Cool Colors


It would be true to say

that in my home,

blue and white and I

can’t seem to part ways.

I even patterned the design of my blog,

(upon the recommendation of my middle daughter),

upon the idea of a blue and white

porcelain piece.


But when dark pink enters the


I can hardly stand it. 


years ago

when the experts said our best personal

colors were based on seasons?


I am a winter-

as in cool colors.


What are you?

Laura, I love blue and white too, and witht hose pink flowers added, that vignette on your sideboard is gorgeous! I hope you won't mind that I "borrowed" a photo from your blog for my post today. Please let me know if you want me to remove it. laurie

You have such good taste!

Hi Laura,
Blue and white is very pretty especially with that vibrant pink! While I don't use blue and white in decor for myself I do buy my mother pretty pieces. It's fun! I did see roosters in blue and white at Burlington Coat Factory the other day. Not sure if you're a rooster lover like so many others. Those blue and white roosters did tempt me though. lol

I don't remember what season I am. It's either summer or winter. They're similar colors though.

I love your blue and white, and the vignette with the red flowers are stunning Laura. I'd love to have your collection to go with mine. lol. Kidding, I don't think another piece would fit in anywhere! Thanks again for showing us lovely posts. Luv-Loretta

Tracey said...

Oh, I'm an autumn,,, but love all colors and black and white... I can't imagine not having something black in a room!

Marigene said...

Another winter...your blog header is stunning, Laura.

Guess! By the way, what was that whole color/season campaign in make-up called???I believe it was circa 1985??

Theresa said...

I am a mixture of all seasons:) Love your colors! Have a blessed evening, HUGS!

Sarah said...

Laura, your white and blue is gorgeous. I recently pulled my group of blue and white group out to enjoy for the spring. I have white geraniums in some of mine, but love the pink accents. ~ Sarah

Deb said...

I had my colors done years ago but can't remember what season I am. I tend to paint in light colors that are inspired by the sea.

NanaDiana said...

I am a Fall/Spring...they couldn't decide! But I love your blue and white combo and throw that rosy tone in there and I am sunk-beautiful!!! xxoo Diana

Pondside said...

Blue and white - nothing better - but of course a shot of pink is always welcome - and a pale yellow wall to set it all off.....perfection.

Donna Reyne' said...

I love your blue and white color palette and totally agree about the certain shade of pink! It calls my name on occasion as well!

Olive said...

Ditto to Pondside's comment!

Lea @ CiCis Corner said...

I think I'm a winter/autumn mix. I like the softer hues but have touches of "splash" mixed in. Always enjoy stopping by! Blessings!

June said...

Laura I honestly don't know what season I am, but I gravitate to pastels like pink and aqua and light blues.
That reflection in your mirror is gorgeous!!!!!

And to answer the question you asked me in your comment...I think I am going to create a garden blog,(even though it will be open to all, the comment thingy will be disabled) but it will be pretty much a weekly log of what I accomplish in my Idaho 5000 ft above sea level zone 4 garden. I want to do this mainly because it will be my garden diary and I can keep track from year to year what I get accomplished. Then every year I can have it put to book form for me to keep so that when I get too old to garden I can sit and remember the good loe days.LOL!

I loved your previous post sooo much!

I enjoy browsing through your blog and love the photos.

CHERI said...

I've never been a blue person but my friend Vicki loves the blue and white and has a nice collection. I'm a WINTER...or at least that's what they told me years ago when I got COLOR ANALYZED. I love bright colors and look best in reds, hot pinks, oranges, etc. I decorate with bright colors too. I've often thought of changing to neutrals like those all-white photographs in magazines...but then I think that would definitely NOT be ME!!!

I love the colors, but I can't decide where I stand. I love blue and white as well as black and white too.

I remember getting my "color" done back in the late 1980's.... I am a winter also... and my favorite color roses are those beautiful hot pink ones like your photos...

Unknown said...

Hi there....what a BEAUTIFUL blog. I love blue and white too....and the pops of hot pink! OH MY!!!! lOVELY! Just wanted to say "hi" to a fellow Texas blogger....Happy Spring Ya'll!

Long ago I got my colors "done" and they said "fall"...but I'm thinking more SPRING! I LOVE you can tell by my blog title, Susan's Colorful Life. Come by and see me sometime. :)

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Laura, I can't live without my blue and white either! I have been seeing a lot more blue in decorating magazines lately.

Holly said...

The company was called Color Me Beautiful, I think. My mother always refers to her "colors" and it drives me crazy. So 80s! :)
