Vermilion

vermilion, blood orangephoto via Caan Design.  By Jamie Bush & Co. Why, hello there.

How is everyone? In light of the recent snowstorm we just experienced, I thought I would warm things up with a bit of colour inspiration.

I'm officially in love with this interior above.  Which is quite surprising since I've been all-rustic-everything lately.  I love the juxtaposition of natural materials and industrial finishes in this photo.  The b&w abstract painting against the wood console + paneling create such an interesting mix of textures and colour.  And of course the gold adds a touch of bling to the photo which I can't be mad at.  It's rather delicious, I think.  And I'm calling this colour vermilion.  I could be wrong, but apparently there are a hundred shades of vermilion.  Some are more of a vibrant red and others more of a blood orange.  Either way, I think it's lovely.  I really need to add some colour into my home and wardrobe and this is a great hue to mix with tan, black or white. Feelin' it?

Bright and Cheery

Spring is nearly upon us and I'm loving the bright colours and patterns right now. Especially these cheerful items from Anthropologie. Just looking at them makes me feel like warm weather is just around the corner.

Do you have any bright and bold patterns in your home? Or what are you doing to get ready for Spring?
