Contemplating Color Combinations!

6 (460x360)


When I am working on a project I like to pull together images that have color combinations that I am contemplating on using. It is fun to see how others combine colors and in a room.

You are about to see different rooms with one of the color combinations I am going to use in my on-going project.

2 (360x460) 
Darling throw and I love the mix of the bright pops of color with the cow hide rug and footstool. Using the wood coffee table ties it all together.

8 (225x225)

7 (384x548)
What a fun mix of fabrics. Notice the large scale pattern mixed with the smaller zig-zag pattern on the stool.

4 (250x250)
Hmmmmm?! Interesting. Color cues can come from anything!!!

We can get our color cues from all kinds of sources. Nature is one of the best sources for color combinations.

It is so grey, cold and snowing yet again here in Boston. This beautiful post is just what I needed! Love the photos (ok maybe not the sneaks). Be sure to check out my post today for an "all things Ina giveaway".

I love the very first picture. Just my style. What style are those sofas? Are they English roll arm? That is exactly what I am looking for.

Hello, Kathysue!


Thank you so much for your comments on my blog today! It was very nice having you there. :-)


I'm so into blue lately and seeing with green here made me feel even more "in love" with blue. Really interesting post! Good job!

Have a wonderful week!

Hi Kathysue, just went through a few posts and I want to do my whole house over in these pretty colors. And I love the urns up on the stands. I could so move into your house. Black and white toile is a favorite.
