Oh, so much fun with colour around my house lately:
Butterfly pillows from Bombay tie my bedroom colour scheme together Dawne Design.
I’ve been decorating with colourful flowers & butterflies & fairies & real-life elves:
For my bedside tables, I filled matching turquoise vases with fresh flowers & added sweet bird cage tea lights with feathery butterflies.
My little haven is quite romantic at night.
I switched a bit of my glass collection around — added fresh flowers in a mug, a strawberry plant in a $5 bucket planter from Michaels, & a little votive butterfly bucket.
With a wonderful photo of my grand-daughter, taken by daughter-in-law [great talent, eh?], I created this in Photoshop using graphics from ScrapGirls. I have a frame waiting . . .
And nature has been providing it’s own gorgeous colour all around me:
My CityScape window [far left] peeks out from flowering trees & rhododendron bushes.
The front entrance garden is alive with blooming tulips & greenery from fennel, thyme, & various flowers that’ll bloom in the coming months.
The window box seeds have grown magnificently — can’t wait to see them bloom!
In the meantime, the Red Sedum in one of the glass planters grows much higher than ‘ground cover’! Hmm, I thought it would drape over the edges, not stand straight & tall like little soldiers — ah, the joys of gardening. 😆
Out back, life sprouts again this year in the stumps of the massive 80-100 yr-old cedars the landlord had removed last year.
I haven’t seen this lovely purple flower anywhere else on the property — anyone know what its name is?
And, of course, I add my own stunning colour with ongoing stained glass projects:
Work progresses on my 2nd commission — ‘Flower Power’. I’ll be delivering it to the client next week.
Can you tell I love colour?
It fills me with joy & peace.
No monochromatic colour schemes for me, no siree 😆
How about you?
What colours do you love?
What colours surround you?
What feelings do they evoke?
