How do you use color?
Playing it safe, afraid off change, to comfortable around neutrals, afraid to make a mistake… yes those are the thoughts that hold me back.
But I love color, when Im surfing the net for ideas and inspiration I find myself drawn to colors.
Ok out of my comfort zone and self doubt and embrace my style and quirkiness in color. I have painted many unique antique pieces the past few months. In colors I love and adding decoupage and different painting styles. And after completing my tv cabinet I brought all my collection into the lounge and starting placing and trusting in myself that I could do it,
I bought colorful cushions, grabbed great bargains and a rug. I chose green as my hue but discovered blue over powers it.
My blue lagoon coffee table brightens the room. A vintage with leopard print tray and Noritake tea set sits beautifully. And the rug tights in with the table.
Blue lagoon nesting tables with decoupage. And a green painted stool with gold rims and decoupage as a plant stand to add texture.
Lots of green, gold, black and white. Love that combo. Looks so classy.
The newly painted Tv cabinet seems to suit the arrangement
Love the Asian/french cushion I found in the charity shop. And the wall hanging with a candle. My Asian piece framed from my lovely aunty who has sadly pasted reminds me of an elegant, strong, intelligent women she was.I hope you enjoyed taking a tour of my living room space. I still have so much to learn and would love to hear any input.
This is my most exciting hobby I have ever undertaken. It brings me so much confidence and happiness being surrounded by my personality on beautiful pieces.
After years of self doubt, low self esteem, feeling I had no skills and talents I have finally discovered myself. My biggest joy of it all is being able to share this with you
