Yesterday I looked at red colour schemes, as red is my favourite colour at present. However then I got to thinking that really my lounge suite is my largest piece of furniture, and being on a thrift challenge, with a tight budget (as a 1940s housewife would have been) it is silly to even think about recovering it for the time being. I should learn to live with it and improve on it.
So at the moment my lounge room is shade of autumn – browns, beiges an oranges with a touch of red. Yesterday while walking on the beach with the kids I thought now well blue goes with the browns and beiges of the sand, and even the odd orange mangrove leaf. Orange sunsets are nice to0….
Here’s what I am thinking:
I am having camera problems at present, but here are some other vintage style blue orange combinations I have found on the net:
This one look almost like the fabric of my lounge!
I don’t really want to paint the walls – they are a sandy beige at present. I am thinking I just need a few blue accents to brighten things up. Maybe cushions? A painting, vase or lamp? I love the blue of these vintage blankets. Maybe I could find some and make cushions and a throw.
I’ll keep you updated!
