having decided that i think i need a little bit of a 'palette' to my home, (not JUST white), i have decided to go with these colors:
pale, sagey/baby/50's-style blue
chartreusey-gross '60's-style green (are you digging my color descriptions yet?)
pops of mustard (maybe?)
anyway, i decided that a few days ago, and stumbled upon this fabric that pretty much sums up my color palette, and is reminiscent of 50s and 60s style patterns! it's "dandelion clocks" by sanderson, and it's just my style. i'm having a hard time finding it here in atlanta, but hopefully my search won't be forever-long. i would love to have a couple of pillows made with it, or use it as a drapery/roman shade fabric. what do you think?
i also really love this photo from sanderson's website. i'm thinking the thing i like about it is that it's using mostly large pieces in a small space; something i think i have decided is the best bet when decorating a small space. i'm not sure if this is some kind of decorating rule, but in my brain it makes sense. less clutter, more quality. what is your take on this? since i have been in the poorhouse, saving for this annoying downpayment (hehe), i have mostly spent my free time perusing design magazines, blogs and books, and have come to this conclusion. i really would like to know thoughts on this. i think my tendency is to over-clutter space, when really the amount of open space should be balanced by the amount of items in the space.
