i spy: aqua.


today, i spy, with my little eye something that is aqua. soothing, calm, cool collected aqua. maybe because san francisco’s in the midst of a mini heat wave (it will never last!) i needed a dose of aqua. there’s a reason it means water in spanish. rest your eyes on this.

    Oh boy, this post stole my heart… I’ve consistently always had a room painted this color–and it’s constantly my favorite accent shade, too! Thanks for this, what a great way to perk up my morning! (In addition, of course, to the very large coffee at my desk!)
