Ahead of the Curve (As Usual)
The Post's home section had an article today claiming that lavender is "the new neutral" or, alternatively, "the crazy aunt of gray." Anyway, apparently it is the hot color in home decor this year. It just so happens that I painted my bedroom lavender more than a year ago, so I am clearly in touch with the zeitgeist. In fact, I used Benjamin Moore's "Lavender Ice," the very color chosen by two of the Post's four "experts."
Unfortunately, I am already getting sort of sick of it and am not finding it to be all that neutral at all. I'm thinking my next color will be gray -- a.k.a. the sane niece of lavender -- or maybe green. Look for those colors to be hot next year.
(Yes, this is probably the lamest post ever. Sorry.)
