According to the link above, I believe I have color bipolarism.
I like a ton of colors. Reds, blues, and greens seem to pop up in my home no matter the other colors I choose. In some rooms I like soft colors, but there are spaces that just cry out for bright colors. Our Skittle inspired back porch Is an example. It really is an explosion of bright colors. I wouldn’t want it in my whole house but it makes me smile every time I walk out on the back porch to sit outside. I just added the bright green chair to the porch this week. It was a gift from the man who sold me the sewing cabinet. He said that the chair needed me. I agree.
This cushion is going to go on a bench made from a queen headboard. I want to get this done, but it keeps getting moved down the list. Too many rooms, too little time.
The three bedrooms in our house are very different. The master will always be more neutral. Hubby loves wood, and nature colors. I want this room to reflect his aesthetic as much as mine so this is the room of the house that will always be a calm retreat. The master bedroom in this house has burlap curtains, crystal lamps, vintage wood, fluffy pillows, and it is soon going to have a cushy bench at the end of the bed to put on shoes. A reading chair is also under construction. The chair is going to incorporate wood, paint and soft blue fabric. It has a great story and will give me joy in the bedroom where I will be able to read and study in this restful spot. According to the color mood folk we “nailed it” for sleep.
The dresser still needs to be decorated. I need help here.
Yes. We have a television in our bedroom.
I love the night stands. I so took them from the lake house for our master bedroom. I just love the soft weathered color.
The bedding is soft cotton.
The front guest room is a fun get away. The walls are spa like soft turquoise, the bedding is a mustard-y yellow paisley quilt, and the accents are greens, blues ,blue greens, and teals. My hope is that it is a vacation room for our guests.
Look at the chevron bench! I really went out of my comfort zone here and mixed colors, patterns, and textures. Scary stuff but I like it.
My $1.00 curio cabinet holds shell angels I have collected for years.
The yellow flowers are from Baby Boy and Sweet Amanda’s wedding. They are a great reminder of a wonderful day.
Empty frames can add bright touches to rooms. I use them when I don’t know what else to do. O.f.t.e.n.
The other guest room is a mix of soft greens, coral, black, soft grey, vintage silver, milk glass and white. There is a sense of history and a touch of whimsy. I enjoy this room. It makes me smile. I hope it says welcome to my guests.
My .50 frame turned into a fun piece for the room.
Coral legged tables with soft green walls.
The pillow brings all the colors together in my opinion.
Vintage frames, mirrors and resale finds along with new stuff live together in the room.
Our main spaces, the family room, the kitchen, and the breakfast area are a mix of neutrals with shots of color based on this amazing fabric that I am finding ways to incorporate into each of these connected space.
I love the breakfast room. It feels like a farmhouse kitchen with the old pie safe, the weathered items and the bright colors.
Fall is already creeping into my house. I am going with teals, creams. and orange this year.
The mantle is not done yet but it is coming together.
I found one piece that will be a focal point as soon as she is painted. Teal. I can’t wait for you to see her, but she is under minor construction. I had to photograph around her because I want you to be surprised. The armoire that will become the home technology and bill paying center (AKA all the ugly paper and electronics I do not want hanging out in the open!), is going to be painted my trademark oatmeal and revival mahogany. It is my weekend project this week. Pictures soon. Check back here in a week or so. I I had to paint something in the family room this color because I missed my credenza so much that i had to bring it back! What does color psychology say about a room that is brown, yellow, green, red, teal, orange, a touch of lavender, and turquoise?
I think I may have a problem!
Is there a support group out there?
