Objects In Color

2/07/2012



I am so excited to be participating in Brynn's color series today! The theme is blue and gold and frankly they are two of my very favorite colors together. Lately it seems I want to paint everything gold (I am resisting because I have a feeling it would look terribly gaudy). But, aha! When you pair it with a lovely shade of royal or navy blue it is beautifully complimented, don't you think? It makes me think a little bit about being on a yacht, not that I've been on a yacht, but I imagine it would be glorious and I imagine I would be wearing the above ensemble and would be holding a glass of Sauvignon Blanc as the sun sets over the bay. Hey I'm dreaming, okay?

P.S. I took a cue from Brynn and looked around my house for blue and gold, the above photo is what I came up with. As random as it is, I think it looks rather pretty. :) The bottom picture was taken by Matt in New Zealand. It's called "Reflection."

I've recently become obsessed with gold, and paired with navy they compliment each other so well.

Love that blue dress!

I'm so into navy right now...but that could have a lot to do with the fact that we live to close to the beach! I'm getting into gold a little more these days so perhaps this will be a litte inspiration for the future place ;)
