Today’s podcast episode is all about how to keep from getting overwhelmed when you’re shopping for home decor things.
This post was originally written in 2017, but I’m sharing it again today, because I love the idea of a color of the year. Let me explain. Do you ever notice the Panetone Color of the year thing. Honestly I don’t pay much attention to it. This year it’s Greenery. I actually like the color, but it’s not MY color of the year.
My color of the year is lavender. That’s right. I think we should all be able to select our own color of the year. And who’s telling us we can’t? The Spode tureen above is gorgeous in person! I love all of the plum hues.
So today I am showing you how I added lavender just using dishes. I do love a pretty plate. As you can see I’ve added lavender plates to my plate rack.
These are antique dishes mostly from Holland, but some of the dishes are French.
I don’t really care so much where they are from. I just like ‘pretty’.
Some of the lavender or purple is more red and some of it is more blue. I like all of it.
I bought the bowl below without a lid and with a missing handle. I don’t care, it’s still pretty.
I found some purple salvia blooming in my yard so I added it to my table. Yes I know it’s January, but I’m in Houston, so it’s been pretty warm here.
So what is YOUR color this year? What color will you be adding? Do you pay attention to the Panetone color of the year?
