Cherry blossoms are blooming everywhere in the neighborhood, but I have a lot of pretty flowers inside the home, too!
I received a bouquet from one of my students 12 days ago. During the past 12 days, some flowers, which had still been in bud, burst open. The roses, which had already been open, grew bigger and bigger.
I am enjoying being with the lovely flowers. They remind me of the happy days I spent with the student.
I like to decorate my room with flowers, whether they are fresh or artificial. My room is simple, but flowers add a nice touch to the interior. I like the color combination of pale pink and white.
I think my color preferences came from my experiences in Europe two decades ago. I gained inspiration from a building called Das Kurfürstliches Schloss or the Electoral Palace in Trier, Germany. Its pink and white Rococo façade made a strong impression on me. It looked brilliant and outstanding in the old city where there were many ancient Roman remains.
Trier is an unforgettable city. It is where I first met my best friends from the U.S., Melissa and Beth. We shared a room on the first night and visited historic sites together as part of a field trip. Maybe, the color combination of pink and white subconsciously brings back the treasurable memories with my friends in Trier.
I think interior decorating can be compared to a process of painting a picture. I enjoy adding my favorite colors on my canvas as I like.
