Hello from a snowy but very sunny Calgary!
Let me introduce our second baby boy Evzen - our sunshine - born at the end of March! His big brother is terrific and very proud.
We couldn't be happier!
Another (shorter than 9 months) idea how to bring the bright and happy inside your home is perhaps "with paint".
Considering that half of our house is north facing, we chose warm yellow for some areas. Falling in love with "danse du solei" by Benjamine Moore was easy and when surrounded by a suitable colour scheme, it can be one of the most stylish French country colours.
I meant to change our basement powder room from this yellow colour into soft powder pink, but I will keep the yellow scheme now(:
Liking these bathrooms:
Or these other spaces.... personaly, my advice is to use warm natural wood colours furniture (walnut) and soft whites and beiges as well as grays and adding a bit of blue, green, French pink .
Lots of these additional colours in contrast with the yellow walls will create more casual feel or vibrant and just a hint of them, small amount will produce a sophisticated feel that is a bit less country.
In our home, I chose a hint of blue-greens, French pinks and blues, majority of grays and beiges and natural wood tones of course (cherry and walnut). It is a lovely yellow that is not too orange or pale in any light ...day or evening.
Even just a table in soft yellow is great!
Or fun leather seating...
Even tiles are stunning.
Just love those walls..
Soft pallete and less additional colours...
More vibrant contrasts!
Yes we do have lots of gray walls in our home too and it is my personal favorite to combine yellow colour and grays!
Now I have the double sunshine ... my kids and the "danse du solei" walls.
Hope you are having a bright and shiny week like we do and enjoyed the colour fun with me!
