Summer Colour

 After spending the entire fall and winter in monochromatic black outfits I feel like summer is an entirely new world, and I'm a new person in that world.
It's at the very least a mindset shift!
Decorating the garden, the porch and the house has all been an exercise in colour flow this spring.  I like to make sure the colours of the flowers, dishes and linens I'm using flow together yet they need to be vibrant and summery.  I guess it's a decorative colour story, and it's not dissimilar to the colour story I'm wearing these days.

It's not black!
