Club Creative Studio introduced you to my neighbor, Diedra in yesterday’s post. Today I am thankful for having pride in knowing my creative-out-of-the-box-thinking neighbor. Who would not want to know more about how a creative person thinks? Fitting for the Two-Cent Tuesday theme, I want to show you how the love of one color can have a cost-effective impact. Diedra’s favorite color in her own words is: “The color Peacock”. It is actually the love of the color turqoise that has her racing to her paint and brush very often. This interest in painting almost any thing and every thing has also expressed a sense of creative frugality.
It isn’t everyday that you can go out into the world and purchase turquoise painted furniture, a statue, flooring, a mailbox or lawn ornaments. This is a low-cost way to get that into your world by simply and inexpensively painting an item the way that you want it to look , yourself. And why not? If you want to love something even more, find a way to make it attractive to you. Diedra loves “peacock” so she paints many items with that color to reflect what attracts her taste. You’ll see plenty of turquoise, purple and blue here. Nuff said.
You are free to consider this decorating style “quirky” but, it is certainly also “cohesive”.
Lending to the expressions of the colors purple, blue and turquoise is the personality and spunk of Diedra herself.
When asked about the reasoning behind the attached flowers on her automobile roof and back window she responded with her logic. “I go out in the car and park in the parking lots and when I come out of stores I always think that someone has stolen my car because it seems to be parked in between the big SUVs and I can not see it quickly. So, I put the flowers on top so I could spot it faster. Plus being short, I can see it better over the bigger cars.” Sounds good to me! She went on to add, “I used to change the flowers with the seasons and holidays but, that got to be a bit much.”
