crazy for color
My sweet, precious husband brought me gorgeous flowers for our anniversary. The brightly colored daisies inspired me to really punch up the color in the kitchen and living room. In the spring, I crave soft colors, but something about summer makes my want to just go for an all-out color explosion.
My parents gave us this beautiful bird and flower table runner for our anniversary, which just happens to match a vintage table cloth I already had.
The red and yellow flowers really bring out the colors in the linens.
I decided to keep the silver bird in the arrangement, since the runner also features birds.
It amazes me how much brighter and more cheery the kitchen feels with these simple changes.
I know it might be too much color for some people, but it suits my summer mood just fine!
In the living room, I simply filled my two aqua ball jars with the remainder of the flowers.
Simply and easy, but what a difference it made in the energy of the room!
This is why I love red and yellow.
They really wake up a space and bring a smile to my face.
Do your color preferences change with the seasons, or am I the only one?
