Color Your World - Indoors {II}

- They packed a punch!  With their intensity and lusciousness, they filled our senses with vibrancy, at times shocking us with their audacity.

- Enticed we were by their softness, creating in us a sense of weightlessness. 

- Oh how they mixed and matched - boldly & beautifully, toned down,  contrasting & complementary - in ways perhaps that the mind had yet  to comprehend. 

- Showered we were with flowers, and our very core spoken to by the ancestral and native prints.



Yes indeed, the Spring/Summer 2012 trends landed with a bang!  True, trends are not timeless, but does that mean that you can't or shouldn't partake of the spoils?  Most certainly not!   Incorporating what's in vogue can be done either by going all out and embracing change on a larger scale:  













 Or in smaller doses, in which case you may be happier with pops of color here and there:










SOFT STROKES
Perhaps bold strokes are not your cup of tea,  and what you truly crave is a soothing palette?  Then it's really a matter of choice about which room(s) and how you'd like to create this mood.  






Painting the walls and using colored or  printed accessories achieves this effect.

 







Using colored tiles







MIXED PALETTE
Match to your own tune, and mix to your heart's desire .  Whether you do this by incorporating an accent color and furnishings that have mixed prints/patterns, or you choose to go for a muted tone, indulge your inner soul and come alive, or just be!  














FLOWER POWER
Burst alive!  Floral prints, or patterns are a great way to bring color into your home.  They can be used to create vibrancy,  calmness or even as conversation pieces.  Make use  of furniture, rugs, curtains or blinds and other accessories to achieve the mood you seek.

Whether all you want is to immerse your senses, and be surrounded by flowers













Or just have a touch of them... go ahead and indulge yourself.













GLOBAL ELEMENTS
Want a touch of the exotic in your home?  An ability to revel in aspects of a culture that you attracted to?  How?  By investing in furnishings and color that depict this element be it African, American,  Asian,  Australian or European.




African inspired:
Furniture (dark wood) & leather, wall art, picture frames 






Asian inspired wall covering from rice paper






Set a trend  - YOUR STYLE, YOUR HOME, YOUR WAY.  Be sure to share any pics and where you got your inspiration from.  Thanks!

Amazing! I guess the pink shade of the short portion of the wall made the blinds more charming as white is focusing the entire wall and room. Thanks for putting a cool idea.
