Colors Of Mother Nature


We all can take lessons from Mother Nature herself.... If you notice nothing Mother Nature does matches but they blend together in such a beautiful way... So why not think about it and do what she does... I love the colors of the soils ... I have always love the smell of the earth when freshly plowed and being turned over... The colors of browns, caramels blended with creamy whites are perfection in my eyes.Maybe simply stated but oh so lovely. Then the blend of textures in these shades such as laces to burlap's and heavy textures melts me just like caramel.. All these mixed together with collections of crazing ironstone or aged silver turns my head and creates layers of loveliness. While working with Mother Nature don't forget the rules of three. I do think to have the home... oh so charming feel it has to appear it has been there forever.... I have entered many very lovely new homes.... very, very, lovely but for myself personally it doesn't have the feel I love... When we looked at condos awhile back the were quite nice but all new and not with a feel they had been loved forever... With the help of Mother Natures beauty, I could most likely achieve it by faux painting, aging, and veining... Mother Nature herself ages objects to the touches I love....

I just love what you say about the beautiful effect of caramel -- it has long been one of my favorite "flavors" to see- on walls, in furnishings- and like you, I am also melted like caramel from its warm loveliness. Thankyou so much for showing us your home ~ it is so PRETTY! Katie
