Back to colour!!

After yesterday’s all-white post, I’m feeling the need for some colour


Ahhhhhh!!! Much better!! White rooms can be beautiful, but for me, nothing beats bold & bright colour :-)

I came across a couple of pictures at Delight By Design that caught my eye — can’t control my love for purple!! I really like the way the photos in the first picture are grouped on the wall, how they add another dimension to the patterned wallpaper, and the way they’re reflected in the mirror. There’s a lot going on, but I think it all works…

I love everything in this next picture, which may be the other end of the above room. The dark crown molding and window trim, circular windows, the way the wallpaper is carried around the windows, the flowy purple curtains… and most of all, I LOVE that bench!! The shade of green is just perfect, and the criss-cross metal legs add a touch of modern to the room…

Who says blue & green must never be seen?? Not me!!


Red basement from Candice Olson — love that zebra print mirror!!

Bright green living room by Amanda Nisbet Design

I was going to tell you that the lime room is my favorite with the Ikat fabric and then my rug jumped out at me :)
Thanks Kelly for the mention
Actually each of the rooms you showed is very special in its own way. Like the Candace Olson room a lot.

Oh I love these colorful rooms. That red basement, the yellow couch, and the last one are my favorites. Mmm love bright colors - makes me think summer is on the way!

Such great picks. I love the combo blue and green..., also purple, wish I could somehow incorporate that, I think it's a challenging color for decor (could be just me though!). I do have an orange room, and it feels so different than the more neutral ones in the rest of the house.

Great pics Kelly. After the wonderful white from yesterday, the splashes of colour are perfect. I love all the rooms, but the turquoise and blue/green rooms really caught my fancy. And I love how most of the rooms accent with white pieces - rather than the other way around! Thanks for sharing!

I am not usually a yellow fan, but I love that yellow room. There are several elements that call to me...the criss cross shape in the furniture, the natural fiber rug, the tulips...perfection.


Love all the colors! The yellow is so pretty, and I love the green bench!
can't wait to see what you post next!
