More Thoughts on Color
So I am thinking more and more about making my living and dining room a very restful and soothing mix of creamy neutrals. I can’t completely abandon my love of color, especially green and that golden yellow I wear so often, so those will probably show up in toss pillows or curtains. I don’t know–I haven’t officially decided but I’m getting close. I’ve even gathered up a few inspiration photos online, which has helped tremendously to narrow down what I like and don’t like.
I always knew I was a fan of gallery walls.
And quirky groupings.
And house plants.
But I had no idea I had a thing for colored sofas. I don’t know why I am surprised, as my current sofa is pear colored. Well. It was at one point.
Heaven help me with that yellow one. It would be like wearing my favorite cardigan everyday! I think when we buy new living room furniture I will reupholster our current “pear” sofa in yellow and move it into what is now the toy room. Maybe. Depends what color cardigan is my favorite at the moment. Maybe I will create a new Mr. Rogers decorating movement with all my many cardigans.
Speaking of yellow, do you remember when I was taking Holly‘s blogging course in the winter? Well, at the end of the session there was an opportunity to receive constructive criticism from my classmates. Many people commented on the color of my blog and said that it was “me,” which I thought was funny since you never really know someone online, you know? Would you agree? Has anyone ever said that a color was “you?”
Holy cow! I just asked The Mister which color he feels represents me most (without telling him I had just written this post) and he said, “You know, I think I have to say that yellow you’ve been wearing. You don’t really see it anywhere, but it looks good on you. I think you’re a yellow person.” Well. Would ya look at that? I always wanted a “signature” color.
