Choosing colors to live with and live in is overwhelming…
and the notion that things have to “match” is limiting.
Look to Nature.
Greens and blues can go together!
Orange and red often join beautifully!
Take a look at two versions of the same color, like a blue and a blue-green, and in proper scale they meld like sugar and spice. Mute one to enhance the other and throw in a white or neutral to keep your bolder choices front and center.
Sometimes a room, tablescape or outfit decked in soothing neutrals
can create the most balanced environment and mood.
Start with a color that makes you feel
….calm and comfortable…
…expressive and creative…
…or happy and energized…
…and open your eyes to one color
…and it’s variety of hues.
“The color of the object illuminated partakes of the color of that which illuminates it”
