I’m at a loss in the decorating category. Christmas decor is down, I don’t decorate inside for Valentine’s day but I did need a winter transition color to use before decorating for spring. I went to my pillow stash fist to see what I had that hasn’t been used, and while I was tossing pillows out looking for something new a Navy Blue pillow landed next to a Rust pillow and I said to myself, that’s it. I haven’t used that color combination before and it looked very pretty together.
Next I went into the kitchen to look through my dishes, runners, silverware, and dishcloths to find anything in navy and rust and here’s what I found. I can’t believe I haven’t used this color combination before in my home but I haven’t, so this will be the colors I’m using for the rest of winter.
I even have things to decorate the living room and bedroom so every room in the house will match. I decided to take notice the next day while out shopping and apparently navy blue is trending for 2017, Target and Homegoods both had displays in the decor area using navy blue. It seems to be paired with a salmon tone but I think rust is close enough. Who knew I was following a color trend and didn’t even know it?
I was just looking for something new to use that hadn’t already been done in our home. For some reason once all the Christmas stuff is packed away the place always looks so bare. I was ready for it to go though, to me it all feels like dust gatherers and it’s all so hard to clean around. I was happy to move furniture and give the floor a good mopping and dusting again.
I’ll share the living room with you next using my winter color combo. I need to share with you my pillow stash some day, it’s a department store on it’s own, but I do believe the cheapest was to get a new look is by using throw pillows.
