This morning I spent 2 hours in the company of an inspiring and colourful lady. Talking about life, happiness and plants. Her home a riot of colour and eclecticism. Beauty found in other peoples cast offs, and displays of family treasures made this home so unique, happy and so so cool.
Upon leaving, I felt like I’d had a few hours in colour therapy. And woah did I need it. I’ve never been colour shy, but over the past year I feel I’ve neglected my love of yellow, magenta and blue. A few years ago I painted my front door yellow, and yet I had forgotten how good it makes me feel.
So today, I’ve made myself promise to seek out colour, bring more into the house, and rejoice in the goodness that it brings. The ability to lift ones mood.
I think the house above is where I should start. A mix of great furniture and colour that is not too over whelming. I love the tonal blues, the shaggy rugs, the cane mirrors, the use of particle boarding. Yep, this one will do me, for now!
So, are you monochrome, muted or a high colour junkie? What’s your home like?
