Pause for a personal note…

When I penned this a year ago, tornado sirens were blaring, a global health crisis was flaring, the spotlight on social systems was glaring, and I wondered how all of you were faring. Are things better now? Here in the heartland, my daily battle with chronic illness is real, but I’m managing it. While mine are not yet carefree summer days, I’m ever aware of blessings. A happy home in which to shelter, quality healthcare, financial stability, and also a supportive family.

Illness has provided me with a unique perspective I might never otherwise experience. Because my physical strength often fails, I have learned to draw from a nourishing Source available every moment.

While it might seem trivial to some that I devote time and thought to paint colors, I also know colors impact our moods. And that we seem to still spend oodles of time at home. Workplaces have changed. Social calendars are shifting. Homes continue to evolve as they serve as sanctuary, office, temple, school, and healing station. If in small ways I can somehow ease home improvement and decor decisions, it’s not a huge contribution, but it’s something. And if I can do such small things as I limp along with great love?

I am willing to try.

Thank you for visiting this blog with so many alternatives before you. While I am not particularly wise, my posture remains open as reality shapes me (as a writer and a daughter of the Divine Mystery) into something new.

    We visit your site for the relaxing, calm beauty and your eloquent writing, so don’t forget a minute think it shallow in these trying times. It’s a lovely distraction at the start of my day.

    Hi Michele,
    The house is beautiful, love the colors inside and out. Would you happen to know the make of the bed linen in the master bedroom. Maybe custom!! Just lovely. 🙂

      Hi there. All the fabrics for the master are Cowtan & Tout and the coverlet and bedding hail from Mrs. Howard: https://www.mrshowardpersonalshopper.com/ While they aren’t an online shopping source, you can direct questions there. Thanks for reading.

    Hi there,
    Thank you for sharing, I agree it is the best time to write about anything and everything that makes someone smile. Paint colors happen to be one of those things for me. I am incredibly fortunate to be working on the design of our retirement home (new build). We break ground in about 60 days. It has been wonderful to put my energy into something that can be so time consuming and that takes my mind off the things we are dealing with nowadays. I absolutely adore this paint scheme on the exterior. Our home is going to have a European cottage feel (painted brick mixed with some Hardie siding). I have a question… i was planning to use white windows, do you think that could be made to work with this paint scheme without looking too “stark”? They will be vinyl, so they can’t be painted.
    Blessings to you and keep up the good work!

      It sounds so lovely, Lori. I think white windows will be fine as I love how different values of white mix beautifully. Creamy white top with white jeans? Yes, please.

    Love the colors Seapearl & Pashmina, which I considered using but ended up going with Edgecomb Gray. You could not to wrong with those two! I will continue to lift you up re: your chronic health issues…I completely understand as my husband battles diabetes daily and my best friend here also battles with chronic health issues. So you are not alone. And as you say chronic illness does provide you with a very unique perspective on life that forces you to draw from the One who orchestrates all the details of our lives. But who better to be constantly looking to for all your needs? He is using it all somehow for His glory and our good, and I think those who suffer the most have the most to give and such great wisdom because of their sufferings. That is SO true of you dear one! Thanks for sharing your life and perspective with us. You are a huge inspiration & encouragement!

      Thanks so much, Amy. I am so grateful that God seems to not waste a single thing. It is all used for our good, even the suffering and unsavory parts of life. Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend.

    What a beautiful post! I just painted my downstairs rooms Seapearl and I love it. It was a difficult choice as the den faces east with a porch over the windows;this was the only color that didn’t go muddy gray, lavender, blue, green….I tried a lot of the popular grays. The master was painted “Classic Gray”; it doesn’t have much light and this color is beautiful in it. I found that Seapearl is the same as China White. When I was at Benjamin Moore, I asked if the colors were the same and they confirmed and were surprised themselves that it was the same.

      Thank you so much for all of this helpful info – I love hearing about the lighting conditions and exposure where these neutrals work best since folks are always asking for such details. And the fact that Seapearl and China White are the same is a big help as well – you’re awesome. Please keep us in the know as you gather more nuggets of wisdom!
