Too Bad










I know there are people around that abhor a "pop of colour". Well, too bad.

Although I cringe a little at the term, when faced with an example like this home above, I really like the results. The bites of citrus are gorgeous.

And as for painting with chalkboard paint being over, when I looked at the image above, I thought "not by a long mile".

Well Jules I am going to unfashionable, because I always have, and always will, love a "pop of colour".

Caveat applies though: it has to be done well, as it is in all of your examples. Just a touch, with either lots of white or lots of dark grey/black, and it is a mighty thing.

Pop away, I say! Jane @ the girl in the brick house.

Have to say I agree too :) Pop of colour describes perfectly what it is. Just that. What a gorgeous space this is. Nicolex

Works for me too including the chalk wall. ;-)

Just thought I'd pop in and pop a comment in the box to the effect that this is a lovely home - there's an element of complexity or intricacy to it that means that the brigher colour accents aren't at all blatant. I'm just popping away again now.

I'd like to think people hate the phrase more than the idea of hints of color.

Maybe we should think of a new phrase?

This is wonderful imagery. Don't know which pic I like more, but with 2 young boys, color in the home is definitely your best friend. The deeper and richer, the better.
