Aqua + Linen + Rust


I'm always on the hunt for interesting color combinations, and lately I am taken with this one. It seems just right for late summer/early fall and even inspired me to pair an orange linen skirt with an aqua silk top for a wedding recently. Hopefully it was as cute in person as it was in my head. Anyway.


If I were turning it into a room, I would start with this smart sofa and add a nice, long lumbar pillow in Windsor Smith's Riad.


A pair of these cuties in Saffron Linen would sit opposite the sofa, with a sleek table in between.

** Apologies for my recent prolonged absence(s). I have still been reading my favorite blogs, but the desire/inspiration to write my own has temporarily been lacking. I think I might be getting my groove back and look forward to reconnecting with you all.

The colour combo are awesome! And it's amazing what a difference an accent pillow makes to a couch!

Love this combo! I could see it in a nursery too. Could you imagine that chair as a rocker? So pretty!

This is the color scheme of the "retro ethnic" Auburn house! :)

I love those colors together! Wishing I could twinkle my nose and that table would appear in my living room.

Those colors are great together, definitely a favorite. This has me brainstorming fall decorating projects...

The yarn colors are the colors that I would like to do my nursery in.
