Fabrics and Color...



I'm attracted to fabrics that have a calm and  peaceful feel....

My life is so busy that I want to come home, kick off my shoes and feel peaceful...

Its funny how colors effect you....
 Yes,   
its true....

Blues are calming and healing...

Red excites you and gets you going...

Yellow can make you hungry...


Think fast food restaurants! 

They're usually painted in reds and yellows...

Yep...
They want you to eat and go!










I was talking to a woman who was raised in California and had moved to Tahiti with her husband where they raised their family...

She was sharing with me that she had to learn the art of conversation...

When she borrowed something from a neighbor in Tahiti it was custom to sit and chat, have tea and then ask to borrow a hammer or tool of some kind... 
It was rude to borrow and go!

Our American life style is go, go, go...








We sometimes forget to stop and smell the roses... 

















When we get home we want our homes to be a sanctuary of peace and a place of comfort... 















But, we also want to have some fun! 



















This fabric has blues for a calm feel...
 but, a little red for excitement... 


















The more blues you add to it the calmer the feel...

But, if you add more reds, your room is going to have a fun feel... 


Every room in my home has a little blue.....

But, there are different combos of colors in each room.... 

Do the colors you live with effect you?

What colors are you attracted to?
Or
Does every room in your home have a different color combo?
