Aqua, Yellow and Green






It all began with this pretty little aqua pot, and the color had me hooked...I know many have used it for a long time and of course a popular color in the 50's..
You see we have this mossy green sofa (see post below) and I have always had a hard time adding color with it, well at least color that I like. I am loving the bits of aqua and yellow and feel that they live in harmony with this sofa that I must keep for at least a couple more years....uggg! My 21 year old neice was visiting during a break from University and I welcomed a fresh set of eyes and she is one decor diva and a great DIYer. She pulled this end table together for me, I really can't take much credit, she covered a couple of old icky books in this beautiful scrapbooking paper and the lamp was a $2 yard sale find that I threw a burlap shade on. Im really enjoying these soft calm colors.
