Color inspiration

My walls are yellow. You remember my freak out, right? Well, since we've moved in and I've lived with the yellow, I've fallen in love. It's not overly brillant, and the hardwoods really tone things down. The cunundrum now is what to pair with yellow. I think white is a given. Yellow and gray is one of my favorite pairs, but with the trim painted an off white and the couch falling somewhere between tan and green, I think there'd just be too many competing neutrals. Which leads me to my next color contemplation: navy. Yellow and navy.

I can hear the country wagon wheels spinning in your head, but before you do, take a look at my inspiration. Done just right, navy and yellow wouldn't have to been country. I would just have to strike the right balance, which means bringing in bold patterns and crisp clean lines.

  1. I think warm colors like a wine read and olive green would be nice...to match the plates I got you...

  2. I like the red and green idea, but I don't want that in the "living room." Can't wait to put up my plates. I still need to find the right size so I can get them up!
