I have a love / hate relationship with colour. I’m forever envious of people’s homes that are full of colour, character and are beautifully cheery. I’ve tried colour. And I can’t do it. I fully appreciate and admire brave colour palettes, but I just can’t do them. I get really uncomfortable when there are wild colours in my own space. I’ve tried to figure it out. I fought it for a long time, but I’ve learned to accept that I’m a colour-phobe and embrace it.
I do have colours other than maroon / burgundy that I appreciate [I know, I didn’t think it were possible either]. Case in point –
teal or turquoise viridian*.
I crammed them in my bike basket on Friday and cycled home. And so far, they’re not driving me crazy! They’re such a deep
turquoise viridian and I think that’s what works. Plus, they’re velvet. But don’t expect to see loads more teal all up in here. Just little punches.
I think this dark shade goes really well with the plum accents as well as some of the dainty pink here and there in our home. So what about you? Do you have an unusual colour crush? Or is there one you can’t stand? Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s this picky with colours …
– I would just die if I could have a black ghost chair. Or dark grey. I’m not picky
Oh and before I forget, above is a better picture detailing the top ‘drawer’ in our new old desk; it folds down revealing a rolling shelf that I use for my keyboard and mouse, and when the desk isn’t in use, we store our laptops in there. Out of sight, out of mind. This little desk isn’t just a pretty face, and I couldn’t be more smitten.
