I with patterns.

Like I said in the last post, colours make things come alive - and patterns are similar. They're intriguing. They can be dangerous too, especially when they become overwhelming and make you dizzy. But placed in unexpected places/moments they can can add just the right amount of that extra "something".

Like this placemats on Twig and Thistle...

Or these accessories on Ish and Chi

And last but not least, these pieces from Anthropologie

I will...not be afraid of colour.

The next bunch of blogs will express some "resolutions" I've made. You know when you think something is fantastic (rather than blah) and you can't quite put your finger on what makes it that way? This is me putting my finger on it.

The first one is colour. Something about a unique colour palette makes things fantastic - it brings things to life. Maybe it's painting a wall a vibrant colour (photo 3), but not always. Accent colours are still in, and can still work well (see photo 5), but often it's about more than just one colour. I like things colourFUL. Not crazy and haphazard colourful - just enough to create visual interest. Good colours draw me in. Kinda like in these rooms...

Just the word pinecone is interesting. I just love how effortless and natural they look - they make a statement on their own. Combine that with a unique display idea - brilliant.

Lately I'm all about these little breakfast nook areas. Someday...
