I changed the background on my blog. Maybe you noticed, maybe not. But I've loved the combination of yellow and gray ever since I was seventeen. During my freshman year down at Long Beach State, I decorated my bedroom in shades of yellow and gray, but at the time it was not the popular thing to do. In fact, I could hardly find anything yellow, little gray, and absolutely nothing of the two combined. I resorted to spray painting my dresser and picture frames, and my friend Marci made me a bulletin board with yellow ribbons and gray stars.
Can I just say that now whenever I see things in stores that use these lovely colors, I feel a little bitter? Why did it take so long for the decorating world to catch on? Why couldn't people have realized the beauty of these colors in 2003 when I was looking for bedspreads and curtains?
Here's my current favorite yellow & gray piece. It's an apron. From Bree. And yes, my chalkboard says, "Don't forget to make today awesome."
:) I'm not really bitter. I just like to tell Sam that I'm way ahead of the game, and that the things I like now will probably be popular in nine years. And he rolls his eyes. Like good husbands of ridiculous women should do.
