Bright Colors To Cheer You Up

March 26, 2013

Sometimes all I really want is some bright freaking colors. It may have something to do with how very gray March has been here. Bright, saturated colors have a way of waking up the senses, and they just make me feel cheerful. I love in the above living room the way the sofa matches perfectly with the trim on the window treatment. It keeps the eye-catching sofa from attracting all of the attention and leads your eye around the room.

It takes a very bold person to choose bright sunflower yellow window curtains.  Truthfully speaking this is a touch more yellow than I’d personally want, but I’m still inspired by it. I especially love how beautifully it pairs with the rich blue sofa.

Oh god I love this. It is such a stunning example of truly modern design. The definition of modern I’m referring to is “of or pertaining to present and recent time”. This is current. It is inventive. All design is informed by the past so you will always be able to connect-the-dots between generations of style, but it’s still so exciting to see design that feels fresh. I adore this brightly colored, eclectic, and personalized space.

    While I love bold colors, I’m not normally one for bright colors – pink, for example, is a color I would never ever use. That bright yellow, though, really caught my eye and I’m warming up to it. I think if I ever were to do something bright it would have to be just all-out balls to the wall like that!

      I LOVE PINK. But I guess it’s okay that you don’t. 😉 That yellow is really intense and fun though. Balls to the wall indeed. Bahaha.
