Powder Blue Room

We go through such great lengths to paint the inside of our rooms… It takes all day, we risk destroying furniture and floors. Taping’s a bitch. It gets much worse before it gets better, and it always takes longer than first envisioned.

But it’s worth it, don’t ya think?

Color is a catalyst. It has great influence over whether we play, focus, chill, or sleep. Sure, you can relax and focus in a bright red room, but it’s much easier to do so in a light blue one.

So we corral the furniture into the center of the room like farm animals and lay out the tarps. We’re willing to disrupt our lives for that color, and ultimately for that good feeling.

Remember this the next time you lose your shit, when you drop into that red state of mind. The first thing you should think to do is not to build a plan, not to try and find a solution, and not to deconstruct the problem; it is to figure out how to make the room blue again.
