I know these are supposed to be on Thursdays, but I’m practicing patience with my posts! I am trying to put a lot more time into them so that you will actually enjoy what I have to say, and will want to come back! So here is some color therapy for your weekend!

This week’s “Color Therapy” is inspired by the portfolio of one of my Twitter contacts, Tobi Fairley.  I am loving the fresh, bright color palettes lately, especially paired with crisp, classic patterns, as seen in the gorgeous photo below.

If I had the guts (or the cash) I would put one of these in my living room in a crisp navy blue and white. Love it!!

If I was to paint a room in this palette, I might start with navy walls with bright, white trim, crown moulding, and a chair rail, or two navy walls and two white walls, all with yellow accents throughout the room. Or navy and white stripes would look gorgeous! Yellow is always a nice paint choice as well, nice and sunny!
