What a powerful opening statement! It was taken from an article entitled "For the Love of Color" by Carol Venolia in the latest edition of Natural Home Magazine. It explores the effects color has on our minds.
In the next series of posts, I want to relate to color in a different way...how the colors of nature influence the colors and interior design of our homes. Animals, flowers, mountains, and earth...visual and tactile....I'm really going to bring the outside in!
THIS IS FRED...
This is my pet groundhog, Fred. Ok, he's not my pet. Fred just looks adorable, lives on my property and eats all the food growing in my garden. Come to think of it, Fred sounds like my kids!
Fred has the most luxurious coat - deep rich brown, underlayed with soft black and highlighted with a silver grey. He reminds me of a couple of beautiful fabrics from Norbar.
This one is Arvida in Walnut from the Etna collection. Soft, suede-y brown in a herringbone pattern with undertones of black and a slight sheen in the right light.
Pulse in Charbrown is a wonderfully soft two-toned fabric, perfect for that comfortable club chair you want to curl up in when you need a warm cup of tea and a good book.
And then there are moments when Fred reminds me of a piece of furniture - tall (in the groundhog world!), solid and probably sticking around for a long time! Gotta love Fred!
Stay tuned for more posts in the Color Series...!
“The world is your kaleidoscope, and the varying combinations of colors which at every succeeding moment it presents to you are the exquisitely adjusted pictures of your ever-moving thoughts.”
