Spring Blooms

We visited a little botanic garden yesterday. At a first look, it seems that there is nothing happening. But when we turned around and took a close look, then magical just happened. We saw the beautiful spring flowers with the most amazing color and shape are quietly blooming in the soft late afternoon spring sunshine. Then we found more and more amazing spring blooms almost on every single branch. We were puzzled that why we didn’t see them at all at the very beginning. Maybe we have to quiet our mind first and then able to see the beautiful things that we can’t see when we are in a hurry or when we feel anxious. This philosophy also applies when we design our home. When there are too many options and we just don’t know which one to choose, maybe it is the time for us to step back and take a deep breath, just ask ourselves a simple question: which one pleases my mind?

Here are some of the photos we took from yesterday’s visit. Please enjoy!

Color Inspiration from Nature

We were on an ING Live last night for an art opening and quite amazed by the color palettes by the artist. Those colors are such pleasures to the eye. And the artist said all of these color palettes came from nature. We couldn’t agree with her more.  We took a hike over this weekend and were stunned to see some really amazing colors from nature.
