"She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; 
it was supposed to make you feel something . . ." 
- Rainbow Rowell-

Doesn’t it feel like life itself is a “work in progress”?  Things are constantly evolving, changing, and, hopefully, upgrading.  Just when you get it perfect, it feels like the Universe pushes you to the next level, and you get to start the process all over again.  I spent the week (with a couple of really, really good friends) painting my art studio -- goodbye turquoise floors.  I have a part of me that is already missing that upbeat, vibrant, color, but I think that for painting and making art, the new, earthy grey is going to be a good thing.  All of the walls are now glowing with a fresh coat of white, and upstairs, in the loft area, we even painted the floor with a thick, shiny, oil based white.  Yes, a white floor . . . and yes, that makes me a crazy person.  It also totally inspired me to grab the camera and shoot this beautiful  Balconette Asha lingere set from Adore Me.  I wanted to keep the shoot artsy and hip, and I think that juxtaposing this amazing skelton cardigan from High Heel Suicide with this gorgeous Thomas Paul scarf from Erie Drive was the ticket.  We hung a plastic, paint tarp from a ceiling beam, and, voila!  White on white on . . . white.  Loving this new, upgrade . . . it’s light, it’s lucid, and it feels really quite heavenly.
