Hot Colors!

First, I have to start by saying that I love decorating with a white and a pale color palette (in fact I did a post about it here).

That being said . . .

I just received my Romantic Homes color issue and I’ve been pouring over its hot color for 24 hours. There is no denying that happy colors make you feel happy! I think this is the best Romantic Homes Color issue they’ve ever put out. This issue features Crown and Crumpet a marvelous new tea salon that has opened in San Francisco. The photo shoot in this tea salon is eye popping, WOW!! It inspired me to create little mini-vignettes based on my favorite hot colors.



The gorgeous silk ribbon rose pictured above was a gift from lovely Heather of Pretty Petals.







If you don’t have a subscription to Romantic Homes you should run out and get this issue. You won’t regret it!

The pictures are gorgeous...my favorite is the blue :-) I, too, tend to stick with a light color palette, although I love the energy of bright, vibrant colors. Perhaps, this spring, I will step out of my comfort zone!

I LOVE your colorful photos Nancy! They are so creative, they should be in a magazine!! You are so talented and you have such an incredible eye for style and composition. I'm going to get a copy this weekend, sounds wonderful.

I'm having a Romantic Candlelight Tea for Valentine's Day (I'll be posting on 2-13-09) for visitors to enjoy. Most of the things I love are packed up also so I made do with what I could put together. It was a fun challenge. I'd be happy if you would like to join in the challenge or you can just come and enjoy my tea!

Just the little colour perk up I needed on a cold winter morning! Can't wait to get my copy of Romantic Homes.

Too bad it isn't available up here. When I hear positive stories like this one, and see gorgeous eye candy too, like your photos, I'll buy one. With all those magazines stopping I 'd rather not take a subscription.

Dear Nancy,

We all need a few rainbows in our life…

I had to smile when I saw this post because I too spent yesterday looking at color as I was
planning my Easter table…
I know it’s only Feb. but I love Easter, it is one of my favorite Holidays…
I always start by picking my napkin colors; I think I will be using a pretty pink and a light lime green this year. So when I saw your pink and green picture I just smiled. I think I will have to pick up a copy of that magazine this weekend...

I met the lovely owner of the tea salon in LA last month. She is so lovely and their tea house sounds fabulous!
