Valentine's Day Surprise - Lasting Impressions
The customary gifts for Valentines Day are a selection of red roses, a box of chocolates, and a beautifully hand-written card expressing your deepest emotions to your most cherished love. These gifts leave lasting impressions but unfortunately are quickly consumed, dried into potpourri or thrown into the abyss of other precious memories and shortly forgotten.
One unique way to spice up your Valentines Day and bring a lasting impression of love to your family is to add a little colour to your favourite room. You don’t necessarily have to paint the whole room – that can be a lot of work. Instead, select one wall of your favourite room and add a complimentary colour that is found in items within the room – a unique red in the area rug, a soft pastel green from the pillows on the couch, or a light pale blue detail from the painting on the wall. There is no limit to inspiration once unleashed.
The color of the year for 2013 is Emerald Green – Elegant, Lively, and Fresh! The colour green has been a symbol of fertility since the beginning of time and is known to create a calming effect to the soul.
But just because the colour red is associated with Valentines Day, doesn’t mean you can’t mix up a new colour and show your loved one your elegant, lively and fresh appeal into the spring months. You never know, it might bring more life than you expected!
Here are a few eco-painting tips that will extend your Valentine’s Day while caring for the environment around you.

After all, what would the world be like without a little colour now and then?
