Prairie Bluestem suggested I find one color or theme in my possessions and build my interior design on that color. What a wonderful organizing principle. Oh, that I could discipline myself to make that choice.
I like red.
Not really scarlet, crimson, or garnet. More pimento and marinara and fire engines.
The red of the cannas that attract the hummingbirds. Especially the red of my mother's collection of Dansk cookware, and the hot lava glaze on the Woolly Mammoth's pottery piece.
Fresh tubes of cadmium red light oil and watercolor paints. Cherry tomatoes and a well-worn dictionary.
Stuffed red peppers for a winter supper. A can of Mr. and Mrs. T Bloody Mary mix on the airplane between Denver and Lincoln.
Head 'em up. Move 'em out. The red pieces should probably be accents in my condo arrangement.
