Beautiful Life...Beautiful Colors...Peaceful Surroundings
Hello friends. While reading The Inspired Room and thinking about "It's a Beautiful Life"... I thought about all the blogs I love looking at...the different beautiful homes and the colors they decorate with...Then I thought...what are the colors I enjoy the most in my home surrounding me? What colors inspire me and/or make me feel peaceful when I walk in the room? I love the blogs that focus on white shabby chic color schemes, and I love the prim blogs that have dark red, Americana Blues, Mustard yellows... I seem to lean toward cottagey colors, with lots of white. But the colors I enjoy the most are reds, yellows (gold), and green. Most of the quilts, or bed coverings in our house have these colors in them.What colors do you enjoy....what colors make you feel peaceful in your home.
Do you need all white to feel serene?
Do vibrant colors make you feel happy?
Are you more relaxed with a subtle color scheme?
I looked around my house and found reds, yellows and greens everywhere(along with a little dust)!
There seems to be a lot of chickens and roosters too...the collection and then the ones outside in the barn!
Is there such a thing as rooster chic?This rooster quilt I did with 'wonder under' fusible interfacing...you just cut pieces and iron them on...no stitching unless you want to.
Please, I would love to know what color schemes move you? If you had it to do over again, would you change your color scheme? I would love to know!
PS...I gave up mauve years ago when I found it didn't blend with Christmas colors, talk about an awful color scheme!
