Color Combinations

Are you someone that likes nature and natural things? Do you tend to get stuck in your decorating ambitions because you're not sure how to choose or combine colors?

Go out into your garden and pick things up that you like. Then raid your herbs and spices and start making a mess.

1. Take apart any flowers you picked. The reason for this is that it becomes easier for you to see the color of each part.

2. Make little piles of the herbs and spices on white paper.

3. Start laying the stuff you brought in from the garden next to the piles and see what wonderful combinations you can come up with.

The herbs and spices are fairly neutral and can represent your wood and paint. The garden items can be more layers of color and accent items.

  1. You're so dang smart. Love the spice and garden combos idea! When I'm big, I wanna not live in a box inside my head. :)
