i came across this fabulous cake the other day.
isn't it beautiful? (cakegirls).
it speaks to me.
what does it say?
i don't know. i don't speak cake.
i contemplated what i love about it and why.
1. the colors (yellow and white make me cheery. mimosa (sunshine) yellow is the 2009 color of the year. people are seeking out the cheer and warmth the sun gives in troubled times). go figure.
2. the contrast (love how white & yellow POP against the black)
3. the TEXTURE. (...)
i realized lately that i am a texture freak.
i notice, enjoy, and seek out texture.
on walls, pillows, in nature, in food, and
desserts, on ribbon, decor fabric, baubles,
buttons... you name it.
i've loved these designs since their conception.
i dreamed, for months, of painting my master bedroom this color yellow. add b&w bedding and elements. when that wasn't gonna go down, i just let it be. my room is pretty basic.
without painting a single wall yellow (gar is a neutral man.) i have incorporated small touches here and there.
