I could live in this picture all summer long. Only a few more weeks of summer left and I am still on the hunt for the perfect outdoor fabrics. Oh dear, I may have it all ready just in time for next summer. These Trina Turk for Schumacher outdoor/indoor fabrics are gorgeous, so full of colour and optimism. I love everything about this picture especially the sunlounge. I have been eyeing a similar white sunlounge from Freedom, minus the fun yellow zebra cushions (which I love).
For a few years now blue has been creeping into my wardrobe. I have never been a blue person in terms of my home. This is how it usually happens with me, I go through colour phases and it all starts with fashion. I started wearing yellow a few years back, I was completely drawn to it, every single thing I looked at was yellow. My best friend would laugh at me when we went shopping! And now, bit by bit, there is yellow everywhere in our home. I can feel blue coming, not a light blue, a bold royal blue. I don't know how it would look with all the yellow (and green) in our home but it looks pretty darn fantastic with the yellow above don't you agree?
This is why I love neutrals for all my big purchases, it is so easy to move a vase or a cushion to another room (or the closet). But a yellow sofa, not so much. That is really my style anyway, I think. Lots of white, black, timber with a bold colour popping against it. Watch this space, it could take awhile, but I feel royal blue will make an appearance sometime soon in my home.
How do you choose the colours in your home? Do you have a favourite colour from childhood, or go through phases like me? I've been pretty lucky with my husband, we seem to like the same colours but it must be a struggle for some couples. Colour is such an emotional and personal choice. Oh boy, I've gone off on a little tangent here, this did not start out to be a conversation about colour. I just loved the fabrics above and wanted to share the beauty of them with you :)
I hope you have a gorgeous colourful weekend!
