Back and Blue

Hello there! I've missed you all! Yes, I fell off the blog wagon, and I have been trying to get my mojo back.  Kids, mopping my floors, running... I have lots of excuses. Oh, update... I did do my first half marathon way back in November and 1. I FINISHED IT, in 2:22 no less (beat my goal of 2:30) and 2. it has completely shattered so many limiting beliefs I have held.  You really can do anything you set your mind to, corny but true.  So in that respect...blogging is like exercise, the more you do it the easier it gets.  And we all know what happens when you skip a week, or month.  Getting back in the habit is almost painful.  Enough " isms." So here I go...

OK, I fell in love with David Collin's Bangkok apartment when I was flipping through an issue of the Aussie mag Belle this past September. (See, I even had the material to post. Shame on me.)  I just came across it again today when I was doing some clean out of the massive  magazine stacks next to my bed and all around my living room. (Mom, I inherited your hoarding of magazines gene. Thanks.)  Check it out...




 And some more of his work...


 I have long been a fan of blues, and Mr. Collins does blue SO well. I love how he frequently adds purplish-pinks... I am currently doing my bedroom over in blue and this just confirms my want to add magenta.




Check out more of his lovely work here.

Belle is a fabulous Aussie magazine although it can be sometimes hard to find. Thanks for reminding me about it, I'm going to look for a copy tonight!

Also, I totally agree with the blogging is like exercise comment. Once you stop, it takes a bit to get back to where you were!

I'm obsessed with blue and I would have to say 70% of my house is decorated in blue. I have a problem. These interiors are making me drool....

Congrats on the marathon! Love the spaces - serene but sophisticated.
