Carefree colors are everywhere!

After buying lots of colorful flowers and topiaries for various gardens today, their happy colors put me in the mood to share these with you. It is somewhat ironic that I am always drawn to vibrant colors as my own home is rather neutral. I tend to put the focus on wonderful pieces and accessories so they can be changed seasonally or just on a whim.

The chair seats just p-o-p against the white. The various chairs lined up down the hall just draws you in.

These nesting bowls would be fun to cook with and would look great on the table. The coordinating spoons, scoops and mortar and pestle are darling.

This clematis bloom looks like it has velvet petals and showcases one of my favorite colors. My daughter named the color High Violet.

Love the color! Thanks, Pieter!

This painting of the French Topiary Gardens of the Eyrignac Manor was created for Pierre Frey (Pierre Frey fabrics) by Ramuncho de Saint Amand. It is the inspiration for his fabric named Les Jardins d"Eyrignac.
