Vintage Home Inspiration

Just taking a break from the madness of wedding orders and neverending emails.  The kids are both having an afternoon nap so I'm feasting on a little bit of eye candy.  Here's what I've been pinning lately on Pinterest.  I definitely have a recurring theme going on here - turquoise, teal, shabby, repurposed, touches of yellow and orange....Feast your eyes on this....x

COLOUR LOVE - Turquoise & Yellow - Part 2

Here I go again.  It's become apparent that I cannot stay away from these colours.  Yes, they still keep me awake at night (just when the baby has been sleeping well too!) which means it is officially a full-blown colour obsession.  There's something about the calming cool of turquoise and the happy 'instant cheer' of yellow that go so well together.  It is indeed a cheerful combination.  I like cheerful.  Mixed cleverly with whites, greys and neutrals these colours sing - a gentle lullaby or a vibrant summer party mix.  Cool and happy.  Break out of the winter doldrums I say!

An OBSESSION with Yellow & Turquoise (and pops of orange)


v. ob·sessedob·sess·ingob·sess·es
To have the mind excessively preoccupied with a single emotion or topic

You know when you've been looking at something for so long that when you go to bed and close your eyes it's all you can see under your eyelids?  That used to happen to me when I would spend my late nights playing online word games (geek I know but had to beat those high scores!).  Now when I close my eyes at night I get flashes of: yellow door. teal wall. yellow stripes. teal stripes. yellow flowers. teal shelves. rugs. curtains. yellow. teal. turquoise. yellow. white. grey. sofa. wallpaper. teal. turquoise. shot of orange. stripes. teal. PLEASE CAN I GO TO SLEEP ALREADY?!
That's when I know I've become obsessed with something.  No matter how hard I try to think about other things (chocolate, babies, the colour red) I cannot get rid of it.
Anyway, I hope my home and current big project 'My kind of home' starts to come together with hints of this style and colour soon! Enjoy x
