My Perfect Friday

Would start with a dip in this pool....

Followed by a long bath in this bathroom....

Then curled up in this space reading a book....

Instead I am sitting at my desk in front of 3 computer screens with piles of paper work.
But it's Friday right!!!

Shades of Gray

I am "thinking" of painting our master bedroom a pale shade of gray. I still want it to be a neutral color but have a little pop of color. Our bath is already a darker gray (rockport gray) so going with a lighter shade for the bedroom would make the rooms flow easily into each other. Grays are hard - you have greenish gray, brownish gray, and blueish gray. And depending on the lighting in your room they all look different. This project might take alot of "thinking"

No paint samples have made it home yet but I started collecting pictures of my favorite gray bedroom to draw some inspiration. Here is what I got so far....

Feeling Pink Today

I am so loving old english roses, they are beautiful and are not prone to the pest and diseases of the hybrid rose. I currently have "Belinda's Dream" which I am waiting for it to grow and bloom. But look how beautiful this rose is.......

And how adorable is this room!!! I would love to wake up every morning with white and pink, but I bet my husband would not like it so much. I simply love that mirror....
