Be still my heart.

I just love Pottery Barn. Okay, I know you are thinking, "They are so expensive and everybody loves PB, so how is that at all original?" I agree. I don't want a house that looks like a Pottery Barn store threw up in it, but PB gives those of us with modest budgets the opportunity to purchase decent quality, well-designed furnishings. And right now, they have jumped on the cliche "green" bandwagon. While I am a total proponent of sustainable living and all that it entails, I am personally sick of seeing the "green" thing everywhere. However, the one fabulous benefit of it is that PB has actually incorporated the color green into its designs this season and the result is magnificent—all sorts of shades of green and frankly, I am drooling. I just went to the mailbox and pulled out their latest catalog and this is the cover beauty shot. I am in heaven.

Part of my lust after this vignette is sentimental, I must admit. My grandmother loved green and yellow and all my life her home was decorated in shades of those wonderful spring colors. The colors used in this photo are very reminiscent of the particular shade she seemed to love most. She was also a fabulous interior designer and I think she would highly approve of the styling depicted here. This photo reminds me so much of her. I miss her.

p.s. Did you notice I changed the blog's background color? I am ready for Spring(:

That is no doubt beautiful. I definitely need to paint my walls - only and only if I could get Shomeek to agree. Can't wait to see some green in the Wacker household. :)
