Cool It!

Right now it is so hot in Phoenix that I am thinking of a cool color palette for our new home.

Blues, soft greens, and turquoise.

With woven blinds.

It might feel casual.

Or simply elegant.

I do want to bring in a bit of pattern.

I have dark furniture.


As well as light colored furniture.

Then there are my baskets and white slipcovered pieces.

While the palette looks fantastic in kitchens, I’m a bit unsure.

Although cool colors suppress your appetite, which I like!

Blue and green kitchen

But maybe it’s better in just a dining area.

I’d like a side order of Foo Dogs please.

I’ve had a blue bedroom for years.

It’s so cool and calm.

I haven’t tired of it yet.

Many decorators pair this color combination with silver.

But I myself like gold.

A touch of hot pink is pretty great too.

Love it all,
