Dear Friends and Clients,
It’s Spring, everyone, and it feels like the first spring we’ve had in years, doesn’t it? There’s a new sense of freedom this year, new rhythms, new blossoms, and for me a desire to jump out of my comfort zone and create something new or do something entirely different. These are three ways, in my everyday life, I like to shake it up a bit.
FEEL YOUR FREEDOM IN A NEW WAY
Do you ever feel set in your ways and want to ditch your every day habits? Here’s one way to be random for a day, it’s fun!
1. First, ponder several things you’d like to do, but hardly ever do, and make a list. Some ideas could be like find a new hiking spot, write a short story, finish a framing project, stay in an airbnb in your town for a private break.
2. Then, write down your ideas on tiny sheets of paper, fold them, and put them in a hat or bowl.
3. Next, pick a day on the calendar that will allow a new and spontaneous adventure.
4. When that day comes, pick one of the folded pieces of paper and DO IT!
Change Up Your Driving
If you’re not in a rush with a few minutes to spare before your next destination, take the long way back by selecting “avoid highways” in your GPS app. See some new sites and take in some new landmarks. If Siri is telling you to turn right maybe turn left instead and notice what you would have missed if you had traveled the regular old way. This is also a great way to listen to a podcast or audio book and take in the beautiful sites that Colorado has to offer.
Add A Touch Of Gold
Love it or not, gold is back in. Adding something gold to your home interior always ups the game and brings a sense of liveliness and playfulness along with a quality of nobility. You can create the accents with a mirror, a sculpture or side table, a light fixture or even a simple vase or Buddha statue. Maybe reframe some art that’s sitting around with beautiful gold frames. I think gold looks richer on an intensely dark color. Just experimenting with this idea will add a sparkly feeling to your own life! (I actually think gold is timeless and you can’t go wrong with it no matter what the decade!)
WHAT’S NEW AT ADUE?
BELLADUE, SOON TO GO LIVE!
Drew’s dream side-job is finally getting some air time. Belladue is your new upcycled interior goods resource. Goods ranging from refurbished wood chests, cabinets, to side tables and lighting, and a few new things like rugs and custom pillows. One of our favorite things to do is search for furniture “road kill” on the weekends. We found these two pieces this weekend and we’ll be bringing them back with new life…re-appreciated jewels! Take the opportunity to claim a piece and you can work with Belladue to get the finish you want before the work starts!
