Beach Week: Nantucket Cottage: Kaleidoscope of Happy

Yesterday we posted about small and minimal..
today we explore small with brilliant excess!

This cottage was featured in Country Living
and I never forgot it..
want to see why?!!

a hint of what lies within..














Anyone who paints their floor daffodil yellow is all right in my books :)
What's the trick to getting this huge range of color to live in harmony?
 Using colors with the same intensity - in this case, super-saturated hues.
Choose colors with the same amount of black and/or white
 in them and you can mix to your hearts content!

Clearly the cottage doesn't take itself to seriously,
which is lovely - I prefer relaxed decor at the beach..
but I'm curious - could you live with all that color?

til next time..
Pin It Now!
