"" JAMIE SAYS DREAM: Colour inspiration

Colour inspiration

I'm trying to choose colours for my living room, and these necklaces from Not Tuesday inspires me. (Collage by Wit & Delight)


I live in a rental, I don't have much money and my son has the only bedroom in the flat = I have my bed in the living room. But I still want to make it cosy! The problem is that I am lazy when it comes to fixing things at home and that I can't decide which colours and style I should go for. I like so much! But, as I said, I don't have much money so I have to be practical as well. I get tons of inspiration from blogs and magazines but most of it stays in my mind. Time for a change!

Ok, the palette above contains both "base colours" grey, white and beige and accent colours red, turquoise  and mustard yellow. I have to live with my old red Falsterbo chaise longue from Ikea for now, so I have to get red in to the palette.

This is my on a budget wish list - to be combined with white, grey and neautrals. Click for larger image!



1. Candle holders/Ljuslyktor  - Lagerhaus
2. 2012 Calender/Kalender 2012 - Snug
3. Signs numbers/Skyltar siffror - Åhléns
4. Necklaces/Halsband - Not Tuesday
5. Corduroy cushion/Manchesterkudde - Lagerhaus
6. Cushion cover/Kuddfodral - Mia & Stich on Etsy
7. Grey cushion/Grå kudde - Åhléns
8. My old Falsterbo chaise longue from Ikea
9. DIY: yellow knobs/Gula väggknoppar via Hvite tulipaner and Cloud/Moln via Seventy Tree

Looks quite bright... but it is to be combined with white, grey and neutrals!
Will I stick to this and get my living room in better shape?


Some interiors in these colours:

Via Room  and serve



Via Style at home
Via Plenty of Colour



Via French by Design



So many different hues of these colours!

Choosing among different options is difficult. For the girl in my Daily dose of qurkiness too! (Needed a black and white photo after all the bright colours).

Tack för dina kommentarer! Kul att ha hittat hit till dig. :) Jag återkommer med receptet på linsgrytan i veckan och skulle jag mot förmodan glömma så påminn mig gärna!

Ha en fin vecka!

Hvite tulipaner sa...

Se der ja, knaggene jeg lagde:)
Det var veldig enkelt å lage, og så er det jo dekorativt! Og man kan jo velge og vrake blant ulike farger. Jeg kjøper forresten fargene mine på Søstrene Grene, eller på Panduro.

Herlig collage, med nydelige farger!
Når man har en hvit base er det veldig enkelt å tilføre noen fargerike detaljer. Jeg er helt hektet på gult og litt lilla og turkis, men har begynt å like grønt, blått og orange i det siste også.
Farger gjør meg glad:)
Klem
