This has been a winter of extremes for us. Extremely frigid and windy days alternate all too frequently with milder but grey and rainy ones, and we are all getting very tired of it. We just had our first snow storm of the season, and while we were not hit as badly as Atlanta, it is bitterly cold again. To take my mind off of the weather, I really felt the need to think about more pleasant topics, such as the hopefully imminent arrival of spring (come on, Gus the Groundhog, work with me here!). One way to anticipate spring would be to decorate a room in bright colors suitable for the season, which is why I created not one but two bedroom style boards based on the colors turquoise and lime green. The inspiration piece for these designs was actually a garden table with a colorful ceramic base, and since I could not decide if I preferred the green or the blue base I decided to use both!
This style board features the turquoise garden table:

The lime green garden table was the basis for this style board:

I really can't decide which look I like better, but what does it matter? At least I was able to get my mind off of the miserable winter weather we have been having for at least a little while!
