I admire designer Sara Tuttle’s eclectic, fun and bold style. Her apartment is so colourful and gorgeous! I love the green lampshades in the living room, the dark blue kitchen walls and that pink greek-key trimmed bolster! Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend ximage credits: mainly from Sara’s website, also from Matchbook magazine
Yes, clearly I am stuck on blue and pink today! I just came across these pics of Sharnel’s home over at My Life My Loves, which I’m sure you will have seen bits of in various magazines. It’s a gorgeous Hamptons-inspired home (but with lots of colour!), decorated by Anna from Absolutely Beautiful Things. Check out the rest of her lovely home on her blog.
I love the idea of a co-ordinated home, with a colour scheme limited to 3 or 4 main colours, where everything looks like it is supposed to go together, but that still looks like a home with personality. It’s easy to do it with other people’s homes, and easy to edit things down when you can look at them objectively. I find that it’s so so easy in my own home, where I change things – furniture/accessories/colours – constantly!
I am really loving this home’s colour scheme: black, white, blue, with accents of pale pink. I adore the pink, and love blue/white/pink together. But take out the pink and in its place put green. Or yellow. Or red. See what I mean? Because the pink is in blocks of colour it works just as well with other colours that look good with blue. Those horizontally-striped curtains are fabulous, and I love the way they’re continued throughout.
