We thought we were…you know, just coming out of the winter doldrums when the sun bleaches all of the color from the landscapes and trees are barren, the ground is still bare ( or in some cases still covered with the white stuff!!..so sorry for our friends who were shoveling this week!). BUT, that’s why we have a coastal focus. So we deliberately and carefully and with great JOY, select lots of colorful things for your coastal home. Deep, nautical blues, cobalts, sapphires and aquas remind us of the ocean/sky panoramas! Then there are the more subtle pastels, the “sea glass” colors in celadon and wisteria…just writing the names of the colors inspires us! Can’t forget the hotties! Lobster Pot Red. Fuzzy Peach. Flamingo. Sun Porch Yellow. Yep, these we use with abandon in our coastal home. Splashes of fun color that makes us happy!
So are we tired of white? We thought about this for about 30 seconds…that’s all it took to realize that heck no! White is the counterpoint for all of the colors we love. And alone, it’s clean, fresh, dramatic and soothing all at the same time.
And then there is the “gotta have” fav for summer, to pair with a chambray shirt and maybe a belt with a cute pair of sandals…or later in the summer with a bare-shouldered top and strappy wedges. The possibilities are endless. Agree?
