It's Only Paint!
Welcome to my new salle de bain.
This is the new color I added to my bathroom
wall and I am loving it. I first painted the wall
a gray/blue but it seemed a little too safe
and didn't make me smile.
This color called Celebration from Home Hardware
Paints makes me absolutely giddy.
I brought in one of my favorite paintings of
a market scene in the South of France.
It's the colors I love in this artwork,
so I chose a fun color and off
I went to the paint department.
If you haven't visited a wonderful Saturday
market in Provence, this is the scene.
One of the best markets is in Uzés on a
Saturday morning. The smell of all the
fresh food, bakery items and lavender
is a heady experience.
And the colors just take your breathe away.
I dug up one of my favorite really old mirrors
and placed it near my deep, deep tub
so I could turn off the lights and
bathe by candlelight.
I anguished over the color.
Do I keep the house completely white
or do I enjoy a little room
of intense color?
What if I don't like it or tire of it?
And then I remember ....
IT'S ONLY PAINT!!!!
