I’ve noticed a certain color combination appearing in my home, specifically in the kitchen.
I didn’t plan it this way. As most often happens in my decorating life, these things just evolve over time. When we moved into the cottage 6 years ago, though I’m not especially enamored of window coverings, I ordered these roman shades. The kitchen has so many windows and Don was going to be away working and I didn’t feel entirely comfortable being on display as I cooked and washed dishes in the evening.
The red came long before the blue.
Then I started to fall in love with blue. But not dark blue. No, I fell for all of the various manifestations of aqua in my McCoy Pottery collection. Those particular blues made me very happy, indeed. Soon, the chalkboard was painted in that color.
And one day, not so long ago, I realized that I had combined it with red. It’s there in the jumping jacks. And the bench. And a pillow.
It’s there in the red chair in the living room that we’ve had for years.
Funny how these things happen.
Then I looked at my blog yesterday.
And there it is again!
Now I see it everywhere. On Pinterest, on blogs – especially this one.
I am officially smitten. And it appeared in my home by happy accident. Serendipity.
Do you have a favorite color combination?
Remember tomorrow is Reality Shot Thursday. And once again, I find myself scheduled for 2 posts as I’m also doing a book review. Double the pleasure!
