Chris and I are headed home and back to reality today after an extended weekend away to relax and recharge before we start the One Room Challenge tomorrow. (Tomorrow! Come back tomorrow!) But I wanted to drop in really quick today because Color At Home, Young House Love’s coloring book is being released today! (Right now, it’s under $10!) I got a copy last week, and I’ve been having so much fun with it over this weekend.
There were a few great surprises in it:
1. The beginning of the book has a lot of valuable color theory exercises and ideas. If you know me, you know color theory is my jam and to incorporate these lessons in a fun way, like filling in a color wheel and then applying that to a worksheet of pillows on the couch–it’s genius and a perfect way to warm up.
2. The rooms are familiar. From John and Sherry’s living room, or dining room from the 2nd house, to pieces of the show house and maybe even their new kitchen (!!) makes an appearance–it does. And some pages and spaces are blended together like a dream sequence–new rooms put together from pieces of actual rooms.
3. The pages are perforated so if you wanted to color something and pull it out and put it in a frame–you can so easily!
I’m so excited to see how we all tackle the same rooms. How often do we get that chance? To “paint” the same walls or reimagine rooms that are all over Pinterest. You can tag your photos with #YHLcoloringbook to share.
