Day 13: Berry, Don't Be Afraid

When it comes to color, don't be afraid.  Searching some inspiration for this berry color, here are some inspirations I found.  In this photo, the green is a great complimentary color.

I love the deep gray which tones down the bright color sofa and lets it take the show.

Even better, I love the neutral sofa and the pop of berry color on the wall.  There is no better way to give your room a lift than paint, the biggest bang for the buck.
Paired with this charcoal sofa, it looks great!

I wouldn't normally go for this color, but with the artwork and the couch, I could dig it.

Here's an example of using the berry just as a pop in this would be neutral space.

TOP TIP: Use Marsala for an intense single feature wall.:

Today, shoulder to the wheel, I got A LOT done.  Looking forward to a church design/decor job coming up.  Have a great Wednesday!

Day 12: Nothing Like an Inward Cleansing

It was great to have one entire day to do nothing but do some cleansing in my own home.  After watching a Barefoot Contessa cooking show yesterday and getting a recent nudge about organizing in our Ladies Fall Fest, I was pumped to dive into the heart of our home and get to work.  It's been a long time coming and something that just has to be done every so often.  Mine was long over due.

I decided to make my hard work reach a higher level of satisfaction, I really needed a few things to make everything look nice.  I went to Target, which I almost never shop.  I went down the kitchen organizing stuff...which I rarely ever look at.  I came home with my storage solution for my spices and few other things.  I first shopped online for tins for my spices as I buy from bulk at HEB and most of them are in zip lock tiny bags or flimsy plastic boxes. 

I decided on some 4 ounce Ball jars and an additional purchase of some plastic lids.  I went to Michaels and found some chalk black labels and fine point chalk with a holder.  ♥  

In the middle of my work, the UPS man came and delivered a package for me I had won as a random pick from my 31 Days of Writing Challenge.  See the photo below.  It is really nice and has some positive affirmations that I will see every morning when getting my coffee.

When it seems like no matter what you do to the outside, and you still feel you are lacking, it just may be you need a real cleansing on the inside.  Like my post on "It's Never too Late", old habits is our greatest enemy.  But here it the tip that works....  I have seen hard core sinners come into our church and instantly become changed and new.  I myself, once meeting God, seeking Him and receiving His Spirit in my own heart, instantly became a new creature.  Like His Word says, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new".  2 Corinthians 5:17

The power to change is indeed possible.  I CAN do all things through Christ which strengthens me!

Good night.
