Color in Unexpected Places

Winter Blues

Are you loving all this snow we are getting? I sure am! It’s easy to feel like a a kid on Christmas morning waking up to a fresh white blanket of snow. It’s so dreamy! Maybe it’s the fact that we’ve had such a mild winter so far (60 degree temperatures?) but I am welcoming these recent storms with open arms. Part of the benefits/downsides (depending on how you look at it) of living in New England is the long winter and ALL that comes with it. That means brutal cold and blustery winds but ALSO the breathtaking sight of a pretty blanket of fresh powder coating the city. There’s nothing better.

Amidst all the fluffy white snow (and otherwise dreary skies), I always find it fun to explore for those little color pops around the city! A few weeks back, while bopping around town (and after another recent storm) we came across this colorful wall at the Verb Hotel.

Wall Crawl

Is anyone else a fan of the colorful walls that seem to be ever present on Instagram? I know I certainly am! The bright pops of color are so fun to come across in different cities. Specifically, I love following along Studio DIY’s Wall Crawl series. I’ve always wanted to create a wall crawl for the city of Boston, but I’ve got to scout some more locations first!

    Great look! Love the black and white with a pop of red. Although I’m not super fond of the bright white snow. (It seems to last too long in my part of the world) LOVE the sun glasses. I just bought these Tory sun glasses. https://davisbe.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/dsc08804.jpg
