Ooh, have I got a treat for your weary monday-morning eyes!
The latest Crushing on Color post,
the series where your favourite fabulous design bloggers share their favourite color of the moment with you...
Today's guest post is from the lovely and very talented Jennifer of Rambling Renovators.
If you haven't been to her blog (where have you been?!!)
you really need to head over.
It's chocked full of adventures in reno, and life,
as Jennifer relates her experiences renovating her Toronto home with her husband,
and often shares touching and funny bits about her adorable little daughter, Chloe....
In fact, she's so creative and charming,
that Nate Berkus had her on his show... need I say more?
When Anne-Marie asked me to participate in her Crushing On Colour series,
I knew I had to write about my latest crush... coral.
Now this colour may be "hot" right now,
with a pinky-coral called "Honeysuckle" having been selected Pantone's Color Of The Year for 2011,
but don't mistake this hue as a flash in a pan.
Coral is a bold colour but is versatile too.
It can take on many a persona, soft and elegant, vintage, worn, modern, or fresh...
Design by Massucco Warner Miller
It plays well with other attention-seeking colours like navy or chartreuse
But I like coral best when paired with grey.
The cool grey makes coral more grown up, less pinky and more orangey.
A sophisticated blend. Playful but not too sweet.
Thanks Anne-Marie for allowing me to share my colour crush!
Thank you, Jennifer!
Coral is on my radar right now, as well!
I like it well-saturated and a little heavy on the pink.
The perfect coral palette has got to be that last living room,
a juicy coral, pale grey, a warm white and gold - heavenly :)
Thank you for sharing your color crush with us,
and, as always, I'm looking forward to seeing your next post!
(and I apologize about the teeny writing in a few spots - blogger does not like me today :)
ps. got some projects for Tash's room going this weekend,
found a gem at a yard sale,
and had a wicked brainstorm for a display solution -
will show you later in the week!
Happy Monday! x
