Touches of Blue


I LOVE beige!  And white and stone.  My house is a home full of neutrals - neutral walls, flooring, curtains, couches, etc.  The reason I love the beige backbone to my home, is that it allows me to often, quickly and easily change the accent colours.  
 
An early 2014 trip to the local charity shop inspired me to take up a bit of a blue theme! Emerald Green was so last year.
This cute kitsch pair cost R30 (less than $3), and I just had to take them home.  That's the beauty of charity shopping.  It allows me to try out tastes and schemes that I would not like to spend a fortune on.  And when I am over blue ... and figurines, I can take them back from whence they came!
   
The little blue jug also landed in my basket as well as the brown porcelain doggie.   I know he's not blue, but he adds a strong contrast! Together they make a happy little family on the right hand side of my mantlepiece.
On the lefthand side - well I'll tell you about that tomorrow :-)
