Summer entertaining just got a whole lot better ! Enjoy the private bluestone patio with built in kitchen and feel the breeze from the Long Island Sound, just steps away . The large level yard is optimal for games and catching lightening bugs.

So what does Spring Cleaning entail?

  1. Set up your annual spring lawn maintenance, check sprinklers, cut back overgrown vegetation
  2. Power wash your siding or exterior, makes a huge difference. An if your husband likes to rent things that make him feel powerful this is an easy task! May does this every year and wow does her house sparkle
  3. Good time to service your AC and change the filters
  4. Check the Exterior caulking: especially around Window sills, door sills, and thresholds. I already found some leaking near  a window so that is top of my list this year!

PANTONE® COLOR OF THE YEAR 2018.

ANNOUNCING PANTONE 18-3838 ULTRA VIOLET, PANTONE® COLOR OF THE YEAR 2018.

 

At first glance I wasn’t smitten, but then these mages were such eye candy for me, giving me a new outlook on the use of color and providing so much inspiration. Its amazing how a color suggestion can trickle into every aspect of our lives, fashion, art, music, meditation, jewelry, the list goes on. Cant wait to see all the ways we can express ourselves through  ULTRA VIOLET

from the Pantone website, a little meaning to the color of the year

A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection.
