Hello! And welcome! I am Dee: A color obsessed, décor obsessed, recovering brown thumb with an eye for fashion. I am a full-time working mama of two boys that flexes her creative side through her writing, personal style and her rental décor projects.
My vibrant West African heritage heavily influences my love of being outdoors especially by the sea and in the mountains. Alas, with an impressive list of allergies and a strong aversion to bugs, I have settled on slowly transforming our rental apartment into the urban jungle oasis of OUR ( my husband will deny this) dreams.
With a BA in BioPsychology and a Masters in Public Health, I am fascinated by the psychology of color and how that affects ones health. You will see plants featured in my décor often both for their health benefits (hello oxygen!) and for their colorful additions to interiors. My bold use of color in my personal style and décor is indicative of my approach—I focus on how a person FEELS in their clothes and in their home.
“What I hope to do is to show you how to improve your wellbeing by embracing your inner color lover—with small and impactful changes in your home décor and wardrobe.”
This is a family of bookworms. That is obvious in our remarkable assortment of grown up and children’s books alike. And yes, I talk about books often on this blog. Growing up in Ghana, I could often be found in the bathroom with my nose buried in a book. So it is no surprise that the man I married is basically a walking encyclopedia—you know, my google before there was a “hey google”? Lol. But, I do have to admit that my life after children has resulted in a growing love for audio books.
“My philosophy is that people should work with what they have instead of waiting for that ideal future state.”
I don’t waste my time crying for the days of Dee past or Dee future. That means that I decorate my rental apartment instead of waiting to buy a house and It also means that I dress for the post-baby body I am currently sporting. What I hope to do with this blog is to show you how to improve your wellbeing by embracing your inner color lover—with small and impactful changes in your home décor and wardrobe.
