Be Brave. Lose the Beige is not just about color (although I’m crazy about colors..all colors, the more the better). Be Brave. Lose the Beige is really a life choice. These blog posts are designed to encourage you to discover your own colorful spirits and define what ideally living means to you. It’s about exploring the playful side of life by escaping your incessant to-do lists, and experiencing more joy and fun.
This post is the start of a magical mystery tour through closets and kitchen cabinets, jewelry boxes and shoe trees in an effort to illustrate what Be Brave. Lose the Beige looks like to me. Our first stop is the kitchen where we behold drawer/cabinet pulls that look like the ones featured in the photo below. These polka dotted, flowered, and heart filled clay knobs can be affixed to any cupboard door or drawer. The color combinations alone will all but guarantee delight each time you reach inside for a cup or bowl. Somehow color and whimsey can imbue even the most mundane task, such as setting a table, or pouring a glass of milk, with more fun.
