Colour Cocktail: Plum and Apple

Friends, grab your paintbrushes and throw on a fabulous pair of overalls because it's time to strive forwards and embrace the bold adventurer inside of you! This cocktail is perfect for those of us who like to dance the night away, but is also good for the traditionalists amongst us who like a cheeky flirt with fun every now and then. Belong to the former group? Well, you'll have no problem embracing a vibrant green coat stand or going all out with the retro wallpaper. If, however, you're lifestyle is more high tea parties than all night parties, then keep things more formal with a flash of bold. To add a little flair to your scheme try adding a purple mount to one of your favourite prints or even a luxe throw over your best armchair. Either way, this cocktail will bring a bundle of happiness to your space.

  9. For some reason I like each color on their own, but not together. It's like they're equally as strong and are competing with each other.

    That being said, the wallpaper is super cute

  23. Mr. great taste, I have 13 etchings from the 18th c. with "egos" just like the man in the frame above the white chest. You just inspired me to add a purple matting and voila --the look is both classy and edgy! What a great idea!

    Happy weekend my friend.
