Hello! Hope you all had a happy weekend. We have apparently moved in summer here in California and spring just got bypassed. I had a very exciting last week (coming next), so I spent some down time this weekend working on my home. I noticed I've gotten this thing where I keep adding teal or yellow pieces and they look quite good together. Bright and cheering you know?
I have had browns and neutrals in my family room so added a few pillows...
Seemed to do the job of brightening things for spring (or SUMMER as it seems.)
I moved them from the living room below, where there are pops of teal, and neutrals.
Also a few cellos hanging around.. My son!
I love this heart pillow I got a while back. This yellow leopard I found a TJ Maxx.
The floral one has been in my closet of rotating pillows for a while..
(You know what I mean some of you? I love changing pillows out.)
Just got my C Home. Do you subscribe? The C Home comes out a few times a year and is a big inspiration for California home decor. That is Diane Keaton on the cover and her beautiful home is in this issue too.
This month had the Russian Hill Penthouse of Susan Swartz! What pretty hues and can't beat her view!
A glimpse at the gorgeous colors in this month's fashion section. C Magazine is wonderful and now my favorite. It's got design, travel and just a lot of good stuff. I don't hardly buy magazines anymore, but it's a treat when this arrives.
Is it just me or is teal in so many other lovely things right now?
Teal and yellow also figure in these Liberty Edition Vans! They would be perfect with shorts and jeans and I cannot resist a floral, especially a Liberty one. Being a California girl, I'll always love Vans.
Then yesterday, I got an email that these Caspian Ceramics got marked down at Pottery Barn! I want to add one to the colors here at home. I bought a similar one there last year in a cream color and it looks great in the kitchen too with flowers. More teal!
Lastly I love this J. Crew shirttail blouse, a shell almost, I bought in Sherwood green. This deep teal hue looks pretty with so much and I think this color flatters many people. It's nice for summer and a layering piece right now with a light sweater like I have here. Yes I still wear them over the shoulder on occasion too...
So have you found teal or any other color this year to be compelling? This happens to me every season.
Back tomorrow with more beauty news! Have a good week.
