Color Crazed Interiors

Maybe it’s the fact that summer is coming to an end, but right now I’m hooked on bright colors. As evidenced by my striped blueberry punch popsicles and watercolor lunch bags from earlier in the week.

But I like my color does in small, more minimal amounts. So, I’ve rounded up some of the most cheerful interiors I could find this week – each infused with bright / bold accent colors, without overpowering the space.

1. (above) Pops of yellow + chartreuse from Inside Out

(Minimally) Color Crazed

2. Powder blue + orange from Dwell

3. Sunshine yellow and deep blue from Inside Out

4. All of the amazing colorful chairs and couches at Fig House from Emily Henderson

5. Colorful shelf accents from BHG

DIY // Watercolor Lunch Bags for Back to School

Yesterday was an awesomely long day for me… I wrapped up a whole slew of projects, that I can’t wait to share… And one in particular, may have involved setting up a ladder in the middle of the road to get the best angle, in between cars driving by.

It was so much fun. But man, am I tired. And my brain is still feeling a little fried this morning, so I’ll keep this short and sweet…

I recently made these watercolor canvas lunch bags for Momtastic to dive into back to school season. Obviously, these are great for kids, but I also think they’re minimal enough to work for adults as well. I’d use a lunch bag like this in a heartbeat. Though, I’d probably go with a more subdued color pallete (i.e. black and grey).
