Plans to post an office update almost fizzled out, but here we are, after all. I debated the matter only because there’s actually not much to show you this time. I painted my desk wall black – the biggest change I’ve ever made to this space – and I ended up liking it so much that I decided to keep the rest of the room pretty minimal.
There’s the black accent wall. There are clocks and other objects I already had. I have my beloved plant family, a plethora of plants that adds green to the room. Most of the few objects here and there are green, and any metallic accents are in silver tones.
In its previous state, I’d put color into the room, as you may remember. There was going to be color in this state, as well, but it didn’t turn out that way. The idea was to decorate the black wall with colorful things, but when I sat down in front of it for the first time, its emptiness opened and revealed a calming space. The black wall is a nothing, and it’s wonderful for creating. For the longest time, I had bare walls with only my plants for color. I’ve come back around to that. It feels right.
The room doesn’t look like much, I know. What’s special about it is the feel of it, and that’s not a thing that pics can relay! I can definitely show you my plant family, though, because those guys are absolutely thriving. They were doing well before I painted the wall black, but now? I’ve never seen them this happy. They love the daylight bouncing back from the finish of the dark paint.
The wall of nothingness:
Where I sit more of the time:
The room is oddly arranged with different things going on in each corner.
A few details…
Now for a closer meeting with my plant babies!
Barclay, lush and full down to his last tendril as I’ve never seem him before:
Four of them along their wall!
Also, my friend Jessica gifted me with a sloth.
The Beowulf gargoyle still surveying the room from his spot above the closet:
A closer look at my current t-shirt display: Sirus, one of my favorite industrial music projects.
And on the window sill…
There you have it.
The laundry room, now? That’s where all the color went! I’m thinking I’ll invite you into my (and Geronimo and Salem’s) laundry room next. There’s finally something to be seen in there.
I hope you’re all having a splendiferous start to your week!
