Painted Furniture Trend

 

I’m so glad to say that…

 colour is back

and it’s here to stay

 

via real living magazine

 

so let’s have some fun with it

and brighten up our interiors

with some funky painted furniture

.

 via something borrowed, something new

.

Swedish vintage rustic elegance

 See the background wall?

It’s actually painted in chalkboard paint

yes, the lampshade is drawn in chalk

but can you see

that the skirting is as well?…

so clever!

Pretty Pastel Colours

 

Thinking about pretty pastel hues

 

 

 my new journal for 2012

(kikki k)

 

 

I loved creating this moodboard

with all the pretty pastels in my life right now

plus a few little brights for contrast

 

 

Butterflies in pastels of…

Dulux Misty Morning 

Dulux Ballet Shoes

 

 

see the owl…

it’s actually an emery board

and much too cute to use

 

 

How awesome is the transparent tape dispenser!

the bright rosettes are made from icing

 I really hope you’ve enjoyed

seeing all these pretty pastel hues 

& thankyou for visiting my blog!

the colour spectrum

 

When I was a child

nothing made me happier…

than a new packet of textas

 

above images via Apartment Therapy

 

and it wasn’t as much about the colouring in

as…

removing all the colours from the packet

and re-colour coding them

over and over

in different colour patterns

 

via pour 

 

Even today…

seeing colours all lined up

still makes my heart sing!

Here is my little saying

that allows me to easily remember the colour spectrum…

READ     ONLY     YOUR     GOOD     BOOKS     VIOLET

 

My work (if I can call it that)

as a Colour Consultant

is my dream job

it’s truly part of who I am.
