Fresh Color Palettes

green walls with botanical art
You can always use your "fave" color in varying shades...like this green here.

yellow living room with bay window and zebra rug
Lemonade and raspberries anyone?  Combining such bold colors with neutrals is always a great look!

blue, purple and white living room with white French doors and hydrangeas
When using a monochromatic color-scheme such as this, mix in lots of white to add interest to the room.

green living room with white fireplace and wood trim
Green again...what about this cottage look here.  Bright and bold, huh?

light brown wall and colorful pillows
Brown and blue remains a strong colorway.  Isn't this a relaxing room that you could just nestle down in.  I love mixing patterns in pillows on solid furniture pieces...and check out this lamp shade that adds some more pizzazz! 

brightly colored living room with yellow walls and green armoire
Pastel hues of green, blue and yellow make this a cozy setting for sure.  How about these other "pops" of color used here like orange and pink...LOVE it!

large window with modern furniture
I don't think I'll ever tire of clean lines and white...such a clean, fresh look!

mix and match pink
Pink and brown ... hum, a very sophisticated combo here, wouldn't you agree?  I love this chocolate triple gourd lamp too!

white cottage living room with floral pillow accents
Another all white room with the personality being added in with pillows...and of course, these lovely table accessories.  "Simply Irresistible" if my vote counts!

yellow and white living room with pink accents
Take a gander at all the lovely colors going on in this room.  Adding in some antique pieces is a sure way to add instant character too!

tangerine wall and round ottoman
With Tangerine Tango being the new color for 2012 this room might qualify since it's in the orange family.  Have you decided if you like or dislike this color yet?

Yellow always adds some sunshine...in any room!

Mix up Finishes
I simply love using navy, black and white together in a room.  It adds such drama to the feel of the room, yet it remains inviting.  How about this tiny little "pop" of red on the nightstand...see it?  Love it!

Platform bed
One of my "fave" color combos is turquoise, yellow, and pink (see the flowers?)...very soft and serene!

There...you have it...many fresh color schemes and ideas to start the new year off right.  Do YOU have a "fave" that you'd like to do in one of your rooms this year?  Which colors, which rooms?...we'd love to know.

Thanks for stopping by and...

Have a "Simply Irresistible" Day!
