Colorful summer

Color is ... pure emotion!

There is something about the combination of pink, yellow and turquoise that makes my heart sing. Its a long weekend here in germany, the sun is shining, a nice wind is blowing - and i'm so in the mood for colors! These fabulous interiors styled with lots of pretties from the new rice denmark collection really gets me going. 

And - to tell you the truth, i'd love to get all crazy and cover our walls in pink, yellow, turquoise and violet! Since i'm living with 3 men (and one tomcat), i'll rstrict myself to canvases though, and maybe one or the orther burst of color in the garden ;)

Have a sparkling may weekend lovelies, lots of sunny vibes from me!

  2. I love vibrant colours, so wonderful :)) My kitchen is bright turquoise and I love it, makes me smile :)) I understand about the boys, we are three girls against one boy, but my husband puts his foot down to too much colour, he prefers light colours. But, we compromise :) Have a sun filled fun weekend doll!! xox

    Oh my heart, I am so late but school has taken the wind out of my sails!!! It is so refreshing to see your kind comments on my post and to finally come to visit my dear friends. THESE COLORS are making my heart sing too! I am also very moved by color. I have the FONDEST memories from last summer making the discovery of my love for aqua/turquoise and using this color in my studio. Every morning during summer vacation as the morning sun would rise and shine into my studio is when I would be doing my blog visiting. So these summer colors remind me so much of YOU and other blogging friends! And the countdown is ON: I only have until JUNE 8 to go and then I am completely DONE with my teaching job. I cannot wait to create and write more. This weekend is also a long one for us as we celebrate MEMORIAL DAY here in the states. And you have a long weekend too? ENJOY IT ALL! And you live in a MAN'S WORLD, even a male cat! YIKES! Lots of energy there!!!

    Sending you sunshine and many hugs dearest friend! Anita
