Be Bold With Color

I am a bit out of my comfort zone here.  Most of you know me to be very colorful and bright with my sewing projects and products.  When it comes to wall color of my home, color is a challenge for me.  I am about to be very bold with color.  I’m pretty neutral generally when it comes to paint colors in my home.
Not this time!

This room has been white for over 5 years!  5 YEARS!  Why?  Because I haven’t been able to decide what color to paint it.  It’s the front room.  The first room you see when you walk into the house.  It has been a catch all room, never truly having an identity or purpose.

Be Bold with ColorIt’s normal, right?

Normal to feel this way about bold changes?

The fear of it not looking good or looking way different than what you’re used to.

Overcoming the fear of BOLD change and jumping in with both feet, taking a leap …

It can feel very scary, but, after all …


it can be changed if it really doesn’t feel right….
