MONDAY MUSING: PAINTING THE WORLD WITH COLOR

Event design, interior design, and fashion are very similar creatures – which is exactly why I love them all! They are all a form of interactive art, a play on personality, a form of expression, and a means to add color and beauty into daily living.  These aspects are what make life bareable and what makes each individual so outwardly unique.

When you walk into a home, you are walking into a glimpse of another life; you are viewing someone else’s memories, dreams, and daily struggles. When you pass an individual on the street, you are getting a preview of who they are now and who they want to be; you are viewing someone else’s stature in society, their aspirations and their insecurities. When you step into an event, you are stepping into a personal and privileged celebration; you become a part of someone else’s vision and benefit to their mission.

These are just some of the ways we choose to paint the world:

HAPPY FOURTH!!

In honor of today, I’ve thrown together an Independence Day inspired glam interior for your viewing pleasure…

Glam 4th of July Cocktail Party

Unfortunately – or perhaps fortunately – I will be celebrating the day in a much less glam but perhaps more entertaining manner! Yeah, I’m more of a outdoor bbq, corn and kabob kind of gal. While I’d be all over that red champagne above (yum!), I’d be just as happy with an ice cold beer in hand. This is my kind of style…
Independence Day Style
And with that said, let me get on to the celebrations! Be safe, enjoy – and HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY YA’LL! Cheers.
