E very summer when I was in high school two favorite of my ice creams were Daiquiri Ice or Chocolate Chip Mint. Not at the same time. Somehow when I saw this room, I was instantly transported back to those carefree days of summer where my biggest dilemmas were what swimsuit to wear and which ice cream to choose. Life was sweet!
Seeing this room, I could smell the fresh air outside, feel the warmth of the sun and the breeze coming off the lake at our house, and of course, taste the refreshment of my favorite summer indulgence, $1 ice cream night at the local ice cream shop. Memory triggers are powerful!
When a color scheme can make memories come back to you as if you were right there in the moment, we can see how important it is that we surround ourselves with the most happy, powerful memories we can access! Whether they are from our collections, family photos and stories, or even scents and yes, COLOR … all of these things can be happy memory triggers at home!
I am very much inspired by my senses!
What are some of your happy memory triggers?
