On the Bright Side

August 1, 2012

It’s been a bit of a busy week so far (major understatement!) and my poor little brain is on overload from all of the thinking it’s been doing. This post is going to be very short on words but super juicy on colourful tidbits! I’ve been so drawn to bright accents set against neutral backdrops lately….what’s not to like? White walls are the perfect background for those of us with commitment issues, well, design ones anyway. Hues can be swapped seasonally, weekly or even daily if you’re feeling the need to switch things up in your space. Here are some recent favourites…

I really do promise to fill you in very soon on all of the exciting details of my latest venture but for now these bright and bold spaces will just have to tide you over. Wishing you all a bright and wonderful Wednesday!

I’m with you completely in this!!!! I’m noncommittal when it comes to color so as long as I have a foundation of where to start, any color is welcome in my home for as long as I wish it to stay. Thanks Lily for the credit!!! Isn’t Zoe’s work stunning?

All of these appeal to my colour-loving nature, but those rustic green pendants get me the most – fab!

I love that fun pink wingback chair! I recently shot Zoe at her studio – love her and her beautiful work.
