who wouldn't love that?!] It’s perfect for kitchens, dining rooms, and bathrooms, where happy color is energizing and uplifting. In halls, entries, and small spaces, yellow can feel expansive and welcoming. [The front hall is yellow, too - Welcome, everyone!] Yellow, although is a cheery color, is not a good choice in main color schemes of a room. [Hmmm...] People are more likely to lose their tempers in a yellow room. [Uh-oh!] Babies also seem to cry more in a yellow room. [No babies, so we're okay there.] This color tends to create feeling of frustration and anger in people. [Yikes!] This color is the most fatiguing on the eyes. [Thank goodness I look cute in glasses...]
You could also call me, with absolute accuracy, Ignores-Facts-That-Don't-Suit-Her Susan.
