The kind that comes from a hot day in the sun, good food, plenty of exercise, crisp cool sheet, and a gentle breeze coming in through the window. Sleep is often elusive to me. I live through fits of insomnia chased by adrenalin rushes, and sheer exhaustion. The rare and special gift that is an uninterrupted nights sleep – is magic. For those of you, I could sleep anywhere people…just stop reading now. Move along. Nothing for you to see here in this post.
I just of course – plenty for you to see here, even if I am jealous of your ability to lay your head down at will, close your eyes, turn off your brain, and fade into the nether region between night and day. You are blessed.
All this talk of sleep arose from my desire to select the color palette and decor for the bedrooms in the manse. Since I am primarily there on the weekends, I want the colors to be a bit more vibrant than my year round surroundings. I love Kelly Green and feel that it’s a nice mix between nautical and nature that works well for Cape Cod.
My picks range from the high-end to the low for the first of the four bedrooms. From World Market to Schumacher, I was shooting for a cheery space to escape to, read my book and fall asleep to the sound of crickets.
