Michelle Adams Etched In My Psyche?

A few weeks back, after we finished up the first layer in Bedroom 3, I was brainstorming about how to work a boy/girl bedroom with a bluish gray backdrop. I came up with a combo of lots of white with red and black accents, incorporating bits of many other colors. You can see the inspiration images that sort of brought this plan about here, but the main "ah ha!" moment came with this gorgeous room from Domino Magazine...

I've saved quite a few images onto my trusty ol' puter within the last year and a half. Many of them I haven't looked at for a while. This afternoon, as I was trying to come up with something for a friend who is choosing paint colors, I stumbled across another Domino image that I was really, really drawn toward. Pretty much everyone on blogosphere was drawn toward it, too, so it's nothing new to anyone. But it did make me wonder something...

I tend to have a pretty good visual memory, and I'm wondering if maybe I had the colors of this room sort of subconsciously hanging out in my mind, just waiting for a chance to come back out and be useful somewhere. Like Punkin and Little Dude's bedroom, for instance.

I definitely think it's possible. I also think it's totally weird that I've kept thinking about a dose of chevron stripes in that room, too. Coincidence? Hmm? Now that I think of it, I was just googling chevron fabric a few weeks back and actually looked at this very Rubie Green fabric (Adams is the mastermind behind Rubie Green).

So, I suppose I have Michelle Adams' apartment etched into my psyche or something. Strange, huh?

Really, though, there are worse things.

Great new blog! Love the stripes in the bedroom. Stripes are so "in" right now from pillows to umbrellas.
