That’s pretty much the only word I can use to describe the new look that Marcel and I are working on for our terrace outside. Sunny. As I’ve mentioned in earlier entries, we decided to make some changes to that area and one of the first things we decided to do was change the color. The walls have been white for as long as we’ve lived here, and while there’s nothing wrong with white; I was ready for some color. I found some adorable cushions for my chairs, and I decided to follow a color theme based on those colors.

We went earlier this week and made a choice on paint colors. I knew I wanted yellow but wasn’t sure which color, so I took a picture of the cushion with the ‘eye’ and I chose the color that was closest to the yellow in the cushion.

Today Marcel and I washed the walls and then painted them with this gorgeous, sunny yellow. We decided to allow it to dry overnight and tomorrow we’ll hang some things back on the walls and add some new goodies that I’ve bought. It’s going to be a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the sunshine, an evening cup of coffee, a daytime workspace when I’m writing, a relaxing place to have dinner or even to sit with friends and enjoy some chatter. I’m excited and can’t wait for it to be finished, which I’m hoping will be tomorrow or the day after.
