Now that my dining room walls and trim are white, I have a lot more freedom to use color in a way that doesn't overwhelm the small space. A swatch of print fabric is perfect for the purpose. A tablecloth perhaps.
Chair cushions. Or in this case, a vintage curtain panel slung over the shutters. A pretty homespun cloth decorates the back of my vintage high chair.
I find that I tire easily of strong color in a room, and need to change it up easily when I'm ready. And white lets you take any color path you want for a colorful change of scene.
I love this big rose print, but its burgundy red and deep green is not used anywhere else in the house. Perfect for the lawn or patio when the weather warms up, it will cheer us up here for a bit in the meantime.
I love the contrast against the crisp white towel with the wide lace border.
A hazy day offers a little back lighting for a frilly vignette. Flowers of course, but also a bit of a ruffled and pin-tucked hem. The metal cloche gives another suggestion of life in the garden.
A little worked bodice of handkerchief linen hanging in the window is as pretty as any flower bouquet!
It all feels like a fresh breath of spring!
I wish the garden would bloom as easily. . . .
So glad you stopped by!
