Color Game : Moody Rooms


Friends and family lost power for multiple days this month due to snow and ice. Two weeks ago, my friend Connie took this video of her backyard at sunrise in Oregon City, OR. The weather had warmed and Mother Nature tuned up her orchestra. Hope you find this video enchanting and optimistic. After all, spring will be here soon. In the meantime, Connie's video got me to thinking of moody interiors. Let's take a look.

Can you imagine waking up every morning beside this optimistic mural? Maybe think of using a dark, moody color in one room. Just as the Scandinavians embrace their dark winters, there's comfort and coziness in such a room for us, too. I'm thinking of giving it a try. After all, it's just paint.
