colour crush - red

red moodboard

I've never been much of a red person but my recent thrifted rug has me thinking about the possibility of adding some red accents in my home.

Whether it be a bright red or deeper crimson, I just love how it looks mixed with blue, black and of course bright white.  Below are some of my favourite inspiration photos or red done right. - Amy

colour crush - chartreuse

How fun is this colour?  The past week I have been trying to bring Spring into my home and that means plants, bright flowers and fun accessories.  Sometimes all you need is a small pop of colour to update your space and perk things up!

Here are a few of my favourite inspiration photos:

colour crush - blood orange

blood orange As a child, my grandma would buy huge oranges and she would chop them up in perfect wedges for me to devour (usually in minutes). This is probably why oranges are one of my favourite fruits. The colour, texture and scent of a sweet orange brings back fond memories. - Amy

They say orange is uplifting and rejuvenating and I'd have to agree!tangerine

Are you an orange person? What shades of orange do you love?
