I was leafing through the new Country Living and the decorating theme was white. I admit to a fascination with that style of decorating – the way many bloggers/decorators use white and cream and how lovely those rooms can look. And I have white and cream in my home: my kitchen table, a hutch, an armoire, some side tables and my wicker chair. I love the way white and cream brighten our rooms.
But my friends, I love color. I have to have it around me. Yellow, red, aqua, green – they are everywhere in my home. In the kitchen:
The living room:
On the walls of the upstairs bathroom:
In the studio:
As I look outside at a sea of white – we’re in the middle of another major snow event – I know more than ever that I need color.
Just as our red shed stands out against the snow covered landscape, my creamy white walls are the backdrop for pops of color everywhere – some of it subtle, some of it deep and rich. All of it a necessity.
What are your favorite colors?
