If it works in nature


After over a week of tinkering with my blog I think I am finally done.  I say that now, but guaranteed tomorrow I'll want to change something else about it.  So, no promises that there wont be more tinkering later.

If you'll notice I'm now using the domain I bought over 3 years ago.  woohoo!  So this blog can be found at www.everythingleb.com from now on.  With the google reader issue I figured it will be much easier to find me here after its kapoot.  Oh, and I have a new logo.  Still the same idea just updated a bit- I'm in love with it an I hope you like it too!

So enough of that, on to the pretty.

Not counting this past week Boston has had some pretty great weather.  It has been the perfect for walking and I love nothing more than walking around my city when it nice out.  One of my favorite places to walk through is the Public Garden.  There is just something magical about it.  The statues, swan boats, ducks, and the gardens.  Oh the gardens!  They remind me of my Memes gardens when I was little.  Now she had a green thumb.

The past few times I've walked through the garden I realized that Mother Nature really has a way with color.  She really knows what colors work together and I think if they work in nature they can work in a home as well.  Actually I dont think, I know.  If it works in nature, it will make for the perfect color pallet.  Just take a look at these examples from the Boston Public Garden





So tell me, what cues do you take from nature for your own home?

The new blog look is PERFECT!! We're in Colorado so I find myself incorporating rustic touches like unpainted wood, faux bois pattern, and such.

I'm between homes right now, but part of me wants my new living room to look like a massive, fluffy peony.

My poor husband doesn't know how to interpret that! We'll see how it goes...
