R.I.P. Rod Temperton aka … The Invisible Man
Thank you for your Art of Songwriting – he wrote such hits as Thriller, Rock With Me for Micheal Jackson – Boogie Nights for HeatWave – Love is in Control for Donna Summers – Baby Come To Me for James Ingram & Patti Austin … and so many more!
I knew of Rod since the late 1970s, I was the one reading the album covers from front to back at the breakfast and dinner table – I was in awe of his songwriting skills and how he wrote songs that made you just get up and dance ……
What do you think about the color of the entry door? It’s a great way to brighten up a worn out door, adding the family initial and the word HELLO just says….come on in!
Before you throw out or burn this years Christmas tree and greenery, cut off the good branches, make small bouquets out of them and place around the house to add some color and natural accents.
I don’t know about you, but my mantel always looks so boring and bare when I take away the holiday greenery. Add some flowers and roses from a local florist, dry them out to place them in fresh garland and greenery and drape over the mantel, the candles add a nice soft glow to the room.
Speaking of candles, what a great way to add a gentle glow to the rooms throughout the house. Nowadays there are so many safe options for candles that have the look and feel of the real ones – It’s all about preference.
This is another option to add softness and glow in the winter – change your light bulbs to a pinkish or softer light in bathrooms and bedrooms…..and ladies, we really look good in the pinkish light!
Adding yellow to any room will brighten your day, but adding it in the kitchen is a sure way to get you in a cheerful mood during the winter months. Lemons in a bowl on the table, getting yellow flowers at your local florist and placing them around the house can sure beat the winter-blues!
Don’t forget the bathrooms! You can brighten up this room by using – towels, switching out the shower curtain, adding colorful accessories, changing the small carpets and window treatments if your bathrooms has a window.
