MindFULL Color

A few weeks ago I wrote about wanting to paint my bathroom. I’m prone to changing color. I liked the green at first, but it never really sat well with me. However, repainting the room felt daunting. Remembering the lesson my daughter and I had learned – How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time – gave me the courage to look at the job as “one stroke at a time.”

Slowly, but surely, it came together. At first the blue was off, but a quick trip back to the paint store and a little adjustment gave me just the shade I wanted. I love it! When I am in there, or even walking by, my energy changes. What is that about? Do you think that color effects how we feel?

  1. I’m so glad you posted the follow-up! I was meaning to ask about this while I was there. Darwin’s green room has always been my favorite room in our house, and I credit the green!

  2. I fell in love with deep, deep Pacific ocean blue while we were on our cruise. So blue, it’s almost black, I can’t wait to paint something that color. Probably only a closet.
