Hi, y’all!  I’m pumped to break the silence with a little chat about color (hmm.. I’m oh-so-predictable!).  Now that it’s really May, and the warmer weather is here to stay, I’m craving to surround myself with a little of that warmth and color.

 

I consistently lean towards grays, blues, and greens in my own home, but I recently painted my small powder room an explosive coral, and I love it!  Since my living room is predominantly cool-toned, I think I need to live with a little more of that coral punch!  I have a couple of emerald green Dwell Studio throw pillows (this and this) on my couch in my living room, and since coral and emerald duo very nicely on the red carpet:

and work magically together in these interiors by one of my favorites, Arkansas Designer Tobi Fairley:

I’m searching for the perfect pairing of pillows to bring a little Spring inside!

 

I love this grouping with a few pillows from Caitlin Wilson Textiles.  The simple geometrics and fretwork balance out the wild nature of the gold floral motif and high-contrast zebras.

Alternately, I could go a little modern meets traditional and create an eclectic grouping. This Jacobean inspired floral motif from Whitlock & Co. pulls both colors in while the loose geometric diamond patterning from Serena & Lily contradicts the deco border in an unexpected way.

Decisions, decisions!  What’s your favorite combo?

 

Have a great week!
