It's a colorful world!

Continuing on the subject of color... we are ready to move into our Appalachian Morning home...so ready. Choosing color was a big part of planning; planning for the years we will spend there and how we want each room to "feel." The color and form/lines create the mood. What sort of mood should each room have and how will those rooms integrate to create "home"?

Swatches have been studied. Decisions have been made.
Dining/living room: creme, deep red, deep gold, forest green, teal, navy. We are drawing from the colors in a Marc Chagall reproduction that we love. Then, in the adjacent family room, the same colors will carry, but with a more informal and also modern look.

The kitchen was a no-brainer as I love blue and yellow kitchens and Mark likes french country. The master bedroom, chocolate, pale blue, forest green... My office, I want a bright green wall for some reason. All four walls or just one.... Stay tuned!

I would love to hear what colors inspire you. What in your environment encourages creativity; makes you want to craft or paint or sew?

The rich, dark, shiny colors are my current favorites. Won't dinner at the Williams' new home be an artistic infusion? Who will inspire whom? Mark, Janice, Marc: terrific artists, food concoctioneers, poets, whimsical producers--a whirlpool of colors, shapes, and aromas.

Simon votes for cerelian blue.
