Here in the North East we have had quite the Winter. It seems like there has been storm after storm, and right about now everyone is fed up and counting the days until Spring.

While driving home Tuesday morning, just as it started snowing and we received another 10 inches of snow, I passed this barn. It made me smile and reminded me why I love living in New England. Even in the dead of  Winter, the beauty is just incredible.

Have a great weekend everyone!

What about you? Are you too fed up with all the snow and ice or have you been laughing at us from your 70 degree days while walking on the beach?

This has been quite a Winter with all the snow and ice, school closings, lost work and canceled appointments. I think we all need a big bouquet of flowers to cheer us up and remind us that Spring really is right around the corner.

Since I had a lot of free time on my hands on Wednesday due to the snow storm, I decided to play around a bit more with the new Waterlogue app I wrote about earlier in the week. In doing so, I came up with a great idea for my office wall. I photographed a bunch of different fabric samples I had on hand and turned them into water colors.

I am going to pick my favorite 6-8 images,  have them printed and framed and then hang them in a grouping on my office wall.  Such an easy and inexpensive way to create some colorful wall art.

What do you think?

Waterlogue, the hot new photo app

Have you seen the HOT new photo app for iphones and ipads called Waterlogue? It is hugely popular and is sweeping through the design community.  In fact, while cruising through Instagram yesterday two out of every three postings were Waterlogue pictures.

You can take a photo with the Waterlogue app or upload any random photo and then turn it into a water color painting.  It’s like Instagram on steroids in that it can turn even the most mediocre photo into a work  of art.

Here are a few images I made yesterday while watching (killing time) during the Super Bowl.

This is a photo as it appeared originally. Not a great photo as it was taken with my camera phone during the install and the lighting was not great.

Seriously, doesn’t it look like I paid several hundred dollars to have this professionally rendered? I know my clients would LOVE to have an image like this of their room.

The image below was transformed by the waterlogue “It’s Technical” filter.

I totally understand the craze and addiction…everything looks fabulous in Waterlogue… Even a sink full of soaking dishes.

While driving by this vacant building I just had to stop and snap a photo. The lesson being, even something that most consider an eye sore can be a thing of beauty.

Sometimes you just need to look closely.   I even spy a bit of Pantone’s color of 2014 Radiant Orchard in one of the windows below…do you?
