Colour me happy

{Image 1, 2}

I love colour (if you haven't already guessed!). One of the ways I have achieved colour in my home, short of painting my walls which sadly isn't an option as I rent, is with fabric. Cushions, throws, table cloths, even framing fabrics! Even though I seem to be endlessly buying things [at next to nothing, so I buy more of course! ;-)] I am still amazed at how long it takes to build a look. It really doesn't happen over night! Loving this room above, a perfect example of how I'd like my place to look and also loving the colourful china!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, we had a really sunny mild day yesterday. I wore a dress and small cardi and was perfectly warm, wow!!! Maybe summer is upon us....?



  1. wow you got to wear a dress??? so jealous as i'm freezing here..loving those colors too as it always puts a smile on my face especially the color aqua xxx

  2. Love these colors! I agree that color is so important.

    I am so jealous that you have summer to look forward too! I hope we can squeeze out a few more months here in CA!

  3. I LOVE colour brightens up anyone's day. Sadly though, not enough people use it and stick withe the black and white at the moment!

  4. I am so with you on the colour thing Anna...bring it on. In fact I bought two hot pink and black persian rugs this weekend...completely OTT and I love it! Can't believe you wore a was miserable in Canberra :(

  5. I'm not a big fan of too many bright colors in my house. However...if i see it in somebody else house iloveit. Just too chicken i guess. Check out my old VW camper, that's where i will use some colors. Have a happy, happy week.

  6. Oh I wish I was sometimes more adventurous with colour!! I seem to stick to the neutrals with the odd splash here or there!! Love your inspiration. Christine xo

  7. These pictures are soo pretty! I love all the color! I also like your tips on how to bring color in when you are renting (which is what I do too!). I hope you had a great weekend! xo

  8. Gorgeous colourful images! I always like to add colour through accessories so I can mix and change things around when I want a new look. Glad you could enjoy some sunshine over the weekend x

  9. yes the weather on the weekend was wonderful wasn't it! A light at the end of the freezing winter tunnel :)
    Love that pic. Colour on the blank white canvas of a room is great!

  12. Oh that room is so colourful and makes me happy, it works so well too. I too love colour, I hate when I'm clothes shopping in the winter months and it's all dreary dull dark colours in the shops. Not good! Thanks for sharing.

    All things nice...

  13. What a happy room! I love the pink table and all of those bowls!! xo

  14. Hi there, I just came across your blog and I'm glad. I love the colour combination in this post, nice.

  15. Great minds think alike! I just did a post also on colorful interiors! I think a burst of color is so nice.

  16. I love how fun and vibrant these rooms are! I prefer to live in a softer palette, but I wouldn't mind visiting bright color. :)
