I have seen some bloggers use some sort of Random Number Generator to select Giveaway winners. Here at Roses and Rust, we are much more sophisticated...... we pick the names out of a hat! The lucky winners of the two double Decorex tickets are Vanessa Witte and Nadine Raine. Please contact me asap, so I can tell you where to collect your tickets.
Now on to today's post... it is no secret that I love neutrals and while they look beautiful just being neutral, they also create the perfect backdrop when one wants to introduce a bit of colour into an interior.
Have a look at these two homes where just one or two predominant colours have been added to a neutral scheme. The great thing is, that if you get tired of the colour or just feel like a change, it is so easy to just whip away a cushion here or a vase there without going to any great expense.
The first home uses a fairly strong red and softer shades of green.
The second home below uses pretty shades of blue and turquoise added to a neutral background.
I used the words "favourite" and "colour" a few times in this post and every time the American-made spell check tells me I should spell them "favorite" and "color". But here in SA and the UK, we spell them "favourite" and "colour". I wonder why, when they crossed to Atlantic to the New World, many years ago, the "U" got lost. Perhaps a U-Boat got them?
Have a lovely week
Till next time
