Today is National coffee day and I do love good coffee. I've had my Kreuig coffee maker break down but the company is very good about replacements. The taste of my fresh brewed Columbian is delicious. I have devoted a few scrap pages to this love of mine in the past so no more for now.
Still in my jammies. Cal is off golfing. Slept in and having a slow start to my day. Love late summer, early fall, not a fan of winter but spring comes early here and maybe I can take a trip down to South America for Carnivale!
I wrote a reply to the recent PRT episode http://www.paperclipping.com/prt085-the-many-faces-of-neutral/ about neutrals. (If you came here from there I guess you can stop reading now, LOL!)
Funny how I opened my Martha Stewart Living for September to page 150 randomly to page 150 and there is a decorating article on painting the edges of doors a bright accent color. "A vivid pink or citrus stripe is also easily tempered by a neutral base color such as gray, or a deep shade such as indigo." So, it is a trend to use a base of something low key with more vibrant in home decor and fashion as well as scrapbook pages. You'll note that Martha did not refer to navy (deep indigo) as a neutral. I agree with May (Flaum) - a staple, a classic, not a neutral. Love the color combos that went with this magazine article a magenta (hot lips by Benjamin Moore) paired with a medium warm gray (cement gray, MS); Mimosa by MS paired with Navy (Hudson Bay by Benjamin Moore) and a luscious gold called Melon from MS paired with a light cool gray (Elephant's breath by Farrow-Ball). All great inspiration for pages.
