When my husband was offered a promotion that entailed living in Brussels for a couple of years, few people I knew had been here before. Those that had either loved the city or disliked it (no in between) though all agreed that, for a majority of the year, Brussels is very gray! I suppose this occurs when the ever-present rain clouds loom down on the flat landscape and 19th century infrastructure. I've noticed that Brusseleers often dress in colors resembling old soot-covered cathedrals: shades of gray and black. Hmmm, my son's adopted this color scheme and we just got here! The country's been invaded and occupied at different times by Spain, Austria, France, the Netherlands and Germany. It's understandable to want to blend in and not attract too much attention (not that the European Union or NATO would agree). In any case, what better way to get through the gloomy, rainy days than to search out the array of colors this great city has to offer? Thus, my mission to find the Colors of Brussels began! Hope you'll enjoy these visual delights of my temporary home as much as I am...


  1. Awesome! Congrats on the new blog! ~:-)

  2. Brilliant! I love this idea! I have always associated the color yellow with you, ever since we were kids, you are color and sunshine. I can not wait to see where this blog takes you and us as your followers! Way to go my friend! xoxo ~ Rachel
