Feelin’ Blue

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

As a member of the My Colortopia team this week, we’re all taking turns featuring our favorite color as part of My Colorful Life Project and naturally I picked blue.  A lot of things inspire me when it comes to decorating my home and choosing meaningful accessories for it.  Travel inspires me, pattern inspires me, nature inspires me, exotic architecture inspires me, and color inspires me greatly.  The first that always comes to mind when I decorate is blue.   

I’ve always been drawn to blue, and cannot resist its soothing powers.  It’s the color we witness when we go outside on a sunny day or when we visit the coast or take a dip in a pool.   

As an ode to blue, I pulled together some favorite images to illustrate.

Color Crush: Orange + Pink

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

I’m totally in the mood for brighter ‘look at me’ colors these days, and my latest summertime color crush is orange and pink!  I begged asked my daughter if she’d be cool if I revamped her room in these two colors and she told me pink was definitely okay but no on the orange.  Dang! 

So I’ll live vicariously though these amazing pink and orange spaces, and feel free to mix in a little bit of coral and pops of red too – on the color wheel, they’re all best friends, ya know?
