Color, It's Good For You.

I love grey, gray, and gris... and love ivory, beige, sand, camel, creame, khaki, bisque, porcelain, white...

But enough of that, gimme some color. It's refreshing to have a splash every now and then! The best is convertible color, something that will work well with your monotone decor, so you can change it around when the mood and seasons fit. This is my ultimate goal, to get nice shabby twill/canvasy slipcovers to perfectly hug my couches so I will not be confined to sage and taupe florals forever (like these Pottery Barn ones below)! What I am craving now:


Get you a simple bouquet and split it up among little vases. I use beakers in patina metal casings and I am on the hunt for some white porcelain vintage flower frogs for this very purpose.


What an excellent use of outgrown crib mattresses! Better Homes and Gardens takes the cake by covering them and little chairs and turning them into a tiny loveseat.


For grown up taste, Apartment Therapy's tour of Maria's bungalow is bold color perfection.
