Amos and I went to New Orleans last week for a workshop, and found ourselves getting re-inspired for our home again. Check out some of these highlight moments.
The color scheme on the walls of New Orleans are bold and cartoony -- my kinda lifestyle. #StudioBe is an incredible gallery, where we found distressed walls, graffiti art, and positive messages all over their walls. They also had a corner dedicated to young community artists, which truly inspired me. The last few shots are of us wandering the streets. The statue street artist reminded me of my retro home - 1920's and fabulous. Bacchanal Wine Bar and Restaurant made great use of XMAS lights. We're thinking of doing something like this for gatherings or events. We also enjoyed the exterior lights used in some of the homes and businesses. New Orleans is not afraid of color, and that was truly exciting to be around. The last image reminded me of Amos and I, during our wedding. I know he's not a skeleton - but the wall art made me think about the mural I want to paint in my house. Though the more I think about it, the more I'd like it to be outside. More details to come in the near future. Right now, the boo and I are raising funds again. Fixing a house is expensive y'alls, but it doesn't mean we have to wait for it to be our home.
