aqua + red {love}

December 1st | blog friends, decorating

lately i am so drawn to red and aqua!

we have touches of it all over the house. and it’s so inspiring.

we’re offering gift wrap in checkout now–aqua with velvet ribbon.

so pretty!

i bought these apples the other day and love the contrast with my aqua bauer bowl.

oh my. these petal pushers from the pleated poppy are waaaay to sweet.

and when i paired them with my red sweater i got 10 million compliements.

okay, maybe not 10 million–but a lot!

you can see more petal pushers HERE.

and we have a few little bird’s nests around the house with ornaments instead of eggs.

easy holiday decorating!

what’s your favorite color combo right now?

  9. Cait says:

    I’ve (unintentionally) decorated my new flat in a combination of purples and greens. The walls are painted a very pale lilac and accents of other purples as well as a variety of greens are all over.

    OH, I wish I had seen this earlier this week. I just went out and bought all black and white prints for our Christmas paper…with the idea of using bright color ribbons….now I’m thinking this is soo pretty I may have to replan my wrapping plans!

    I’ve decorated me home in Evergreen and Khaki – with a mix of Cranberry Red. Is that too cliche for a Christmas theme? Another color combo I love is Tangerine and darker blue hue. Really enjoyed this post, Lisa!

    I have been wanting a red cardi for awhile now and this photo of you confirmed it!

    I just found your blog today but immediately subscribed!

    Well I have to say this is my favorite color combo right now and it is all over my apartment. jsut added the combo to the bedroom have red bedspread –painted an old chest of drawers red first, topped with aqua and then distrested it perfecto… and it coat 8.oo total because the furniture was free…

    Thanks for all your inspiring ideas

  20. That color combo has been a favorite of mine for a couple of years now. It is the colors I chose to brand my handmade business with! But throw in a little mustard and gray with those two colors and my heart sings!

    I have that same turquoise bauer bowl…mine have lemons in them. And I need another teal petal pusher…two look way cuter together than just one on it’s own!

  21. Kathy says:

    love your packaging! This is my favorite color combo, too. It is just happy. I am headed out to put JOY on a doormat! love your jewelry and blog!

  22. Susan says:

    Lately it’s pale greens and blues, but I do love green, red and gold (not the metallic kind). Browns are nice…
    geesh, I shoulda just said ALL. 😉

    I love red and aqua too! We made red and pale blue (also nice) the color scheme for our wedding. It was loosely Chicago-themed decor, and red, white and pale blue are the colors of the Chicago flag!
