I've spent a good bit of time trying to figure out where this blogger, Vibeke Design, not of the US, hails from. But have not been successful thus far. If you know, please say.
My point is to show you that many decorators choose to have a white canvas on which to display their array of colors. This is one of them. And she does it quite successfully.
A white slate.
For those of you who think it has to be an either/or decision, just take a look at Vibeke Design. It doesn't have to be either a blanket of white and neutrals, or a bevy of color. This proves that you can have both.
Now we shall watch her add the lovely combination of red and white to her home and gardens.
Color is merely our hearts way of expressing ourselves.
On her blog are the words..."You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have."
A bright red door says something about the person residing inside, don't you think?
So on this very first day of a new year, 2014, let us color lovers continue to embrace what makes our eyes shine in delight. To let our unique personalities shine through in every colorful nook and cranny of our homes. And to remember that there are no rules.
Just follow your heart when it comes to color.
The talented woman behind this beautiful home.
Happy New Year!
